Is Wednesday gory?

What age rating is Wednesday on Netflix? (2)

While there are scenes of violence in Wednesday, in order to be appropriate for teenagers over the age of 12, a show cannot dwell on injuries or blood and only occasional gory moments can be shown, according to the British Board of Film Classification.

Therefore, as the Tim Burton fantasy comedy is appropriate for teens, it's unlikely that Wednesday will feature any particularly gory scenes – however, if you're freaked out by faceless children, an animated severed hand, blood or anything gothic in nature, then perhaps give Wednesday a miss.

Wednesday is available to stream on Netflix now. Sign up for Netflix from £6.99 a month. Netflix is also available on Sky Glass and Virgin Media Stream.
