Children pick up and learn through a lot of the things that they see. This is why parents need to be aware of what the media feeds their children's minds. For kids, movies can be something that molds their ways of thinking in the long run. For young people, a film can either give a great experience or something that they would rather forget for the rest of their lives. Do you remember the first time your folks or your older siblings took you out for a movie night? Were you able to save yourself from the sight of ugly creatures or disturbing images? Nowadays, media content for children was met with the strictest guidelines of censorship but back in the day, things tended to be different.

You can ask your parents and we're pretty sure that they remember some movies that gave them sleepless nights. And we're sure you have your own share of childhood film experiences that you would rather keep. Whether you got traumatized by way of huge monsters, paranormal beings, or simply sad plots, at least you have got a list of some unwanted titles which you can hide from your children. These titles need not be horror movies. All a flick needs for it to be a traumatizing movie are some elements that would stick to the audience's head for a good number of years.
