Rating & Content Info
Why is The Possession rated PG-13? The Possession is rated PG-13 by the MPAA PG-13 for mature thematic material involving violence and disturbing sequences. (Appealed and reedited from an R rating.)
Violence: An evil spirit causes people to contort their bodies and damage themselves through self-inflicted injury. A woman is tossed about a room and has blood oozing from her eyes. Another woman has similar experiences and is eventually thrown to her death from a second-story window. A child is shown with facial disfigurement, and a foreign body is seen in the back of her throat. A hand appears from a characters mouth. The production includes frequent scary depictions, “jump” scenes and moments of peril. A character walks barefoot over a floor covered in broken glass. A large truck suddenly hits a car, and it is implied the vehicle’s one occupant has died.
Sexual Content: A man makes a veiled sexual remark to his ex-wife.
Language: The script includes a scatological slang, term of Christian deity and a few other mild profanities.
Drugs/Alcohol: A character drinks wine to relieve stress.
