What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Mother, May I Sleep with Danger? is a remake of a movie from the 1990s that focuses on a group of female vampires looking for male victims to kill and more women to add to their posse. There's a lot of sexy stuff, including frequent kissing and making out, flirting, and dating; death or feeding by vampires is often styled like a sexual encounter, including a scene set up like a rape during which a woman is forced to become a vampire. At a party where college students guzzle from red Solo cups, a man tries to take advantage of a women who appears drunk; female vampires break it up by killing him. Expect scenes of biting with spurting, pooling, and dripping blood and many lingering shots of bloody faces, mouths, and teeth. Cursing includes "s--t," "hell," and "ass." Real vampire books and movies (Twilight, Dracula) are discussed in a college course that points out some of the clichés and the sexual connotations in the vampire genre. Characters and their dilemmas are treated with more seriousness than in most movies of this ilk, making this one a tad more respectable.
