The Disappointments Room was predicted to have a good opening, and it got famous among the audiences. The film was given an R-rating due to violence, blood images, sexuality, and language.

There is a dozen of films in Hollywood with the same theme of shifting to a haunted house and the females and children in the family experiencing the horror. So it is nothing new for Hollywood. An average film for this weekend, so if you are bored with usual action and drama to can watch this one for a change.
