Scary Moments: Disney Edition

They just don't make them like they used to. I'm talking not only about a good pair of pants, but also  about Disney Movies. While I love UP and WALL-E with a passion I can't help but gaze at my old Disney VHS's- a time when sexual innuendoes were snuck cleverly into the films and your Aladdin CD never left your cd player. So to celebrate the good old fashioned Disney movies of old- I have compiled a few unusally scary moments from some of everyone's favorites.

Sleeping Beauty
It is my firm belief that Maleficent is the scariest thing to ever be drawn in the world. 

Her horns, her ghastly greenish face- she's this terrifying looking demon basically and she wonders why she wasn't invited to the Princess' birthday? Puh-lease you should be wondering why the town hasn't killed you yet. The only thing scarier than Maleficent is that scene where Aurora is in the castle crying and that really scary music starts and an opening forms in the fireplace leading her up to the spindle...ahhh! 

101 Dalmatians

Possibly the second scariest thing to ever be drawn is Cruella Deville. This woman is a hybrid of white trash and the devil, plus she wants to kill puppies for their fur! That scene where she's driving like a bat out of hell in her car, chasing the puppies....holy jesus.

The Little Mermaid

I really have a distaste for those mermaids that sold their soul to Ursula and became those terrible looking seaweed demons. They have these weird gummy mouths and latch onto people swimming by... it's just blagh.

Very true, some scary faces indeed.

Maleficent is my favorite. The classic Disney movies rule. The new CGI animation just doesn't have the same charm. How about Horned King from Black Cauldron?!?!? He's awesome.

Ok I confess I just googled Black Cauldron and had no idea it existed!!! I feel awful

the positive thing you can take away from the 'poor unfortunate souls' in the little mermaid is that they provided the perfect inspiration for our writhing-on-the-floor-in-a-sexy-way moves for Toxic. i know no one else knows what that means, but trust me, when andre and i get on our knees and do the ursula's bitches dance to britney, it's incredible.

Andre said...

Hahaha Ooh Izzy that sounded so dirty on many levels. But YES that was immediately what I thought of when I wrote about that!

Maleficent is my favorite villain, you're pretty bad ass if you can turn yourself into a dragon. And the Black Cauldron is pretty cool, I found out about it recently too.

Best post EVER! I love/miss classic Disney films. I need to go buy them all up right this second!

One of my favorites is the Disney telling of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. While aimed at kids they don't treat the headless horseman as a joke. Creeped me out as a kid.

Mario Bava quoted Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs as one of his primary inspirations in Black Sunday (one of the best horror films ever made). Apparently had something of a ban on horror films after the war, which was largely responsible for the Italian Gothic Horror breakout.

You can totally see the resemblance between the two forest chase scenes!
