In brief: Why?
I don't think scary movies are of any good whatsoever. More and more people come with complaints of nightmares, insomnia and phobias as a result of exposure to scary movies.
Remember, it is not just you now, it is also your baby is exposed to what you are exposed. He/she doesn't need excessive epinephrine. If you were not you little kids watch them, why would you do that to your fetus?
