Did your reviewer actually watch any of the episodes?!

This show contains profanity including use of the word s*** continuously, at least one use of the word f*** in the first several episodes, as well as other vulgar terms. The tone is very dark and disturbing and there are themes revolving around the occult, satanic worship, and experimentation murder. Other themes include parental exploitation of children for monetary gain and sadistic treatment of children by psychotic parents. And yes there is blood and gore! There is actually a scene with blood dripping from the ceiling and down the walls, another with the sound of sawing through a human body, another with a stabbing. I would not recommend this TV series to any child.

Too much violence

I think the common sense rating of 10+ is a bit young. My 13 year old scares easily and this is borderline for her. My 14 year old loves scary stuff so she’s good with it. I wouldn’t have let either of them watch this at 10 due to it being a bit scary for that age. The language is also worse than noted above. Multiple uses of “sh-t” and some mild sexual references. It is very entertaining so far (4 episodes in).
