    Default Movies for 13-14 year olds

    My school is having a camp out and unfortunately, it is my job to pick out the movies for the night. Normally, if this was another situation, I wouldn't have minded. But, being this a school, I have to choose so called "appropriate" movies. I myself am 13 and I find this bull****. I surveyed my some kids and they responded with their desirable genre to be horror. This is quite aggravating since it is quite difficult to find a PG-13 horror movie. This is where you guys step in. I am not a die hard movie fanatic so I won't be familiar with all of the flicks you suggest. I want some good PG horror films, if there happens to be none around- you seldom not fear. I would also appreciate it if you provided me with any substantial comedy movies.
    Criteria-
    No sexual references/ scenes should be exposed (a little kissing will be fine.)
    No profane language.
    No gory or extremely violent images.
    It can't be too historical (They complain about that as well, how inadequate.)

    After having mentioned all this, I most probably sound like a d***. But unfortunately this is what happens when you are surrounded by a bunch of misinformed Arab kids.
    I would really appreciate it if anyone has ideas

    I almost 100% definitely misses the bill for "horror film", but I do have to recommend Monsters Vs. Aliens.

    I watched it on Christmas Day and, although I am 17, I laughed my arse off at it. I don't find films funny, but I did laugh at that. I'd rather watch that over the likes of the Hangover any day.

    Monsters Vs Aliens is amazing, a rare hit from Dreamworks.

    Forget about horror flicks (they are so 80s)
    Any film with Jackie Chan should keep you and your mates entertained

    The sound of music... if I should know these kids any better, they would slap me in the face if I screened that lol. Personally, I was thinking some Clint Eastwood would do them good, but unfortunately all his movies are violent.
