Sometimes apart from comedy and action movies, horror films are also the best option to watch to feel the suspense, and a bit of terror in yourself, and jog one’s memory that anything could be possible even if that is completely fantasized.
Normally Disney Plus is full of Family-oriented, comedy, and adventurous movies but these are some of the most scarifying horror movies available to watch on Disney plus.
1. Don’t Look Under the Bed
Director: Kenneth Johnson
Cast: Erin Chambers, Robin Riker, Erin Chamber
Release year: 1999
A horror/fantasy movie following the story of a juvenile girl named “Frances” who addresses the theme of fantasy, horror, and tenacity of faith. Frances, who is a grown-up mindset and is responsible, feels obligated to face his imaginative friend Larry, who she thought to be accountable for all the string of bizarre and perilous pranks in her community.
This movie is for younger audiences who don’t want the experience to be very scary. That is why it mixes horror with fantasy with many eerie moments like the appearance of the boogeyman, or when a bunch of toys become real and attack France.
So if you want to see a less frightening movie then “Don’t Look Under the Bed” is the best option to watch.
