I wouldn't. My twins are only 2 though. I'm asking because Saturday, I went to the theater and saw Mama. OMFG. That movie made me cry, it was so horrific. I took my 11 year old sister, Anthony and Lexies 3 friends. My momma took my twins, and my older sisters 2 kids to play at this place in our mall. I would have NEVER taken my sister to see that movie if I had known how Scary it was. She is a baby with fear, so am I, and she wanted to leave. Lmao. I felt bad...

My 10 yr old can't handle scary movies, which is really disappointing to me. I had hoped we would do that together.  I have a co-worker whose kids love scary movies. Depends on the kid I guess.

I didn't know if Mama would be all that scary since it's pg-13, but the trailer looked scary.

Depends on what you consider "scary" we took our 4 year old to see the 2nd batman movie and he loved it.

I think its PG-13 because its not 'Gore based' it is pure horror.

1 mom liked this

We saw The Possesion in the theater, excellent.  At home I have introduced them to the"classics" that I grew up with like The Omen, The Exorcist, The Birds, Cujo, etc. They do really good with them, no nightmares.

Yes my kids are huge horror movie fans. I took my 10 and 12 year old sons to see Mama....it was pretty scary. My kids have all seen the steven king movies, the halloween movie, Jason, Freddy, and Chuckie movies. They love them. My kids are ages 14,12,10,8, and 5. They have also seen the paranormal activities and scream movies.

I don't want to see that movie but I'd love to know the story plot. I haven't seen a scary movie in awhile. The last one was case39. No I don't let my kids watch scary movies. They are all afraid of the dark. I still kinda am lol.
