Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Japanese horror remake features frequent tense scenes and some grisly deaths, with mutilated bodies and screaming victims. The movie's thematic focus on child abuse is vague and incoherent, but it might still provoke questions from attentive younger viewers. Violence includes choking, burning, stabbing, a rod going through a chest, and a girl getting hit by a train. Several girls show cleavage, and there's a very brief shot of a college girl in her bra. Language includes "s--t" and "damn," and there's some drinking and smoking.

Sexual Content

Several outfits show cleavage and toned midriffs. During a college party, two students are shown briefly engaged in foreplay (she's down to her bra).


Repeated slasher-style assaults, with victims grabbed, dragged, and mutilated. Several jump scenes. Very first scene shows a child slammed into a window as the building behind her burns. Scary images include cracked faces, yucky bugs, and a rat in a sink. Grisly deaths include drowning, being hit by a train, being punctured by a construction rod, choking, burning, asphyxiation of a young asthma victim. Discussions of child abuse and trauma. Flashbacks show a mother approaching her daughter with a cigarette to burn her. Body in morgue is days old, discolored, in a body bag. A young girl cuts her sister with a knife, upsetting their mother.


Several uses each of the following: "s--t" (a couple with "bull"), "hell," and "damn."

Social Behavior

A mean spirit traumatizes and kills assorted screaming victims. A heroic girl tries to save herself and friends, to little avail.


Brief shots of the following: Motorola cell phone, Dell and Apple computers, Pizza Hut.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Brief cigarette smoking (and use of cigarettes to burn a child's arm). College party shows students drinking (beer and liquor).
