10 Creepiest Kids Movies 10) Raggedy Ann and Andy: A Musical Adventure
A lot of people think that the famous alcohol hallucination scene from Dumbo is too intense
for kids. Personally, I’m just jealous: I’ve spent years necking hard liquor and
the closest I’ve even come to hallucination was briefly dreaming my wife took me back. Regardless, if the dumbo trip scene was too
much for you: then this film is gonna freak you out. On a quest to save their friend from pirates,
Ann and Andy travel to purgatory. In doing so, they journey through a series of surreal
worlds and meet creepy character after creepy character. My favourite: Sir Leonard Looney, a high-pitched
trash clown who tries to trap Ann and Andy in LooneyLand. Why? Just so he can play practical
jokes on them for eternity. THAT’S TORTURE Well, that and make eyebrows at them. To be fair, this film is visually stunning.
It mixes up animation and art styles so fast that one moment you’re in a black and white
line drawing. And the next you’re seeing “The King” introduced in a way Soviet
propaganda films would call overblown. If you like weird, LSD-infused cartoons, check
it out. If you’re a child: don’t. 9) The Adventures of Mark Twain
Mark Twain was an American writer, humorist, and lecturer. One thing he wasn’t, is a
claymation airship pilot going on adventures with his own fictional creations. That’s except for in the world of The Adventures
of Mark Twain. This 1985 family film takes a trick from Vonnegut , and has it’s author
start messing around in the lives of his own characters. All presented in a claymation style that’s
constantly slightly off putting, Twain takes Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn into all sorts of
dark places. In one particularly uncomfortable scene they
meet the Devil himself, represented for some reason by a cigar-smoking theatre mask. Satan creates a castle full of animate clay
characters for the kids to play with. Yes, clay figures playing with clay figures. Try
not to worry about it. Anyway, the small clay figures start fighting
over a cow, leading Maskboi to rain thunder and death down upon them. We even get to see
the widow clay figures grieving. At least until they’re sucked down into oblivion. So it goes. This was for CHILDREN. 8) The Plague Dogs
If you want a plot synopsis of The Plague Dogs, watch that neck breaking scene from
I Am Legend on a loop for two hours. Made by the messed up creatives behind rabbit
snuff film Watership Down, this movie is actually even darker than their famous creation. Hell, the opening scene is a DOG DROWNING. Yeah, that’s how they open the movie. There’s
even a close-up shot of it’s lifeless eyes. Okay, technically: the dog does survive that
scene. But still… The premise of this movie is that two dogs
escape from a nightmarish animal testing facility. But the testers were planning to inject them
with the Bubonic Plague, and mistakenly think they might have already done it. So they start
hunting down the dogs to stop a pandemic. The poster promises “The adventure of a
lifetime” And it certainly is: along the way the dogs engage in all sorts of wacky
hijinks. Like eating the body of a person to avoid starvation. The film only get darker, ending with the
dogs trapped in the sea and their would-be captors on the shore. The dogs decide to keep
swimming, disappearing into the fog and, most likely, drowning out in the waters. I, I. I think I need to go lie down. 7) The Dark Crystal
You probably remember Jim Henson as the puppeteer who brought us The Muppets. And while The Muppet Show often had an adult
edge, it rarely got super dark. I mean they adapted Christmas Carol and Treasure Island,
but they never remade Wallender with Swedish Chef, or put Fozzy Bear in Requiem For A Dream. The Dark Crystal is different. This 1982 dark
puppet adventure, I can’t believe I just said “dark puppet adventure”, features
freaky and disturbing imagery from the outset. Particularly nightmarish are the rotting,
vulture-like creatures scattered throughout the movie’s world. Using puppets rather
than special effects makes these monsters feel all the more real. The film proved popular, and Netflix is even
making a reboot TV series based on the property. Still, look at those things. It’s not for
the faint-hearted. Now, excuse I’m going back to pitching harrowing
Muppet movies. Waiting For Gonzo. The Rowlf In The Striped Pyjamas. Kermit McCarthy’s
The Toad. 6) Return To Oz
The original Wizard of Oz film can be a pretty disturbing watch. And not just if you know
the messed up stuff the dwarves were getting up to behind the scenes. But its 1985 sequel took the dark, disturbing
imagery, and turned it up to 11. At the film’s start, Dorothy has to be rescued
from electro-shock therapy. Yep, that magical adventure you shared with sweet little Dorothy
led to everyone thinking she’s a few Munchkins short of a Lollipop Guild. Thank God they
decided to free her, and didn’t take The One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest option of
having the Tin Man smother her with a pillow. As you may have guessed, the heroes return
to Oz. But the visuals just get creepier from there. I don’t want to spoil too much, but
some moments that stand out include a woman without a head who collects heads, dreadlocked
monster guards, and Groot’s evil cousin. I’d rather not follow that yellow brick
road, if it’s all the same with you… 5) All Dogs Go To Heaven
Hey kids, Fun Fact: did you know one day your beloved pet dog will die?! Yes, it’s another beloved family film about
dogs dying. Okay, to be fair “All Dogs Go To Heaven”
is mainly about a dog called Charlie escaping Heaven so he can come back to life and say
goodbye to his owner. It’s fairly wholesome, with lots of nice messages about sacrifice,
loyalty and friendship. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t also feature some absolutely
terrifying imagery. Perhaps the most memorably messed up scene
is the one where Charlie imagines Dog Hell. Yeah, turns out not all dogs go to Heaven.
There’s a Dog Hell. And it’s full of lava, skeleton boatmen and nightmarish dragon monsters.
There’s literally a moment in the scene where Charlie is desperately scrambling away
from lava while demons chew his panic-stricken face. This is a good movie. But be warned, you may
have to pay for counselling afterwards. 4) Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory This film is a classic. A heartwarming tale
about orange dwarf slavery, unsafe working conditions and profiting from obesity. But there is one famous scene in which the
1964 movie decides to take a detour from “slightly dark but pleasant” to “full on nightmare
mode” Willy Wonka, played excellently by the inimitable
Gene Wilder, always has a bit of an edge. But after introducing Charlie and the terrible
spoilt kids to the beautiful side of his magical factory, he takes them on a boat ride through
a tunnel. Then: this happens: The scene has been much parodied and referenced
since, including in Thor Ragnarok. But the original still holds up as disturbing and
weird, not least because it comes out of absolutely nowhere. Apparently it was so unpleasant and scary
to film that many of the actors were terrified throughout the shoot. Those reactions you
see are largely the genuine horror the actors were feeling. 3) The Witches
From one Roald Dahl movie adaptations to another. Films based on Dahl’s works can end up pretty
creepy. Just look at Matilda and the excessive number of shots in which someone tries to
bury their face in the camera. But this film isn’t just made uncomfortable
by the wide angle lense. It’s the makeup that elevates this movie
into pee your pants territory. Set in a small town, the plot follows a cast
of children trying to uncover a plot by witches to replace local woman and kill their offspring.
And the movie doesn’t shy away from showing just how ugly and disturbing these witches
are. In one memorable scene, the witches reveal
their true identities in a church. The leader in particular looks remarkably gnarled and
rotten. Enjoy THAT living in your subconscious for the rest of your life, kids! Clearly, audiences weren’t enamored to this
darkness. Though critics raved about the film, it did poorly at the Box Office. For what
it’s worth, Roald Dahl also hated the movie, although not because it might ruin children
for life. No, he was angered because the director changed the film’s ending from the book’s. 2) The Garbage Pail Kids Movie
There’s only really one word to accurately describe this movie: ugly. Based on the, somehow, popular trading cards
of the same name: The Garbage Pail Kids Movie attempted to bring
the nasty look of the cards to the big screen. And boy did they? The hardest part of this
movie is actually choosing which Garbage Pail kid is the most unsettling to look at. The
acne-encrusted Nat Nerd? The racially insensitive Windy Winston? Or Foul Phil, the nightmare
baby they should use to sell birth control? To be fair, the film’s characters are intentionally
disgusting. But that doesn’t mean that watching isn’t a nauseating experience. I mean look
at water-head Fonz here. I can’t not imagine him creeping up the bottom of my bed now. Fittingly, the movie was garbage. It was a
box office bomb, although it did just about make its money back. What’s more, it holds
exactly 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, something even Adam Sandler hasn’t achieved. 1. Milk Money A lot of the entries on this list have earned
their place on the list with their harrowing imagery. And I mean harrowing. I think The
Plague Dogs broke me. My now ruined psyche aside, this next movie
is here not because of its look. In fact, it’s shot like any other mid-90s romantic
comedy. No, the reason it’s in the video is because
of its deeply, deeply uncomfortable premise. Three 11 year old boys feel they’re unable
to compete with their girl classmates in “The Battle of the sexes”. But they decide that
seeing a naked woman would bolster their confidence. So, these children to go into the city to
hire a prostitute. Yeah, this film straight up has a bunch of
kids hiring a grown woman to bare all for them. The film even goes so far as to let
them see her topless. Don’t worry. Because this is a movie you’re
allowed to watch without joining a register, the kids don’t take things any further and
actually get to spend their “Milk Money” No instead the hooker, played by Melanie Griffith,
starts dating the dad of one of the kids. And it just becomes a standard RomCom from
there on. Well, as close to a standard RomCom as it can be for a movie that uses kids hiring
a hooker as a plotpoint. ”

