This haunted house film has all the usual elements of the horror genre, but also serves up some disturbing visual images and themes. There are frequent depictions of a man mutilating corpses and a living teen is shown with graffiti carved all over his skin. Several scenes depict bodies (including children) in various states of decay and some that have been severely burnt. During séances, people are shown with “ectoplasm” coming out of their mouths. A man drives home late at night in a drunken state, and then verbally threatens his family while removing and breaking all the lights in the house. A young man pours flammable liquid on a pile of bodies in a home and then sets the place on fire, presumably with the intent of killing himself. A young woman is seen in a shower (no nudity is shown) and is “attacked” with the shower curtain by an unseen force. Frequent “jump scenes” are included. Language includes four terms of Christian deity along with a single mild profanity and a single scatological expletive.
