Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this horror-based dramady is heavy on violence and sexuality. The gore -- which includes murders and blood-sucking -- is somewhat tempered by the fact that it's committed by classic horror characters like vampires and werewolves. One character engages in multiple romantic encounters -- expect passionate sexual scenes that include some bare backs and implied nudity and often end in a bloody attack. Though the series may appeal to teens, it deals with themes of addiction, loneliness, and being an outsider in a decidedly adult manner.

Sexual Content

Heavy sexuality and partial nudity (naked backs, upper torso, nude men with sensitive parts covered) especially as it relates to the vampires and their attacks upon young women. Like many takes on the vampire myth, the series weaves strong sexual themes into the blood lust of the creatures.


The series features vampires and werewolves as lead characters and their gory exploits are chronicled in detail that pushes the boundaries of basic cable. A great deal of blood is depicted and there is an element of sexual violence to the vampires' approach to their prey.


Use of gateway language such as "ass" and "hell."

Social Behavior

Sends the message that everyone has deeply embedded human needs, from companionship to acceptance, and that despite some very powerful struggles, there is value in striving to be the best "human" one can be. Throughout these deeper messages are images of ghastly violence.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Occasional social drinking and smoking, but little drug use. The vampires are often depicted in such a way that their blood thirst is meant to suggest a heroin-like addiction.