  1. All dogs go to heaven gave me plenty more feels rather than frightened me, especially the seconded one (with the little boy doing magic tricks, is that the second??)

  2. Really these Americans. The moment something happens they cover their eyes. It's a wonder anything gets through the censorship

  3. When you said Milk Money i thought you were talking about the 2004 Hentai by the same name in English translation. In this Original animation, a woman was wetnurse of a boy who eloped with him and had sexual intercourse. Upon discovery, they boy's mother fired the wetnurse and this affected the boy psychologically. 10 years later he met her again as a college student but it turns out the wetnurse has a daughter around the same age as him who he later gets involved with sexually while banging the mother of the girl. When the mother find out about the relationship between her daughter and the boy, she locks him up in a dungeon like room and things get super kinky from there until most of the main cast dies from either getting tortured or murdered by the former wetnurse.

  4. Technically speaking The Dark Crystal was not intended for little kids. Even Jim Henson said The Dark Crystal is intended for young adults and adults. Who is never intended for 10 and under.

  5. I saw most of these when I was little, kids movies used to be a lot more daring.
    Now they kinda look dumbed down by comparison

  6. it's hillarious how kids today are such pussies compared to when i was a kid. i watched all of these movies and never got bothered.

  7. So no “Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland”? I’m shocked my parents let me and my sister watch that as kids. It still creeps me out nearly 30 years later.
