'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' (1971)
Why it's terrifying: As if the sight of naughty little children blowing up into human-sized blueberries and being sucked through giant glass pipes to be turned into fudge wasn't enough, the sadists who produced "Willy Wonka" had to go a step further and give us that nightmare-inducing psychedelic boat ride scene. That's right, children all over the world were treated to such fun sights as decapitated birds, dead people with worms crawling across their faces and giant flying monsters/insects - not to mention Gene Wilder's freaked-out rhymes about Hell and the Grim Reaper. Fact: my hateful, hateful kindergarten teacher actually screened this for us on the last day of school, an experience from which I have never fully recovered.
Scarier than: A witch and a minotaur combined.
