Nope, you are correct. In fact I believe it's PG-13.
My first was Halloween II, my mom took me, and I think I was 13 or 14 at the time. I had seen Halloween on HBO and couldn't wait to see the sequel, far too young to get to the mall theatre without detection. While my mom hates horror movies today, I can recall her loving and jumping every minute of it
My first was Ghost Story by John Irvin, based on the book by Peter Straub. Scared me to death, but it really doesn't work now. Still like it, though.
You guys are right it was pg. I could have swore it was R. Guess I'll have to rethink this.
My first R movie (at the theater) was Terminator.
I also snuck into some other cannibal/zombie movie around the same time. It wasn't rated X, but it said in big red letters "NO ONE UNDER 17 ADMITTED, PERIOD!" I thought it was Dawn Of The Dead or Zombie, but I don't think it was as I remember a scene from the end that I haven't seen since.
There was a guy and girl who both "survived", and one of them was sitting on a bench in a mall or park. The other came up and put their arm around them, then it was revealed that the one sitting was a zombie and took a bite out of the other, then the credits rolled. What was that?
Sounds like HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD to me.
The theatres where I grew up almost never got R rated movies let alone R rated horror movies. I believe my first R rated theatrical horror movie was A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child when I was 14.
For non-horror it was Police Academy
I gotta go with The Shining.
I think I had seen a couple of R-rated non-horror movies before that. Don't know why, but I remember seeing Semi-Tough (a lame Burt Reynolds football/new age movie).
My dad didn't like taking me to horror flicks, so then I just started hanging outside the theater, to walk in with groups of people seeing the movie. Remember, it says you have to be accompanied by an adult. Nowhere does it say you have to know them. Did that for The Final Conflict, and Halloween 2 I think. After that, I just walked in. No one ever checked. Only time I got hassled a little was for the re-release of Andy Warhol's Frankenstein.
You're fucking joking right?
I'm betting bigdaddyhorse is talking about Don't Go Near the Park. If that's it I remember it being an extremely low budget flick with a very small role for the at the time young, Linnea Quiggly. I saw that on a double-bill with the excellent and soon to be released on DVD, Evilspeak.
I honestly don't remember what the first R rated film I saw in theaters was. It might have been Bride of Chucky, but I'm not positive about that.
That sounds like I should check it out, but the title doesn't sound right. I think Hell of the Living Dead sounds more like it, esp. since I thought it was one of the Dead movies. I'll have to try both just to see though.
Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (I was 15 at the time and they didn't ask for ID at the Drive-In - Lucky me).
much like bwana, i have no clue what the first R rated movie i saw was... not many films get an R rating here.. most are M (now MA15+)..
first movie i remember seeing alone that was remotely gorey was Freddy's Dead (the 3d one) because no one wanted to see it with me..
Silence of the Lambs. I was 17 and I got my mom to buy me a ticket since they wanted to see ID!
My parents took me to see THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN when I was 4 or 5 in either '78 or '79. On the off chance that movie wasn't 'R' (it should be if it wasn't, it's gory enough!) then it would have to be a drive-in double feature of THE FOG/PHANTASM back in 1980. When I was a kid, nobody who worked at the movies worried much about corrupting minors. All my parents had to do was go to the ticket counter and give their consent and they'd let me and my friends in. Because times were different, I was able to catch a lot of classics without adult supervision before I even hit puberty.
It took me a while but I finally figured it out. It had to be Halloween 4:The Return of Michael Myers in 1988. I remember my older sister being late in picking us up and driving like a maniac to make it to the theatre in time.
I think it was either Child's Play or Pet Sematary. I thought Child's Play was funny but Pet Sematary was scary as hell. The idea that people and animals could come back to live by burying them in the Indian burial ground was bad enough but this was also the first time I had ever been exposed to the grusome effects of Spinal Menengitis. I will never forget how that woman looked in the bed. Truly frightening.
well the first R movie i saw was either speed or true lies. and i cant remember the first one i saw in theaters so i guess it wasnt very memoriable
The Faculty was my first horror movie to see in theaters... I think it's R rated.
