Why Is The Eye Rated PG-13?
The Eye is rated PG-13 for violence/terror and disturbing content
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Eye...
The Eye is likely to be a poor choice for anyone who doesn’t enjoy “made you jump” moments. Depictions of suicide will also make it inappropriate for many viewers. During the movie, the protagonist sees people being lead away to death by menacing looking humanoids. As well, she has repeated visions of people being burned in a fire, during which we see people in flames and bleeding. Two characters are depicted committing suicide—one jumping from a high-rise window and another who is seen explicitly dying from hanging. A woman cuts herself on glass and is shown bleeding. A naked woman is seen behind an obscured glass shower door—no explicit details are evident. Half-a-dozen profanities are heard, including a scatological expletive. A woman drinks sherry to calm her nerves.
Home Video Viewing Alternatives
Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to The Eye.
The original “I see dead people movie” is The Sixth Sense. A mother, forced to live in the dark because of her children’s hypersensitivity to light, begins to believe their home may be haunted in The Others. This horror movie is a remake of an Asian film, just like One Missed Call and The Grudge.
