The Last Exorcism
Rating & Content Info
Why is The Last Exorcism rated PG-13? The Last Exorcism is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for disturbing violent content and terror, some sexual references and thematic material.
Violence: The corpses of disemboweled and bloody animals are depicted on a couple of occasions. A girl is repeatedly seen wearing blood-soaked clothing. A young man has his face slashed open with a knife (while the act is not seen, gratuitous amounts of blood are shown later). A character throws dirt clods at a car with people inside. A character is jolted with a battery’s current. Scary sounds and convulsions are part of an exorcism. A character is chained to a bed, locked in rooms and later threatened with a gun. Bullets are fired in an attempt to scare or kill characters. A girl appears to be drowning a baby in a bathtub. A cat is attacked and killed (bloody imagery is shown). A character breaks her fingers. It is implied that characters are burned, hacked to death and beheaded.
Sexual Content: Sexual activity is implied between characters. An unwed pregnancy is talked about and a scene of childbirth is shown. Incest is briefly discussed. A character confesses his homosexual interests.
Language: The script includes less than a handful of terms of Deity used as profanities. However, these terms are used frequently in religious settings or during the exorcisms.
Alcohol/Drug Use: None noted.
Other: A character licks and kisses the arm of a woman following the exorcism and later vomits violently. Blood-splattered pictures and occult symbols cover the walls of a home. Satanic rituals are depicted along with frequent discussions of devilish phenomena. Some audience members may be subject to motion sickness from the handheld camera work.
