Nightmare Fuel: Aladdin
Works with their own Nightmare Fuel pages:

The Disney film:

  • Snake Jafar.
  • Aladdin almost drowning.
  • Jasmine nearly suffocating in a giant hourglass.
  • Carpet being unraveled.
  • Some of the Genie's faces are Uncanny Valley.
  • The Cave of Wonders screaming "Now you will never again see the light! Of! Daaaaaaayyyy!!"
  • The thief at the beginning getting "eaten" by the Cave of Wonders.
  • The Cave of Wonders, period. A giant sand tiger creature with glowing eyes and a wide open mouth is...incredibly unsettling.
  • Abu pulling the sword out of the sword swallower's mouth in "One Jump Ahead".
  • The deleted ending where the Peddler reveals himself to be the Genie - supposedly cut for time, or because people would have left early and missed the gag, but maybe the REAL reason is that it would have ended the movie on an eerie note. This sequence has only been seen by the masses in storyboard form, but the combination of the Peddler/Genie's ominous vocal tone, dramatic music in the background, the sudden unexpected "poof" transformation, and the fast pace of the sequence gives it a strong scare factor. Then, to top it off, the Genie "makes ya look" as in the final ending, except that he does so by letting out a really shrill scream.
  • "Your eternal reward ..."
  • Jafar's insane laughter at the end of Prince Ali Reprise and the shot of him slowly looming over Jasmine and the Sultan, who are both defenseless and utterly terrified.
    Jafar: Ex-Prince AliiiiiiiEEE HAHAHAHA! AHH HAHAHAHA!! AHHHH HA HA HA!!!
  • The original concept art for Genie.
  • Genie turned into a rotten zombie form while explaining to Aladdin that his powers forbide him to bring dead people to life.
