People may completely disagree with my, but I also think y'all should check out Cabin in the Woods, fantastic campy parody of a horror film, yet still able to be taken somewhat serious as a horror film. And if you are well versed in the horror genre, there is a scene in it with SEVERAL hints and imagery from other horror movies, and it's a great time to go back, pause, and see how many you can find. Showed my kids Army of Darkness and they loved it.

Haven't ventured deeper into horror with them as I don't want to deal with nightmares. I'd say 13 is old enough for the original Halloween.

I'm gonna lodge a vote here for Halloween. I was 12 when I first saw it and that was the first time I turned off a movie and said to myself, "I'm going to be a horror fan from now on". The transformation was that simple. Plus, my parents had no issue with me watching it - gore factor is shockingly low, and one titty wasn't going to turn me into a raging pervert. Been so long since I watched Halloween. Thought it was quite gory, but that's probably my memory playing tricks.

Maybe you are thinking of Coraline? That one was advertised as "From the creator of Nightmare before christmas" yet tim burton had no involvement.

It's always called Tim Burtons Corps Bride. But I saw in a behind the scenes that he didn't really direct much. Mike Johnson did mainly all the work and Tim Burton just gave his name. So he's mainly the producer and to draw attention. Every horror movie is appropriate for a year-old. These are the experiences that make a movie fan for life.

Yep, Dracula and the Wolfman. No matter how often I tell him that they are 'classics' he just sees crusty old black and white films with dodgy special effects.

Maybe he'll appreciate that sort of movie more when he gets a bit older. That's why I've held off showing him The Haunting till he is a bit older. I don't want to witness his disappointment at one of my faves. Looking forward to experiencing his reaction to the underwater boost hull scene in Jaws in a months time when we see it on the big screen: All of the Hammer stuff is in color - did you actually show him the old Universal films with Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney?

I think I was around that age when I watched too. Took me a second time watching when I was older to appreciate but man it's one of the best. Of course Cronenberg movies can get a bit gory to say the least , I guess it depends on your definition of a "gore movie" as a horror movie with gore in it covers most of them. Overall though I'd say most horror movies are fine for a 13 year old because if they scare him, that's kinda the point: Cannibal Holocaust not even a good movie, and the animal killings are real so I also disagree with the movie on an ethical standpoint.

Re-Animator overall not that bad but there is one scene in particular, you know it when you see it. I also loved slashers around that age but some of them have some sex and stuff if that's a red flag. The ring is a good pg one. I saw it when I was 13 and it was in theatres and I thought it was terrifying. For newer stuff, I just watched The Final Girls and really enjoyed it.

Plus it's PG so it's pretty safe. Housebound was also good and more creepy then funny, then creepy again and only had one bloody scene. I'd recommend Thirteen Ghosts, there's some minor nudity but other than that it's reasonably tame, and it has enough to it to keep a 13 year old entertained. I've been watching horror movies since I was 5. I'm 14 now and my dad lets me watch pretty much any horror movie I want. Most of them are probably okay for a 13 year old. Watched The Hole recently i think it was a good tame family horror film and its directed by Joe Dante.

I suggest 80s and 90s because a lot of it is so cheesy it is just fun. Gives people a different perspective of the genre and what used to actually scare people. Makes the whole idea of murder and sex kind of silly. If you can tell us what is inappropriate in your eyes we can give you a much better list. I was watching horror movies at a very young age and I am only slightly fucked up. I would say inappropriate stuff would be things like Hostel, Saw and other stuff in that vein.
