Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there are mild scary moments in this film and that the ghosts turn out to be more than just the characters' run-away imaginations. A headless ghost threatens the main characters with a knife. A scary nanny ghost pokes her head through a mirror. Five people are "trapped between this world and the next" after being struck by lightning, and a woman speaks of them being banished to hell "for an eternity of pain." Eerie green rain falls down on the ghost of a little tap-dancing girl.
