Why Is 1408 Rated PG-13?

This thriller isn’t appropriate for children, and even teens may be disturbed by the film’s images. Although explicit violence is somewhat limited, the movie does contain depictions of suicides by jumping and hanging, and depictions of a cut hand. The portrayal of paranormal activities (such as objects moving and floors and walls caving in) and many jump scenes are intended to terrify. A deliberately started fire puts the lives of others at risk. Themes regarding life after death, the existence of God, and supernatural phenomenon are discussed. Infrequent profanities are heard, including one use of a sexual expletive. Sexual content is limited to very brief shots of a woman in a bikini and a topless female in a classical painting, as well as a man who checks out some adult video titles, but chooses not to watch them. Two characters are shown smoking, and alcohol used to the point of inebriation.
