Family guide to new movie releases

Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service on

Published in Parenting News


Rated PG-13 for violent content and terror, some strong language and a suggestive reference.

What it’s about: A high-tech doll programmed by an aunt to comfort her grieving niece turns out to have a dark side.

The kid attractor factor: This is a horror movie, but it will appeal to teens and younger horror fans, especially with it's PG-13 rating and cheeky attitude.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Don't trust the technology in your home! Or anywhere!

Violence: M3GAN is a murderously naughty doll. She attacks a young boy, kills a dog, tortures a neighbor, stabs a tech executive and brawls with her maker.


Language: Some swearing.

Sex: None

Drugs: None

Parents’ advisory: This is too violent and scary for little ones but OK for older-kid horror fans and teens.
