What Movie Did You Constantly Watch As A Kid That Was NOT Kid-Friendly?

I posed this very question to the Overlords and here are our contributions:


The Color Purple, Lethal Weapon, Little Shop of Horrors, Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Howard the Duck.


Lethal Weapon. Terminator. Dirty Harry. Stripes.


Beastmaster. Die Hard. Jaws. Lethal Weapon. Trading Places.


Poltergeist, Nightmare on Elm Street sagas and The Secret of Nimh.


European Vacation, Meatballs, Irreconcilable Differences.


I watched Full Metal Jacket like a dozen times as a very small child. Like 6 years old. Which is fucked up for a few reasons. Except, as I discovered later, my parents for some reason felt the only scenes in that movie appropriate for a small child were the ones at boot camp. So I watched up until Vincent D’Onofrio murderized the fuck out of R. Lee Ermey and himself, at which point my parents would shut it off, and send me to bed. I was in college before I saw anything after what turned out to be the first 15 minutes of the movie.

Damn, Emily’s parents. At any rate, what do you have, kids?
