Welcome to our countdown to the most anxiety-inducing horror films for parents! Today is day twelve.
Each day, we are covering the films I both love and hate because they’re awesome and they give me panic attacks now that I’m a mom.
Okay, before we even get started, I admit, today’s entry is a bit more serious than the others so far, but don’t worry, we’re just clowning around.
Disclaimer: Trigger warnings are a given when you talk about horror, but I’m going to say it anyway. Many subjects covered by horror films are disturbing to parents in ways we can’t possibly understand and each is unique to the parent and his/her experiences. Tread carefully and know your limits. If this begins to be too much, there’s no shame in closing the window. Also, this post contains some spoilers throughout.
