It’s monster-movie season. And these days, that means more than just hardcore horror films aimed at adults. Increasingly, Hollywood’s offering pint-sized versions of monster-y fare for the younger set, too. And sometimes, our kids might just like what it has to offer. As parents, how should we respond? Are there healthy conversations about fear to be had after watching movies we might be tempted to dismiss?

This week, Paul Asay leads the Plugged In team in exactly that conversation, while Adam Holz interviews Christian actor David A.R. White (star of the God’s Not Dead franchise and the new Christian movie Nothing is Impossible).

So take a listen, and then tell us what you think about this week’s discussion. What do you think about monster movies aimed at kids? For that matter, are you a David A.R. White fan? What did you enjoy about our conversation with him? You can share your thoughts on Plugged In’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, or shoot us an email at [email protected]. We’d love to hear from you.
