Since she was little my younger sister has freaked out about any violence towards animals, but had no qualms about the humans on screen getting murdered horribly. I get sympathy for other species, I'm just not sure I understand the lack of compassion for your own. It seems odd to me, but according to my husband one of the ways you tell if you're watching a horror movie or an action movie is whether the animals live. Action movies will go out of their way, no matter how high the human body count to make sure the pet on screen makes it out alive.
