It's good

It has alot of violence and sex but that's nothing you wouldn't see in the streets. To me 13+ is ok

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight is both a by-the-book horror fest and an imaginative romp that follows the horror template step-by-bloody step into irretrievable carnage. It mocks but also reveres the gory slasher genre it mimics. Our guide is the clever Julek, who recognizes all the elements of classic horror movies as they present themselves to him and his frightened friends.

Teens are likely to be interested given the young cast. As horror movies go, it's pretty entertaining, but be aware that it's also very bloody and includes strong language, sex, nudity, and drug use. The movie makes it clear that a sequel may be in the works, as well.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
