The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this is a violent, mean-spirited site aimed right at your tweens and teens (as ads for iPods amply prove). It masquerades as cute, but characters are routinely gutted, blood spurts everywhere, rats gnaw at bodies. Parents, don't be fooled by the fact that the DVDs are sold at tween stores like Hot Topic. There is also no warning on this site. Ask your kids if they have seen the site. Then examine what they think is so funny about this violence.

What's it about?
Is it any good?
This site, in spite of its cheery name, is not for kids. Frankly, it's not for anyone. It is nightmare-inducing stuff. Characters lose their guts, brains, and eyeballs. It's as intentionally gross as it can be. There is nothing redeeming about this site. It is overwhelmingly commercial as well.
