Creepy but cool!

Hush is an amazing movie, but is pretty violent. Some of the violence includes: A girl getting stabbed to death, a girl getting shot in the leg with an arrow, and a guy getting a knife to the neck. It also has some VERY intense scenes. The main character a female author is deaf so she can’t hear everything that’s going on around her, and there is some cussing with the killer calling one of his victims a f- - - - - - g c- -t. Overall great movie for 15 y/os and up. Not suitable for younger children.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
