DON'T KNOCK TWICE is a US horror film in which a mother and daughter are attacked by the spirit of a malevolent witch.

Threat

Characters are menaced by a sinister figure during sequences of sustained threat and multiple 'jump scare' moments. People are raised up into the air and dragged away by an invisible force. In a vision sequence, the figure grabs a child and lifts him up, leaving only his legs in view. There is a crunching sound and we see blood streaming down the child's legs.

Injury detail

A character experiences a vision of a woman cutting her own throat with a large knife, causing a spurt of blood and a large bloody smear on a wall. In another scene, a character steps on a long nail and is forced to pull it out of her foot. Later, the character reopens the wound using her fingernails in order to use her blood to write on a wall.

Language

There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k'), in addition to milder terms such as 'shit', 'bloody' and 'damn'.

There are non-graphic references to the abduction and murder of children. Other issues include verbal references to a character's past struggles with drug addiction.
