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.

This is the worst movie EVER!!! Save time and money.. A little kid could have directed and made a better movie than this.

This movie is pretty good. It's story is alright, but other than that it's great. I think it's okay for kids 12 and up. Definitely not any younger. It has some cursing, and violence. It's a great preteen horror flick for those in between kid and teen. Don't hold back on your kids. Trust in them that they are mature enough.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
