  • Yes I've seen it.
    And no i don't. I joke TERRIFIED me. As in I thought it was quite horrific and I went to see it with my 9 year old and she had to sleep with the light on that night and she's not a child that is scared easily so I would say no personally. But obviously it's up to you and what your child is like.

  • My daughter (11yrs) and I watched it. I was not the greatest. I would not waste money to see it. It wasn't worth the $1.12 I paid at the redbox.

  • your kids like Tim Burton movies? I would start out with The Nightmare Before Christmas then try The Corpse Bride. My dd's are 8 & 9 and watched those 2 movies starting like 2 yrs ago. If they can handle that then Coraline isn't that bad. It's a little creepy...but it's TIM BURTON, you kinda know what you are getting into...LOL. My girls liked it!

  • I haven't seen it but all 4 of my kids have watched it with my dad. They are 9, 7, 6 and 3. My 3yo talks about it all the time and requests to watch it. I didn't even realize it was that scary but it didn't bother my kids. Then again, they watch zombie movies and stuff all the time and aren't scared.
