Many kids in America are allowed to see horror movies, even in theaters. Sometimes that's OK, but sometimes these kids are too young.
My older brother, Joseph, went to see "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning" in theaters with my mom. It's reasonable for him to see that movie, even though it was pretty bloody. Joseph is 16.
But, my brother said, when the movie started to get really scary, he heard this little kid bawling in the back. My brother couldn't believe that somebody would bring a little kid to a movie to see that.
When my brother was 15, he went to see "Hide and Seek," which had some frightening scenes with my mom. He told me that when he got in the theater, he saw a bunch of kids that looked 2 or 3 in there with adults ready to watch the movie.
