Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, some disturbing violence, brief sensuality and language
I really don’t know why people are writing comments slating this film.
It is not a ‘hardcore; horror that is likely to make you seek therapy for the rest of your life, but it is not dull or unwatchable either.
The production is good, the acting is good, and it is the kind of film you can watch when you just fancy a ‘movie night’ with friends or family.
The story is engaging enough to make it interesting.
All these pseudo-intellectual ramblings criticising the film are just that – pseudo-intellectual.
It is probably not the best film you will watch in your life but is it also very far from the worst.
