* In the climax of the "Cinderella Castle Mystery Tour" attraction at Tokyo Disneyland that operated from 1986 to 2006, guests faced the Horned King and got to watch him as he raises the skeletons lying on the battlefield in front of you as Cauldron Born. And it took place inside a dark cavern. With realistic audio-animatronics. It was as terrifying as it sounds.

While Disney/TheBlackCauldron may be related to its innocuous, light-hearted Disney Cousins, it subverts them by being full of NightmareFuel beyond most children's comprehension.

* The Horned King is telling his warriors to become "messengers of death" and the screen makes a close up of his face, and we get [[http://application.denofgeek.com/pics/film/darkdisney/08.jpg this]] lovely image. It almost looks like an example of TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou.

** He is one of the most horrific Disney villains, being [[TheGrimReaper a skull-faced, brown-robed nightmare]] with horns and the menacing voice of John Hurt. But then you add [[DemBones the warrior skeletons]] reanimated by the Black Cauldron, [[ImplacableMan the Cauldron Born, who lurch out of the cauldron, attacking anyone in the way]]. They shamble inexorably from the Horned King's castle to slaughter all in their path, and boy, do they not skimp on the slaughter and death in this movie. It ended up needing several cuts to avoid an ''R'' rating, and that still left in some of the blood.

* One of the most effective [[JumpScare Jump Scares]] of all time, when Taran is sneaking around a guard... and is caught by the guard's dog, who barks ''extremely'' loudly and out of nowhere in a silent scene.
** It does it again after Taran finds the magic sword. As he's looking for Eilonwy--again, in a quiet scene--a guard leaps out of nowhere with a roar and tries to cut his head off.

** To quote website Blog/ToplessRobot, here's two of the scenes that Disney cut out of the movie:
-->In one of these missing shots, an undead warrior spawned by the title cauldron gorily slices through an unsuspecting villager. In the other, one of the villain's more disposable henchmen gets a dose of cauldron-born mist and dissolves quite messily.[[note]] A rare animation cel that depicts the latter scene can be viewed [[http://www.toplessrobot.com/blackcauldron.jpg here]].[[/note]]
** The King's VillainousBreakdown when the heroes shut off the Cauldron with Gurgi's sacrifice, leading to his army of undead falling apart. He loses all his cool temperament, and his normally pitch-black eyes turn RedEyesTakeWarning.
--> '''Horned King''': Get up you fools!! KILL!!
