Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Very good sequel!

This is better than the first one in my opinion. There are only 2 sex scenes in the whole movie which you can fast forward. There are many gory scenes as well. If you fast forward the sex scenes and some of the gory scenes, I would say 14+ or 13+.

Fear Street Two Review

Great movie. I rated this a 17+ because there is LOTS of gore scenes like multiple people getting slashed with an axe, girl gets stabbed multiple times and there’s two sex scenes so I wouldn’t watch this with kids.
