12 Moments From Disney Movies That Probably Belonged In A Horror Film

- Page 1


There were plenty of cartoons in our childhoods that either snuck surprisingly mature moments into episodes, or were even pretty messed up in general. However, it's Disney, the most squeaky clean and kid-friendly of companies, that often had some of the absolute scariest moments in their best movies. These 12 are just some of the examples of this.

The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh - Heffalumps And Woozles


Pooh's first encounter with Tigger is silly and funny... until he has a nightmare about the Heffalumps and Woozles that Tigger warns him will try to steal his honey. Then things turn into a creepy mix of Lovecraftian nightmare-scapes and surreal imagery.

Pinocchio - Pleasure Island


Pleasure Island is supposed to be a haven for boys who skip school and behave badly, but it turns out the giant park has some kind of power that turns the kids into donkeys. They can still talk and cry... which they do plenty of while being shipped off to freaking SALT MINES.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame - Hellfire


One of the most surprisingly mature songs to be found in a Disney movie, Judge Claude Frollo laments his lust for the gypsy Esmarelda, resolving to either make her his by force or else have her burn in the fires of Hell. The lyrics are rough enough, but add in the imagery and this song is chilling.

The Little Mermaid - Ursula


From her lair in the deepest depths of the ocean, to her transformation into a giant, ship-smashing monster, everything about Ursula is genuinely creepy.


Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - The Queen's Transformation


The Evil Queen in Snow White is plenty terrifying as it is, thanks to her constant angry expression and unblinking eyes. However, it all comes to a head with her transformation into an old witch; a scene which feels genuinely evil.

Dumbo - Pink Elephants On Parade


Dumbo takes a real sharp turn into creepy territory with this hallucination scene. The elephants' lack of eyes and weird movements combine with the pure black background to create something genuinely unsettling.
