DOES THE FILM SUFFER FOR ITS' RATING?
PG-13 horror movies don't always have the best reputation or quality. There are exceptions to the rule though with films like A Quiet Place or The Ring. Can a film really suffer or be choked merely because of its' demographic? Can it suffer because of its' rating? Do you think that Slender Man could of been of better quality had he gotten the "R" rating? Sound off in the comment section
Believe it or not, Slender Man has some supernatural or spiritual applications to it. While we've said it many times in the past, we are secular show but the people running the show are Christians.
