What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that You Won't Be Alone is a bewitching folk horror with strong scenes of gore, sex, abuse, and violence. Set in 19th-century Macedonia, it involves a teenage girl, Nevena (Sara Klimoska), who is turned into a witch, allowing her to kill others and take on their form. Grisly scenes involve death and human entrails, and a baby is cut and has their tongue scratched out -- off-screen, though blood is shown. Sexual intercourse is portrayed and full male and female nudity shown. Traditional gender roles and physical and sexual abuse are normalized in the small village, though in observing them as new experiences, the central character goes some way to calling them out. Occasional language includes "bugger" and "damn" and there is some smoking and an incident of drinking to the point of intoxication. As well as its creepy folklore origins, the story is about understanding humanity and developing empathy toward others.
