Alice gets drunk and engages in a sexual act with her neighbors. The neighbors are considerably older than Alice, and it's hinted that she was likely underage at the time of the encounter.

Alice had a boyfriend but also had a sexual relationship with her neighbor at the same time. Although, it's possible that this latter relationship was not entirely consensual.

Ghosts are a central part of this movie. The opening sequence contains supposed old photographs of ghosts. The main characters claim to encounter a ghost several times. Most of the film's scares come from photo and video evidence that appear to show a ghost.

The footage of Alice (uncovered by her parents) at Lake Mungo shows the girl with her friends; while the other girls are having fun, Alice has a severely panicked look about her, and she eventually isolates herself.

SPOILERS!: while alice does not kill herself, she is confronted with the reality that she will die and has resigned herself to death. it is not a suicide but reminded me of a suicidal person as she changes and becomes a sadder more isolated person before death. could be triggering, was triggering to me.

SO many flashing lights. When they're looking at the footage from Lake Mungo on the cellphones near the hour mark. They're in the darkness, and there's a lot of flashlights going past the screen, it's a very poor quality recording too.

The ending's happiness is debatable. Spoilers ahead! The family receives closure. However, they move, possibly leaving the ghost to be abandoned.
