Took the fam to Fright Fest at Six Flags over the weekend. 7yo handled it pretty well, thinkin it may be time for her first horror movie, but what???
Obviously something w/o a ton of foul language or gore...
Maybe a classic??? A thriller ? Go!

Rules

ETA- picks

Lost Boys
Ghostbusters
Signs
Goosebump series
Gremlins
(Original) Night of the Living Dead- Netflix has it
Beetlejuice

ETA- What is on Netflix, Crackle or Hulu that fits the bill???

Aliens was mine when I was 11-12...but it was a double edged sword...Chest burster scene was wild as hell but watching skinny ol sigourney weaver run around in her undies at the end almost gave me a pantsburster

Killer Klowns from Outer Space. I think that was the first "Scary" movie I ever saw.

I thought it was terrifying at the time, but I was pretty young.


The theme song kicks ass, tho.

Which was the vampire movie with the two coreys?

Lost Boys? That one's pretty tame and a classic, too.

Cute kiddo!

We don't do scary movies. I don't like them, and neither does my wife. My kids (two boys and a girl, 5-8 years old) watch little TV and what they do watch, My wife or I preview first. We watch a ton of kids movies and fun shows, but The Sand Lot has about the scariest stuff/ part I'll allow.

I would check out House. It is rated R for violence and thematic events, but it's not very gory abd there's no cussing. It's actually a Christian made movie but not to the point where it's in your face.

Make sure not to confuse that for the "House" movie that came out in the eighties.

Dracula
Carnival of souls
That sort of stuff.

Nightmare before Christmas
Coraline

In a year or two, Gremlins and Beetlejuice.

Gremlins does have a Santa spoiler in it, if your kid still believes in Santa.

Our kids are pretty sheltered. But my sister let my daughter watch The Grudge when she was 6. She slept in our room for a week.

That's a pretty good one. Tame, not much gore (is there any gore? It's been a while...).

Relevant to OPs question; I went to see Annabelle today and there were three kids between 5-7 in the theater. No. No fucking way would I expose a kid to that movie at that age. But whatever... I don't have to wake up in the middle of the night to children's screams.

Night of the living dead. Original.

Or

The day the earth stood still. Original. If it doesn't bore her.

Cute kid.
