MPAA Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, disturbing images, language and some drug references

Sex & Nudity

  • Although this is unintentional, you can see the outline of a woman's nipples when she is in the well.
  • A woman is seen in her black bra and panties while searching for a dress in her closet.
  • A teen girl asks her friend if she and her boyfriend "did anything" during their weekend together, and she teases her about what may have gone on.
  • The main character's child wants to be closer with his father, but the unmarried man tells his son that he and his mother were "young" when they had him.

Violence & Gore

  • A horse escapes its trailer aboard a ferry and accidentally jumps overboard, causing it to get sucked underneath and into the propellers. This is only implied.
  • A man electrocutes himself (very brief)
  • A woman holds a dead girl and watches as she decomposes into dirt. Rather even cartoonish than graphic.
  • A woman's nose bleeds and later a man and a boy both have bloody noses.
  • A woman takes a shower and we see some bloody water going down the drain.
  • The movie is most known for it's scary scenes where the video is played. The rumor in the movie is after you watch the video you die in seven days. The video only lasts about thirty seconds.


Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • People smoke cigarettes. A woman briefly mentions 'getting high'.
  • A teenager tells her friend to ask her mom where she keeps the Vicodin.
  • In one scene, a man is seen buying cigarettes/drugs and the woman who sells it says that he "will die"

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • This movie has a 'race against time' plot device, where, if the characters fail, they can be killed by the fearsome antagonist. This idea can be distressing and disquieting for some viewers.
  • Almost the entire film has a gloomy, depressing atmosphere.
  • The movie overall relies upon psychological and slow-burn horror to unnerve and frighten viewers.
  • The ghastly stringy-haired appearance of Samara, who walks in eerie, jerking movements, may frighten some viewers.
  • Several but unexpected jumpscares are used, such as the brief shot of a teen girl's dead body in the closet.
