I have no idea whether it is because I watched this movie on television and it was edited, but there is know visual violence in this movie! I mean, there is the odd chop off somebody's fingers and there is a bit of blood. But, when you think an intense part is coming up, you see an ax raise and then come down quick and then the scene ends and that is it! Come on! But otherwise, I love this movie! I love especially the plot. This movie is about a woman who comes across a hotel and plans to write a book about it. One day at the hotel, she went in the elevator and accidentally stumbled across a thirteenth floor on the hotel! There she discovers a psycho killer on the lose up there, but hotel staff try to convince that the woman's story is not true because there is no thirteenth floor on the hotel! For those who'd like to know what I'd rate this movie in MPAA ratings, I'd rate it a PG because there is bearly a gorey, violent, visual part through-out, which is good in a way for a children's first horror movie. Excellent choice for a first horror flick! Plus, for a second I'd recommend Poltergeist III (1988). Excellent movie!
