Disgusted that this is rated for kids to watch

This rating is ridiculous! This is a slasher movie and it is rated for kids to watch?? I have my kids Netflix profile set on "kids" appropriate, and this pops up, so my 9yr old has watched it alone, and is now traumatised. I am fuming!!!!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
