We all grew up on the famous Walt Disney legacy. If you were raised in America you have seen probably most of the films at some point. They are really works of art when you think about all the time and effort that goes into the animation. Looking back as adults it is disturbing to see some of the pure darkness that is found within these films. Things we over looked or shrugged off as a child might now make you wonder, who writes this stuff?!? I thought these were innocent children’s movies. Maybe not.
The death of Bambi’s mother. This is one of the most famous and beautiful of Disney movies. It is also one of the oldest. Almost every child has seen this movie at one time or another. All of the adorable woodland critters suck you into a world of cute innocence. The beauty of the music and animation is absolutely captivating. Sadly this is all abruptly cut short when Bambi’s mother is shot and killed by hunters leaving Bambi to fend for himself as a baby.
9. Hunchback of Notre Dame
From the very beginning this movie is just messed up. In the first few scenes you see a man chasing a woman on a dark, menacing horse with red eyes. In the woman’s arms you see a small bundle that is obviously a baby. She is quickly murdered outside of a cathedral. When the Childs deformities are recognized, he is nearly drowned in a well and it is said that he “needs to be sent back to hell where he belongs”. Later in the movie Quasimodo is tied up and publicly humiliated for his deformities. They literally tie him down, and throw food at him until help arrives. Oh and that not all. Towards the end of the film you are led to believe that the heroine of the movie is killed by smoke inhalation whilst being burned at the stake. You only discover that she survives later on.
