Beware Vlad Dracu!

We have been watching the Chronicles with our kids since last year (Vol 1 & 2) and find them very interesting & good conversation starters on many subjects. We talked about the mostly war-related violence along the way, but last night we started watching the Dracula-related episode, and I wish there had been a warning here. Scenes of impaled secret agents, an accomplice of Indy’s seemingly possesed and blood dripping from the ceiling, I wish my 11- and 12-yr olds had not seen this. I had watched some episodes on TV a while ago, but not this one. As we progress through Vol 3, I will watch ahead of time! It is still a valuable series and although my kids probably don’t understand much of the battle strategies and treaties mentioned, they will come away with enough information to look it up when they’re older.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
age 5+

Good alternative to the films for younger viewers.
