The film can be lauded for bringing something a bit different to the local cinema but as an adult, I felt the film didn't work on multiple levels such as when some children's films have something additional to also appeal to adults. Some of its messages were given so unsubtly that it felt too underestimating even for kids who aren't super young. But in terms of children like that, I heard there were some of them who found the film a bit spooky. So overall the film isn't horrible but there are better things out there and not because of visuals or budget constrains but due to writing.
