Movie Parental Guide

nudity 4/10 The sides of a woman's bare breasts can be seen when she takes off her top. We can also see she's wearing fairly skimpy panties. A woman wears low-cut tops in several scenes. She can also be seen wearing skimpy panties that reveal part of her buttocks in several scenes. A woman lifts a man out of a bathtub and into a wheelchair. (Only his bare back, stomach and chest can be seen.)
violence 7/10 For a PG-13 film, The Skeleton Key is very vicious and violent, more so than such other modern PG-13 ghost films as "The Apparition" or "The Eye" People are beaten, thrown around, slammed into things, and choked. Bones are broken, but most of this happens with minimal blood. A woman goes into a dark attic room where she finds jars of what looks like organs, a monkey head, and a human head with eyes and mouth stitched shut; she drops a jar on the floor and it breaks -- it contained a skin sack stitched up with something inside it. A woman is seen in a dream with her eyes and mouth stitched up. A character finds a man pulling himself along a roof (He is partially paralyzed) the man falls from the roof onto the ground below (he is not seriously injured). A persons broken legs have large lumps under the skin and gaping wounds. This character drags themselves around and this is very disturbing. In a flashback, a couple are beaten and hung and their bodies are burned. This is disturbing but not graphic. A woman cuts her hand with a knife and smears the blood onto the floor around her. A woman cuts the legs and head off a dead chicken. We see alligator heads with sharp teeth in their mouths, and bones dangling from strings. A floor standing mirror falls onto a person knocking them to the ground. A woman drives her car into a locked gate, she tries to ram it in order to open it and crashes into a birdbath. We hear about a man abusing "his help."
profanity 7/10 1 F-word, 4 scatological terms, 2 anatomical terms, 4 mild obscenities, 1 derogatory term for African-Americans, 1 religious profanity, 7 religious exclamations.
alcohol 4/10 People are shown drinking alcohol in a few bar scenes, and we see people drinking alcohol at a party. A woman drinks tea that has been drugged, and a woman says that she is giving a man a prescription medicine to help with his ailments. A woman smokes cigarettes in several scenes and she says that she smokes a lot and enjoys it.
frightening 8/10 Some of the scenes mentioned in the Violence/Gore section may be frightening/intense for viewers. The end of the film is very scary, and unexpected. It is upsetting. Total Content Advisory: 30/50- The movie is not bloody but very intense and very violent 14-15+
