Behind the scenes, there are a few rules filmmakers have to follow to appease the studio execs and censors. Some are as silly as the number of curse words used by a main character, while others are as arbitrary as how much side boob is considered nudity. These rules are put in place to protect movie audiences, despite the genre, and the biggest rules on the list are no killing animals and no killing children.
In horror movies the sometimes senseless death of characters is to be expected. One of the high points for most horror fans is the comfort in knowing that there will be murder and mayhem during the film that they’re watching. That being said, the death of an animal or a child is still jarring, weather it happens on or off camera. What’s most important is if that death moved the story along or was just there for shock value?
During this episode of Lethal Listings, we’ll be leaving the lovable pets alone as we focus on children in the horror genre and firmly state The Kids Are NOT Alright: 7 Horror Films That Did The Unthinkable!
