What is Children's Horror? And what do kids get out of it? With Halloween's sweet scent still in the air and Christmas inching closer, co-hosts Robert Lendrum and Jamie Roberts take a look at their first PG film, the holiday classic Gremlins and discuss the film as a horror film for kids. What is the 4th rule of the film? Why did they leave that scene in about Kate's dad? Where did Judge Reinhold go??? What were they thinking when they made Inhumanoids? Is Rob's kid possessed? Of course kids love a movie where they watch little green men tear apart a town! Best bar scene ever?
The episode references a book by Catherine Lester called Horror Films for Children: Fear and Pleasure in American Cinema published by Bloomsbury.
