Joseph Sommers' dream with the little girl in the white dress and the teddy bear with the bleeding eyeball in Robert Benton's Still Of The Night: that scene freaked me and it still does.  Buggedout

I love Empire Strikes Back. Literally, I love it. But the scene where Luke confronts the Dark Side on Dagobah always weirded me out as a kid.

The worst part is where Yoda, who had previously been goofy and fun, turns dark as s**t.

"I'm not afraid"

"You will be. You will be."

It's alright as an adult, but watching that as a kid, and right before a scene that's weird anyway?

Oh, and the granddaddy of all of this, the "wondrous boat ride" in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Small | Large


I love this now. In fact, when I'm about to subject people to something unpleasant, I like to say, "You're going to love this. Just love it."

But, man, what a weird unpleasant scene to put in a kid's movie. It's canon now, so we forgive it, but you need to remember it is several minutes of disturbing s**t put right into the middle of an otherwise pleasant narrative. There is no other reason for this scene to exist other than to scare the s**t out of unsuspecting children.

Well, played, Willy Wonka. Well played.

Yeah Willy Wonka liked to torture the kids.

There's one in "Toy Story" that made me cringe the first time. When Buzz and Woody are in Sid's room and that baby head attatched to some creepy erector set legs rises up in that dark room.....rather bizarre for a Disney kids movie.



Weird, I was thinking of that EXACT same scene. I thought that was fairly dark for a Disney movie as well

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
