Recently, Shock contributor Christopher Jiminez wrote a spot-on article about influential made-for-television horror classics and it got me thinking about horror in general and I realized how much of my fascination and love for horror stems from my childhood.
Now, my mom was a little rigid when it came to movies. So, while a ton of my friends saw Scream in theaters and were renting The Exorcist, I was stuck with the Universal classics and some of the more “kid appropriate” horror. But looking back on it, I don’t mind that at all because I have a deep appreciation for the shows and movies that did their best to create a family friend horror experience.
In no particular order (except for number one), I wanted to take some time to applaud and highlight some of the best kid friendly horror of all time.
