Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Vatican Tapes is a demon-possession horror movie. It has lots of jump-scares and spooky images, with some bloody cuts and wounds and dislocated limbs. Birds attack, and people fight with one another and try to hurt themselves (a man smashes light bulbs into his own eyes, his back to the camera). A couple kisses, and he grabs her bottom; there are also references to oral sex and to a call girl. Language is minimal, with a few exclamations and the use of "ass." Director Mark Neveldine has a cult following, which could draw in cinema-savvy teens, but the movie could also spark discussions about the danger of false idols.
