Thanks to an untimely demise via drowning, a young couple end up as poltergeists in their New England farmhouse, where they fail to meet the challenge of scaring away the insufferable new owners, who want to make drastic changes. In desperation, the undead newlyweds turn to an expert frightmeister, but he's got a diabolical agenda of his own.

Movie Parental Guide

nudity Two ghosts make moaning noises that a girl mistakenly thinks is her parents during intercourse. A scene is shown in which Betelgeuse mentions that he hasn't gotten any "action" in 600 years, and then visits a brothel staffed by devil women who are scantily clad. Betelgeuse tries to look up Barbara's skirt. He also forcefully kisses her, and grabs her. All of this is when they first meet him. Betelgeuse caresses a dead girl's thigh. Betelgeuse grabs his crotch and hoists it up in a slightly offensive manner (intended to be a middle finger-type gesture) and makes a jerking-off hand gesture (implying masturbation) after saying "Nice f*ckin' model!" Betelgeuse as a giant snake slithers across the floor and chuckles as he slithers past Delia looking up her skirt. Betelgeuse tries to force a teen girl to marry him (as a loophole). He acts suggestively throughout.
violence 5/10 100% played for laughs. A woman rips her face off, and her eyeballs hang from their sockets. (Comical, but may scare younger viewers) A man stretches his face so that it looks like he's got a beak and you can't see his eyes. Soon after, a woman's eyes roll back bloodshot and she stretches her face into a crocodile mouth with eyes in. Two characters drown, but it occurs off-screen and is not graphic (it is actually very funny). A dead woman sits in a waiting room. She's been sawed in half. Her lower half sits on one side of a man, the upper half sits on the other side. She is animated (she smacks him with a book when he touches her leg.) One ghost looks like he's been flattened by a truck. He has tire marks across his "body" and he slips into a crevice in a wall. Rather funny. We see a close-up shot of a housefly being grabbed by Betelgeuse and pulled into his lair. Nothing else is seen, but then we hear what is obviously Betelgeuse belching. Betelgeuse eats a fly as a reference to the 1958 horror movie "The Fly". A woman / ghost refers to having an "accident" and holds up her wrists - which had been slit, suggesting she died by suicide. A menacing giant snake with a human head and long sharp teeth holds a man upside down over a stair railing, then drops him. In one scene Lydia contemplates suicide and writes a note saying she has plummeted off a bridge.
profanity Two uses of "f*ck" (one is harder to hear as more than one person is talking at that time), and two of "sh*t". Two uses of "Jesus" One use of "p*ssed off" G'd is said at the very beginning of the film.
alcohol 2/10 Overall smoking is depicted as an act which leads to a violent and unpleasant death. A ghost woman who was a smoker in life has a tracheotomy wound in her neck and blows the smoke from her cigarettes through it. Another ghost is depicted as a horrible charred skeleton/body, the implication being that he burned to death when a cigarette caught his bed on fire. Several living people smoke cigarettes and drink cocktails at a dinner party. A man is offered a cigarette by a comically burned and charred animated corpse.
frightening Constant references to death & the afterlife, including depictions of dead characters, ghosts & other creatures which may frighten or upset younger viewers. Otho performs a seance on Adam and Barbara, that causes them to instantly wither and age grotesquely. Barbara's hands and feet crumble to dust, and Adam's jawbone falls off. They are later restored. In the Twisting Corridor in the underworld Barbara and Adam see lost souls rising and screaming in a hellish and psychedelic nightmare world. A janitor leans in and creepily explains that these people have been exorcised. What makes it even worse is that this is a fate that Adam and Barbara could have suffered later in the movie. MPAA/USA - Rated PG for language, violence and scary images. BBFC/UK - Rated 15 (strong comic horror).
