Why is House at the End of the Street rated PG-13? House at the End of the Street is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of violence and terror, thematic elements, language, some teen partying and brief drug material.

Violence: A child with a knife is shown struggling with a mother and father, eventually murdering both of them. A child falls from a playground swing. A struggling girl is physically held captive and her neck is broken. A character is shot and killed. After discovering his car is being destroyed by a mob, a young man engages in a fight that results in a character suffering a broken bone. A character is stabbed. A group of young people throws an incendiary device into a home, starting it on fire. A girl deliberately burns her arm as part of an escape attempt. Domestic squabbles occur between a mother and daughter.

Sexual Content: In two different scenes young, unmarried couples are seen kissing passionately. During an argument a teen girl implies that her mother thinks she’s having “unprotected sex.” Teens in swimwear at a pool are seen.

Language: Infrequent use of mild and moderate profanities, as well as scatological terms.

Drugs/Alcohol: Teen drinking and drunkenness is depicted. Adults are shown using recreational drugs. A woman drinks wine and appears intoxicated afterward.

Other: Teen gambling is portrayed. Teens lie to parents about extracurricular activities and their whereabouts.

The script of this movie assumes teens are highly susceptible to the influence of peers. For example Elissa seems desperate to find a boyfriend and rescuing him from his problems. Do you feel this is an accurate representation?
