Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Regression is a thriller with horror elements. It deals with the possibility of satanic cults and includes imagined/dreamed rituals, including slicing up babies and eating them (this is strongly implied but not actually shown). There's some blood and discussion of a father abusing his teen daughter; other violent/upsetting moments include a suicide, fighting, punching, and guns being drawn (but not fired). A woman has sex with a man, presumably during a dream; she straddles him, and her buttocks are shown as she grinds on him. There's another very brief image of a couple having sex in a car. Language is infrequent but includes "f--k," "bitch," and "s--t." The movie tries to make a point about the danger of succumbing to mass hysteria, but it doesn't really work. Not many teens will care, despite the fact that Harry Potter's Emma Watson stars.

Tries to make a point about how people, if they're not careful, can be swept away by panic and false beliefs. Unfortunately, this message is saved as a "surprise" for the end of the movie and doesn't leave much room for pondering.
