Top Ten Creepiest Kids Movies

The Top Ten

1 Return to Oz


2 The Witches

I watched this movie as a kid. But believe it or not it didn't scare me. - nintendofan126

3 The Secret of NIMH
4 The Dark Crystal

I can see how this could scare kids from the 80s. There's a ton of death, and when I say a ton, I mean that pretty much everyone dies. The vulture lizard hybrid monster things could also scare kids a bunch. Jim Henson has a light imagination and a dark imagination. This came from his dark imagination. - RaccoonCartoon

5 The NeverEnding Story
6 Coraline

Real scary. There's so many dark secrets hidden in this movie which you don't notice the first time you watch it. That's what my sis liked about it. You notice something new each time you watch it. It's also a great movie to make theories about. - RaccoonCartoon

This movie scared me so much when I was a kid. - pandagirl

7 Labyrinth

It's very similar to The Dark Crystal, but that one is probably scarier. - RaccoonCartoon

8 Watership Down

Welcome to Britain, kid. Want to sit down and watch a movie about dead rabbits? - RaccoonCartoon

The visions Fivel had were just horrifying and terrified me as a kid

9 The Peanut Butter Solution
10 Little Monsters

Can't make a movie like this today.

Everything about it is cruel, execept for Rick Ducommun.

The Contenders

11 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory

So creepy it's on here twice!

For some reason, I was scared of it but didn't know why. (The new one as well)
It made me feel weird when I watched it, like it was a drug trip or something. - RaccoonCartoon

12 Dumbo

The drug scene with the elephants was freaky. - RaccoonCartoon

13 The Lion King

Not really creepy. The whole ''circle of life'' thing with the death would've probably scared kids, but this is the 19th century, where no one gives a crap. - RaccoonCartoon

14 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
15 Where the Wild Things Are

Ah, yes. A movie about giant monsters living in a forest. Lovely for kids. - RaccoonCartoon

16 Something Wicked This Way Comes
17 Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
18 Monster House

This scared me so much when I was 7. Jokingly, about 5 years later we decided to re watch it again. Me and my sis weren't really scared, but we were all thinking ''WHAT THE HELL!? '' and ''HOW DID KIDS WATCH THIS!? ". - RaccoonCartoon

19 The Nightmare Before Christmas
20 The Monster Squad
21 Hocus Pocus
22 Ernest Scared Stupid
23 The Black Cauldron
24 The Garbage Pail Kids Movie
25 The Watcher In the Woods
26 Pee-Wee's Big Adventure
27 Fantasia
28 The Brave Little Toaster
29 The Last Unicorn

You think it's a movie about a girly unicorn? Well, think again. It's.. Pretty.. Uh, odd... - RaccoonCartoon

30 Paranorman
31 Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
32 Mr. Horatio Knibbles
33 Foodfight!
34 Where the Dead Go to Die

Uh, this isn't a kids movie.

35 Son of the Mask
36 Inside Out

A troll obviously put this on here.

Man this movie gave me nightmares

37 Ringing Bell
38 Pinocchio
39 Dr. Seuss' The Cat In The Hat

Creepy charecters! - puglover2008

40 The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T

THIS should be at #1 more so than the others, this movie was my biggest nightmare as a kid, it still scares me now, it’s weird how someone like seuss would be associated with it!
