So IMDB has on their front page movies that are ‘Unintentional Horror’ and I thought it was funny because it included White Chicks and well, you know that is true about that. But anyway it got me thinking about all the fabulous movies I watched as Little Rita and how some were scarring beyond belief. Like I still can’t get over it I am forever traumatized.
Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure
Okay so I highly enjoyed this movie since as a youth it was quite funny. The visuals in it were quite memorable. I would want to find my bike too and I would’ve LOVED to take a bath in such a huge bath tub. Unfortunately when Pee-Wee was walking on the side of the highway in the dark he was picked up by no other than Large Marge:
I have learned to never take a ride from a truck or anyone for that matter.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
This was one of my favorite movies since it had cartoons AND people and I just thought it was the coolest thing. I even had a video game on my Nintendo for the movie and it was really hard but I liked driving around in the cab. Good times. It was fabulous entertainment until the villain reveal:
Now it looks kinda hokey but at the time it was quite frightening.
Return to Oz
Now like any child, The Wizard of Oz was a great film to watch since it was full of magic and wonder and color! So Disney made a sequel and of course you expected all that was there in the first one. But it totally wasn’t. Dorothy is in a crazy house for crying out loud. There are 2 scenes in Return to Oz that just ruin my life. It could be said that the whole movie is insanely frightening but I like the Pumpkin dude and the moose and Tik Tok.
What the hell! Like seriously! Let’s have some dudes with freakishly long limbs wheel around and be creepy and scare your pants off! Let’s!
But it gets worse:
She doesn’t have a head! Her heads are in her closet! She has a closet of heads! How is this normal? Well they are in Oz, but seriously! Needless to say I did purchase this movie from Amazon and watched it and realized it was still creepy as heck.
I am sure there are more but those are the ones that pop into my mind of things that still freak me out in movies that are not meant to freak you out. These are family movies okay, they are supposed to be happy and we are supposed to learn good morals and what not. Not scarred for life.
