What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Love and Monsters is a dystopian fantasy adventure with a romantic comedy twist. Dylan O'Brien stars as Joel Dawson, survivor of a "monster apocalypse" who lives in an underground colony with other survivors. When a monster invades their bunker and kills a member, Joel decides to hit the road in search of his high school sweetheart, Aimee (Jessica Henwick). Along the way, he meets Clyde Dutton (Michael Rooker), an expert hunter who helps him survive and track down his love. This fantastical romantic comedy adventure likely has peril, along with action and violence, strong language, and some sexually suggestive material.
