Disney plus says it’s age 0+. It’s not.

It’s ok. But my six year old started watching because Disney plus says 0+. Definitely 12+

Really good movie

I really liked this movie and watched it for the first time when I was 12. The movie begins with Amber Pollock, the it girl, being so stuck with the thought of being prom queen, so when she attends the prom (and wins the crown), she takes a huge risk and touches the crown, which is electrical so she ends up dead. This isn't scary because she just touches it and the falls to the floor. I don't have anything bad to say about this. It's kind of stereotypical but it's a movie. It's really fun and entertaining, good cast and acting (especially Cassie Scerbo, who plays Amber). See it.
