Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Wayward Pines is a gloomy mystery from the master of twists, M. Night Shyamalan. It has dark themes and some startling moments, including a public throat-slitting and a sadistic nurse who chases patients with a syringe. A side plot centers on an affair between a married Secret Service agent and his partner, so you'll see some suggestive kissing but no nudity. You'll also hear words such as "damn" and "hell" and see characters drinking socially at the local watering hole.

Sexual Content

Sexually charged kissing; a secondary plot involves adultery.


Bloody imagery includes violent injections, throat-slitting, primitive surgery, and decomposing corpses; several "look-away" moments.


"Damn," "hell," and the like are audible.

Social Behavior

Major themes include distrust, duplicity, and government conspiracy.
