Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that scary images abound in this two-part TV adaptation of Terry Pratchett's book, including the character Death and the floating image of a hog god. There are stabbings and kidnappings, monsters, and wizards who inhabit a distant land in a distant universe. Fans of the book are ideal viewers and will know what to expect.

Sexual Content

Not applicable

Violence

A decent amount of spooky violence. Mr. Teatime in particular enjoys tormenting people and kills a number of people with his knife. Susan finds monsters under the bed and hurts them. The assassins guild speaks a lot about "inhuming" people, and it is their goal to kill individuals. Plus run-ins with the grim reaper, aka. Death.

Language

"Damn," and "hell."

Social Behavior

Stresses the importance of belief and fantasy for children, but not very convincingly.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

There is a God of Hangovers in this movie, who is a nice enough bloke, though he asks for liquor and acts drunkenly. Cigarette rolling and smoking. Lager drinking.
