I wouldn't play *any* of this to my 5 yo sister. I was traumatized by horror movies as a kid because that's what was cool back then and we all wanted to fake bravery, but in reality, we were scared, we had terrible nightmares. I spended around five years of my life scared of facing my back to the shower bc of a movie I literally *saw* a ghost from a horror movie over my bed when I was six (it obviously wasn't real, i imagined it) i was shaking like crazy and coudn't sleep The first time my sister and I saw Freddy Cruger we couldn't sleep waiting for Freddys claw to come out of the matress and kills us So no, don't play fucking horror movies for kids, even if they tell you they are not scared, you are going to ruin them, like jeez kids are alredy scared of everything

Are you fucking crazy? You want to avoid too much graphic violence but include American Werewolf? That Nazi scene is fucking intense even for adults.

An American Werewolf In London, yeah, that 3 minute long steamy sex scene and the part in the adult movie theater sure are kid-friendly.

I wouldn’t call little shop of horrors ( I know it says it in the title ) a Horror, I’ve been watching it since I was three!(although my favourite film was jaws ) it’s more of a musical-comedy than anything else

Maybe have an editor older than 40 who knows more than just what was scary in 1985. This should have been called "what scared me when I was 10."

Childs Play is not at all kid friend for most kids, and the sequels get worse. I tried to watch the 1990 but I hated it so much, but It 2017 isn't kid appropriate at all

Jaws and Poltergeist? Might as well have recommended the Exorcist and the Shining. What an awful list.

PG was easier to get in the eighties because PG-13 didn’t exist. A lot of eighties PG stuff would get the 13 added to it if were rated today.
