Top Ten Scariest Kids Movies

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 Coraline Coraline Product Image

Coraline is so funny because the little boy is hilarious but I'm scared of Coraline's Other Mother. She freaks me out...I don't like it. But it's funny.

This movie scared me. The book is very chilling I do not know why they made it into a kids movie that is meant to be watched with the family. It’s scary. The other mother wants to make coralline another puppet of hers and will do it by any means necessary.

The Beldum's true form is actually really scary for some people. It after all is a horror movie. The movie itself is awesome.

Laika themself makes really scary films and this is the scariest yet.
1. Coraline (The scariest. The Beldum herself looks very scary to everyone who watches, her look and "The Other Mother" which is her alias, as a doll is very scary, the beginning scene where she grabs a random doll and remodels it into a look a like Coraline to what happens to her at the end, all those scenes are very scary. Coraline itself is a horror movie, the scariest horror movie for kids.)

2. Kubo and the Two Strings (Raiden the Moon King itself is scary for little kids, it gets really scary about those 2 wicked aunts and plus, when the Moon King himself turns into a monster, that freaks people out)

3. ParaNorman (Aggie Penderghast's story line was a scary one, her getting executed, and then she has this: She becomes immortal by possessing the power of a wraith ...more

GREAT MOVIE, very well done, the animation is incredible, The characters are really thought out, but the best thing about this movie is how suspensful it is, and how many un solved things are about and how many things are to be theorized on!

2 Return to Oz Return to Oz Product Image

It's about a woman who wants to add a little girl's head to her severed head collection. 'enough said, right? I still get nightmares from this almost 35 years later.

Disney's scariest movie ever from wheelers, to disembodied heads, to electroshock therapy this movie is messed up.

The Wheelers were scary

Wheelers are probally the scariest thing ever!

3 Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Product Image

Why this movie on twice this movie is bogus and hopeless this should be number 48
and the Oompa Loompas song is to same theme the new one is a lot better because it has
different music and lyrics of the song than the old one.

I watched this when I was younger and it was a bit scary at times.

He almost murders children, there are jumpscares, and he's eerie! This is just too scary!

Watch the psychedelic boat trip and TELL ME that wasn't scary.

4 The Dark Crystal The Dark Crystal Product Image

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

It's been 30 years since I've seen it and some of the scenes still pop in my head D=

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

5 The Secret of NIMH The Secret of NIMH Product Image

This movie scared the hell out of me when I was young! I rated G my pants! Whoever rated this movie G should be sued! NOT A KIDS MOVIE!

What? I watched this movie as a kid, and it's not scary at all.

6 Pee-Wee's Big Adventure Pee-Wee's Big Adventure Product Image

I remember when Large Marge was about to show up and my brother and I were little. As Large Marge was saying, "And it looked like..." I could see my brother shaking his head no with a terrified look on his face.

Pee wee needs to be in a mental hospital.

Yes, I remember Large Marge too.

Tell em large Marge sent ya!

7 The Garbage Pail Kids Movie The Garbage Pail Kids Movie Product Image

Uhhh it's terrifying and a bad movie that's just great

8 The Witches The Witches Product Image

This is really good movie but I should warn you that you have to be older than 10
years old to watch this movie there is one scene that will scare the kids that will be
the mask scene of the grand high witch I freaked out when I saw this when I was 8 years old. The movie is way better than the book they don't have the same characters from
the movie.

I love this one but it's terrifying. It's scarier than paranormal activity ( I do like paranormal activity though)

9 Son of the Mask Son of the Mask Product Image

Otis as the Mask it awesome, but movie is creepy. Just watch Gremlins 2: The New Batch.

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 an awful movie and it's scary as hell.

10 Jumanji Jumanji Product Image

I watched Jumanji woth my classmates in school for my club and its not even scary

This ain't scary. What are you talking about?

Can't watch the part with the spider

The Contenders
11 Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Product Image

The Snake Part Was Creepy

12 The Black Cauldron The Black Cauldron Product Image

I watched this movie when I was little, and it creeped me out so much I haven't seen it since.

Scariest Disney movie, first disney cartoon to be rated PG, and scarier than the chernabog scene from fantasia

13 Who Framed Roger Rabbit Who Framed Roger Rabbit Product Image

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.

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

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

I LOVE this movie, but I will admit that Judge Doom's true form was pretty scary.

14 Spirited Away Spirited Away Product Image

I was watching this my vie with my two friends and their cousin who is older than all three of us, and we had to shut it off somewhere around twenty minutes in because their cousin got scared.

I saw this movie at a block party, and I only made it like 5 minutes in after I saw the parents turn into pigs. I should probably watch it soon.

Best movie ever

15 Watership Down

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.

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...

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!

What were they SMOKING when they rated this film? This originally rated U? This film is automatically the worst kids film for featuring decaying bunnys! I HATE it!

16 The Hunchback of Notre Dame The Hunchback of Notre Dame Product Image

Hellfire is pretty self-explanatory

Agreed with the comments.

17 Frankenweenie Frankenweenie Product Image

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

I like this movie. It was really sad though

The worst thin in the movie I the cat poo

18 Disney's A Christmas Carol Disney's A Christmas Carol Product Image

HOW IS THIS NOT HIGHER UP!? I don’t watch horror movies but this is the scariest movie I’ve ever watched. I watched it nearly 2 years ago now and I’m still terrified by it. Jacob Marley is sooo creepy.

You're just scared of it because of the CGI. Clearly you haven't seen Vannamelon's animated "Cupcakes" video or Salad Fingers.

I agree this wa scary, but only that, I found it boring. I mean, this is my opinion, so if you don't find it that way, I respect that.

When Marley unhinged his jaw, I freaked out and started to cry when I was little.

19 Little Monsters Little Monsters Product Image

Should be higher

20 Monster House Monster House Product Image

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!

I was afraid when the house got shredded then came back to life. I was also afraid of Constance.

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

I watched this when I was little and it still scares me

21 The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie Product Image

The scene with the giant green guy under water chasing them really got me as a kid

It makes sense. This movie is really dark.

Umm how is this scary

I love this movie, but that scene where SpongeBob and Patrick die for a few seconds was too dark for a kids film

22 Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Product Image

I watched this when I was in year 2 and I wans't scared for some reason.

This horrified me as a kid

In what way is this scary

23 Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland Product Image
24 All Dogs Go to Heaven All Dogs Go to Heaven Product Image
25 The Neverending Story The Neverending Story Product Image

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

Its... not... scary...
