Why are these children watching R rated horror movies?

This morning, I’ve got 6th and 7th graders comparing the merits of various horror movies such as The Ring 2, Wolf Creek, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  I guess it was common for kids this age to watch R rated horror movies when I was a kid, but I think movies are far more gruesome nowadays.

I saw Wolf Creek. It was good, and it was scary. It’s got some very gory moments. It’s not for 12-year-olds.

Yep, today’s movies have definitely gone TOO far. I’m not a fan of scary movies anyway, so i’m spared the nightmares that might result after watching one. Personally, i don’t think they should even be put out.
