How do you feel about letting your children watch movies like "A Nightmare before Christmas"?

I was just wondering how you feel about movies like this. DH and my Little sister wanted to watch Coraline in theatres and there were a bunch of kids crying cause it was too scary for them. Nightmare before Christmas, Corps Bride, Coraline.. Im sure there are more... What is your view on these "scary Childrens movies"?

  • my brother used to watch it when he was a baby (the first one) and that was what 9 or 10 years ago, he loved that movie at that time and i liked it alot as a teen.

    i dont think he thought anything of it though...he was a tough guy

  • My kids love it! I love it! I see nothing wrong with it! I mean, we let them watch Alice in Wonderland and the Brave Little Toaster... Those are WAY more scary than Nightmare!

  • Many times DH & I go to http://decentfilms.com/ to see if we want the kids to watch it. We do own Nightmare Before Christmas, but I don't think we are going to ever watch Coraline or Corpse Bride. It's not necessarily the animation, but the storyline.

  • Corpse bride is not that bad. Coraline is really weird. My kids love Jack.
