Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this made-for-TV tween movie contains a few mildly scary scenes including some spooky red fog; a deep, bellowing warlock voice; and a growling creature-monster with glowing eyes. Some strange-looking characters appear throughout the movie, including a friendly skeleton taxi driver, a drooling troll, and some hooded demon-like creatures. On several occasions the main teen character breaks or bends rules, though she's generally well behaved. The primary bad characters are three young women who wear tight clothing and heavy makeup and treat others very badly, including teasing and tricking them.

Sexual Content

The Sinister Sisters wear lots of makeup, dress slightly provocatively, and walk with sexy swaggers. They get a lot of male attention.


One character is turned into a dog and kept in a cage. A few other potentially scary (but non-graphic) scenes, including spooky red fog and a monster with glowing eyes.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

The main character occasionally breaks rules, but usually for good causes. Her enemies tease, taunt, laugh at, and even enslave others, but they eventually get punished. The cast is largely white, though the main antagonists are Asian. The positive message of diversity is promoted through metaphor.
