TERRIFYING MOVIES FOR KIDS

I was a neurotic, wimpy kid, but these were scary. Right?
  1. Jumanji
    I mean, I'm 7 years old and think this nightmare of a game is as easily accessible as Monopoly? Nope.
  2. Hocus Pocus
    I was convinced my cat was also a human trapped in a feline body that hadn't yet found her voice. This was equal parts intriguing and terrifying for a tiny cat lady like myself.
  3. Beetlejuice
    Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Beetlenope.
  4. Now and Then
    I was very anxious and weird, so the sheer fact that four girls became four women freaked me out and made me start thinking about and dealing with the idea that I was growing up too. Sidenote: this is now one of my faves.
  5. My Girl
    My best friend was a boy just like Macaulay Culkin. I was obviously convinced he would die any day.
  6. The Mask
    HE LITERALLY COULD NOT GET THE MASK OFF HIS FACE.
  7. Willy Wonka
    I didn't eat a blueberry until I was a teenager.
  8. Honourable mention for TV shows: Are you afraid of the dark and Freaky Stories
    YTV classics, but nope.
