Top 10 Darkest Kids Movies


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

17? This should be somewhere down in the top 10 list! It's the darkest Harry Potter movie of the entire series.

22 Batman: The Mask of Phantasm

This is definitely not a children-only film, but the fact that this is branded as a children's film is baffling. It is filled with murder (ONSCREEN) and obvious sexual jokes. It was a good movie, but I wouldn't show it to any little kids.

It's rated PG and that was back when those kind of movies actually meant something any movie that's PG today kid movies in particular means it's practically G.

23 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

This is not often considered a kids movie, but I still agree. - Extractinator04

24 Labyrinth
25 Disney's a Christmas Carol
26 Scooby-Doo On Zombie Island

Really Scooby doo, that most mean she's scared of the live action movies too.

Agreed my sister cried in this and she's 14

27 The Black Cauldron V 2 Comments
28 Alice in Wonderland

Tim Burton threw away the rulebook on this one, with dark scenery, awesome effects and a certain burtonesque tinge to all the evil characters - CrowdedChisel

Well in my opinion this version sucked it had lazy writing made all the characters uninteresting and I didn't find any thing imaginative.

Tim Burton gave his own twist on it, and I like it


29 The Brave Little Toaster

It may sound like a movie like Care Bears but it's not this movie actually pretty dark the clown is creepy.

This movie is so much darker than monster house! This movie has a suicidal A/C, a suicidal flower,some mice tried to pull Blanky into a mouse hole and then eat through him and get to his internal wiring and have the mice get electrocuted or start an electrical fire, they come across a jump scare forest, Lampy almost kills himself charging the battery,Kirby tries to eat his own cord,they almost die falling into quicksand, they get taken to a part shop where a blender gets murdered, there's a horribly scary song called it's a b movie, there's a mish mash that's a can opener, a lamp and a shaver,unkind cutting edge appliances that send our heroes to the junkyard and there's a second villain song called cutting edge, our heroes arrive at the junkyard and there's a third villain song called worthless, the bloodthirsty magnet tried to kill the master, toaster sacrificed himself and back in the jumpscare forest toaster has a dream about being tortured by an evil clown.

I don't get why would almost dying falling into quicksand is dark, I mean, I've seen it happen a good amount of times in kid shows. - tent2

30 The Polar Express

That scene with the cart of abandoned toys always creeped me out, - Turkeyasylum

31 Night at the Museum

I'll have you know that Night at the Museum is NOT a scary movie, unless you write your own story about it. You better take this off this list, or I will SLAP you SILLY!

This is a wonderful movie, and not dark. Not scary at all. Unless you are little, and scared of the T-rex. - TheWolfLover

32 Toy Story 3

The first two were so light you could fly in those. This was filled with an evil teddy bear, that smells like strawberries, which are red and what else is red? The story is about abandonment and prison. I watched this at school and I felt like I saw a gory animation.

Toy Story 2 ended quite well, why did they need to make another?

36 The Dark Crystal

This movie is dark and the fact that it was made by the same guy who did Sesame Street and the muppets Jim Henson was his name and I think the reason why he made this was because he didn't want all his films to be all bright and colorful or too happy and go lucky and I agree I think kids films need a little bit of a dark edge but not too much and don't listen to the guys who say kids can't handle darkness, well little kids who are like 5 maybe but kids above yeah I think some of them will be ok and the creator Jim Henson I think went on to do labyrinth that's also one of those old dark children films and the puppets in that film are just as disturbing as the puppets in this film or even creepier and it has the late David Bowie and yeah you should check it out it's a pretty good film it's also on this list oh yeah let me tell why this film is dark A the puppets are creepy and want to rule the world B one of human animatronics gets slaughtered but there isn't really any gore or anything ...more
