This was a great movie, the last 30 minutes was super scary, even more scary than The Conjuring. It was creepy.

Scary but Funny

The movie was scary but mostly funny at times. There is a little bit of gore but not much. A nanas butt is shown but you can’t see it well. It’s rated PG-13 fir a reason and I think kids should be able to watch it as long as there 10 plus and can handle horror movies.
