Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this ominous, religious-themed thriller has lots of violent scenes, many involving children. Images include a river of blood, dead fish and frogs (some beset by maggots and flies), dead children's bodies and bones, a rape scene (cut into close ups and made confusing because the victim is drugged), the ritual sacrifice of children, scary shadows in creaky houses, faces covered with oozy boils, bloody walls and floors, a mural of a lynching, suicide, locusts attacking men, and flames shooting from the sky. Characters discuss faith and skepticism, and there's a little bit of drinking and some swearing (including at least one "f--k").

Sexual Content

Katherine wears tight tops; during a nightmarish, fragmented rape scene, sweaty body parts and her face appear in close-up.

Violence

Several jump scenes in dark places; flashback scenes show sweaty, delirious poisoned Chilean villagers as well as angry Sudanese villagers dying of starvation and attacking white missionaries; images of dead fish and frogs in a river of blood and flies and maggots on fish; a dead boy's body (desiccated and creepy) appears several times; deranged cows attack a truck; scary point-of-view explorations of a dark house, a basement, and the woods; a nightmarish rape scene is intercut with a painful flashback; a scary "African" figure appears behind or near Katherine a few times; a woman commits suicide with handgun (off screen, though her body falls in the next shot); men are attacked by a swarm of locusts; discovery of skulls, bones, and bodies in a crypt; flames from the sky; a child is tied to table and threatened with ritual sacrifice (she screams); people with guns and knives threaten a young girl; a man grabs a woman and threatens her with a knife as they are swirled up in flames.

Language

At least one use of "f--k," plus other language ("s--t," "damn," etc.).

Social Behavior

A former missionary rediscovers her faith via signs from the devil -- a route that involves multiple deaths, a cult that sacrifices children, rape, and suicide.

Consumerism

Mac PowerBook.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Beer drinking, homebrew drinking (which leads to Katherine's seeming hallucination), character carries a cigar.
