No.

The fact this is even a question is bizarre.

Not.  Why subject a small child to gore and violence?  It would scare them.

I was just in there, lol. I recommend Tim Burton, you know theyre not horror but darker, but she wants adult movies. I literally can't think of one horror movie for adults without cussing, tits, gore, violence, ext. So no recommendations from me.

Meh. My 3 year old would be okay watching it but I don't think I would be okay with it. I hate horror movies. She's still too little to realize that it's all fake.

Depends on the kid and the movie. My oldest loved Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees at that age and was fascinated with the behind-the-scenes footage about the effects and makeup. My youngest was not. She wasn't scared, but she didn't want to watch it either. So she didn't. Some of the really scary movies were absolutely off limits. I'm probably opening up a whole can of worms by saying that..... but after i make the hummus I don't have anything to do anyhow,lol.

Nope. 

We stopped watching movies like that around our son at 18 months, which is when he took interest in tv.

Are you afraid of the dark were my favorite scary shoes when I was little. I've always liked scary movies but I do think 3 is too young for them.
