The Book of Lists - Horror: Cerina Vincent's Top Ten Horror Movies Too Scary For Little Girlsby MinaGrentham | created - 05 Sep 2014 | updated - 05 Sep 2014 | Public
Actress Cerina Vincent is best known to horror fans for her roles as Marcy in Eli Roth's Cabin Fever (for which she was nominated for the Saturn Awards' "Best Face of the Future").
Though I'm madly in love with the horror genre now, I have to admit that I was not always a horror fan. Unfortunately, between the tender ages of five and nine, I was exposed to horror films that terrified me until I was twenty. Maybe I had an overactive imagination, or maybe I just wasn't as cool as some other kids, but these movies screwed with my young brain; I worried and obsessed about these films daily, and spent too many nights falling asleep with the light on or sleeping in my parents' bed. It wasn't my parents who showed me these films too early--it was my friends' parents. These adults were renting frightening films for their daughters' slumber parties and had no clue of the terrible effect that these films had on our innocent little lives. I now realize what a compliment that is to these brilliant horror filmmakers, but I feel I wasted too many years thinking I hated horror, when what I really hated was my friends' parents. So, to stop turning chicks away from horror, and to ensure more female horror fans, here is a list of films that little girls should not watch until they are old enough to appreciate them.
