Many kids of the 1990s and 2000s have a special relationship with the term "Disney Channel Original Movie." DCOM releases were some of the most significant entertainment moments for a lot of young lives at the time. Your parents didn't have to take you to the movie theater... the movie was being released right in your home! Of course, the quality was a bit lacking, and they were all more than a little cheesy, but you take what you can get when you're a preteen. And while most DCOMs seem pretty harmless and generally are pretty harmless, there are more than a few that have some dark moments tucked in their scant run times.
Like, in the first Zenon movie, where two guys try to murder a bunch of innocent people to get insurance money? Or in 'Twas the Night, where Bryan Cranston's character is tied to a chair and threatened with physical violence if he doesn't repay the $30,000 he scammed from some "investors"? Perhaps Tiger Cruise is more your speed since it literally is all about dealing with the aftermath of the September 11 attacks? Any way you slice it, some DCOMs are a bit more bleak than you recall.
