Parent of a 5 year old Written byHeather S. September 27, 2017

Not scary, but some talk of murder and death.

I teach horror films for a living, and I thought this would be a good starter film for my almost six-year old son. He gets scared very easily, but he was not scared of this film. It provides a good opportunity to talk about the importance of kindness and how "you shouldn't treat people like they treat Frankenstein's creature, even if they have a body that looks different than yours", according to my son. There is some discussion of murder and corpses, of course, and a little bit of violence.
