Rating & Content Info
Why is Lights Out rated PG-13? Lights Out is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for terror throughout, violence including disturbing images, some thematic material and brief drug content.
Violence: A character is seen holding a gun to the head and pulls the trigger; the film cuts immediately at the sound of the shot. A character is distantly seen dead on the floor; it’s not clear if the body is dismembered or beaten, but it is obviously covered in blood. Characters, including a child, are dragged across floors, grabbed from the ceiling or thrown at walls by a mysterious entity. Characters repeatedly shoot a metaphysical being. A child places his trust in his mother, yet she is too mentally incompetent to properly protect him. Many scenes feature “jump” moments through the use of startling images and loud music cues.
Sexual Content: A male character asks if he can stay with a woman overnight: he lounges on her bed while she showers. She eventually asks him to leave and he complies. Embracing and kissing are seen.
Language: Infrequent profanities include scatological slang and other mild vulgar expressions. A term of Christian deity is used as an expletive.
Alcohol / Drug Use: A hookah pipe is briefly seen on a side table. Beer is in a fridge is shown.
