Parents need to know that The Night House is a horror/thriller film about a woman (Rebecca Hall) who's haunted by vivid nightmares and other things after her husband's death via suicide. Many sequences include brief, intense violence against women, including very rough treatment, strangling, and heads being bashed against mirrors. Characters are thrown down stairs and bound, and viewers see dead bodies and some blood. A gun is shown, suicide is discussed, and there are several jump scares and creepy moments. A couple kisses passionately and starts to remove their clothing, a man's naked buttocks are seen, and there's dialogue about extramarital affairs, as well as some sexually suggestive dialogue. Language includes several uses of "f--k," plus "bulls--t" and "a--hole." The grief-stricken lead character drinks heavily, both in bars and at home, and appears drunk in more than one scene. The movie doesn't always click, but it has several excellent scares and a strong lead performance.
