What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that, unlike the gruesome slasher and monster movies that dominate the field, this one seeks to scare viewers by tapping into our religious upbringing, both personal and cultural. With a relatively realistic tone, the movie argues that the Devil is a real force in the world. Scientific reasoning and humanism are seen as being in opposition, at least in certain circumstances, to religious faith.
- Families can talk about what makes this movie scary. Why are people drawn to scary/gory movies in the first place? What is it about people that makes us like to be scared?
