Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Stan Against Evil is a show that combines comedy and horror in a way that older teens will probably best understand and enjoy -- a former small-town sheriff tries to keep his city safe from demon invaders. It features lots of bloody gore, most of which is offered in a humorous context. There's also lots of cursing and some sexist references.
Is It Any Good?
This fun show combines humor and horror to create a series designed to be more quirky than frightening. While it feels similar to the popular series Ash vs. Evil Dead, it is milder, thanks to the bloody-but-silly scenes created by low-budget special effects.
Stan Against Evil isn't particularly original, but there's enough well-delivered inappropriate one-liners (thanks to McGinley's solid performance) that keep it moving. It's got some campy elements, too, which add to the entertainment. If you're looking for some chuckles and aren't turned off by over-the-top fantasy gore, you'll find some here.
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.
