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.
