Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this comic book-based, made-for-TV animated movie delivers a big dose of the supernatural. There are plenty of ghosts, spirits, and demons, and one significant episode in which a character is possessed, which could be scary for young children.
Several violent battles against demons and ghosts, but the action, while dark, is more comic-like than graphic. One character is possessed by evil spirits.
Some unusual situations occur as Hellboy and his squad -- which tends to follow a rather rigid military order -- face off against the unconforming undead. In the end, this movie really comes down to good vs. evil, and it's pretty easy to tell which side everyone is on.
Part of a popular comic book franchise.

Some smoking. Hellboy does enjoy his cigars.
