Is Teen Wolf The Movie Appropriate for Kids Under 17?

Parents need to know that the things to watch for most in Teen Wolf: The Movie are the violence and language, which gives it the TV-MA rating. The characters are full-grown adults now. However, some of the violence is a bit campy, so it may not pack quite the scare for tweens and teens. And younger kids just won’t be interested, especially if they haven’t seen the TV series. 

Teen Wolf: The Movie is pure fan service, but that doesn’t make it bad. If you’re not already a fan, you just won’t get it. Since I didn’t watch the original series regularly, a lot was lost on me. But I also get fandoms. When Veronica Mars ended abruptly, without closure, I begged for a movie.

We finally got one, and it wasn’t a cinematic masterpiece, but it also made my heart happy to see what happened to some of the characters. And Teen Wolf: The Movie does the same for its fandom. It’s good to see you, but also not exactly the closure that’s needed either.
