Parental guidance however ok for kids who love horror

I took my 9 year old to see this he is very mature for his age and loves scary movies , I’m an over protective mom and it’s hard to find horror movies he can enjoy with out adult sex scenes. This was great more funny than scary and zero nudity or sexual content a good movie for family’s that love scary movies I was very worried before letting him see it and honestly wasn’t bad for kiddos that have seen other horror movies
