Toilet fears-legitimate or conjecture?

The kids' great-aunt Wendy (how old does that make you feel, Wend?) and their cousins R and H bought the boys these outdoor Halloween games. They have been a hit.
I was preparing to purchase a Halloween movie to send to R & H for Halloween, when Brittany told me not to. True, rare is the time when Brittany tells me to stop, do I stop (even when it probably is in my best interest...), but this time I did. Here is the question I ask to each of you. Is Gremlins too scary for an 8 and 11 year old? I thought not, but Brittany said she was scared to use the toilet for a year afterwards. Any other potty-phobes?

yes, it's too scary and besides, it's a Christmas movie-don't you remember gizmo in the santa hat?!

F has a total Jack look on his face. Oh and K has that same little Halloween eye shirt.

I forgot all about the Gremlins! Man, did that post take me back in time. I cracked up about Brittany not being able to use the bathroom afterward! I feel those fears are legitimate...hilarious... but legitimate! What about Ghostbusters? Is that one scary? I remember it being unbelievably stupid but...was it scary?

THANK YOU! While I don't appreciate having my embarrassing childhood moments shared with the world, I do appreciate being justified :)

Don't you worry Brittany, those fears are justified. Hey, Jaime...Mike says he knows of a scary movie...according to him Steel Magnolias is terrifying (creep)
