Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

SLOW and very overrated

I was very excited to watch this because of the ratings rotten tomatoes gave it. Its q very slow movie, I forced myself to watch it hopping it would get better but it never does, the best part was the last 15 mins. The whole movie is just confusing and never telling you what's happening. I wouldn't suggest it unless u need to fall asleep!

Don't really recommend honestly.

This movie is R and I honestly think PG13 would much better suit it. I'm 14 and this movie did not scare me or gross me out. The worst it gets is people peeling skin off, it sounds worse than it is, trust me. Lastly, the old woman is shown naked from behind, but I think any 10 yr old can handle that. Thats just my thoughts on this new movie, It wasn't a favorite, but maybe you'll like it! :)
