MPAA Rated R for some violence/disturbing images, and language including some sexual references

Sex & Nudity

  • A man's backside (butt) is shown nude, while he is standing by the lake from afar.
  • A man is seen nude from behind while sitting, he has his legs together so you don't see his frontal privates.
  • A man is seen taking a woman's clothes off, down to her underwear. It looks like they are about to have sex, when the camera cuts away. This scene is at 1 hour 28 minutes 40 seconds mark.
  • Around minute 38 right after the main character comes busting out the front door of the house you'll see people running by through the trees. Right after this you'll see three females climb a fence, two of them are wearing tshirts and bikini bottoms instead of pants.

Violence & Gore

  • Moderate scenes of violence including heads slamming into objects and people putting bags over character's heads alongside frequent demonic jump scares.
  • The film is more scary than violent. A woman has her head bashed into a mirror with some blood dripping from the wound, disturbing imagery of a bunch of dead bodies in bags, people jumping off a cliff resulting in suicide (aftermath not shown), discussions of suicide, a woman is possessed in a way with bone crunches and screaming and violence towards women. Not so graphic.
