The Curse of Bridge Hollow is heading to Netflix just in time for the Halloween season, and it's a spooky movie that the family can enjoy!

Directed by Kick-Ass 2's Jeff Wadlow, the new comedy follows a father and daughter duo as they fight to save their town from an evil curse that brings Halloween decorations to life - with disastrous results.

In the movie, Marlon Wayans is a science teacher who doesn’t believe in the supernatural, but all that is about to change after he and his family move from Brooklyn to Bridge Hollow and a curse is accidentally unleashed.

So if you're looking for something scary but not too scary this Halloween, The Curse of Bridge Hollow could be the perfect entertainment alongside your trick-or-treat candy.

Here's what you need to know about the Netflix movie...

The Curse of Bridge Hollow release date

The movie is released on Netflix on Friday, October 14. So just in time for any Halloween celebrations you might've planned, or a cozy autumn night in!

What is the age rating for The Curse of Bridge Hollow?

The film has been given a TV-14 rating, meaning it's suitable for most audiences however some material might not be appropriate for children under 14 years of age due to the fact there are some horror themes going on.

What is The Curse of Bridge Hollow about?

The official plot for the new movie is: "A father and his teenage daughter Sydney are forced to team up and save their town after an ancient and mischievous spirit causes Halloween decorations to come to life and wreak havoc."

In the movie, Sydney learns that their house has a haunted history, and she finds an old lantern that accidentally unleashes the curse that soon sweeps across the whole town of Bridge Hollow. Oops...

So we should expect lots of laughs and misadventure as two Brooklyn natives try to save this small town from a curse on the most terrifying night of the year: Halloween. They definitely didn't sign up to protect the locals, but they have no choice!
