This is what I would call a some what horror movie. There is a ton of violence and many scary images. There is a couple sexual images, (when the teenage daughter is in the bathtub). There is a tiny bit of swearing during the movie. There is some blood and disturbing images. Great story scary moments though.
i read all the V.C Andrews books, theyr all fine, but, some kinda go against women- (surprisingly, most are fine)... if kids are gonna watch the movie, they should read the books first- I suggest the orphan series.
