Top Ten Worst Movies to Show in a School Class Full of 8 Year Olds

The Top Ten

1 Meet the Feebles

This is the movie that crosses the line of adult oriented crass and gross out humor and ends up being simply disturbing. The humor in this is so deeply dark that I ended up feeling way worse than after Requiem for a Dream... we see the complete mental and physical breakdown of about all of the level, to an extent that I have not seen in any movie, comedy or serious. Actually, the fact that these are puppets and customes doesn't make this any less intense. In fact, it adds to the filthy and un-hygienic atmosphere.

Nevertheless... this is a masterpiece. No sarcasm here. The entire tone, the characters that you actually care for, the showbiz satire,...

Also, it includes the greatest and most catchy song about gay sex you'll ever hear. Really, this has become one of my favorite songs since then, musically. - Martin_Canine

2 The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!
3 Fritz the Cat

Absolutely inappropriate for children definitely, but I think many people dismiss this merely as a piece of adult oriented comedy, but there's much more to it: it is actually about the early 70s youth who want to revolt no matter what, but only for the sake of revolting, and not because of serious politics or sociocritical thoughts and ideals. Fritz becomes part of several movements and countercultures throughout the film that sometimes contradict. Since this was made in the middle of the free love ideology of the hippies, it has much sex, but also satire, plot and interesting thoughts. - Martin_Canine

4 Team America: World Police
5 Watership Down

This thing is rated 6+ over here... should be 12+. The violence is disturbing to kids, in most cases you need to be a teenager to handle that. - Martin_Canine

6 Antichrist
7 A Clockwork Orange
8 Stephen King's It
9 Tokyo Gore Police
10 Hannibal

The Contenders

11 Paranormal Activity
12 Dead Alive
13 Poltergeist
14 Foodfight!

I don't know this movie, but it doesn't seem to be inappropriate for children. - Martin_Canine

15 Pulp Fiction
16 Natural Born Killers
17 Norm of the North

I don't know this either, but also this looks perfectly suitable for children. - Martin_Canine

18 Movie 43
19 The Human Centipede
20 Saw
21 Jurassic Park III

It's terrible! Even though I use to love watching the whole entire franchise as a kid!

Watched the movies at age 8 or so, and most of my classmates did so as well. For children, this type of movie is more of an exciting thrill ride - enchanting, funny, yet a bit scary - than truly violent.
Adventure, fantasy and scifi are fine for most kids that age because they are already familiar with the formula and the context is entirely fictitious, and you have heroes and bad guys. Also they can smell a cheap jump scare from miles.

But please note that I come from Austria and that perhaps the children in other countries have different experiences (my generation grew up on anime series such as Pokémon, One Piece, Inuyasha, Case Closed,...)

(All of the JP movies are rated 12 over here) - Martin_Canine

22 This is the End
23 Black Swan
24 Coonskin
25 Sausage Party
26 The Godfather
27 The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
28 Insidious
29 The Lion King
