I saw this movie last night with my 7th grade daughter. I appreciated your review of the movie. It made me wary of taking my younger son, who it might have scared. It wasn’t extremely bloody though, and I thought it would be after reading your review. But when I saw the Haunted house scene, I realized that’s what you were referring to. It would have been too much for my younger children. So thanks for your review. Also, the movie is based on a book, and I am now thinking I may have to check it out. I liked this movie. The grade it received on your site is appropriate.
