The Uninvited

My ten year old begged me to watch this movie and I stupidly said yes. After the movie we as a family thought it had a lot of flaws. It was also pretty scarry for a ten yearbold so I wouldn't recommend this movie to any one under the age of 14. Also Don't BE FOOLED BY THE TRAILER!!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex

If anything it's a twist you won't get in many other movies.

Truly, it is a dark film, but that doesn't mean it should be abandoned. It starts with a PG-13 setting of a child who lost their family in a harsh way, and as the story progresses you unvail a more mature tone of something deeper (I am doing my best to say this without spoilers). Honestly please watch it! It is a story you won't understand until the twist :)
