This typical teen horror movie features many “jump scenes,” scary sound effects, and gruesome images. Scenes of people and corpses covered in blood are common, as are brief instances of violent acts involving knives, air powered nail guns, and vehicles. Occult themes are also evident, with the plot involving a ghost who is haunting the characters (one of which is heavily into “Goth” culture). One male character is a chain cigarette smoker, and another female character tries to light a cigarette but is interrupted. A woman hanging by her feet reveals her abdomen when her shirt slides down, and another couple is briefly seen in a sexual position—no explicit nudity is seen in either situation. Moderate profanities are numerous, along with many terms of Christian deity and a sexual expletive.
