If you like to be spooked out a little bit this is kind of fun

I am a Christian, and I have to say this is a guilty pleasure. And a lot of ways and makes me feel bad for watching this. I know it's very fanciful and not to be taken seriously. But I think it could very much confuse a young spongy mind. I really don't think I'll let my teens watch this although I do have teenagers that are 17 . Actually I have stopped watching it after the first five episodes. It became overbearing in it's demonic intensity. And I don't like that very much at all. My husband got me back into it after he got past the first several episodes and got a little lighter. All that being said, it's very fun, it's written pretty well written there are some inaccuracies, and the actors are pretty good. Overall it is fun.
