Great movie

This was an amazing movie! Watched this with my 13 year old daughter and we both enjoyed it a lot. Although there is a fair bit of blood it’s nothing teens nowadays can’t handle. This movie is appropriate for 13 year olds (and maybe 12) if gore is nothing they haven’t seen before. As a scream fan I was definitely not disappointed with this sequel and the reveal was AMAZING.
