The 25 Most Memorable Kids Movies That Weren’t Actually Kid-Friendly

The Corpse Bride (2005)

Tim Burton was responsible for the 2005 remake Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and has a knack for turning stories meant for children into something more mature. Or, does Burton simply water down more adult-themed tales into a more palatable version for kids? Either way, Burton’s movies have a sense of eeriness to them even when they’re assigned the “PG” label.

The Corpse Bride earned a PG rating with citations of mild language and some scary imagery. Some is really putting it lightly. The stop-motion animated film starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter as the leads revolves around death and decay and featured numerous decomposing bodies. Themes that parents might not deem suitable for their young children.
