introduced them a few weeks ago to "jaws".

they enjoyed it a lot. i sat with them while they watched it of course.

what other flicks can people think of that kids can start to enjoy at this sort of age?

obviously the likes of jurassic park and king kong are mainstream flicks for kids - i was thinking more of the type of horrors and thrillers that we oldies were brought up on.

suggestions please.

beetlejuice /nightmare before xmas/monsters inc a real favourite/ The corpse bride/and search under comedy horror films for the older child lots have been made.
Cos if they could handle jaws at that age maybe they have strong stomachs.Terrified me in the cinema when it came out

And for the adults Big Brother/News at Ten/anything that has to do with Pete andre and whatsherface

Quite right by todays standards.The onslaught of grisly films hadnt really started then and today its not so much flower power as opposed to just power.Jaws was rated 18 and terrified audiences around the world but today kids laugh at the tameness compared to what they view now.

My kids and I like the comedy type horrors and i disuade them from watching modern gory or psycho nutter type movies .The fact that films like Hills have eyes /Texas chainsaw have been remade shows how times have changed to keep up with modern taste . The live realtime violence that is readily available on various media dosnt make it the standard with which we should identify as normal . Enough ranting anyway Op your question was about the kids not your viewpoint but I wonder if you sat and watched jaws alone for the first time in a dim or dark room
knowing nothing about the film on your own what your reaction would have been to the head dropping through the boat cos as I remember the whole cinema audience jumped .

have to agree with you, me and my 13 year old watched the amytiville horror (the original one) the other night and it wasn't scary at all! it used to scare me to death when i watched it at her age at sleepovers!

theatre of blood and vampire circus i watched as a kid

Tremors

American Werewolf In London, Shaun Of The Dead are decent enough I guess, and they're horror comedies. Get them onto the Evil Dead Trilogy, goes from scary to funny. The Wicker Man is great and not too bad as is The Others - I think it's only a 12...
Oh, Hellraiser, Alien and The Thing too!
I had nightmares for 2 weeks when I was five from watching Halloween and Child's Play with my older cousins... so you could try them? Child's Play is only a 15 anyways.

Also, The Monster Squad. Not at all scary, just awesome. A poor man's Goonies with all the Universal monsters in it.

Theatre of Blood is a classic in my collection of Hammer movies, became addicted to them as a child and Chris Lee is still my top Dracula :thumbsup:

My son reckons the original b&w Dracula is one of the scariest films he's seen. Not gorey, but very atmospheric - no music actually makes it spookier. Don't know if kids would have patience with a b&w though.

Me, I reckon "What Lies Beneath" is about as scarey as I can handle!
