Main Task: BBFC

Looking at the BBFC ( British Board of Film Classification) helped us to choose are age classification of 15 for are film, this is because are target audience is 15 and over because it is a teen horror, this is because it will include drugs alcohol and swearing, it will also show violence but not alot therefore it is an under 18 film. 

Universal: All ages admitted, there is nothing unsuitable for children over 4.

Parental Guidance:All ages admitted, but certain scenes may be unsuitable for 
children under 8. May contain mild language and sex/drugs
references. May contain moderate violence if justified by 
context (e.g. fantasy).

12A: Cinema only. Introduced in 2002.Films under this category are
considered to be unsuitable for very young people. Those aged 
under 12 years are only admitted if accompanied by an adult, 
aged at least 18 years, at all times during the motion picture.
However, it is generally not recommended that 
children under 12 years should watch the film. Films under this 
category can contain mature themes, discrimination, soft drugs,
moderate swear words, infrequent strong language and 
moderate violence/sex references.

12:home media only since 2002. 12A-rated films are usually 
given a 12 certificate for the VHS/DVD version unless 
extra material has been added that requires a higher rating.
Nobody younger than 12 can rent or buy a 12-rated VHS, 
DVD, Blu-ray Disc, UMD or game. Films in his category 
may include infrequent drugs, infrequent use of strong
language, brief nudity, discreet sexual activity, 
and moderate violence. 

15: Only those over 15 years are admitted.Nobody younger 
than 15 can rent or buy a 15-rated VHS, DVD, 
Blu-ray Disc, UMD or game,or watch a film in the cinema 
with this rating. Films under this category can contain 
adult themes, hard drugs, strong language and one use of 
very strong language, moderate-strong violence/sex references, 
and undetailed sex activity.

18:Only adults are admitted.Nobody younger than 18 can rent or
 buy an 18-rated VHS, DVD, Blu-ray Disc, UMD or game, or 
watch a film in the cinema with this rating. Films under this 
category do not have limitation on the bad language that is used. 
Hard drugs are generally allowed, and strong violence/
sex references along with strong sexual activity is also allowed. 
Scenes of strong real sex may be permitted if justified by 
the context.
