List Rules
Vote up the best movies that gave you childhood nightmares.

There are plenty of movies that we watch as children that we never think of once we get into our teens, but there are a few that are going to stick with us forever. Whether they're animated, live-action, or feature puppets, children's horror movies have a knack for sticking with audiences long after the credits are over.

The horror movies for kids that are collected here aren't just scary - they feature themes and intense visuals that remain nightmare fuel well into adulthood. Some of these are horror-comedies that cut closer to the bone than you'd think, while others mask real-world fears inside of fantastic stories. Whatever the case, at least one of these movies (or, you know, all of them) gave you nightmares as a child and still resonates with audiences well into adulthood.
