Love this movie!

I have watched all the Insidious movies, and just like this one it has an amazing story! This movie has some scary scenes including a girl with no eyes or mouth crawling after the main character. There is also some jump scares that could scare younger viewers. There is some swearing including one use of the f-word. Overall amazing movie highly recommend to teens possibly tweens!

This title has:

Too much swearing
