Since Halloween is fast-approaching, I spent the morning browsing online for a fun list of the best kids’ Halloween movies ever made. What I found instead was this list of “The 26 Most Disturbing Kids Movies Ever” on Babble.
Here are just a few of the kids’ movies the writer found to be too disturbing for little ones:
- Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original!)
- Chronicles of Narnia
- The Labyrinth
- Monster House
- The Wizard of Oz
- Old Yeller
- The Nightmare Before Christmas
I have to admit that I thought this article was pretty hilarious, and raised a lot of valid points. The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my favorite films to watch during this time of the year, but I have a close friend who is still haunted by the entire idea of Halloween Town. I also distinctly remember being terrified of E.T., regardless of his “cute” antics.
Do you agree? Are some kids movies too over-the-top for your children? Which films would have made your list? You tell us!
