HORRIBLE HISTORIES is a cinema adaptation of the BBC comedy series, which is set in ancient Britain with Boudica leading a rebellion against the occupying Romans.

Violence

There are comic battle scenes featuring undetailed slashings with swords, axes being thrown and blows being delivered. The action is presented in a deliberately silly manner with, for example, a decapitated head landing in a woman's arms who looks around and asks, "Anyone missing a head?". In similarly comic manner, a bottle is broken over a soldier's helmet, a woman is stabbed, and a spectator at a gladiatorial contest is splashed with unrealistic-looking blood from action which occurs off screen.

Injury detail

There are shots of severed heads mounted on spikes as trophies, but their effect is comic rather than gory.

Rude humour

There is mild rude humour in verbal and visual jokes about urination, vomiting and toilets dug into the ground.

Language

There is mild bad language ('gits').
