The movie is a great teaching moment. If you have young ones who have fears or who are afraid of trying something new this is just the movie for you! Fair warning there are some pretty scary scenes for young viewers.
Keep your ears and eyes open for until the very end. There seems to be something on the horizon if you listen carefully!
