My dd1 is 13 and hasn't watched any scary movies before. I don't like the idea of her seeing anything too gory but she's expressed interest in seeing something scary. Any suggestions? Do you remember your first scary movie?

I was thinking Halloween might be a good on. I've never seen the Friday ones myself

I don't remember my first one... my mother loved scary movies though and I always watched them with her. When she passed away (I was 11) I wasn't allowed to watch them any more BC my grandparents didn't think I should. Funny part is I was 20 when I realized I had seen all the Freddy movies and yet had never seen him kill anyone. My mom knew the movies by heart and would send me out of the room for popcorn or to peek in on my siblings or something every time something gory happened.

Now I do remember being about 5 and sneaking down to sit and the stairs and watch "Twilight Zone" re runs when I was supposed to be in bed...

I had two teenage sisters growing up, I've been watching horror movies since I can remember! They have some R.L. Stine movies to go with three books. They are usually a half an hour long and made for her age. I think they are called Goosebumps. I had a bunch of the books growing up.

I should have her watch the twilight zone or something Hitchcock. What a great memory to have about your mom!

I don't remember my first scary movie, but Poltergeist really kind of freaked me out.  I showed it to my 15yo SS and he thought it was lame.  He said the Paranormal Activity movies were scary...and I thought those were lame.  I guess there is a generation gap, lol.
