The parents' guide to what's in this movie.

Community Reviews

age 16+
This film is an extremely well-done found footage horror film. However, parents need to keep in mind that the film pulls no punches when it comes to showcasing gore and body horror, as well as disturbing religious motifs. The film also actively involves the audience in "sharing" the fictitious curse portrayed in the story, which may be extremely frightening for children who fear real-life repercussions. However, the film also successfully addresses issues like intergenerational trauma, the concept of motherhood as well as unconditional familial love, which can be wonderful points of discussion between you and an older child. However, maturity is required from both parties, and at any age, parental guidance would be appropriate.
