Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Good Scary Movie 11+

Watched this with my 11yo girl, she liked it and wasn't scared, I had seen it before so I knew what was coming. There are lots of demons, possessions, violence, death and depictions of hell, biggest concern for me was the two suicide scenes (Isabelle at the beginning and John at the end). Overall it's a good movie and if your child likes 'scary' movies and they're mature enough for you to explain heaven, hell, death, religion and suicide then you're all good...

Not too scary

Watched with my 14 and 12 year old. It has a few jump scares and demons. Nothings sexual. A lot of swearing and smoking. It’s not scary and fine for 12+

    The Cell

    A movie with no plot, no logic, no meaning.
