Definitely not PG

I watched this with my 7 and 9 year old daughters and they were scared of all the skeletons. This movie should not be PG, it should be PG13. There were talks of suicide, they showed a man hanging by a rope who hung himself, very scary skeletons who come to life, a “devils curse”, and the word “ass” was said twice. This is not appropriate for younger children at all, I’m disappointed in Disney.

Although swearing is rare, a swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated shows up in a 10-year-old's bedroom and there is alcohol use. A suicide by hanging; repeated poisonings; swordplay and a man going through the second-floor window all "add up" on the list of possible parental concerns.

Loved the singing statues!

This movie has several chase scenes involving danger, which may terrify younger viewers; these, and the crypt scenes, may be too much. The mother in the film is informed that she killed herself with poison in a past life; additionally, a man is shown hanging from a noose. A ghost is dragged into the fiery depths of Hell, while other spirits descend into the heavens. Eddie Murphy's character refers to a ghost having sex with his wife (he uses the phrase "getting jiggy with my wife"). Swear words include "hell;" "ass;" "Christ;" "damn;" and "crap."

Had sports illustrated magazine with half naked swimsuit girl on the cover, plus naked girl on a tarot card, not a family movie at all

The Haunted Mansion Movie Review By Logan Strohl

Not the best disney movie based on a disney attraction but still good though. Some funny moments though. Eddie Murphy does a pretty good job not his best though not his worst either. Jungle Cruise is better than this though for sure.

WDW and WDL fans will rate this higher than non WDW and WDL fans.

It is really good for people that have ridden on the ride lots of times like me and my family. We know the history of the ride. Five year olds would get really confused with it. I rode this ride at age 3 and 5 and 9. There is a lot of flashing lights. I am 9. It's fun.

Too scary for younger kids

There were lots of high-tension chase scenes, realistic looking ghouls and other things that were a bit too scary for my 7yo. Definitely a parenting fail to choose this film. (We’re suckers for Eddie Murphy! Who didn’t love daddy day care?)

In the beginning of the movie there is a Tarot card with a penis on it. The son also has a magazine with a nude women on it.

Dislike References to Suicide

Scary images - depends on the kid. My son watches that TV show that shows how make up artists dress actors up, so he wasn't phased. There were creepy skeletons on par with the Pirates of the Caribbean ghosts. Also, I agree language wasn't appropriate for younger ones. My main issue with the plot was that the main ghosts (supposedly) commit suicide. We see brief scenes in the opening credits - it's suggested that the woman poisoned herself; my son thought someone else killed her. The man hangs himself, although it's a weird angle of him that looks more like he's levitating so my son didn't question it. So moving on, hoping we can ignore that part...the one ghost tells the wife the woman "took her own life", so my son is asking what that means...I wasn't too pleased.
