10 Kids’ Movies That Are Actually Deeply Disturbing
The jungle may not be the spookiest environment in which to set a movie, but try bringing it to the city and it’s another kettle of fish entirely. Not even an early appearance from Kirsten Dunst could detract from the unnerving and often petrifying scenes of jungle animals taking over a town in the ’90s classic, Jumanji.
Throw into the mix a deranged British hunter with an elephant gun and a lust for human blood and you have one traumatizing movie. The storyline concerns a young boy who is sucked into the jungle by a cursed board game as a child, returning as an adult when the game is rediscovered and the curse transposed. Cue tarantulas, floods and giant jungle animals. The word ‘disturbing’ doesn’t do justice to the emotional roller coaster on which we embarked, shaking us to the very core of our being. Think Hellraiser with giraffes.
