Parents need to know that Monster High: Electrified is another animated, direct-to-DVD movie about a high school made up of monsters of all sizes, shapes, and species. Ostensibly created to promote diversity and acceptance of differences, the good monsters are meant to reflect friendship, teamwork, and striving to achieve goals. The female "ghouls," as they are known, make up an ever-growing group of high school kids/dolls, with curvy bodies, makeup, high heels, and often skimpy clothing, each of them designed to represent the monster they are inside (vampire, werewolf, ghost, and so on). This movie pits a troublemaking zombie student against a creative, well-meaning werewolf and her friends. Action is mostly made up of electrical threats: bolts, zaps, shocks, an electrical storm, and power surges. One character appears to be dangerously electrified before she is rescued. Plus there are zombie attacks (mostly comic) and teeth-baring wolf chases. As always, Monster High films are cross-promoted with an extensive line of dolls, toys, apps, and associated products from Mattel. In this movie, a new doll, Silvi Timberwolf, is introduced, and several of the leading characters will now have "electrified" versions of their characters for sale. This is only for kids who are comfortable with real vs. imaginary violence.
