i think this is a great movie for my little girl at the age of ten and she loves the ride she did her report on this at school and it told her some great things about the story and the movie i think if your child is over 8 or 9 and even 10 they will be fine

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (6 ):

Based on Disney-MGM Studios' Tower of Terror attraction at the Walt Disney World Resort, TOWER OF TERROR is clearly a made-for-TV movie -- and sticks to a very predictable horror movie formula. Even young kids will probably figure out who the real villain is, but just the same, they may enjoy watching the truth come to light. Most of the acting is flat, with the main exception of Dunst, who does a commendable job with her cheesy lines.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
