Childhood movies
« on: October 25, 2005, 06:37:28 pm »
So I stopped by the ol' video store today and picked up "The Witches" on DVD.  IHaven't seen it since I was little, and now i know why... it'll cause kids nightmares.  But it got me wondering, what movies that were supposidly for kids would frighten them rather then entertain.

Another I can think of is Willy Wonka.... Damn I mean... you see a chicken get its head cut off. Sick.
One day, when the zombies rise and destroy humanity; I will survive, I will live on, I will take your best stuff for myself.

the positive colors and fascinating setting (at the time of its release, at least) softens it a little. But seriously, the new Willy Wonka movie made me shiver with its bleak madness.

Speaking of movies from childhoods, Father Goose is a classic, starring Cary Grant and Leslie Caron. It's pretty funny, considering it was made before anyone on this site was born.

I think Children of The Corn would give a child nightmares.
I'd rather go hunting with Dick Cheney, then go for a car ride with Ted Kennedy.Neuf sed.

That'll give most people nightmares. I can't think of a freaky kids movie off the top of my head though.

Water Ship Down, good lord, it's an animated childern's family movie about cute fuzzy flopped earred bunnies being killed.  I mean a whole rabbit's den filled with dozens of them get bulldozed by a construction company and it shows the rabbits underneath getting toppled and thrown and buried.
Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.

I thought the movie was more stupid then anything else. Although it did have Goldberg as Santa most of the time I was laughing.

It is an evil thing to have Goldberg as Santa
