The BBC version, wasn't nearly as dark as the theatrical version, I still like this film, but I have to admit, it could be a bit much at times, from Tilda Swinton's portrayal of the White Witch, to the battle scenes (which thankfully for kids, are too brutal), and Aslen's "death scene".

What? Did you "really" think that he would be killed off for real? Besides, there still the sequels to go!

To this very day, the boat ride scene, scares the hell out me, even after the millionth viewing.

Also, demises of the kids, were a bit much to take, even if arguably, they were "asking for it", for not paying attention to the rules. But don't worry, they turn out okay in the end, horribly and mentally scared in the end, but still okay. Kind of sort of.

Dumbo (1941)
The scene in which Mrs. Jumbo, attacks the kids for attacking Dumbo, and is imprisoned for her troubles, is one of the most heart breakingly sad moments of all time. Lesson learned? Kids (but not all kids), can be unreasonably cruel.

The pink elephants? Now, that's a different story, all together.

Labyrinth (1986)
It's one of my favorite kids movies, for me, the scary parts were the Eternal Bog of Stench, the wall of arms, the trash lady, who reminds kind of Aughra, and the giant metal ball of death.

Now, I think of the film, as an odd combination of Muppets and Monty Python, which only seems fitting, since Terry Jones, co wrote the film. That and the puppets, the music, and David Bowie, are some of my favorite parts about the movie.

As a kid, when I first saw the film, I had a love hate relationship, with the movie.

Why?

1) The scene where Artax drowns in the Swamp of Sadness, and Atreyu is helpless to stop it from happening.

2) The moment where the knight, gets obliterated by lasers, and you see his smoldering corpse.

3) One word. The G'Mork!

4) But the cherry, on the top of the delicious sundae, is the film's bad guy. The Nothing. It's not a great monster, or a radioactive lizard. Ir's living, breathing, ominous, sentient, cloud of nothing.

Destroying everything in it's path, and reducing the place to oblivion.

But hey, everything turns out okay, in the end. Bastien, will need to see a psychiatric, one day, but everything turns out okay in the end.

Now, I like watching the movie, but back then you couldn't pay me to watch it again.

Hey, wanna see something really scary? Just watch The NeverEnding Story Part III. Now, that's a scary movie!

As with The NeverEnding Story, I had a love hate relationship, with this movie.

For many, many, mean, reasons. First, there is the Skeksis, then there are scenes were the Podlings, get tortured, then there is a dinning room scene, and the Garthim.

To, me back then, the movie was like one big, Muppet filled snuff film.

Return to Oz (1985)
The original film, was one bright and cheerful (mostly bright and cheerful) film. The unofficial sequel?

The stuff that fricking nightmares, are made of! Remember at the end of The Wizard of Oz?

Wellllll, supposedly, after she told Auntie Em and Uncle Henry, about her "adventures", they, did what any reasonable people would do. Had poor Dorothy, locked away where she was about to undergo, electro shock therapy.

That's right. Electro shock therapy.

Luckily, Dorothy, goes back to Oz, only to find it over run by Wheelies, ruled by the Nome King, and an evil head obsessed Princess, and her friends turned to stone.

How do we know, that Dario Argento, wasn't the one who really directed this film?

The great thing, about this film is doesn't go for the creeps, half way. No, it goes the full way, straight from the beginning.

Characters are put in peril, the blood and deaths, even for a animated movie, are very much realistic, the bad guys are as menacing as all get, the baby mouse is near death, and as a kid, I wasn't ready for just how dark, and gritty, the film could get.

The sequel? Now, that's a very different nightmare all together, one that may never recover from, after seeing the movie.

The monster land under Brian's bed looks, fun and enjoyable, full with junk food, toys, and all sorts of goodies, but if you stay down there long enough, you risk turning into a monster.

Plus, the pranks pulled in the film, especially on the girl, that "supposedly Brian, kind of sort of likes", are more mean spirited, than funny. Heck, Brian's parents even appear to be on the verge of divorce, though out the course of movie!

Personally, as a kid, I found the movie, sad and depressing. Fun. But sad and depressing.

I guess the scary part, comes from the fact that some kids, might be startled at first by the appearance of E.T., and then there is the infamous "scene".

But at least everything, is ok by the end of the film. It took a near death of an alien, to get there, though.

I always imagine that the pitch meeting for the film meeting, went a lot like this....

Disney executive # 1: I have an idea, let's make the Hunchback of Notre Dame, into a film!

Disney executive # 2: But isn't that one of Victor Hugo's more darker, depressing novels?

Disney executive # 1: Yes, but if we tone it down, a bit it still will be a fun film for kids! And we still have Judge Frollo as a evil, sinister bad guy, and have him singing a song about him feeling kind of guilty about stuff he does but not really guilty because, you know he's still a bad guy and all.

Disney executive # 2: But won't it be still all a bit too much?

Disney executive # 1: Let's add singing gargoyles then!

Disney executive # 2: Get idea! Can't we make a animated musical about Les Miserables, next?

Some people had a field day, with the idea of a film filled with talking turtles who just happen to know martial arts, wayward teenagers stealing things, amongst other things, enough to have the Turtles considerably dialed down for the sequel.

Interesting fact: The depiction of chainsticks on screen was rarely allowed in the UK, so the movie was heavily cut or reframed to remove every last trace of them for its original theatrical exhibition.

The film is like a slow burn, of creepiness, one that stays with you until the very end. Then there's the ending. The original ending was apparently, too much (even for Disney!)

So, they went with an almost equally scarier ending. The film also has something to do with aliens and ghosts.
