SEX/NUDITY 1 - In one scene, a man in a robe and a fully clothed woman kiss. A woman wears some cleavage-revealing tops.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man falls through a glass door and dies (we see his bloody body lying on the ground). A woman falls from a ledge (it's implied that she dies) and a woman is hit by an electrical bolt (we see a small bloody circle on her forehead as she falls to the ground). A man clutches his chest and apparently has a heart attack. It's implied that a dog has eaten part of a corpse (we only see some blood on the corpse's shirtsleeve). Several scenes of paranormal activity and property damage: books fly off shelves (one hits a boy in the head), a basketball bounces around a room and destroys most of its contents, papers ignite, knives fly through the air and nearly hit a woman's head and a refrigerator pushes a woman against a wall (we later see her with a bruised face). A woman is nearly smashed in a door that repeatedly opens and closes. We see a dog barking and growling at people a few times throughout the movie; and a dog chases after two boys and nearly attacks one of them. lightning strikes a house; we see lots of sparks and part of the roof caves in, nearly hitting people. A man loses control of his car and flips it; we later see him lying in a hospital bed with bloody cuts on his face and bandages on his arms.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
