Some of the quick shots throughout the film are genuinely scary, and there is a fair amount of gore in it, but nothing it over the top. It's also worth noting this is based on a true story, though how much of the real story is true is of question. Unfortunately the end of the movie is somewhat anti-dramatic and disappointing, and the acting of most of the supporting characters--in particular Jesse James as Billy--is dreadfully bad. Honestly, you will find yourself hoping George just offs the little brat. Still, this ranks as one of my favorite remakes, and is a film I recommend.
