Pretty scary movie for kids

I am surprised that this was rated as being for 10-year old kids. This movie is pretty intense and dark. It has some pretty scary scenes in it, and I would consider this movie to be a horror movie. I watched it with my twin 10-year old kids, and my daughter had to go upstairs because it got too scary.
