The Top Ten

1 Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

I'm Mary Poppins Y'all

It's serial killer stuff so don't show your kids.

2 Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

This movie is okay for 10 and up. Doesn't deserve 2 - TopTenListmaker

3 Bruno

There's one scene where they show a certain body part moving around in circulation nothing kids should be exposed to. - egnomac

Foul language, sex scenes and a scene with a talking penis spinning around. Need I say any more? - Mrveteran

4 Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

No it's not scary! I was not scared at all! I always watch this at my dads all the time! I like it kids can watch it! ( Counts me! )

I saw this movie when I was young it's not that bad - PatrickStar

Trust me, you'll die of boredom (and so will your kid.) - Navylexi

Not bad at all. Stupid parents... - PizzaGuy

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

The heath ledger joker would probably be too scary for younger kids.

The Book is fake.

This movie is very disturbing!

16 American Psycho

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

The deaths were so realistic, the filmmakers were accused of actually murdering the people who die. - DieGedankenSindFrei

20 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

21 The Garbage Pail Kids Movie
22 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.

To gross for them too see - BigBrotherSucks

23 James and the Giant Peach
24 The Angels' Melancholia
25 Foodfight!

Nobody should ever watch this movie it’s the worst movie ever it’s so inappropriate and ugly and dumb what about the scene where that guy got hit in the head nearly decapitated no kid should ever be influenced by that kind of bad behavior in fact no one should be influenced by it either.

I would argue but the innuendoes and animations should make it R - TopTenListmaker

26 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.

Michael myers also makes a cameo in this movie. that guy will frighten your kids.

27 Rosemary's Baby

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

Doesn't rosemary get raped by satan in one part of the movie?

28 Africa Addio
29 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.

30 Witness Protection
31 A Serbian Film

Kids would need to have therapy after watching this film

Nobody should sit through this "film" - PerfectImpulseX

32 Pulp Fiction

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

33 Deadpool

Kids would be turned into potty-mouths even a baby would say a very first bad world after seeing the the R rated one

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

I mean “first word”

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

34 Pure S***

You can't say the (real) name without swearing. - myusernameisthis

What’s with the name? Lol

35 Cannibal (2006)
36 Coraline

Look whoever made this list thinks kids can't handle darkness which is ridiculous because kids have suffered through stuff like parent dirvoce or one of their parents or silbings die or something like that but don't get me wrong I'm not saying we should sacr kids for life but at least teach them that the world isn't just a happy go lucky place and life isn't just fun and games and that's why I like 70s 80s and early 90s kids movies better because they went a little dark not extremely dark like 100% but aleast teach them to be brave and that fear is not healthy all the time and don't treat them like these little idiots that can't do anything or handle anything and kids movies nowadays take advantage of that and I liked coraline I thought it took a dark step for a kids movie nowadays and the animation is gorgeous and if I ever have kids I will show it to them until their like 8 or 9 or something like that and yeah like I said before don't listen to those people who think kids can't ...more

Although a kids movie it is scary! The weird button eyes and atmosphere was enough for me and it gave all 3 of my kids nightmares forever they were ages 5,6,10 so if it's not to late don't let your kids watch!

37 Freddy Got Fingered
38 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.

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

39 A Clockwork Orange

It's not that bad. Parents should watch it with their kids and skip the rape scenes and the treatment scenes. - X_Trickshots_X123

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 Felidae
42 Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie

Of course not.

43 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

44 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.

No kid should ever have to see this movie it's one of the worst films I've ever seen for so many reasons it's mean spirited it's annoying as hell its stupid it's depressing and it's just this bad feeling you have watching the whole film and the main character here is Insane any normal person would put her in a mental hospital I mean what kind of human being would think a person like Fred up and Fred's is just plain annoying the character is obviously trying to cash in with all the other fast supernatural talkers in films like beetlejuice from beetlejuice and Maurice from little monsters and the addilan genine and such but Fred almost feels nothing like those guys at least those guys were a little charming and funny at times but this guy you just don't like this guy you just feel like you wanna punch him in the face and another thing I don't like about this movie is the characters are unlikeable especially the mother she was such a bitch and yeah all the other characters are nuts their ...more

45 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.

46 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.

47 Wes Craven's New Nightmare
48 The Evil Dead
49 Pigs


50 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.
