Not for kids!!!

I watched the first 3 insidious movies with my 10 year old. There are a few parts (like Elise getting strangled) that were a little mature but overall they were fine and she loved them. We had to turn off the last key about 40 minutes in because of the extremely graphic depictions of child abuse and kidnapping. A father beats his daughter and locks her in a dark basement. A man has a girl chained up in his basement then shoots himself in the head. This movie should have an R rating.
