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.
Many younger kids in the theater began to cry. One behind us was sort of whimpering.
Then the next scene...
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.
