      I was scared of a lot of stuff when I was a kid. Clowns scared me, and they still give me an uneasy feeling. Child’s play was pretty scary, but I have no idea why anymore. I also had a problem with E.T. too because he was and is plain ugly. But I think what worried me the most as a child and today makes me hate being out in the country at night by myself are aliens. Those creepy little grey bastards really upset me as a kid. If my grandfather would be watching a program about them and I just happened to walk in, I lost sleep for a week.

              The very first Halloween.Yes I know it came out in the 70's but the first time I saw it was in the early 80's.The two scenes that get to me is first the one where Jamie Lee Curtis looks out the window and you see Michael standing amongst the hanging clothing in the back yard.She blinks and he's gone.That was freaky.

              But what always got to me the most was when Dr.Loomis shot Michael off the balcony and he goes over to look and finds him gone.When you see that look on Dr.Loomis face,see that empty spot on the grass and then the Halloween music starts going...well lets just say it freaked me out.

                Gremlins 1 & 2 :oops: I know, it's kind of silly but I was just a kid. Another thing that scared the crap out of me was Michael Jackson's "Thriller".. I saw it in '91 at the age of 6... it still scares me today.

                  Thiller scared me too, but my mom would always tell how the effects and stuff worked and told me the blood coming out of some of their mouths was just syrup and other things. So everytime I saw it after that I enjoyed it.

                    You know what freaked me out, especially watching it alone was the t.v. show Unsolved Mysteries. I don't know why though, I'm guessing it's the music, the announcers voice and how it accentuated the stories being told. Freaky deaky stuff......sometimes.

                      OMG, I was just talking about that in my blog yesterday! I was watching Unsolved Mysteries even though is always creeps me out. The announcer was creepy. Worst was when they'd talk about people that were brutally murdered and then show their pictures and pan into the eyes and stuff. :shock:

                        I remember one summer vacation, I was around 6-7 and an older cousin scaring me with ehe movie "V" that was on, saying my skin was gonna come off. It actually gave me nighmares, parents weren't happy lol, though they laughed at the time.

                          the thing that scared me the most were those giant puppets that performed on stage at Chuckie Cheese.

                            this isnt a movie or anything, but after seeing something about tornados on tv when i was little, they scared me so bad...that they would destroy my house one day. we rarely get tornados in baton rouge, but i remember one night me and my brother and our friends were playing zelda...we were at the spirit temple, and suddenly this horrible thunderstorm started and there was a tornado apparently in our city...not close to our neighborhood but not completely far away either. being 8 or 9, it really scared me. for some reason i didn't want to play the spirit temple on zelda for a long time.

                                The scene in Poltergiest when the dork in glasses goes into the bathroom and starts tearing off chunks of his face and dropped them in the sink scared the hell out of me, and was just disturbing. ick :x

                                  Child's Play was mild to me when i was young, the only movie scarier than that was "Magic" (1978) with Anthony Hopkins, anyone remembered this movie?

                                  [/img]http://img.photbucket.com/johnlindsey289/Magic2.jpg

                                  This movie scared the hell out of me when i was 4 watching it on video in 1986 along with "Making Contact" ( another creepy dummy flick), both movies caused my fear of dummies back then but now i am not afraid of them anymore.

                                  Great flick! i recommend it if you wanna scare your kids and coming on DVD april 26th with the TV ads that scared kids back in the 70's.

                                    AAGH! Yes, it's very strange. For some reason, zooming in on old photographs of smiling people was always insanely creepy. Even worse was when they would put a single picture of a person against a dark background, and then use that computer software to show them slowly age...

                                      Jaws! That stupid shark still has me scared! It was and is the most influential movie I've ever seen. I went to Florida a couple years ago and couldn't snorkel cause i thought i would get eaten by a shark! On the trip I walked up a concrete dock to watch these guys that were cutting up fish throw pieces of them down to gulls in the water, only to see a 9-10 foot shark swimming under them and me!!!! My GOD, worst moment of my life!

                                        Hey all. Child of the '80s here (born in '77). New to the boards, but not new to the site. Love it.

                                        Things that scared me most as a kid? The two things that immediately come to mind are:

                                        The Incredible Melting Man. It was on television during the day while I was at my grandmother's house when I was around 5 or 6. That guy gave me nightmares for multiple years afterward.

                                        Superman III. Seriously. Well, not the movie itself, but the scene where the woman is sucked into the giant computer, and is turned into a robot? To a 6 year old, that was scary as all hell. And when she came out? She looked even freakier. The funny thing is, I watched this movie again a couple years back. It's so cheesy, it's hilarious. But there is that part of me, deep down, that was uncomfortable watching that scene. I found that fascinating that our fears still live on a little bit.

                                          Ok remind me never to see that Melting Man flick, it looks creepy to hell,I can't remember Superman 3 but that's mainly because Super-man never really appealed to me as a kid.
