Peacock’s Sick is an edge-of-your-seat slasher flick that reminds viewers of the scariest time of all: the pandemic. Check out the details in my parents guide movie review.
Sick, a film by Peacock, was released on Netflix yesterday, January 13th. The film is set at the beginning of the COVID pandemic, when all residents were forced to stay in their homes and quarantine. It is the brainchild of Scream franchise writer Kevin Willamson and co-writer Katelyn Crabb, and it offers a fresh take on pandemic horror films that will frighten viewers with the mere mention of the 2020 pandemic. Check out the details in my parents guide movie review.

Sick Age Appropriate Parents Guide
Let’s take a look at what parents need to know before letting their kids watch Sick movie.
Language: Peacock’s Sick contains strong language, with profanity used throughout. Lookout words include: f*ck, sh*t, d*ck, a**h*le, d*mn, and more.
Mature Content: Other than the language, the other biggest concern for parents in the movie is the violence it contains. The story centers around a murderer on the loose, so characters are shown wielding guns and knives, getting stabbed, shot, having their throats slit, and more. There is a very graphic scene that shows a character getting their face bashed in and another getting their throat slashed. Characters are shown consuming alcohol and smoking cannabis.
