Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Other Side of the Door is a horror movie about a mother (The Walking Dead's Sarah Wayne Callies) who tries to communicate with her dead son and accidentally brings back his malevolent ghost. Language, drinking, and smoking aren't issues, but there's plenty of scariness and violence, including a couple of bloody stabbings. Perhaps even more disturbing is the death of a young boy while trapped in a sinking car; his mother can't save both him and his sister. There are also plenty of ghosts and creatures, jump-scares, and other spooky, creepy, or startling moments. Plus, a woman takes a pill overdose, a dog is potentially harmed (off screen), and a married couple has a very mild kissing, possibly-leading-to-sex scene.

Sexual Content

A married couple kisses while in bed, and she removes her top (nothing sensitive shown). They appear to begin making love, but the scene ends.


Stabbings, gushing blood. Demon possession and ritual. Children are in peril: A child dies, stuck in a sinking car filling with water. A woman overdoses on pills but is saved. Bite mark on a young girl's shoulder. Jump-scares. Creepy ghosts and other scary figures. A dead body stuck under a car suddenly twists its neck and opens its eyes. Pets die. Digging up a grave. Cockroaches swarming. Dog possibly injured/killed.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

The movie suggests that there are no easy answers; a price must be paid for the things we think we want. It also presents a very white-centric vision of another culture.
