    I think it is PG. I would stick to something with a G rating for an 8 year old's birthday party

    Most of the movies you've listed would be too scary for my 8.5 y/o DD and I'd be really unhappy with her being shown them at a party. I think if it's not G rated, you need to speak to the kids' parents beforehand at that age.
