This teen horror (all characters are depicted as college aged) relies on typical scary conventions to provide its young audience with a sense of fright (stormy nights, ghoulish faces, etc.). More serious content elements involve a plot exploring satanic possession from a Jewish perspective. Characters depicted as possessed by evil spirits distort and disfigure their bodies, and brutally attack others. A little boy is run over by a car. A person is stabbed, another falls from a balcony, and many more are involved in a séance that results in similar depictions and aggressive confrontations. Sexual content includes infrequent sexual innuendo, an unwed pregnancy and an unmarried couple sleeping together. A girl is seen in underwear on a couple of occasions. A single strong sexual expletive is heard along with other infrequent scatological and religious terms. Drinks are served in a bar (a main character orders a non-alcoholic beverage, however some of the other customers may be underage).
