Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Devil Inside is a graphic demon possession/exorcist movie presented in fake-documentary style -- much like The Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity, or The Last Exorcism. It pretends to be real and has a website that viewers can visit to find out more about the "victims" and their stories. Expect lots of scary and disturbing sequences (especially one that shows a possessed priest trying to drown a baby), jump-out-of-your-seat shocks, heavy blood, and dead bodies. There's also strong language (including "f--k" and "s--t"), some innuendo and sexual banter, and cigarette smoking in one scene.
Some sexual banter and innuendo. A man on the street "checks out" the heroine as she walks by.
In the most shocking sequence, a possessed priest tries to drown a baby during a baptism. Also lots of dead bodies and bloody wounds; a man shoots himself in the face on camera. There are scary, disturbing scenes with screaming, sudden shocks and violence. Possessed characters are twisted up like pretzels. A violent car crash is shown from inside the car. A possessed woman is shown to be bleeding from her vagina.
"F--k" is used about half a dozen times. "C--k" appears once in subtitles; other language includes "c--t," "s--t," "hell," "oh my God" (as an exclamation), and derogatory homosexual slurs. In terms of religious discussion and exorcisms, God and Jesus Christ are mentioned several times.
Two young priests try to help people whom the church can't or won't help. To do this, they're breaking the rules, though they continually weigh the pros and cons of their actions.
