Choosing the appropriate scariest movie for a youngster carries a lot of weight: get it right, and your child will find a new favourite. If you make the incorrect decision, you’ll have nightmares for weeks.
We’ve broken down some of the finest scary-ish movies for kids of various ages to help your kids dip their toes into the macabre. You won’t find anything really frightening here, but you can expose your youngster to Michael Myers at your own risk. However, among their ranks are some of the finest comedy and animated films, as well as a few really terrifying horror classics for the older youngsters. Just remember to bring your nightlight.
1. Monsters, Inc. (2001)
This classic Pixar picture was an immensely memorable breakthrough in animation technology as well as continues a heartwarming’spooky’ narrative for your littles, and that’s a certain win (with teeny, tiny horrors) for the youngest movie aficionados. Monsters Sully (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal) work for Monsters, Inc., a power corporation inside a world where Monsters are the only ones who exist. The cries of human children power the power station (collected by monsters who go into the human world to scare them). Because one of Mike as well as Sully’s nightly haunts goes horribly wrong and takes a little kid into their realm, they must band together to make things right (and eventually save ‘Boo’ from the more worse horrors). The film is rated G.
2. Coraline (2009)
It’s a snooze fest when Coraline moves into their new house, which seems to really be ancient. Her parents are preoccupied, and that she is bored as just a result. When she discovers a hidden door with an other reality hiding beyond it, everything changes. How’s that for a unique residence? Everything appears to be beautiful in this new environment, yet nothing is actually perfect. When fall arrives, you won’t be able to just say anything about a screening of this Neil Gaiman book-turned-movie. The film is PG-13.
