This is how choosing a movie goes for Teressa

Hmmm, I want to watch something fun and comforting. Let's hit up what's on Netflix Kid's.

*scroll*

I haven't watched Anastasia in forever. That might be nice. Oh hey, I've never seen Disney's Hercules, and the Nostalgia Chick loves it, so maybe I'll watch that.

*scroll*

Hey, they even have Nightmare Before OMFG GREMLINS IS ON THERE WHY IS GREMLINS ON THE KID LIST HOLY FUCK I AM GONNA HAVE NIGHTMARES JUST FROM THE THUMBNAIL FUUUCK!!!!

*decide on Hercules*

I seriously need some James Wood's voice acting to wipe away the horror of fucking Stripe Gremlin popping up on my screen. WHY IS IT ON THE KIDS LIST?!!!

...Because the asshole who curates the Kids List was a kid when it came out, and remembers it fondly.

I was 10 y/o that summer and got heaps fewer willies from Gremlins than I did from E.T., albeit for reasons.

ETA: It's PG-13 on the basis of the microwave explosion alone, but it came out before the PG-13 rating was introduced. A bit of Google-fu suggests that it's one of the affirmed catalysts of the PG-13 rating.

Yeah. I'm pretty certain I saw it as a young kid at the cinema, so it must have had a PG rating when it was released.

And it gave me a fair few nightmares as I recall.
