15 Kids Movie Moments That Scarred You For Life

Is fearstalgia a thing?

Posted on

1. When those boys turned into DONKEYS in Pinocchio.


Seriously. A puppet who has all of the emotions of a human child and is self-aware enough to know that he is unloveable to his father is depressing enough. AND THEN KIDS TURN INTO DONKEYS.

2. That terrifying boat ride in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Paramount Pictures

Someone. Had. A. Centipede. On. Their. Face. For. This. Godforsaken. Movie.

3. Every single thing about All Dogs Go To Heaven.

United Artists

There's murder, demons, drinking, gambling, and hellfire. Enjoy, kids!

4. Hexxus, the silky-voiced skeletal pollution monster from FernGully: The Last Rainforest.

Will you ever get Tim Curry singing "Toxic Love" out of your head?

5. When Dumbo gets "drunk" and by "drunk" I mean "goes on an acid trip."

Disney / Via

And that's why we don't do drugs, Timmy.

6. When your potty training almost went out the window watching the "Night On Bald Mountain" scene in Fantasia.

Disney / Via

Because what children's movie would be complete without an appearance by the Devil himself?

7. When the forest — yes, THE FOREST — attacks Snow White.

Disney / Via

Now, dear children, you must learn to love nature. If not, trees will turn their branches into arms with which to maul you to death.

8. And when the Queen in Snow White shows young children what an exorcism looks like.

Disney / Via

Nothing to see here! Just a woman devolving into an evil demon!

9. When E.T. is dying and the whole ordeal is super realistic and he kind of looks like a dried sausage and it's awful.

Universal Pictures

"Phoning home" is sounding like a really good idea right about now.

10. When Quasimodo is tied up and pelted with vegetables in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Disney / Via

You probably had nightmares about this for days.

11. That moment when Cinderella's evil stepsisters ripped all of her clothes off.


This is NEXT LEVEL mean girl bullshit.

12. When Billy from Hocus Pocus comes back to life and is effing terrifying before he becomes kinda lovable.

Disney / Via

Because watching a man cut open his stitched-shut mouth is totally comforting.

13. Those creepy AF feet from The Wizard of Oz.

Loew's, Inc.

There's a lot of weird shit that goes down in the movie, but this early scene is still pretty damn haunting.

14. The hypnotically horrific Professor Screweyes from We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story.


::Still has eye contact issues.::

15. And lastly, the child-sized coffins that had NO CHILL in Balto.

Universal Pictures

Because there's no greater way to end the night than with the question: "Mommy, am I going to die?"

Sweet dreams!
