THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES is a US fantasy adventure in which a young woman discovers she lives in a world where demons, vampires and werewolves are real.

Violence

There are several scenes in which the young heroes fight fantastical creatures. These include battles with vampires and flaming demons. In one of these battles a man is stabbed in the back with a claw, which is briefly shown emerging from his chest. There are also occasional scenes in which human characters fight one another. In one of these, a man who is restrained in a chair is repeatedly punched in the face.

Threat

Moments of threat include a scene in which a dog transforms into a demon and chases after a young woman, ripping her house to pieces as it does so.

There is the occasional sight of blood, some mild bad language, mild sex references, and a throwaway reference to hallucinogenic drugs.
