PG-13: Language, Scary Moments Including Cultic Images And Brief Sensuality
There is a Satanic theme to the movie. Some horror films are seen on a TV, played as in jokes but they maybe frightening to younger viewers.
A man watches flips through channels on TV. One shows a scene from "Texas Chainsaw" where a chainsaw comes through the wall. We see the man watching as we hear the screams. The next clip shows the girl from "The Exorcist" vomit on the priest.
Many human skulls are found in the trunk of a car.
A man is put in an ambulance where his satanic neighbors explain how they murdered the people who used to live in their house, and claimed the house. They don't go into much detail though. They then try to hold the man down and euthanize him with a needle. After that they have a minor fight seen, then the ambulance crashes into a house and causes a fire. Both men survive.
There's a nightmare sequence which involves two chainsaws, an oversized barbecue, a crowd of cloaked men chanting satanic phrases, a pig mask, two human skulls, some lightening, some pentagrams, two axes, a demented ice cream man, a sword, and just a little bit of blood. The scene is funny in a dark humor way though. It's still definitely the scariest scene in the movie.
A man loses consciousness and begins unconsciously chanting something in some strange language. The man standing next to him grabs a book of demonology and begins reading it. He is able to translate what he is saying, and it translates to some satanic phrases about killing people and satan.
