In the Underworld, Vampires are a secret clan of modern aristocratic sophisticates whose mortal enemies are the Lycans (werewolves), a shrewd gang of street thugs who prowl the city's underbelly. No one knows the origin of their bitter blood feud, but the balance of power between them turns even bloodier when a beautiful young Vampire warrior and a newly-turned Lycan with a mysterious past fall in love. Kate Beckinsale and Scott Speedman star in this modern-day, action-packed tale of ruthless intrigue and forbidden passion, ­all set against the dazzling backdrop of a timeless, Gothic metropolis.

Pulpy, punk-ish story with some intense violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Underworld is a dark, violent horror movie about battles to the death between vampires and werewolves. Non-stop action results in one grisly scene after another. The film contains countless bloody killings, decapitations, impalements, up-close vampire fang attacks, gun battles, point-blank shootings, and numerous gory transitions from human form into monstrous animal creatures. A few strong words are sprinkled throughout ("bitch," multiple uses of "f--k," "s--t," "Jesus Christ"). Some characters smoke cigarettes, and it’s unclear whether vampires shown in a social setting multiple times are drinking red wine or blood.
