The Sixth Sense | 1999 | PG-13 | - 3.6.3

A child psychologist counsels a boy who can see and talk to ghosts. With Bruce Willis, Haley Joel Osment, Toni Collette, Olivia Williams, Donnie Wahlberg, Mischa Barton, Trevor Morgan, Jose L. Rodriguez and M. Night Shyamalan. [1:54]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A couple of kisses; in one scene, a man and woman kiss on a couch, then go upstairs to the bedroom and begin to undress (no nudity or even underwear is shown). We see a nude woman through a shower door (her body is blurry but we know she's naked), a man in his underwear for a long time, a boy in his underwear, a woman wearing a bra and a woman in a cleavage-revealing top.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A man shoots another man, puts the gun to his head and kills himself (at that point no blood is shown, but the firing of the shot is surprising and scary; later, we see the bullet hole in the man's stomach, a puddle of blood on the back of the man's shirt and a larger puddle of blood on the couch he's sitting on). Three ghosts are hanging from a ceiling with nooses around their necks. A woman poisons a girl by putting something in her drink. A man punches a glass door. We see the ghost of a woman with a badly burned face, one with blood on her face, one with black eyes and cuts on her wrists, one with blood running down her face and the ghost of a boy with a big patch of blood on the back of his head. We see numerous scars on a boy's forearm and wrists, plus some cuts on his back. A boy gets locked in a closet, and a ghost reaches from under the bed and grabs a boy's leg (both scenes are very frightening). We see many ghosts who appear as they did just before they died; also, ghosts approach, scare and talk to a boy many times (often these scenes are frightening). A ghost vomits and a boy in his underwear urinates in a toilet.

LANGUAGE 3 - A couple of anatomical and scatological references, a few mild obscenities and some name-calling.

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.
