Review this title!

Scared my sensitive girl, paradoxically

It's about an overly sensitive boy who learns to overcome his fears. But the Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde segment, and the generally suspenseful build up to the "horror" has given my sensitive 7 year old a renewed fear of the dark. Fast-forwarding would have skipped 20 minutes of an 8 minute movie. It did introduce some classic book titles, but not really in a way that makes kids want to read them... more like really brief Cliff notes. The librarian was not "unbalanced" or particularly creepy, just wild-haired like you expect from Christopher Lloyd. The relationship between the dad and the boy was awkward and resolved unrealistically. As much as this is a good idea for a movie, I recommend against watching it. Sorry.
