What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Byzantium is artier and moodier than most vampire movies. It's not particularly for either the I Am Legend crowd or Twilight lovers, but fans of Let the Right One In may enjoy it. Vampire violence is strong, with great gushes of blood, killings, and dead bodies; two characters are beheaded. Several minor characters are prostitutes, and a major character used to be one as well. There's no nudity, but there are many sexual situations and plenty of innuendo and revealing outfits. Byzantium suggests that the prostitutes are addicted to drugs, though it does this solely through body language; no drugs are shown or mentioned. Language is sparse but does include a few uses of "f--k," "s--t," and more.
