For Cerridwen's SAKE, Wizards
WAS NOT a kids' movie! Just because it was animated does not make it kid-friendly! It's by RALPH BAKSHI! (Enough said.) Bet these are the same people who put Heavy Metal
tapes in the kids' section of the local video rental store back in the 80's.
And the 'ghost army' in Bedknobs and Broomsticks
ROCKED. No trauma here - I wanted to command my own substituary locomotion army of knights, cavaliers, vikings, and redcoats after that.
I admit Secret of NIMH
got me - not because of the owl, but because of the flashback of NIMH's labs. That freaked me out.
Oh, and Fantasia
wasn't supposed to be a kids' movie, either. It was released to an adult audience in the 1940's who protested it's graphic imagery (mostly concerning the dinosaurs in the 'Rites of Spring' segment, not the 'Night on Bald Mountain' segment).
Not on the list - when the Evil Queen was the Old Witch in Snow White
. Uncle Walt knew how to convey spiritual leprosy in his work, made me decide to keep my soul in check. Oh, and the Fieries from Labyrinth
- most living creatures are not supposed to take various parts of their bodies off and still be alive, especially their eyeballs.
