    Does anyone rememeber the films that came out when they were a kid and were too young to be allowed to watch? I mean the ones that existed in rumours in the playground, maybe they had songs everyone sang?

    Do you remember when you actually got to see them?

    The ones I remeber like that were Jaws, Greece, Saturday Night Fever, The Excorcist and Omen.

    Oh and I was really chuffed when I went to the roller disco and they played frankie goes to hollywood and 'relax' and they showed the video on the big screen. I was too scared to tell my Mum and Dad i'd seen it incase they didn't let me go to the roller disco again!!! :)

    I wasnt allowed to watch ANYTHING either, very protective Dad. The one that sticks out most in my mind is The Dark Crystal :rotfl:

    Me too - but my parents weren't big on supervision so I watched it religiously anyway!!

    I was disappointed when I first saw Jaws though, I imagined something sort of less.... how can I put it? Wubbery...?

    my mum is a bit of a TV addict and there was very little I was not "allowed" to watch... really I wasn't allowed to watch something only when my mum wanted to watch something on another channel... but eventually all the kids got TV's in their room so we could just watch what we want.

    I wasn't allowed to watch Nightmare on Elm Street... but I did anyway... wished I hadn't cos it gave me loads of nightmares... but I was allowed to watch amyetiville (sp?) horror... because my mum said it was based on a true story :shock: This is why I don't watch TV much anymore.. :rotfl:

    Personally I am dead against it.. Tia can't have a TV in her room and has loads of things that I tell her are inappropriate... but she goes to my mums house and is in my sister's bedroom watching Bones and Will and Grace.. :shock: :shock: :shock: I only find out when she comes home... :shock: :shock: :shock:

    Mum wouldnt let me watch chucky but i did anyway, back years ago you could turn the contrast down on the telly, so i did on the telly in m y bedroom when she came in luckily she didnt notice...

    I wasnt allowed to watch children of the corn... I could see why as ever since i sneaked a watch i wish i hadnt' had the worst nightmares...

    Theres a reason parents dont let kids watch things...
