Well until recently I thought so too, and while If I ever have kids I won't limit them and will let them see any movie they want, I do want to keep an eye to make sure they don't see crazy things and want to imitate them. Recently I saw a movie called AVALON. Horrible movie, but it did taught a lesson among it's terrible plot. That these kids in like the 50s were watching a black and white show called cliffhanger where there was a trail of gunpowder that was going to lead to a bomb and the hero had to stop it. So the kids in the movie did the same thing with a model airplane and alcohol and nearly burned down their house and then later on burned down a factory or might as well have. Then they learned the lesson, so yeah some kids are too young to not understand that this may be wrong, these were like 7 year old kids in the movie, and while I'm sure a teen should understand this , I can see the fear of not controlling what stuff a 5 year old sees.
Anyway that's that. Back to Carrie. I do not like horror films, but I will still see this, hopefully it won't traumatize me
But it should be cool because I haven't seen the original Carrie
