Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Jessabelle is a horror film about ghosts. Though it comes from one of the filmmakers behind the ultra-gory Saw franchise, this one isn't nearly as gory. But although blood is minimal, there's fighting and struggling, scary ghost stuff, a gruesome nightmare sequence, a character burned alive, and some general meanness -- as well as a life-changing car crash. Language includes several uses of "s--t," plus a few uses of "goddamn" and "ass." A flask is shown, and the main character drinks whisky in one scene. In one scene, she wears a wet tank top after coming out of the bathtub, but there's no nudity. Teen horror hounds will no doubt be clamoring to see it.

Sexual Content

The female lead wears a wet tank top after a bath. Nothing explicit is visible.


Not much blood or gore. Ghosts take solid form and attack victims. Intense fighting, with struggling, kicking, and punching. A character's head is bashed. In a dream sequence, the main character witnesses a gory operating table, with some blood shown. A sudden car crash. A character is burned alive in a shed (seen from the outside). Ghosts do scary things like scream and spew icky stuff in people's faces. A tiny coffin for a baby is dug up and opened; suggestions of violence toward the baby. Some kind of dead animal is shown. Guns are briefly fired. Some meanness and cruelty toward main character in wheelchair.


"S--t" is heard several times. "Goddamn" and "ass" are heard more than once. "Jesus" is used as an exclamation.

Social Behavior

Sometimes it's not a good idea to go home again.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Main character drinks several glasses of whisky, but doesn't appear to be drunk. A flask is shown in her father's car. Some prescription pills are found in a drawer.
