M. Night Shyamalan is back with Old, a supernatural horror inspired by the graphic novel, Sand castle. What is the grade for the Old movie? Is it suitable for young audiences? Here is what we know.
Old is in theaters on Friday July 23 and fans of the horror genre and Shyamalan couldn’t be more excited! But, as any Shyamalan fan (or not) knows, his movies can be hit and miss for the most part.
The trailer for the Old The film has us all excited, but we proceed with caution. It doesn’t help that the film is only available in theaters. We’ve all gotten used to enjoying movies at home and have become picky about the movies we go out to see in theaters.
Still, as a fan of horror and mystery (as well as a fan of Shyamalan), I am delighted to see this film on the big screen.
What is the old movie about?
Old follows a family on a tropical vacation who soon discovers that they are aging rapidly. What is causing this and can the family get out on time?
The cast of the film includes Gael Garcia Bernal, Vicky Krieps, Rufus Sewell, Ken Leung and others.
Classification of old films
Now every child is different. Some are even in horror at a young age. But does Old present images or sequences that are too violent or too strong for them to handle? Although it depends on each parent, as only you know your child best, here is the rating given by the studio Old.
According to studio, the film is rated PG-13 for disturbing images, very brief language, partial nudity, strong violence, and suggestive content.
âPartial nudityâ and âsuggestive contentâ are generally what parents look for, along with violence. But instead of an R rating, the film has a PG-13 rating, so it doesn’t have to be as “bad” as it looks.
At first glance, the average child over the age of 13 may be able to handle the movie. Again, you know your child best! If you have a young teenager who scares easily or just isn’t used to the genre, I wouldn’t watch the movie with him. You may want to wait for more reviews to be posted to make your decision.
Will you be watching the movie in theaters this weekend with a friend or family?
