We watched this movie with my kids last night...its got just enough fright to make your butt pucker but not too much to be over the top. It's rated R but I think it should be PG-13. It not for younger kids but it gave mine a good spook. Whenever I recommend older movies, my kids always assume they are going to stink...but this one they liked.
We also watched "Brother Where Art Thou" the other night...a bit too much language but they enjoyed that one as well. So I'm on a winning spree right now.
