Why Is Disturbia Rated PG-13?

After spending the afternoon fishing, Kale and his father are involved in a horrific automobile accident that claims one life and causes bloody injuries in another person. Before the incident, Kale drives along a winding road while talking on his cellphone. At school, Kale punches his teacher in the face after he inconsiderately brings up the accident. Assigned to house arrest, Kale plays video games, watches trash TV and spies on the neighbors. He observes a woman swim in a bikini and later undress (back nudity is seen). He also sees young boys viewing pornography. (Distant but distinct scenes of partially concealed female frontal nudity are portrayed.) Blood-splattered household items and decomposing corpses are shown. During a fight with an intruder, Kale and the man exchange punches, and use furniture, sports equipment and kitchen implements as weapons. Characters are impaled with garden tools, stabbed, forcefully hit and kidnapped. Profanities, crude terms for body parts and frequent scatological slang is used.
