What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this supernatural slasher about a serial killer who may have returned from the dead is full of slicing and dicing, with gallons of blood on display. There are also two instances in which adults hit teens. Language is quite strong, with many uses of "f--k" and "s--t." There are some sexual situations, including one involving teen pregnancy, but not much is shown onscreen. Most of the lead characters are 16, and the movie is being presented in 3-D (which, of course, makes everything that much more intense), so it's primed for teen consumption.
- Families can talk about the movie's violence. How did it affect you? How does its impact compare to that in other horror movies you've seen?
- Is the movie scary? What makes it a horror movie? Does it have supernatural elements, or is it more about the suspense?
- How does Bug grow and change over the course of the film? Does he learn to become a grown-up during his ordeal? Does he learn to take on responsibility?
