A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

It contains lots of themes, ranging from death, murder, and supernatural occurrences to family dysfunction, divorce, bullying, teen angst, and old village rivalries.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The twins bicker, but have a very close relationship. Daria is protective of her shy brother. Anna appears to favor Mauro over Daria.  

Violence

Rifles are shot, blood is visible, and people die and vanish. Arguments are frequent, and on occasion people hurl insults at each other. Teen bullying is also visible. 

Sex

Sexual content includes kissing and a suggestion of a simulated sex act, but no nudity. 

Language

There’s lots of strong cursing in each episode, including "s--t" and "f--k."  

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Teens and adults smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol (wine, hard liquor, etc.) References are made to weed. A party game requires people to drink until they pass out.

Its more of a teen drama.

I think its more of a teen drama than a horror show. It was also kinda boring; But it had a decent storyline.

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.  

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the way Curon represents the real town of Curon, Italy in the series. Is it as dark and mysterious as it appears here? How do you think the residents feel about having their community represented in this way?

  • Do you prefer to watch shows that are subtitled or dubbed? Why does one or the other work for you?
