I'm not sure how good of a review I can give, since we walked out of the movie, so what I will post is our reasons for leaving. I have been looking forward to this movie since I first heard about it. My girls have been looking forward to this movie since they first heard of it. So last night we took our girls to this movie. It was packed with families with kids of all ages. The first 20 minutes of this movie are so intense. Waaaaay too intense for kids my girls ages (7 and 8 years old) and younger in my opinion. The opening scene with the little girl riding her bike and the old man coming out of his door ... his eyes all evil and dark, really freaked my girls out. He yelled so fiercly and just frightened many kids in the theater. Many younger kids in the theater began to cry. One behind us was sort of whimpering. Then the next scene... the old man chases the neighbor boy and grabs him and yells at him and then as he is clutching him, the old man begans to have a heart attack. His eyes were piercing and scary. It was definitely an intense death scene. My youngest daughter couldn't handle it. Then... the house gets pissed that the old man is dead and he ends up going after the young boy. The chimney smokes and a dark shadow comes from across the street and into the boys room as he is lying in bed. A hand forms and reaches out to grab the boy. The child behind kept asking his mother if she would take him home. She just told him to sit still and be quiet. That pissed me off. th ekid obviously was uncomfortable. This had my girls curled up and scared. The sound effects were really scary in that scene. The whole feel of the movie was just not kid appropriate. I finally took my girls and left and got a refund. I was so disappointed because the previews we have watched show this to be a funny movie, not scary and intense like it really was. I hate this about previews lately. This happened with another movie recently as well. The previews make it seem kid friendly, but in reality it was so not. Anyway, I'm sure the movie was good, but I went into kid protection mode so I couldn't really say.
