5 Traumatizing Kid Movies (My Personal Favorites)

Updated on April 10, 2015

My Experiences

Being Sara Psychedelic, there were many movies I grew up on that weren't so "happy ending". Many times I have been entranced by movies that have something not quite right in them, and even today I keep re-watching these and find more and more odd things in them. Perhaps you will also remember these beauties!

1. Raggedy Ann and Andy

This IS my favorite childhood movie for more reasons than one. Where should I begin?

Similar to #3 in this article, this movie is a horrid trip. While the images and colors are entrancing, if you don't like dolls in the first place I'm assuming you will never watch this movie. Besides the siblings' (Ann and Andy) toy friends, there are creatures they encounter such as Greedy, a big pile of liquidy sugar waste, and a land of hysterical creatures.

2. Troll in Central Park

Not only is Gnorga terrifying to look at, she enjoys mistreating animals and ruining the environment with her black thumb.

3. Brave Little Toaster

This whole movie is kind of like one big bad acid trip. The main characters are almost killed several times via the woods, abandoned machinery, and junkyard crushers. Watch out for the cringe-worthy clown in Blankey's dream, which was too terrifying for me to even put in this article.

4.Secret of the NIMH

Two words: giant. owl.

This used to give me nightmares as a kid. Creepy things aside, it is truly a fantastic movie.

5. Pinnochio

Now, many of you are thinking: "Pinnochio? That's a great movie". No, it's not. I dislike puppets. And turning into donkeys. And being inside a whale.

What once scared me as a child is still horrifying!

      You're right, those are terrifying and strange movies and interesting they are kids' movies. There is something fascinating about a bizarre kids movie, I must admit. Love this list and your descriptions.
