The Grudge 2
Rating & Content Info
Why is The Grudge 2 rated PG-13? The Grudge 2 is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for mature thematic material, disturbing images/terror/violence, and some sensuality.
Two killings—one involving a fall from a building and the other a depicted choking with gruesome sound effects—are the darkest scenes in this movie that also involves mythic spirituality, possession and discussion of exorcism. Many scenes are intended to scare, usually by including an image of a ghost. Other disturbing depictions include a young girl drinking milk and then vomiting it back into the bottle, a ghost pulling people off buildings and into full bathtubs. In another scene, a woman pours hot fat on a man’s head, then hits him with the pan and knocks him unconscious. Sexual content involves a young girl (who appears to be a prostitute) waiting in a bed for a showering man (his upper naked back is shown). A secondary character is a chain smoker. Language includes a handful of mild profanities and terms of deity.

Ghost stories have been haunting movies for many years. The Others and The Sixth Sense are two that are bound to send shivers up your spine (but should be carefully considered before showing to teen audiences). Alfred Hitchcock masterfully creates suspense without supernatural means in the films, Rear Window and Lifeboat.
