Just enough to send chills up your spine.

Haunted Mansion–the Disney remake of its 2003 feature–is set for a theatrical release this summer, and it’s official MPA rating came down this week.

The remake–directed by Justin Simien from a screenplay by Katie Dippold–is rated PG-13 for “some thematic elements and scary action”. Look for the film in theaters July 28.

Inspired by the ever-popular Disney theme park ride, Haunted Mansion follows single mom Gabbie (Rosario Dawson) as she moves into a New Orleans mansion with her son (Chase Dillon). But, when she learns the house is haunted, she seeks the help of a priest (Owen Wilson), who “spins an exorcism into a wild adventure,” according to the synopsis.

Soon after, they turn to “a widowed scientist-turned-paranormal expert (LaKeith Stanfield), a psychic from the French Quarter (Tiffany Haddish) and a crotchety historian (Danny DeVito) for help.”

The film also boasts appearances from Jamie Lee Curtis (as Madame Leota) and Jared Leto (as The Hatbox Ghost)–as well as cameos from Winona Ryder and Dan Levy.
