Rating & Content Info
Why is Poltergeist rated PG-13? Poltergeist is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense frightening sequences, brief suggestive material, and some language.
Violence: Frequent scenes depict physical and emotional distress of characters (often children) that are subjected to trauma from spirits in the afterlife. Characters are pulled into a dark and scary realm where obscured images of skeletons and partially decomposed humans are seen. Some characters display injuries that appear to be deep scars. A family engages in verbal confrontation.
Sexual Content: A married couple plans to engage in sexual activity but is quickly interrupted by a child.
Language: A character says “eff-ing”. A scatological term and other mild profanities are infrequently heard.
Drugs/Alcohol: A father frequently turns to alcohol to alleviate stress.
From the Studio: Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever. © Fox
