Parents of young children will know that sometimes the best way to ensure a quiet afternoon is to watch a movie together.

After all, what better way is there to hold a child's attention than with a tale of magic, adventure and wonder?

There are countless movies out there that you might describe as magical, for a number of reasons, but what happens when that magic crosses the line from wonderful to unnerving, then onward into the realms of pure nightmares?

So, for everyone who grew up scarred by these movies, or for every parent that was forced to spend night after night soothing a terrified child after inadvertently allowing their child to watch one of these scenes, here are just some of the many magical movies that turned out to in actual fact be more than a little disconcerting.
