Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

What started as a web series ended up as an over-the-top monster-invasion comedy and a beyond-silly take on teen romcoms and high school hijinx. Snatchers is one of those "teen-dumps-BF-only-to-find-out-how-shallow- the-popular-crowd-is" cautionary tales, but it certainly finds a new way to tell that tale. The filmmakers didn't need a gigantic budget to create its monsters. The little fiend clamped on the head of an innocent (or not so innocent) bystander works just fine. The actors are in on the game and by playing every farcical moment with a straight face, they're part of the fun, too.

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.
