Let me start off this review with saying yes, there is indeed violence. However, these parents are taking it too far! They make it sound much worse than it is, and in comparison to other Japanese horror films, it is actually tame. If your child has seen features like The Ring, this film is most likely okay for their eyes. If they are not as much as used to horror as you may be, try to hold off on this one. This film does include its fair share of blood, but it IS an R-Rated movie. Scares are active, as the jumps are what keep the movie going. It doesn’t have a great story, but it would be a great film to just get scared watching. I think this film should definitely be left for mature teens, but only because of blood and jump-scares that would scare tweens.
