Family guide to new movie releases
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.
Parents’ advisory: This is too violent and scary for little ones but OK for older-kid horror fans and teens.
