HKFanatic's rating of the film The Moth Diaries

One of those rare films that carries an "R" rating while its dialogue and subject matter make it clear the story is aimed squarely at young teenage girls. Truthfully, the film deals with potent themes of jealousy and friendship that are relevant no matter what age you are. Hell: take away the vampire element, add a soundtrack by Goblin, and "Moth Diaries" could easily fit into Dario Argento's Eighties oeuvre.
