5 The Dark Knight

While it's a Batman movie this isn't the Batman most kids are accustomed to, its dark, violent and Heath Ledger's portrayal of the The Joker will give kids nightmares. - egnomac

The scary presence of the Joker, violent action scenes and some heavy subject matter may make this a superhero film that you may want to question showing your kids. - Mrveteran

You wanna know how I got these mental scars... I watched the dark knight at 3 years old

Saw this movie long ago. What's the problem? - zxm

How did this not get an R rating. - egnomac

These bunnies totally go mortal kombat on each other.

They should re-rate this R.

Kids need to see this. It teaches them that life isn't all honey and sprinkles that Disney says it is. - LordDovahkiin

I watched this movie, it is one of my favourites. - BeatlesFan1964

Love this movie.This contains intense violence,pervasive language,drug use,and strong sexual content as well as graphic nudity.Do not let kids watch this for the sake of their well being.

18 Debris Documentar

I voted to this because is more darkest and more disturbing than herny: portait of a serial killer, seriously, that movie is a crap

19 The Hangover

To be fair, no-one should see this lacklustre comedy unless you have never seen any other comedies before. - Mrveteran

Way too inappropriate for teens too
Has S**, Porn, AND Drugs

Hey kids, this is a great movie for you! (sarcasticly) - micahisthebest

Really wanna watch it! But my parents say it's too inappropriate, I still have watched Deadpool (Not too bad), Popstar (Almost PG13 without the limo and weed) and Fist Fight (Not bad) - TopTenListmaker

20 Saw

Why would you even show your kids a movie where people are forced to play a game of survival and if they loosed they're ripped, sliced, and killed in really brutal ways.

The fact that a little kid is in mortal danger is bad enough, but add to that extreme violence, a dark atmosphere and plenty of sinister moments means that this is one that is utterly inappropriate for kids. - Mrveteran

I'm not even allowed to watch it. Every time I hear the t.v saying it's going to come on I get chills.

I was not allowed to watch any saw movies - flaggy0666

21 The Angels' Melancholia
22 The Haunted World of El Superbeasto

This film has lots of adult humor and scary monsters.

I want to make a rant out of this movie.

This movie has lots of nudity in it. especially that one scene where velvet von black grows her breasts to the size of two basketballs.

23 Rosemary's Baby

It's a movie about a baby being possessed by satan.

25 Return to Oz

I sorta remember watching this a long time ago when I was little, and I had no idea of what the crap was going on. But when I watched AniMat's Top 10 Scariest Disney Moments, I was undeniably shocked. There were disembodied heads, Toto wasn't even in the movie, just a stupid chicken that could talk, both the Land of Oz and Emerald City became a hot mess, some idiotic new characters like Jack Pumpkinhead... and some other foolish folks whose names escape me now. Also, there was an evil Nome King, some crazy dudes on wheelers, and Dorothy was on the verge of getting SHOCK THERAPY! Who in the name of Victor Hugo puts that in a kids movie that supposed to be for kids?! I mean, what was Disney thinking about?!

Talk about not being in Kansas anymore. return to oz was nothing like the original 1939 film at all. this movie was dark. it had creepy monsters called wheelers, decapitated heads screaming, and even dorothy was almost going to take shock therapy. this was one hell of a creepy, creepy movie.

1985 Disney had not one thought about 1939 The Wizard Of Oz! People shouldn't attempt rip offs!

It seems awful! Everyone hates it. I've never seen it. I love the original.

26 Witness Protection
27 Pulp Fiction

As an 11 year old boy, I can honestly say this is my favorite movie of all time. - BeatlesFan1964

28 A Serbian Film

Nobody should sit through this "film" - PerfectImpulseX

29 Freddy Got Fingered
30 Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

Wow the times really do change. Back when I was a kid, this was a kid's movie, and I watched it when I was like 2 or 3 for the first time. I was born in 1999, just a testament to changing times. - RogerWatersfan1999

As 13 year old and even as a 6 year old watching it I know that wasn't true.

Kids will fear that their parents are abducted by aliens

31 A Clockwork Orange

This… is seriously #55. It's a masterpiece but not appropriate for kids at all. - jack2244

32 Pure S***

What’s with the name? Lol

33 Cannibal (2006)
34 Doogal

Dougal and the Blue Cat might be creepy. Buxton was the bad guy, the blue cat. *spoiler he redeems at the end according to the plot I read*

Kids should watch Dougal and the Blue Cat (1972) the original the classic.

A movie than the kids of 4 to 7 years don't liked, not is scary pr disturbing but is VERY VERY VERY CRAPY MOVIE

35 Drop Dead Fred

Oh god keep kids away from this like the plague this has to be close to being one of the worst movies of all time.

36 Wes Craven's New Nightmare
37 Deadpool

With him in Ultimate Spiderman, kids will want to check out this movie, its sequel, and the video game. Not a good sign. - Croy987

Do not under the age of 13 even deadpool warns you not too - ikerevievs

Some people actually took their kids to see it without seeing the r rating.

38 The Evil Dead
39 Pigs


40 Looney Tunes: Back In Action

Don't even show it to them. I'm being dead serious. Watch it for yourself and you'll see what I mean.

What do you mean it's looney tunes and I found a few scenes in the film and I think even a lot of kids will find funny I mean what as the world go into nowadays really looney tunes.

Don't even show it to them. I'm being dead serious. Watch the movie yourself and you'll see what I mean.

41 Friday the 13th

Definitely NOT! This movie shows the part in the beginning where the young, teen-aged girl gets killed! And in the first scene there's a dirty part.

42 Cry Baby Lane

It once came on teennick

43 Felidae
44 Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie

Of course not.

45 Norm of the North

It's a kids movie it's perfectly fine


Sorry If I Sounded Like An A$$, It's Just The Truth Is That Norm Of The North Is Horrible And That Kids Deserve MUCH Better

46 The Nut Job

What this is a kids movie. It should be not here. How can kids are not allowed to watch this movie.

Because It's Terrible And Its Jokes Are Nothing But Unessasary Fart And Burp Jokes And The Characters Are All Annoying Beyond Belief Except The Orange Squirrel.

47 The Human Centipede

This is just sick! Three innocent people get sewn together mouth to anus and forced to eat each other's feces. How can anyone like this?! This is definitely not something for children to see.

48 Norbit

Too many sex jokes and this movie is stupid as hell

Yeah, this movie was pretty messed up. Not gonna lie. : (

49 Inglourious Basterds

Watched this on a family movie night. - BeatlesFan1964

50 Sausage Party

This film is really gruesome. But OKAY 6/10 - AlphaQ

Kid: Let's watch this movie mummy! - micahisthebest

Dear Lord
The Ending Was So Messed Up On So Many Levels
