|Comments||DARKEST MINDS is an American sci-fi/ thriller film genre exploring a mysterious disease outbreak affecting children and killing thousands of them. The children who are affected but did not die are treated unjustly and prejudiced against by the government - which kills them and send some of them to the concentration camps. One such children who was sent to the concentration camp is 16 year old Ruby, who annoyed by the unjust treatment at the camps, escapes and joins other runaways who are seeking a safe place to stay. Ruby and her fellow escapees use their supernatural powers developed as a result of being infected by the I.A.A.N disease to fight of the government and eventually emerge victorious in the battle against the immoral government.|
Complex and mature themes psychological themes exploring deception, new world order, supernatural powers, prejudice against people who are different, sci-fi, rebellion, segregation, love, family, friendships, rejection, and teamwork which are laced with dark emotional undertones as well as a sustained sense of threat and menace. The themes may not be appropriate for children under 13 years old as they find them confusing, disturbing or upsetting. The themes may also be psychologically harmful to children under 13 years old due to the unjust, immoral treatment meted out to the infected children.
