Old-fashioned horror fantasy isn't too scary for tweens.

Drawn Out & Has Nothing To Do With Cats!!

Oh this movie was full of minor suspense and you kept waiting for something to actually happen. The main character, a child, seems to be picked on by other kids AND her parents for having an imagination! Almost like she is mentally ill! The whole reason I watched this movie is cause I thought it was about cats! There is one brief showing of a random cat at the beginning of the movie and that’s it! NO CAT PEOPLE!!! Extremely deceptive title! And the movie does have “ghosts” if that’s not something your child wants to see!

Very good movie

Part psycho-drama, part fantasy this movie is definitely thought provoking. It should be noted that while the content is appropriate for all ages, it probably won't be appreciated by younger viewers.
