List RulesVote up your favorite terrifying animated movies.

Looking for animated horror movies? Then you've come to the right place. These are the scariest cartoon feature-length films that you'll find anywhere. From Dead Space: Downfall to Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. Not all of these animated horror films are appropriate for kids but you will find some family-friendly animated scary movies such as Frankenweenie, Caroline, and Haunted House, along with some animated ghost movies. These tend to be more spooky than terrifying but the list wouldn't be complete without them. Also, if you enjoyed the Hugh Jackman film Van Helsing, you'll find the animated horror prequel Van Helsing: The London Assignment on this list. But are these the top animated horror films available?

It's time to determine the greatest animated horror movie of all time with the help of your votes. Vote up the animated horror films that you loved and vote down the ones that left you bored. Don't see an animated horror movie that you think should be on the list? Feel free to add it and check back to see how other users rate your addition. New animated horror films will be added to the list as they are released.
