Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this made-for-TV animated movie centers on the occult and can be quite scary. Based on a popular series of graphic novels known for their creepy depictions of the undead, it follows in the same vein. The storyline centers on vampires, and there's plenty of blood, including a few torture scenes. Blood seeps out from a ghastly torture device, victims are shown drained of blood, and some ghostly statues weep bloody tears. The overall effect is dark and spooky and could easily be disturbing for young viewers.

Sexual Content

Some female demons appear nude, but there's no sex.


Hellboy and his colleagues are on a mission to destroy the undead, who don't tend to go quietly into the night. There's plenty of fighting, ranging from simple bashing and crashing to more subtle combat involving spiritual incantations. Though much of the violence is cartoonish, there's a lot of blood, and many of these bloody images can be pretty frightening.

Social Behavior

Hellboy's organization functions much like a military unit. The characters tend to follow their orders, though often with a certain amount of griping. Though Hellboy sometimes prefers to follow his hunches instead of his orders, he reveres the group's leader, Dr. Broom, who's both a mentor and father-figure. The big, red demon's obvious compassion for the frail old man is touching.


Part of a popular comic book franchise.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Hellboy loves a good cigar, but otherwise there's little drinking or drug use.
