Two killings—one involving a fall from a building and the other a depicted choking with gruesome sound effects—are the darkest scenes in this movie that also involves mythic spirituality, possession and discussion of exorcism. Many scenes are intended to scare, usually by including an image of a ghost. Other disturbing depictions include a young girl drinking milk and then vomiting it back into the bottle, a ghost pulling people off buildings and into full bathtubs. In another scene, a woman pours hot fat on a man’s head, then hits him with the pan and knocks him unconscious. Sexual content involves a young girl (who appears to be a prostitute) waiting in a bed for a showering man (his upper naked back is shown). A secondary character is a chain smoker. Language includes a handful of mild profanities and terms of deity.
