“HALLOWEEN”

>> Rated: R for horror violence and bloody images, language, brief drug use and nudity

>> The kid attractor factor: Teens will be drawn to the horror slasher genre.

>> Good lessons/bad lessons: Face your fears or let them haunt you for the rest of your life.

>> Violence: Many brutal and gory deaths at the hands of Michael Myers: stranglings, slashings, shootings, burnings, etc.

>> Language: Some swearing throughout

>> Sexuality: Some teens kissing, making out, references to sex, etc.

>> Drugs: Teens drinking and smoking marijuana

>> Parents advisory: This is too violent for kids but plenty of spooky slasher horror fun for teens.
