15 Children’s Films Which Scared The Living Daylights Out Of You As A Child
As kids, we watched some of the coolest movies and we watched some of the scariest ones as well. The films in the list below are one that scare the living daylights of us and we will never forget them.
1. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Snow White was a charming girl who had such an innocent demeanor but he stepmother was evil and would talk to a mirror that would talk back to her.
This in my books qualifies as a creepy film.
This film was and is one of the greats..
But I can remember hiding my face at times while watching this one.
3. The Dark Crystal
This one was of one of the great’s but it still had its moments.
4. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Ask anyone who is in their 30s or 40s which film scared them the most and this one would likely come up.
I think a lot that was because of Robert Helpmann’s super creepy portrayal of the main character.
5. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
That psychedelic boat trip…
The oompa loompas scared me the most!
6. The Watcher In The Woods
This one made us aware that something might just be going on in the woods.
Who in their right mind didn’t get scarred as a child watching Bambi’s mother die?
8. Return To Oz
The first one wasn’t so bad but the sequel was just down right creepy.
Remember Dorothy getting electro shock therapy?
Just Tim Curry’s devil character.
The Goblin King steals the baby sister of (Jennifer Connolly) and she is sent on a terrifying mission to save her before she is turned into a goblin.
Nothing scary about that!?
11. The Witches
That nose gave me the creeps.
12. The Little Mermaid
Ursula scared the crap out of us as kids!
She reminds me of Anne Hegarty.
Jafar turning into a creepy red-eyed snake.
I wouldn’t like to come across him anytime soon.
14. The Animals Of Farthing Woods
This was a TV series was a classic!
But the animals that had to meet grim fates was just too traumatic for us as kids!
You know just a storyboard coming to life and trying to kill you!
Nothing scary about that!
