I have seen this movie. I would not say this is appropriate at all they say mild sexual context. I would like every parent to know its about two little girls going missing. Its constantly referring to them being violated and possibly murdered. They kidnap a man with a mind of a child and torture him. There is aggressive foul language and a lot of it. I think it is not an appropriate movie for kids and I believe that’s why it’s rated R.
