I let my 12 year old watch this and she LOVES it!!! We let her start the first one right when she turned 10 (shes an october baby) I myself am not a huge fan of horror movies but I watched. Its made me jump but if your kid likes horror movies there isn't much sex or drugs/smoking etc. And I think it's appropriate if that's what they are into! I would let my 8 year old watch this but not my babies!! (My 8 y/o likes anime not horor LOL)
