Where the Wild Things Are has been thrilling parents and getting their offspring quivering. Which family films still give you the shakes?
Is Where the Wild Things Are, Spike Jonze's retelling of the Maurice Sendak tale about a little boy who finds kindred spirit with a horde of lumbering beasts, too scary for children? It almost certainly depends on the child. What's certain is that kids enjoy being ripped from their existences and challenged on a sensory level just as much as adults do. And they may find the strangest of things terrifying - as a child I was incapable of viewing Sam the blue eagle from the Muppets for more than a few seconds without experiencing epic nightmares that froze me to my very core.
Here are some other films which may just have parents reaching for the remote, though any shivers they engender will surely manifest themselves »
