The Top Ten

1 Tunnel of Hell - Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Basically, you see a bird getting killed, a kid eating live worms, etc. while Willy Wonka speaks creepily. - ethanmeinster

Awesome - BeatlesFan1964

How can this NOT be on the list?
They have jumpscares of messed up images. A snake slithering on someone's lips, a chicken getting its head cut off, and more! Wonka even sings the creepiest poem ever made for a kids movie. How is this rated G?

Beautiful!
A few minutes later,
HELL. This is too scary!

2 Edgar the Bug's True Form - Men In Black

As Agent K put it; "Imagine a giant cockroach with unlimited strength, a massive inferiority complex and a real short temper, tear-assing around Manhattan Island in a brand new Edgar suit. "

How is this a kids movie?

Edgar the Bug was practically a 700lb cockroach terrorizing New York. If that ain't a scary prospect than what is?

This man is practically an intergalactic, short tempered, 600lb cockroach alien.

3 Judge Doom - Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Remember me Eddie? When I killed Your BRother I talked JUST LIKE THIS!

Scary zoom up to his face, when he screamed

Terrifying. - BeatlesFan1964

4 Large Marge - Pee-wee Herman's Big Adventure

I remember when my brother and I were little. We were staying in a hotel (I'm a fifteen-year-old girl and he is twelve by the way) and we were watching this movie since we all loved it and I still do. Anyways, we were getting to the Large Marge part and as she was saying, "It looked like..." I could see my brother shaking his head "no" with a sad, scared look on his face. - RedTheGremlin

I kind of find it hilarious, it's like earthworm jim taking a humungous crap. - DapperPickle

It Justs Come Out of nowhere

Ha!

5 The Library Ghost - Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters is a kid movie? - shfydgi

6 Serleena's True Form - Men In Black 2
7 The Clown - Poltergiest

NOT a kids movie. I'm telling the truth. For real!

A 15 in the UK but a PG in America so that counts. - SuperheroSith

Uhhh... how is this even a kids movie?

Mom:Em you HAVE TO watch Poltergeist!
Me:Okay.
Me:*Watches Poltergeist 3 with family* laugh out loud that was funny. I think I can handle the first one. (Just saying I'm 11. )
Me:*Watches video =Top 10 Scariest Nostalgic Childhood moments= and sees clown scene*
Me:... *Cries* I don't WANNA WATCH POLTERGEIST ANYMORE - LpsDisneyTmntFreak

8 Boris the Animal - Men in Black 3

Boris the Animal didn't really scare me. He actually, kind of gets me thrilled, every time he talks.

Boris the animal was the freakiest thing I've ever seen! He was so gross with his spider and when is eyes rolled up!
When I was at the movie theatre I couldn't even eat my popcorn! I'm nine and I had nightmares!

9 Pleasure Island - Pinocchio

Why did nobody put this on here! Other ones on here are pretty scary but this is 😱😱😱

10 Child Catcher - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

I know right he's just a disturbing character.

This guy freaked me out as a kid!

Remeber kids, don't be around candy or strangers because they equal trouble.

The Contenders

11 Snake - Beetlejuice

Yeah pretty creepy but not as creepy as the child catcher.

A 15 in the UK but a PG in America so that counts. - SuperheroSith

12 The Spider - Coraline

I drew a picture of the Other Mother and my friend who loves this movie had nightmares from the picture and the movie.

One of the scariest movies I have seen to date. - 17nobrien

The original nightmare fuel, Coraline was actually the first movie to be rated PG in 2d and PG-13 in 3d. This movie is so macabre it still inspires unrest today. I saw it when I was seven, and I was never the same.

It was absolutely terrifying when I was in the 5th grade. 😱

24 The Room of Heads - Return to Oz
25 Hellfire - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Quick shutout to the Banshee, this is just... It's moreso now than then, but this scene always, for no reason scared me as a kid.

26 The Death of Judge Claude Frollo - Hunchback of Notre Dame

It gave both me and my sister nightmares. The gargoyle is representing God pulling Frollo into hell. IN A DISNEY MOVIE. God that is scary. In a Disney movie no less.

27 Pink Elephants - Dumbo

I love watching this with little kids. Because they don't know whether to be scared or gleeful. DUMBO IS DRUNK.

28 Banshee - Darby O' Gill
29 Wicked Witch of the West - Wizard of Oz

31 Evil Queen's Transformation - Snow White
32 The Mysterious Stranger Murdering the Clay People - The Adventures of Mark Twain
33 Barracuda - Finding Nemo
34 The Foot - Diary of a Wimpy Kid

It was kinda funny too - Chaotixhero

It was replaced by The Muddy Hand in The Book.

35 Crazy Bruce - Finding Nemo

Actually he had black eyes but that was pretty close.

The reason why it is scary is because he had RED EYES! And he does the HERES joney from the shining. When I saw it. It scard me to death

36 The Forest Fire - Bambi
37 Clayton hangs himself - Tarzan

When you think about it, it's pretty violent

38 Bill Sikes murdering Nancy near London Bridge - Oliver!

God was this scene dark and intense and besides why is Nancy even with him who hell would wanna be around this guy he's creepy as hell.

Quite horrific given that Oliver! Is essentially a "Cockney Knees Up" musical.

Even his dog Bullseye was scared of him when he murdered Nancy.

Bill was the true menace of Oliver! Fagin was just a harmless hammy charlatan and Mr Bumble was just an operatic pantomime villain.

39 Mr Bumble's bellowing of the word "More!" - Oliver!

A scrawney timid little orphan being shouted at by a full grown 400lb+ beadle with an operatic voice. And you think some cartoon queen uglifying herself is more frightening?

Harry Secombe did it in such loud bellowing.

Oliver: Please sir, I want some more.
Mr Bumble: What!
Oliver: Please sir, I want some... more?
Mr Bumble: MOORE!

Then look at the fright in Oliver's face before he drops his bowl.

40 Bill Sikes threatening Fagin - Oliver!

Bill Sikes was the true villain of Oliver! Mr Bumble was just a pantomime bully whilst Fagin was just a harmless charlatan.

Oliver Reed is to some still the most terrifying incarnation of Bill Sikes.

Bill Sikes: Have you ever heard the sound that a chicken makes when it's-a-wringling 'round it's neck?
Fagin: (while being strangled) Can't say I have...
Bill Sikes: They squawks Fagin. They squawks.

Oliver Reed was a true menace as Bill Sikes. Especially when you put him next to Ron Moody's charlatanesque Fagin and Harry Secombe's panto bully routine as Mr Bumble.

41 The Hell Sequence - All Dogs Go To Heaven
42 Littlefoot's mother gets attacked and killed by Sharptooth - The Land Before Time

Actually I always laughed at that part. If I were to pick something that would be scary I'd say it would be seeing Vigo with the baby knowing his intentions. He was a scary character anyway - Johnnyt800

44 The Wheelers - Return to Oz
45 Talking About Sewing Buttons Onto Eyes - Coraline
46 The Firefighter Clowns - The Brave Little Toaster
