Family guide to new movie releases

Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service on

Published in Parenting News


Rated R for strong bloody violence, language throughout and some sexual references.

What it’s about: Santa Claus turns to violence in order to defend a little girl and her family who are targeted by a gang of criminals on Christmas Eve.

The kid attractor factor: Despite this being a movie about Santa, the bloody, foul-mouthed execution isn't quite for kids.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Believing in Santa, in whatever way that means to you, can land you on the Nice List.

Violence: Extreme bloody violence throughout, including shooting, stabbing, hammering and various other forms of creative torture and murder.


Language: Strong language and swearing throughout.

Sex: References to sex.

Drugs: Binge drinking.

Parents’ advisory: Way too violent and mature for kids. This is for mature teens and adults only.
