Monster High™: Ghouls Rule unearths an old conflict between “Normies” and monsters - and things are about to get scary! For years, students at Monster High™ were warned that Halloween was a night to stay inside and avoid conflict at all costs. But Frankie and her friends discover that ghouls and “Normies” once loved to spend the holiday together! The ghouls decide to turn back the clock and use the night to celebrate their individuality and show that it’s okay to "Be Yourself. Be Unique. Be a Monster™”!

Toy line characters teach tolerance -- and iffy body images.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Monster High: Ghouls Rule is inspired by a toy line from Mattel, so there's a strong marketing tie-in to consider for kids. The movie's messages about diversity, battling stereotypes, and overcoming differences are unmistakable, and the colorful cast of monsters and ghouls reference lore about vampires, werewolves, and other creatures of the dark. Even so, there's nothing frightening about the movie or its friendly stars, so it's a viable option for kids who aren't quite ready for the scary stuff. Parents' biggest concern is likely to be what the female characters' twiggy, doe-eyed, made-up appearances say about body image, but if your kids (and you) can see past the exterior, they'll find a surprising diversity of personalities and positive traits like compassion, determination, and intelligence among the cast.
