    every horror movie i saw is rated 18 so haw come 70% of them have
    children in them? where mostly the child is the main subject in
    the movie .

    is it fair to protect the other kids even from watching but subjecting the child
    in the movie to the main story ?

    some data came across me when making this post

    poltergeist girl died at age 10
    and Megan of the exorcist brock her back on that shacking bed
    others may have been effected by exposure to scary fantasy :devil

    I read something about this years ago. The gist of it was that these kids often don't know the entire context of the scene(s) they are shooting. Therefore they really don't know what's going on. The director say "yell and scream" or whatever and the kids do. That sort of thing.

    Yeah, that was part of my hunch. They only film certain scenes, some effects and stuff are added later, and they probably talk with psychologists or something to make sure they understand and aren't scarred.

    With a green screen you can put the most horrific things seemingly behind a kid and they will never see it.

    Why would a kid with 150 adults standing around be scared of anything?

    well Jennifer carpenter fainted out of fear while doing emily rose
    and has hallucination

    Carpenter, Jennifer (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    i dont belive they are not seeing what is going on at all i dont want to start giving examples

    F.E.A.R. - Alma Wade vs. M.D.Green - YouTube

    i c them when i close my eyes , who are they ? they say u want to kill me .
    u are telling me alma dose not realize what she is doing ? she is using her
    innocence to bring more fear even to the adults . using the child cause
    more horror because usually the adults tend to have a relaxed blind
    sided thoughts when seeing a child ,

    The Ring - Samara climbs up well - YouTube

    am sorry but i dont see where the curtains trick is here

    Ju-On: The Grudge Trailer - YouTube

    The Shining - Danny's Wheels - YouTube

    Silent Hill movie trailer - YouTube

    The Omen 1976 Trailer - YouTube

    'Case 39' Trailer HD - YouTube

    there is no end of it where the child is used to utilize his/her innocence
    to bring the horror element to the adult world .

    you are telling me those kids didnt watch the movies they made ?
    and the child in the grudge did not actually made a scarey seen ?
    man the lil guy looked like a demon

    anyway if u are not convinced by now then everyone have his opinion
    here is a little bonus

    Play The House 2, a FREE online game on Jay is Games

    10 or 12 it dosnt matter , half of the movie crew did not survive anyway
    they were referring to the screens as trans medium to demons

    quote

    and if you watch that filthy trance medium called television, shame on you! You cannot have a sanctified home if you are not sanctified!

    lol where the demons trying to hide something they found in that movie ? the poltergeist

    Obvioiusly you've never been on a film set. What you're seeing is simply the finished product.

    its ok on that point but there is another side to the story when using
    children as a passage to scare the adult .

    it just came cross my mind yesterday while i was watching the shinning
    for the 10s time its a great movie but when i saw that kid screaming
    again i noticed something . i said i guess they are using the child to scare
    me somehow because i wasnt scared of the others hehheheh

    i just changed the channel

    i believe there is a contrast here where its used against the adult
    its called the blind side .

    the adult looks to a child as a symbol of peace and innocence
    but there , suddenly the movie makes a demon out of him so you get
    that shock of horror

    its bad because the childhood should always be at those slandered
    and not to be mutilated even in movies

    now we see haw its used in the media to draw attention to great disasters
    its not fair to me i cant watch tv anymore everyday they show those children
    hungry killed and homeless . save us god for i can see the evil one with
    my bare eyes :devil
