Why Is The Eye Rated PG-13?

The Eye is likely to be a poor choice for anyone who doesn’t enjoy “made you jump” moments. Depictions of suicide will also make it inappropriate for many viewers. During the movie, the protagonist sees people being lead away to death by menacing looking humanoids. As well, she has repeated visions of people being burned in a fire, during which we see people in flames and bleeding. Two characters are depicted committing suicide—one jumping from a high-rise window and another who is seen explicitly dying from hanging. A woman cuts herself on glass and is shown bleeding. A naked woman is seen behind an obscured glass shower door—no explicit details are evident. Half-a-dozen profanities are heard, including a scatological expletive. A woman drinks sherry to calm her nerves.
