Bloody horror movie, but still well crafted.

It’s a great movie, but also terrifying. It’s about Mr. and Ms. Mullins who welcome (several orphans) a nun and several girls at their house. A young girl called Janice, opens a closet (that she’s told not to) and finds this doll. Only, she doesn’t know how threatening this doll can be. The movie is not too violent but it’s bloody. So if your teenager feels uncomfortable watching blood, this is not a good choice. Also expect a demon, which is shown in several scenes, but these scenes are brief.
