Why Is Uninvited Rated PG-13?

p>All the usual suspects—jump scenes, eerie music and dark rooms—make their way into this horror flick. Blood-covered characters, carpets and kitchen knives, along with charred bodies, gruesome appendages and a dismembered ghoul are shown. A drowned body is pulled from a lake. Gore effects, like blood running from a keyhole and contorting bodies, also add to the effects. A huge explosion causes death. A girl’s scars from cutting herself are seen. A teen couple kisses passionately at a beach party. Glimpses and sounds of an unmarried adult couple engaged in sex are depicted, as well as several discussions about sexual activity. A medical nurse drugs teens with tranquilizers. Teens and adults engage in infrequent hand-to-hand fighting. Characters consume alcohol in a number of scenes and a teen is repeatedly portrayed as drunk. Profanities, scatological slang, terms of Deity and a strong, sexual expletive are used.
