We all know Walt Disney Studios. It’s the Mouse House, an outfit that has specialized in U-rated animation and live-action family entertainment for almost a century; the legendary studio that’s been responsible for some of the best and most feel-good movies ever.
For the most part, you’re right to think of Disney as a family-friendly studio. You might be surprised to learn, however, that not all the pictures Disney has given the world have been made for general consumption. Yes, it’s mostly been cartoons, adventure, comedy – but with a smattering of adult, and sometimes very dark cinema.
Released under the names of various subsidies, just like the Disney-owned Marvel flicks and Star Wars films, you won’t see the Disney banner popping up at the beginning of many of the movies listed here. But make no mistake about it, the Mouse House was behind all of them, and we bet you had no idea.
