Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Several very sudden jumps scares.
  • The dog's death may be upsetting for animal lovers, but it is not gory; its body is only seen from a distance.
  • Very atmospheric and tense, and the jumpscares are effective thanks to the great buildup.
  • The doll may be intense for some viewers.
  • A woman, possessed by a demon, tries to kill people. This may be too intense for some viewers, though no one is killed.
