traumatizing moments from classic kids movies

I saw this & thought it was pretty interesting. link It talks about all the traumatizing moments in children's movies. I personally thought they should have put Monstro from Pinocchio in there b/c that whale scared the living hell out of me as a child. any other moments in kids movies that were traumatizing that weren't on the list?

I do remember having a year's long of nightmare's over Chuckie! lol I seriously had nightmares for a year after watching it! I still am too creeped out by it to even hear people speak about it. I don't know what it was about that movie. I even tried watching it a few years ago and still couldn't! & I'm the kinda girl that's seen some horrifying crap in real life so I've no clue why the movie freaked me out so badly. I'll have to read on your link you posted. Your question just reminded me of how freaky that chuckie was lol.


--- OK, Just read that link. WOW! I remember watching NIHM! I didn't even remember it until I saw the pic of the owl! Wow, I'd forgotten all about that movie. lol Anyways, just terrible! The boobs?! WTF! But I don't remember much about child movies and haven't watched any movie in years so to me a lot of that stuff sounded ridiculous. I mean the posts were very distasteful the way they used the G.D. Word made me think.. wow, you're critisizing child movies, yet you're spewing disgusting, crude words? I pretty much thought most of them weren't bad, the DISNEY movies anyway. I didn't care for the boobs and that was totally uncalled for. My kids WOULD NOT be watching that one, but overall it seemed a little petty. I don't know though, you know I did say I don't watch movies and hardly recall any of them listed so who knows.

you know, pretty much all of them were not scary to me as a kid, and the neverending story shows the wrong scary part, when you first see The Nothing face on that freaked me out! this is much scarier than the horse drowning.

They also left off Old Yeller with the rabid wolf scene and then when they have to shoot old yeller.

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.

Actually, Return to Oz was closer to the Oz books than the Judy Garland movie. Dorothy was a young child, not a teen. And, the books are terrifying! My kids LOVED Return to Oz, (probably prepared them for playing American's McGee's Alice now, as well as their love for Steam Punk) they wore that tape out. There is good stress and bad stress, old fairy tales, with their violence, sex and terror have gone through the test of time, and do seem to still be popular for many reasons.

Fairy tales are full of terrifying images and ideas to help children process scary things in real life. It's actually been proven that the old versions of fairy tales, with all their violence are better for kids than sanitized versions. Fear, or thinking about what one would do in scary situations not only spurs the imagination, but helps kids work out trauma. I wouldn't let a small child see a slasher film, but we did read the old fairy tales in their original form. I read both Grimms' and Hans Christian Anderson in the old form, and they were great!

I think Bambi losing his mother was pretty scary for me, but it didn't scar me.

A movie that freaked me as a kid was Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (the 1970's version). It still freaks me out when it is on TV and I have not seen the remake either.

I agree Old Yeller was so sad to me as a kid (and even now). It is a classic but my kids have not seen it.

I did not think Who Framed Roger Rabbit was a kids movie, but....JMHO

For a long time when I was a kid I was afraid to watch the "Night on Bald Mountain" part of "Fantasia." Not surprised to see that one on the list.

Yeah, that got me too. There was also another part of Fantasia that made me cry as a kid too...something with Centaurs I think.

I was going to refer to WW and the Chocolate Factory--the scene on the ferry? TERRIFYING.

All Dogs Go to Heaven was really disturbing and definitely contributed to a few nightmares.

I also HATED The Nightmare Before Christmas, but I'm not sure it was really a kids' movie. I might like it better now.

Escapt to With Mountain and Return to Witch Mountain (the originals) gave me nightmares about people chasing me trying to kill me

First of all, Child's Play isn't a child's movie. So if you watched it as a child, I would expect you to have nightmares.

Boobs? What boobs? In Roger Rabbit? WFRR is not a child's movie either.

There's this misconception that because something features dolls or animation that it's OK for kids to watch it. That is certainly not true.

As for me, the movies I remember being afraid of as a child were Willy Wonka and the boat scene. The trees and the flying monkeys in W.Oz. I did not particularly care for ET, the scene where he's dying is terribly frightening/sad. Some of the parts of the Ewok Adventures (DON'T JUDGE! They were AWESOME when I was six!) freaked me out with the giant creature thing in the first one and the witch in the second one.

I do remember not being particularly freaked out by any of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies that I had seen as a child. So, take that however you want.

True kids movie horror was Bambis mothers death. Second was the flying monkeys in wizard of oz.

Wow; Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Secret of NIMH, All Dogs Go to Heaven, Return to OZ, and The NeverEnding Story were "traumatizing?" Those were some of my favorite movies. Two movies that did get to me when I was little were The Land Before Time and Hook. When that Lost Boy was stabbed and killed by Captain Hook I started crying, and for years I had a recurring nightmare of being chased by Sharp Tooth.

I used to get sooooo freaked out by kids movies. The demon things from "Babe in Toy land," the owl from "NIMH," half of "all dogs go to heaven" scared the hell out of me, and I couldn't watch them before I went to bed. I remember having to leave Lord of the Rings also. Now I don't mind scary movies, I guess I was just easily scared as a child.
