Don't show children Christine it'll only bore them

It did me.

In that case I will replace it with brain dead.

That's fine because the two main characters are family friendly. In fact, I don't think they swear once.

I always knew my own children will be evil killing machines. Its not put me off. However studying politics has totally put me off. That reminds me I need to sort out my sig but which quotes to use....

Signs

Awful film.

Marketed totally to the wrong crowd.

They made a film about a man getting his faith back in god and marketed as a sci fi horror.

Awful film so many plot holes. I mean FFS water??? These aliens traveled an unknown distance to a planet covered by 2/3rds water when it so happened its lethal to them. An unforgivable movie by the end I was wishing that they would just exterminate the main cast from orbit and let it finish already.

Sorry but I agree its kid friendly not violent or full of swearing but it does not stop it being an awful film.

the 1993 version of Invasion of the Bodysnatchers...I think it was just called Body Snatchers is good.

A friend of mine has an 9 or 10 year old brother, and whenever the kid watches movies like Die Hard, Gladiator, The Matrix; movies with excessive killings, he scares poopless.

I think sticking to the adventure type movies is wise. Speilberg kinda stuff. I remember awe struck and horrified during the Nazi face melt scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

But the issue is with the practical "That looks so fake! This is so boring! Why are we watching B&W?" young uns nowadays. 

BounceGiggle I sound like a geezer.

It really depends on the child the parent and what is review as horror...

My top 10 horror films for children ages 8 and older...


1, Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)

2, The Classic B&W Monster Horror:
Dracula (1931)
Frankenstein (1931)
The Mummy (1932)
The Invisible Man (1933)
The Thing from Another World (1951)
Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)
Them! (1954)

[I dont want to sound like an ass, but many kids do find Black/White a little boring because it doesnt have color, since we normally do watch color TV. Although, they do make a great starting point]

3, The Birds (1963)

4, Creepshow (1982)

5, The Blob (1958)

6, Clownhouse (1989) [unless you dont want your child to see this movie because of Victor Salva]

7, House of Wax (1953)

8, Lady in White (1988)

9, Army of Darkness (1992)

10, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (1973) (TV)


Why I'd didnt list Psycho or Jaws?

Psycho is an adult horror film, that's best when the child could understand its content. I dont see Jaws as a horror film, although it's musical score is quite spooky.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
