Ghostly scary

My 12 yr old son and I watched and thought it was scary. I allowed it because the movie was rated PG-13 (instead of R like most horror movies). This movie shows people burning, leper’s disfigurements and scary ghosts. Yet this was not a bloody or gory movie; just ghost story scary. Plus I had to fast forward the shower scene between Nick and Elizabeth. So I would say 14 years old would be more appropriate than 12 years old.
not rated for age

Chomped my nails

this movie goes to show what can happen when people do not honor their word. Very vengful, some violence that is in keeping with the movie. (explaination purposes)
