Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the film concerns the antichrist and the "end of days," and uses brief images of recent disasters (9/11, Katrina) to suggest the time is near. The film includes extreme violence and bloody images of deaths engineered by Satan/evil forces; the most gruesome images include characters speared and beheaded and a knockdown fight between a father and the nanny. The film also includes a mother saying she wants to abort her second child, seeing a psychiatrist, being terrorized and injured by her son (a scary fall from a balcony), and a father's decision to kill his own young son. The film also contains some strong language, including two uses of the f-word.
Katherine appears in a tub, but nudity is only implied.
Deaths are bloody, grotesque, and explicit (car explodes and burns passenger, men speared and decapitated by falling architecture); big loud dogs attack several characters; woman hangs herself off a rooftop in public; mother falls from balcony, with flailing limbs and plaintive scream (this might bother younger viewers even more than the bloody stuff); nanny poisons and throttles incapacitated woman in hospital bed; father tries to kill his son (using multiple knives, inside a church).-
Two f-words, one "damn," one "hell," frequent discussions of God and Satan, lots of screaming in fear and fury.
No one acts very admirably.
