Quite good at first .

Not really scary but when i first watched it, it was quite intense and some of it was disturbing. No gore or visual horror though, which is why it is rated a 12+.

Very Scary!

This movie is one of my all time favorite movies!
Parent of a 11 year old Written bylittleone522 February 13, 2010

perfect for pre-teens that enjoy a fright.

My son loves scary movies but there are very few scary movies out there that are clean. In this movie there is no language and there is no sex. Which makes it a perfect scary movie for any pre-teen but make sure your child can handle the scares because this movie offers alot of creepy scenes and some frights.

Intense at moments

This movie is very intense at parts but not flat out scary. The language is not at all but there is a minor scene of sexuality between a married couple which is just kissing followed by an image of their backs naked in bed (nothing explicit)

This movie is great! Somewhat creepy in the begining and ok in the end. Some parts made me jump but it is very intertaining. I assure you, that you will definatly not have any nightmares after watching this film!

Creepy and well-made, with a great twist

This is superb horror film. It doesn't use gruesome, grisly gore to attract attention. It doesn't even use that many startling jump scenes. It uses Hitchcock-style suspense and creepiness. It makes the viewer think "Wow, that's intense," and not "Wow, that's disgusting, but stupid." Nicole Kindman does a fantastic job as the freaked-out widow/mother, and the kids are really good too. And, if you don't like it, wait until the end, because there's a really good twist. Don't worry, no spoilers here! Parents: although this isn't a violent film, it is an immensely creepy one, and it is often scary. Bottom Line: a must-see for horror fans, unless all they want is gore. Then they can rely on Saw or something. Thanks for reading! - Movie Man

Scary movie , creepy atmosphere and agonizing , not suitable for under 12 / Film effrayant, ambiance glauque et angoissante, pas adapté pour les moins de 12 ans

ENGLISH:In this film , it's mostly the atmosphere is frightening. Still in the dark, often as a lamp lighting, in a sinister mansion ... The ghosts are also afraid, but we do not see them. It suggests . We see still an old woman , which is really ugly. You should know that this film contains no blood. It is too intense for children under 12 years. The final outcome also struck fear the young audience Note9 / 10 Excellent movie, which will make you fear from beginning to end! Excuse me for the mistakes , but I'm french ! FRANCAIS:Dans ce film, c’est surtout l’atmosphère qui est effrayante. Toujours dans le noir, souvent qu’une lampe comme éclairage, dans un manoir sinistre…Les fantômes aussi font peur, mais on ne les voit pas. On les suggère. On voit quand même une vielle femme, qui est vraiment laide. Il faut savoir que ce film ne contient pas de sang. Il est trop intense pour les enfants de moins de 12 ans. Le dénouement final peur aussi heurtée le jeune public Note9/10 Excellent film, qui vous fera peur du début à la fin !

Nothing really bad about it but my 10 year old brother wasnt scared
Teen, 14 years old Written bytheegreeat August 19, 2011


Great for pre teens who like horror movies. No very frightening images and that is the great thing about this movie. All the scariness is in the suspense. Though younger kids might not like the idea of "intruders" in your house

Good for tweens and older teenagers

This movie is fine, but it does get really freaky. I cant watch it all the way through, its pretty scary

Saw the movie myself and thought it was a suspenseful movie with a twist. I liked it, but they could have added an extra half hour to it more.

This is one of the most boring horror films I've seen. 90% of the film consists of talking about things that aren't scary. There is almost no transition between the mother being sane to mentally unstable. The "ghosts" pose essentially no threat to the main characters, and for whatever reason, the movie refuses to take advantage of the kids having to constantly live in the dark, as if its personal goal was to create a good way of being scary, and then not use it. The twist ending kind of saves it, but in reality it leaves the door open for what could have been a much better movie. If you want a good horror movie that shows little of the actual scary stuff, watch the original version of "The Haunting." It's a much scarier movie and does what "The Others" was trying to do.

great movie

it is a great horror movie with no gore or disturbing images but has a violent theme *SPOILER ALERT* the mom killed her children after going mad then herself and now is ghost with children and the "ghosts" were actually living people *SPOILER OVER* might scare some young children all the scares in the movie just were like pop out scary also the kids had a disease that made them unable to go in the sunlight that set a creppy mood in the movie

Not scary but great

This was my first horror movie. Not really scary at all. A few creepy scenes here and there. Great plot and storyline. Some scenes may be intense for veiwers under 10. Awesome ending.

Pretty good

It is a psychological thriller. Some creepy parts and has a really freaky and thrilling ending but overall great movie.
