Too scary for 11 year old

I don't think this movie is for most 11-12 years old. It has a lot of tense, scary moments with scary music tracks. Way too much suggestion and details on paranormal activity. It even made me jump a couple times. I'm thinking our son will have nightmares tonight, he watched most of it peeking thru his hands. I made him watch it to the end, because I thought it would be a light-hearted ending (it's SUPPOSE to be a family movie, right?), however that's not really how it went so I'm sorry I didn't just turn it off. There is some language that I wouldn't want him to hearing either. I think it would be a great movie for 14 yrs and up.
