A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Curon is an Italian supernatural series (dubbed into English) about a set of teenage twins and their mother in a gothic Italian town. The death and disappearance of family members is a major theme, and rifles, shootings, and blood are visible. There's lots of cursing, and some strong sexual innuendo (but no nudity). Both adults and teens drink alcohol (wine, hard liquor, etc.) and smoke cigarettes. Teen bullying is also visible.
What's the story?
CURON is dramatic series about a woman with a terrifying legacy who returns to a town full of mystery. Anna Rainas’ (Valeria Bilello) father Thomas (Luca Lionello) forced her to leave their small town of Curon after the strange death of her mother. Seventeen years later, Ana’s hoping to restart her life, and returns to her childhood home with her teenagers, Mauro (Federico Russo) and his rebellious twin sister Daria (Margherita Morchio). As her kids try to adjust to a new life in the small town, they learn about some of its local legends, including one about the partially-submerged bell tower that sits in the middle of the lake. But when Anna mysteriously disappears, the twins learn the truth about why their mother returned home, and realize that at least one tale they've been told is frighteningly real.
Is it any good?
This dark series tells a chilling but fictional story about a strange death that takes place in the real-life town of Curon, Italy. The sunken bell tower and the surrounding areas create a sense of foreboding despite their beauty, making them integral to the story world. But unevenly woven throughout the tale are individual stories about family relationships, old village rivalries, and youth conflict, some of which fail to clearly come together in the end. Meanwhile, Mauro and Daria drive much of the series, but their exploits often feel disconnected from the ominous events taking place. As a result, Curon is a decent pick for anyone looking for a solid supernatural teen drama, but will leave you feeling disappointed if you want something more spine-chilling.
