** How is the boat ride anything but? You're stuck in a tunnel where you get flashes of insects crawling out of people's bodies, spiders, and a man butchering animals, all while Gene Wilder appears to be going insane. It was even nightmare fuel for the ''other actors'' -- they were told that they would be on a boat, and that Gene would do something, after which they had their lines. [[EnforcedMethodActing And that's all they were told!]] When everything goes shit crazy and people don't seem to be able to even speak right, it's because they CAN'T.

* Willy Wonka himself is pretty freaky at times -- even -- scratch that, ESPECIALLY -- when portrayed by Gene Wilder. Aside from the aura of barely-veiled madness, the guy engineers some pretty disturbing fates for his ill-mannered guests. (Not that they didn't all ''[[LaserGuidedKarma deserve]]'' it, but it's still disturbing to watch.) His unconcerned attitude toward the horrible demises of his guests are certainly unnerving, along with his general NightmareFetishist behavior. Memorable quotes include:

** Creator/EliRoth said as much: "This is the moment when the movie takes a turn. You're no longer kids on a whimsical adventure. You are now ''the prisoners of a madman.''"

* Meta-Example: The bees that are shown collecting honey for the gum machine? Those were actually wasps. At one point during filming, the colony died and had to be replaced. An unknown party removed the glass dome, causing the wasps to escape and thus forcing everyone to evacuate the set.

* "Pure Imagination" isn't really a scary song - in fact it's quite nice, soothing even. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BkBGdnUNSk Until Fiona Apple covers it.]] Suddenly the lyrics are far more chilling than they were before.

** Also, the way Grandpa Joe and the other parents hold their kids a little tighter when Wonka starts singing. With the fear begin real, you can tell they're ready to jump overboard if it mean getting off this hell ride.

* The first thing people of a certain age will mention when the topic of "things that scared the crap out of you as a child when you didn't expect it" will be the "There's no earthly way of knowing/which direction we are going" sequence of ''Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory''. No child alive saw it coming. It remains one of the ultimate examples of Nightmare Fuel to this day. It even made Bravo's ''100 Scariest Movie Moments'' list (it was #74).
