    1These Guys Are All Doomed (The Land Before Time)
    So essentially Littlefoot and his friends are very likely doomed in later years, or at least their children were.
    The movie is cute, tragic, and pretty intense in some scenes. It was a classic that many of us have grown up with. The problem is that the events of this movie tentatively take place in the Late Jurassic period, which means that they are close to the time that dinosaurs began dying out.

  • 2He’s Done This Before (All Dogs Go to Heaven)
    Second, he's got a lot of deadly weaponry, and he has a piranha pit. How many unlucky dogs do you think met their untimely death there? This guy is just too familiar with death and killing that there's no way he hasn't killed before, and he's likely killed a lot.
    It's very likely that Charlie wasn't Carface's first victim. There's a lot of evidence pointing to this. First, he doesn't even flinch at the idea of killing Charlie, and does it with practiced ease.
  • 3They Weren’t The Greatest Parents (Coraline)
    They're constantly ignoring her and asking her to go away while they work. It's more evident since this is what the Other Mother preys on. She lures in kids with what they really desire. The fact that Coraline just wants parents who actually pay attention to her is a little sad.
    Coraline's parents (her real parents) are actually a little neglectful at the beginning of the movie. They aren't really neglectful physically (though Coraline thinks their cooking is pretty bad), but emotionally they don't give Coraline much.
  • 4How Does That Even Work? (Shrek 2)
    I'm not sure how the logistics of that kind of relationship would work. And I'm not sure I want to know...
    Toward the end of this sequel, Donkey's dragon girlfriend comes to Far Far Away and brings along a few surprises, namely some dragon-donkey hybrid babies. That's pretty much all the proof we needed that these two are dancing the dirty tango.
  • 5This House’s Appetite Is Rather Deadly (Monster House)
    The really creepy thing involving this movie is what we don't see. The creepy fact is that people have likely already died from the Monster House. While, it isn't confirmed, it's been implied that people have been killed/eaten by this cursed house.
  • 6She Clearly Doesn't Really Want This (Shrek 2)
    When Fiona proves to be resistant to Charming's advances, the Fairy Godmother tells the King to slip a love potion into Fiona's tea. The potion will activate once Charming kisses her. Granted, love potions in general are creepy, but the scenario around this one reminds me a lot of a certain kind of 'date' pill.
  • 7Hey Kids, Let’s Talk About This (The Brave Little Toaster)
    He had decided that he had enough, didn't feel appreciated enough, and decided to end it. That's a pretty dark element that happens fairly early in the movie. Looks like it was starting off pretty intense.
    The air conditioner in the home where other appliances were residing snaps and essentially blows itself up. You probably didn't catch this as a kid, but this appliance pretty much offed himself.
  • 8Stereotypes galore (Shark Tale)
    Yeah, there are a lot of stereotypes in this movie involved in character design and mannerisms. Whether or not these designs are offensive depends on the person you talk to, but most people don't really love it when movies use stereotypes as characters.
  • 9Trafficking In A Kids' Movie? (An American Tail)
    Warren T. Rat basically trafficked Fievel into slavery. Who knows what Fievel's fate would've been if he had stayed at the sweatshop? The fact that Fievel is a very young mouse makes this whole issue even more disturbing. This is pretty heavy stuff to be included in a children's movie. Kidnapping, slavery, trafficking? Seriously!?!
    In one scene, a rather suspicious looking 'rat' named Warren T. Rat lures Fievel to his place where he kidnaps Fievel and sells him off to a sweatshop. This mouse is actually a rat and he's a trafficker. Fievel manages to escape the sweatshop, but this whole scenario is seriously disturbing.
  • 10Seriously, What’s Up With This Guy? (Shrek)
    The guy is in his bed shirtless, possibly totally unclothed. Now, I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure he's not just looking at her picture.
    He hates all fairy tale creatures and basically threw them out of his kingdom. He also has a rather unhealthy fixation on Princess Fiona. One especially creepy scene that stands out is when Farquaad is in his room, looking at the image of Fiona through the Magic Mirror.
  • 11The Secret is Darker Than You Think (The Secret of NIMH)
    There's one really disturbing element that kind of gets glossed over a bit in the movie, but is still pretty horrifying. That is the nature of NIMH. This institution was essentially experimenting on animals, putting them through painful procedures and injecting them with dangerous drugs.
  • 12This Troll Might Not Be As Good As You Think (A Troll in Central Park)
    Toward the end of the movie, the kids go to Central Park with their parents and see that Stanley is alive and well. The ending of the movie shows that his plants are slowly taking over the rest of New York. I don't know about you, but that seems a little nefarious.
    It's a rather odd story about a troll named Stanley who gets banished from his world to Central Park in New York City. But unlike other trolls, Stanley loves plants and flowers. The movie follows his adventures with two little kids. It's incredibly cheesy and doesn't offer much in plot, but it's harmless.
  • 13She's In Constant Labor (Antz)
    We see the queen ant early in the movie as she is talking with the general. What we probably didn't catch is that she was likely giving birth at the time. Queen ants are generally constantly giving birth in order to grow and replenish the ant population. So, this character is in a constant state of giving birth.
  • 14How DO They Get Away With That? (The Brave Little Toaster)
    there are some rather adult elements that kids likely didn't pick up on while watching the movie. There are some appliances that have rather... interesting designs, and let's not forget the computer that was a little too into printing (seriously, who came up with that?).
  • 15Exploration And... Murder? (A Long Way North)
    . Their only hope is to find the missing ship, but as they continue to fail, the crew gets more afraid. At one point, one of the crew members wonders why Sacha should get food since this is her fault. It gets a big dark, since this crewmember is implying that she should be killed.
    The movie isn't particularly dark, mostly dealing with the crew as it works to survive the harshness of the northern seas and ice. But things decidedly get much more desperate when the crew's ship is destroyed by ice.
  • 16He Wanted To End It All (The Little Prince)
    At one point, the little prince, whom the pilot has talked to throughout the movie, is talking about the idea of returning to his planet, but he basically says that the only way to do that is through death.
  • 17The Path to Insanity is not Pleasant (The Boxtrolls)
    This tortured continued until the father went insane. This poor man was tortured to the point of insanity. That's completely messed up, and you might not realize it when you first watch the movie.
    Eggs, the main character was separated from his family as a baby, thought to be stolen by the box trolls. But it turns out instead that his father was captured by Archibald the exterminator and subsequently tortured for information.
  • 18Those Shoes Must Stink (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs)
    Flint has been wearing the same pair of shoes for years, over a decade even. His feet haven't seen the light of day since he was a kid. Am I the only one who finds that a bit gross and kind of terrible? That can't be healthy for his feet.
    In the beginning of the movie, a young Flint Lockwood shows off his invention of spray-on shoes, spraying his own feet. However, he finds that he cannot take these shoes off. This element is brought up again years later when he's an adult.
