What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this cliched thriller starring Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester centers on a young woman who’s dangerously obsessed with another, to the point of violence. The movie has many creepy scenes -- and violent ones, including some with gore and blood, beatings, stabbings, and more. And a general air of malevolence hangs over the whole movie. There's also some swearing (including "s--t” and “a--hole”), sexuality (including two women kissing), and underage partying.
- Families can talk about what makes a movie a thriller rather than a horror film. What's scarier -- things that are shown, or things that are suggested?
- What's the impact of this movie's violence?
- What messages is the movie sending about its two main characters? Does it paint young women in a positive or negative light overall?
