Top Ten Scariest Kids Movies

Drbazinga
You know... for kids! My criteria is that the movie has to be rated PG or lower in order to count as a kids movie and also has to be advertised as a kids movie too. So prepare for the horrors of your past. The top ten SCARIEST "kids" movies.

The Top Ten

1 Poltergeist

This is NOT for kids at all. There is one scene where a guy's face gets peeled off. I'm not making this up!

How Is This a Kids Movie Anyway? It Was One Of The Scariest Films Ever Made!

Why on earth would a horror movie be for kids!?

2 Coraline

Awesome. I watched it when I was seven and I thought the other mother lived in a door in my garage that we never opened before.

Great movie. Just the tiniest bit creepy for young kids

I read the book and told my friend to read it but she said it was too scary

When I first watched it I didn't watch it again till I was 11 to 12.

3 Son of the Mask

Did they seriously market a sequel to a movie with guns and swearing for kids?

This movies is creepy, just watch the Nostalgia Critic's review of if

This is a horrible (literally) HORRIBLE MOVIE, not only is boring, also is very creepy

This is an awful movie and it's scary as hell.

Frankenweenie is too scary for kids to watch even scarier than Son of a Mask.

10 Who Framed Roger Rabbit

The true form of Judge Doom was very. With his red eyes and his high-pitched voice.

Even though it features the greatest cartoon characters, there's murder and a lot of inappropriate content.

I can understand rooms getting drunk and getting into life threatening situations and using guns. But when R.K. Maroon is killed so violently and it shows his dead body, oh, that gave me nightmares as a child.

16 Monster House

Not at all scary! With monster house, you can tell it's scary from just looking at the cover, but with the brave little toaster, you can't tell. Therefore, this movie is not scary at all because it's so predictable!

The owner of the house was creepy and I understand why our school didn't let us watch it.

I seen it before and it was scary! - Chaotixhero

This isn't even scary.

18 Watership Down

How could this not be here?

I watched this as a child and had to have someone go everywhere in fear of being attacked!

I'm pretty sure this is (or until recently was) the children's film with the most complaints from parents.

Horrifying film, DO NOT SHOW TO YOUR KIDS!

You'd think that it being about bunnies would make it a pretty innocent tale, right? Let me tell you, this is nothing like Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit! The rabbits are fighting for survival and tearing each other to shreds! Very bloody--had the misfortune of watching it when I was young and will never watch it again. :( The Black Rabbit spirit also scared the daylights out of me...

What's this doing on the list? It has no violence in it. Parents, I recommend this movie to your kids! It's adorable, lovable, and it has no inappropriate subject material! It's about rabbits, and the farmer digs up there home! So they must find the magical land of Rabbit city and find a new home! It's the best kids movie ever, your kids will learn kindness, honesty, and respectfulness for this glorious film! It's an excellent choice for kids 5 and under and they'll love it! Trust me on this one.

Have you watched the full movie yet? Are you sure that it doesn't have violence in it? If you meant the 1978 movie version then you can see many violent and bloody scenes in it. Maybe you must confuse it with the 1999 T.V. version that don't have much violent scenes as the movie version. - Nectaria

Let's see:
Blood visibly shown in broad daylight,
Freaky imagery in-between stills,
At least one violent death every 10 minutes,
and that lovely image of Woodwart whenever he is on screen.

19 The Neverending Story

I don't understand most of the movie. But what I did understand was pretty scary.

20 The Dark Crystal

I'm 19 and this movie still scares the living hell out of me.

Pretty dark and dirstrubing but still good through. P.S the creator of this movie also did Sesame Street and the muppets.
