Why Is ParaNorman Rated PG?


Violence: Frequent scenes of gruesome images include corpses and zombies with dismembered body parts. Zombies are hit by cars and subjected to other violence. Townspeople threaten to burn a building with children inside. A horror movie within this film depicts a zombie eating brains. A teacher calls her students “useless.” A witch attacks a young boy.

Sexual Content: A girl fawns over a shirtless boy. A boy is caught freeze-framing an aerobics video—we see a woman clothed in exercise wear. A boy reveals his sexual orientation when he mentions he has a boyfriend.

Language: A mild rude term for female breasts, a mild profanity and a term of Christian deity are heard.

Drugs/Alcohol: None noted.
