What is the age rating for the invite (2022)? Parent Guide
We love good horror movies here! It’s something we’ve been obsessed with since we were teenagers.
Therefore, we understand that your family may also like to scare from time to time.
But not all horror films are made the same, and some are completely unsuitable for teenagers or children. Is the invitation suitable for children?
This parenting guide will help you decide if your family can handle blood, violence, language, sex, romance and nudity. We will also give The Invitation an age rating and age-appropriate recommendations.
You are sure to hear a lot of expletives in this, including the F-bomb. But it only happens once, and it’s really good, so we’re not even mad about it.
In The Invitation, your teens will hear:
- holy shit
- @ss, @sshole, @sshat
- boobs, tats, butts
- Oh my God
- [email protected]
- bull shit
Age rating for invitation: is it safe for kids when it comes to sex, romance and nudity?
The premise is a twist on the old tale of Dracula.
In “The Invitation”, a young woman has an affair with a stunning rich man whom she jokingly agrees to marry. Unfortunately, this was not a joke, and after their stormy romance, it becomes very scary.
The couple have sex, but the scale of the action seen on screen is the removal of shirts and passionate kisses, and a morning discussion while they are still in bed together.
There is also a fully nude back side of the woman.
While the sexual tension is ripe, it doesn’t feature too much nudity or screen action for a mature teen.
Invitation (2022) Suitable for kids: adult themes
One big thread throughout the film is the loss of parents.
Evie is a recently orphaned girl who is still grieving over her loss. This may be a trigger for some families.
Racial and socioeconomic differences are also discussed throughout the film.
Violence and cruelty: is the invitation too scary for children under 13?
Let’s face it: we thought it was an R-rated movie.
And all this time we also thought – hey, this is not so bad for teenagers.
The good news is that it’s not too violent or too bloody, all things considered.
The “Invitation” uses screamers and typical vampire death scenes (death by fire or stake). There is death and some blood.
Drinking blood happens too (hey, it’s a vampire movie! Of course it happens!), but overall the movie doesn’t go overboard with blood.
It’s scary enough to make you want to look away from the screen when you know something is happening, but not scary enough to scare you when it actually happens.
The Invitation (2022) Age Rating: What Age Can Really Watch This?
The Invitation (2022) is rated PG-13 for horror, violent content, language, mild sexual content, and partial nudity.
Can children under 13 watch the Invitation?
Is the invitation suitable for children under 13?
As always: you know your children best.
As long as your family doesn’t mind a little swearing and a bit of nudity, “The Invitation” might be fine for tweens and teens.
It’s just scary enough to tickle your nerves, but not too scary to cause long-term fears or nightmares. A teenager or teen who loves horror or vampires will be properly entertained by this movie.
However, it could be a movie you screen before your 12 year old’s pajama party.
