    Link: A Note To Overprotective Parents - Stop raising sissies. They are annoying little puss buckets that whine about everything.

    While I agree with the dude in principle, let`s hope that the act portrayed in that image (or those in the trailer for "Alien 3") don`t ever become "the realities of life".

    Watching gory/scary movies isn`t going to turn boys into men tbh.

    I agree with what he`s saying, but he`s not the one up all night because their 4 year old won`t sleep in his own bed anymore.

    BeccaBunn...it`s the job of the parent to be up all night with their kids. Like when your baby teethes. Being a parent isn`t easy.

    This is not advocating that you allow your 4-year-old watch an adult horror film. What`s a t issue is that they are complaining about the POSTER. If your child can`t sleep because of an image on a bus stop, you are raising a sissy.

    And god forbid you do that. School them, old style.

    Everyone has different opinions on what`s "acceptable" and what`s not. You can`t always go by "lowest common denominator" or all you`d have is a blank poster...

    "See? This won`t offend ANYONE! It`s blank!"
    "Why is it white?"
    "Gosh... gash dang it!!" >-(

    My mom took me to see An American Werewolf in London when I was about 6 years old. Because she liked horror movies and it was the 80`s and so who cares? I was so scared I couldn`t stay in the theater, so you know what she did? She went out with me, got me an ice cream cone and left me to sit on a bench outside the theater while she went back in and watched it.

    I have no abandonment issues, no fear of werewolves, in fact, I love horror movies myself now, and am quite okay and well-adjusted and love my mom. Kids are resilient. Stop coddling them. (Of course, the times being what they are, I would not recommend leaving 6-yo`s alone just about anywhere any more, but that`s different than it was 30 years ago.)

    As a kid in the 50s the movie that scared the poo out of me was when the kid changed into a dog in Disney`s "The Shaggy Dog".
    Frankly - my thoughts - are that violence has become so commonplace in media that we require more and more to get us off. Just like a drug.
    As someone who has been on the planet for awhile I`ve noticed that social violence escalates during times of war.
    There is little connect socially. We play our little video games, text people instead of actually writing or talking and basically ignore the fractured world around us.

    The original `The Day the Earth Stood still` scared the piss out of me when I was five (1953).

    when I saw `Alien` in 1979 was the only other time Movies have given me that feeling.

    By the way, this type of reaction is what we have these days. Speaking politely to those you meet, and treating them with respect is all the political correctness we need. Stop insulating your kids!

    when I was 5, my mom and grandma let me watch C.H.U.D. with them. I had nightmares for weeks, but now? I can`t get enough cheesy horror films. When I was a bit older, my parents used to also bribe the ride operators at our local amusement park to let me ride the coasters even though I was too little. Guess what? I`m still here!

    When I was a kid I had a black and white TV in my bedroom. So my parents wouldn`t know I was watching late at night I had an earpiece which had a very short lead so I normally had my nose really close to the screen.

    And this was how I watched Poltergeist when I was about 12. Scared the crap outta me. Didn`t sleep that night.

    Don`t regret it in the slightest. Love the film now.



    Hehehehe!

    When I was 3, the original "Dark Shadows" some scene where a skull was coming closer to the screen and my big brother told me it was coming to get me and I: Lost. My. Mind. (He still sends me skull pics and I`m 48 now)

    @Vimto wow, deja vu! Did you also keep your hand on the little brightness knob to whip the screen to black in case your folks came close/in? :D

    All kids should have to watch Killer Klowns From Outer Space.....NOT! My nephew saw that movie and to this day he`ll cross the street to avoid a clown and he`s grown now.

    @handimanner: Yup! You`ve got that correct IMHO. Same for p0rn and lots of other "social ailments" eh?

    It`s much easier to increase the dose than to improve the quality of the product.

    If your child doesn`t know the difference between a movie and reality, your parenting sucks big donkey balls. Also, censorship does not replace good parenting.

    thank god, when I was young, my parents did not let me watch that scary movie about a girl who was transported to another dimension, where she was drugged by a field full of opium poppies, attacked and flown off by demented flying monkeys, put into a chamber to suffocate from lack of air by an evil sorceress, and have to kill that witch in the most hideous way of dissolving her flesh.
