Way too Gory for ANY human being

first of all I just want to get this out in the first 10 minutes of the movie someone already got decapitated and you see his head getting ripped off and you see the organs on him getting ripped, then you see someone get stabbed a million times and to me seeing that as an adult that is enough. I feel like whoever says it is for kids 2 and up they are obsurd pieces of crap. Just Don't Bother to watch. They even got the Mask for Michael Myers wrong...
