I'm so glad I'm not the only one! I watched awful horror movies as a child and as an adolescent I was allowed to watch anything I wanted. Really, by the time I was 9 and had finished the children and teen section at my town's library she gave into the fact that "adult themes" were no longer something I would be avoiding. I did scary the beejebus out of myself reading 'The Shining' though. She comforted me that night and then the next day told me it served me right for reading a horror novel at night when I was supposed to be sleeping

The Shining wasn't that scary of a book to me for some reason. It did have some pretty creepy parts, though, most notably the hedge animals. I hated how they got rid of those in the movie.

Kids are different. My first was scared of most movies and even some things on Sesame Street, so I was careful with what she saw. My other child loved scary movies and video games, but I did limit him because his (4 years older) sister would be freaked out.

Yeah, I guess reading it as a little kid would be freaky. I didn't think about that for some reason. D'oh!

Topiary creeps me out to this day. They really should have included that in the movie, I thought it was far scarier than some of the scenes they did include. It's the only book that ever gave me nightmares, I think it was because I was nine when I read it. Horror novels were much more fun when I was a kid, it takes a lot for a horror novel to disturb me these days. Oddly, the most disturbing novel I've read lately was a YA book 'Living Dead Girl.' Hugely trigger heavy in terms of sexual abuse, it was one of those books that makes you uncomfortable and stays with you.
