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.

Not scary, but some talk of murder and death.

I teach horror films for a living, and I thought this would be a good starter film for my almost six-year old son. He gets scared very easily, but he was not scared of this film. It provides a good opportunity to talk about the importance of kindness and how "you shouldn't treat people like they treat Frankenstein's creature, even if they have a body that looks different than yours", according to my son. There is some discussion of murder and corpses, of course, and a little bit of violence.
