The Sixth Sense
Age of kids that can handle it: 14+
Why it's scary: Though this film can at times be as scary as an R-rated horror flick, most of the scary scenes are those that make you jump but end quickly. Seeing as the film deals with a young boy who can see dead people, the boy is often afraid, a fact he wears openly through the movie, and there are a ton of dead people just walking around at any given time. Some of the scenes include violent deaths such as hanging, suicide, and poisoning, and the movie opens with a shooting. If your child is up for it though, it's one of the greats!
