Starry Eyes is the title a horror movie too!

Starry Eyes is also a very dark horror movie about possession and the Hollywood elite. Be VERY sure about which Starry Eyes you let your kids watch. Although there is minimal sexual content and I believe it was implied, there definitely is some. There is very disturbing imagery including demonic possession and I'd be far more concerned with the fear factor than any other aspect .

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (5):

The diverse characters, swoon-worthy love story, and vivid nature setting make this well-written romantic dramedy a must-read for teens. Zorie and Lennon's undeniable chemistry and their flirtatious banter will certainly make readers smile. The artwork throughout Starry Eyes is a charming addition, especially Lennon's maps, which not only help readers visualize their journey through the woods but also chart the milestones of their relationship. Readers will root for Zorie and Lennon as they begin to understand the power of second chances and how important communication is to a healthy relationship.
