A science fiction classic that may scare the youngest ones

This science fiction classic movie is a must-see. However, at 40, I still remember it as one of the movies that scared me the most as a young kid. Of course, it also made me an SF fan. Impressive scenes are the invisible monster appearing briefly in a force field and the door melting when the main characters are chased by the monster. Parents should watch the movie with their younger children and discuss its themes with them.

Not just a harmless cult movie for us...

This may be a famous cult movie but its not appropriate for young kids as it has some pretty awful messages about women deserving whatever they get if they look beautiful and wear certain clothes around men. I turned the movie off. My kids need positive messages about consent culture, not a reinforcement of a culture women are still fighting 60 years later. It might be okay for older kids but only if you are prepared to talk to them about the subject. It just wasn't a fun movie.
