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.

This was a really good horror movie. It had the fear factor, and such a good story. If youre looking for a little bit of a scare, this is a good go-to. There isnt very much gore, but there is a decent amount of language and a smaller amount of smoking/drinking, so I feel like its definitely not for younger kids, but its okay for 11+
