11 Family-Friendly Movies that Just Might Scare the Crap Out of You

By Agent Bedhead | Seriously Random Lists | August 15, 2012 |


Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory: Naturally, I'm referring to the original (not the Johnny Depp-starring version) that scared the living hell out of me. Especially when Violet Beauregarde was carted off to the juicing machine. Yikes!

Arachnophobia: This one had a shower scene that was scarier than the one in Psycho.

Igor: "Mommy, why does that rabbit keep trying to kill itself?" "Because Steve Buscemi voices that motherfucker."

The Wizard of Oz: Flying monkeys and a melting witch! Enough said.

The Neverending Story: If that scary wolf didn't make you jump out of your seat at least a few times, then I'm sorry, but you have no soul.

Beetlejuice: Most people would characterize this as more "funny" than "scary," but very little kids would beg to differ.

Labyrinth: The notion of wishing one's baby brother away is truly terrifying. And that wig on David Bowie is the stuff from which nightmares are made.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: This movie was slightly scary but did an immense public service concerning the dangers of strangers with candy.

Dumbo: Never mind the circus atmosphere ... those crazy pink elephants were enough to inspire a bad acid trip on their very own.

Coraline: My own daughter was petrified of the "other" mother who replaces her children's eyeballs with buttons.

Toy Story 3: Sure, the tearjerking moments got all the attention with this sequel, but did anybody else notice those clowns? Bloody hell.
