Is Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse Scary for kids? What parents Need to Know

If you’re thinking of taking your kids to see Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, and looking for a spoiler-free parent review, don’t worry, I’ve got you. And details to help you decide if Spiderman Across the SpiderVerse is scary for kids you might want to bring.

To me, there’s nothing better than a movie where I’m laughing so hard my stomach hurts and I’m hearing my kids laughing beside me. So much of my enjoyment of movies comes from the experience of watching it with loved ones. Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse was the first movie in a long time where both my kids were on the edge of their seats alongside me. 

We all have different tastes and there are so few movies that our entire family enjoys and gives a 5-star rating in our movie tracker. This movie’s predecessor, Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse, has earned the highest average rating of any movie we’ve all seen together. Which is high praise and hard to top. Going into this sequel, I avoided most trailers, went in with high expectations and an open mind, and I am happy to say I was not disappointed.
