yes i'd love to know that too!
Izzy is still happily watching it, it does encourage emotion in her, not fear of folk in make-up (years of Dr Who & Halloween have put paid to that) ..however she does feel empathy towards the characters & their losses sustained in attacks (& in general at the continuing storyline), she comes across & states this reminds me of "the old man" our old dog who we put down prior to christmas, (with Izzy present as he was a family member) ..& has a cuddle / sit on my lap.
I'm also wondering why i've seen no cats, they'd be fast to go feral & run like heck with those not overly fast moving zombies around.
Anyone feel it's wrong to allow a child of 7 to watch this with her parents?
I'd be keen to hear, (sic), your comments, whilst I know there are age suggestions based on violence gore & language, she's a very engaged child with whom we spend A LOT of time explaining history, science et al, real life, war, death, WW2 death camps, politics, police, etc
She's not having nightmares, as she understands perfectly well that the actors wash the fake blood off & drive home, she's also au-fait with a gent who is a multiple amputee actor for this sort of thing & has a good idea of the prosthetics involved, computer digitalized effects etc.
Without blowing any trumpets, I do think her attitude reflects her upbringing in terms of parental guidance, wish we had more of it to enable better society.
So much squeamishness & fears are based on a child's reactions through observing & learning directly from parents, ..& therefore potential problems without having realistic discussions as to why something provokes a certain response / attitude.
No, i'm not back.
