Yo parentals what were you thinking. Every single movie on this list I saw with my parents full consent AND ENCOURAGEMENT!!
  1. The Leprechaun - 5 y/o
    This one is actually on my older cousins who were supposed to be babysitting, but my dad was like eh it's fine. This one terrified me, I'm still a bit unsettled by St Pattys Day honestly.
  2. Edward Scissorhands - 7 y/o
    I watched it four times the first day I saw it and ABSOLUTELY ADORED the entire film and him! Then when it was time for bed I was absolutely petrified that he would somehow become evil and want to kill me. Idk man.
  3. Silence of the Lambs - 9 y/o
    Nightmares for MONTHS. But I loved it, still do. In my opinion, it's one of the finest films in existence but at 9 I don't think I truly appreciated it.
  4. Bram Stoker's Dracula - 10 y/o
    There is so much sexiness in this film. On top of all that, it scared me so much I legitimately went out and bought a plastic cross necklace to ward off vampires from my bedroom. Weird kid.
  5. Pulp Fiction - 11 y/o
    Ok language, violence, sex— as the classic Tarantino, this movies got all the good stuff in it. The violence never really bothered me, I think by this point I was pretty desensitized to it, but the ending ROCKED MY WORLD. This movie was too cool to me. So inappropriate though, my god.
  6. Interview with a Vampire - 12 y/o
    Didn't scare me as much as it just put me on edge. I adored the film but also sobbed like a baby because I just wanted them to get together. A tad too existential for an innocent kid like me.
  7. Fight Club - 12 y/o
    My mom went on a kick trying to prove to me how hot Brad Pitt was, this one started my obsession with Edward Norton. Anyways, this is far too violent and sexual for a pre-teen but I was really into it and adored the book and was a total nerd quoting this like a #coolkid
  8. 🍦🍦🍦
    I'll probably add to this list as I remember more of my weird ass (but amazing) childhood film education. Anyone else out there have totally inappropriate parents?
