What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie is not your average run-of-the-mill Dracula flick but a highly sexualized and violent version. It's for mature audiences only because the movie is filled with multiple, graphic images of violent, blood-letting sex. Parents should be very careful in allowing even remotely squeamish teens to watch this film.
- Families can talk about issues regarding religion and the supernatural as both subjects arise throughout the film in unsettling ways. It may be useful to explore their teen's feelings here, even if it is just to make sure they are not too spooked. This may also be a good time to discuss style in horror films. Why does this film feel the same as or different from scary movies set in more commonplace contemporary settings?
