Thought you were in for an innocent adventure? You were wrong. For this list, we’re looking at films that may, at first glance, appear suitable for a child, but that take a dark turn that may frighten younger children, as well as films that are simply too mature or inappropriate. Our list includes “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” (1988), “Where the Wild Things Are” (2009), “Labyrinth” (1986), “Dumbo” (1941), “The Secret of NIMH” (1982), and more!

  1. Don’t hold your breath. The new Dumbo sucked. I loved the original, though. Why did they have to remake it with a ton of unnecessary CG crap? But I do believe that Coraline is a freaky movie for kids, even if it’s supposedly “PG.” I still love the movie.

  2. BRUH, remember the first time I watched coralline I GOT NIGHTMARES. I’ve come to love it now because it sure as hell is pretty spooky.

  3. I loved The Secret of Nimh as a kid and today, it’s my favorite animated film. And Roger Rabbit is my favorite movie of all-time.

    You should have included Nutcracker in 3D.

  4. Shrek should have at least gotten an honorable mention since it is extremely loaded with innuendos.
