Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this horror movie -- which was adapted from a best-selling novel by Christian authors Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti -- has adult themes like repentance, sin, and suffering. The violence isn't as over-the-top as in many other horror movies (much of the worst of it occurs off screen or against people viewers later find out aren't even human), but the film's tone can become fairly intense. The movie's moral message is strongly present -- the lead couple renew their marriage while being pursued by a psychopath -- and it's clear that their reconnection and intrinsic goodness are what save them. While there's not much in the way of inappropriate sex, language, or drug/alcohol content, there is some fairly stereotypical depiction of Southerners; the villains are all depicted as creepy, cackling hillbillies.
