Kid’s movies are often sweet, heart-warming and just down right terrifying!


By Beth McConnell Kids movies are often sweet, heart-warming and just down right terrifying!

Here’s a list of moments that strike fear into everyones childhood.

10. The Hole (2009): The clown

The Hole (2009)

The Hole (2009)

This colourful guy could give Annabelle a run for her money at times. The film gained some controversy upon release, and deemed a little too scary for a PG-13 rating. Making a horror movie for kids can be a tricky business, but jeez!

Just LOOK at that thing!

mew mew

9. Toy Story 3 (2010) : The Furnace

Definitely the darkest of the franchise, we are to watch our heroes mistreated, locked away and faced with an awkward fiery fate.

Even Buzz was scared.

oh. oh.

8. Dumbo (1940): Pink Elephants

Think you’re having a bad trip? Oh Disney…

Bitch please. Bitch please.

7. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004): The Dementors

These floating, cloaked figures suck out your soul…

errrrrr errrrrr

… because kid’s love all that.

6. Return to Oz (1985): The Wheelers

Now these things are just creepy.

Nope Nope

They make flying monkeys seem so misunderstood.

no no no no no no

5. Minnie the Moocher (1932)

This eerie Betty Boop short teaches us that forests are bad.

run. run.

The hasenpfeffer no longer seems so awful.

4. Pinocchio (1940): The boys are donkeys

Now come on Disney, really?

Despite the animation being very well put-together in this transformation of terror, it certainly makes you want to rethink the annual trip to ‘Pleasure Island’.

Ahhhhh Ahhhhh

3. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971): Tunnel of WTF

Shortly after we are led into Mr Wonka’s whimsical candy utopia, this infamous scene just comes out of nowhere.

no way back no way back

…And is never addressed, explained or mentioned again. Thanks.


2. Fantasia (1940): Night on Bald Mountain

The penultimate scene in the Disney’s musical masterpiece is literally hell.

1. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

Last but not least…it has to be Snow White. In the first few minutes we are subjected to our heroine being chased by a knife-wielding huntsman and a plethora of horrific imagery in that creep-fest of a forest!

Oh yeah, and her

hello hello thunder of thunders thunder of thunders nope nope

Sleep well.

And these are the kid's films. And these are the kid’s films.
