It’s Halloween season, the time of year when we watch all of those super scary movies that guarantee we sleep with the light on until Thanksgiving. But not all horror flicks have blood and guts. Some of them are right there in the kid’s section next to the Yo Gabba Gabba DVDs! Yes, the most terrifying things we have ever seen have come directly from movies we saw as little kids. No matter how many decades go by, we will never be ready for these G-rated terrors!
We’re older now and more mature, and finally able to come out from under our blankeys and stand up for ourselves. So now we’d like to say what we’ve been meaning to say to the makers of these films for years: What the f–, you guys!? We were kids for god’s sake, and we trusted you to make light and entertaining movies for us. What the hell we you doing tricking us into watching this stuff!? Jerks. We’ve already done the 7 Most Traumatic Pixar Movie Moments list, so now join us as we count down the 12 scariest kid’s movie scenes of all time. Come on, do it. It’s all part of the healing process.
