I previewed this movie yesterday, prior to bringing my 10 year old and his friends..
I kept jumping out of my skin. Pretty intensely scary movie with very realistically scary monsters and scenes. Skipped a lot of the story in favor of scary graphics. Bummer.
If THIS is PG, I would hate to see PG-13! I don't recommend it if a kid of 10 is at all nervous or jumpy.
NOT bringing my 10 year old and his friends. Frankly, not sure it would even be ok until around 12.

My 10 year old son and his friends love this book. Does the plot follow the book and if they know the plot is it less likely to be scary?

Afraid I can't really answer this as I haven't read the book, but I haven't heard any complaints that the film strays too far from the source material.
