      oh man thats an endless list... i was a little wuss as a kid... at my school, we would have assemblies w/ people puttin on a play every once in awhile, and i remember being scared out of my wits by the witch in hansel and gretel(sp?), and i was the ony kid cryin, so that made it even worse. then there was the part in harry and the hendersons, when they have him strapped to the roof of their car, and he "comes back to life". the whole movie return to oz scared the bejeesuz outta me, and it still kinda creeps me out. there was a commercial for those beeper things that old people wear around their necks around their house. you know, incase they fall or something. in part of this commercial, there was and old lady reading in a chair next to a BIG window, and it was dark outside. all of a sudden this guy dressed in black and in a black ski mask, walks by, stops half way, looks in, and then walks on. the lady screams, putting her hands up. that ruined me for life. i couldnt even handle half the rides at disneyland. i hated dumbo the ride, and i hated the whale in the story book land. i hated the people mover. i hated the pinnochio ride. i hated splash mountain, big thunder rail road, pirates of the carribean, and space mountain. the subs made me nervous. i could go on and on and on... ill be back w/ more...

          anyone remember this muppet show on in 89 or so, it was about this guy with a magic bag, and he caught death in it and then after awhile all the old people come and want him to set death free, so he does and from then on death is scaed of him and so he gives his bag to a man going into heaven and ask him to call him into the bag, and then the narrator say, but once in heaven there are no memories so he lost his bag and wanders forever.


          That scared the crap out of me. As with the return to o movie, those rollers, and this chokey movie.

              I was afraid of guns when I was in preschool. They scared me, a lot. When I got a little older, I was afraid of, as my mother put it, "being snatched by someone" if I didn't hold her hand :D

                    I loved horror movies when I was a kid. I watched the nightmare on elm street films, the child's play films, poltergiest, It, ect ect and didn't get scared.

                    The movie that scared me was Ghost. Yep, a romance film. But that guy on the subway and those shadowy guys were creepy!!

                    And the needle going into that guy's eye in Fire in the sky.

                    And the spokesman for glad has always creeped me out. I don't know why. Nobody should wear that much white.

                      i would have to say clowns, the dark [i would imagine stuff popping out], porcelain dolls [after watching that one episode of are you afraid of the dark?], and homeless people on the street [after one yelled at me & my auntie on the bus]. those things still give me the creeps sometimes, but today i do volunteer work with the homeless, so i'm not scared of them. :D

                        I've a strong dislike for spray paint, graffiti and the like.

                        I think it started when I saw the first episode of the old TMNT series. There's this scene where two thugs (possibly Rocksteady and Bebop before their mutations) completely spraypaint a wall. Then you see that they also spraypainted all over an old woman. She steps out of the shot, covered in paint and you can still see her outline on the unsprayed part of the wall. For some reason, I found that incredibly gross.

                        This was just the beginning. When I was little I remember watching a movie where a large family moves into a mansion. There's this giant white wall in the main room of the mansion and somehow, the family members peel off the white paint on that wall. Behind it was some grotesquely spraypainted visage of some demon on it. That night I couldn't sleep because the walls in my room are painted white and I was afraid that there were demons hidden beneath the white paint.

                        There's a scene in the old Simpsons episodes that intensified that fear. I think it was a 'flashback' episode where Homer and Marge are trying to buy their new home. They end up at a seedy house that's been taped off by a crime scene investigation team taking a picture of a chalk outline. Chalk outlines evoke a lot of fear from me because I believe they represent that person's last moments of life and that chalk outlines are drawn around bodies that died a violent death. The message "I'll be back" smeared in someone's blood adds more to that fear. It wasn't graffiti, but seeing that on a wall is a very uninviting sign.

                        I recall reading a news article where some inner-city residents were fed up with taggers defacing property and the drug junkies trying to get high off the aerosol fumes from spent spraypaint cans. I remember that one resident spent some nights perched on top of the apartment complex he lived in and took potshots at the junkies and taggers. While I don't condone taking that kind of action, I couldn't help but smile.

                        Another fear was of being run over by large vehicles, particularly battle tanks and especially steamrollers. There's something horrifying about being scraped up off the pavement after being run over by those things. Fortunately, rocket launchers and such give a single person the power to turn these mechanical monstrosities into burning hulks of scrap metal. It's very reassuring.

                          LOL! I pretty much echo that statement right there. Well, I'm not scared of clowns, but it definitely scared me back in the day, and upon purchasing it, I was pleasently surprised to see it was kind of a horror/comedy combo.


                          Tales from the Crypt always used to make my **** my pants. The intro to it (when he popped out of the coffin) often made me hide under my blanket in anticipation.

                          Media aside, I was always really scared of the supernatural as a kid. Like, ghosts for instance. Mostly, though, I was scared of aliens. I thought they existed. I always felt that if I watched a special on, say, Discovery channel or TLC, aliens would come and abduct me, in fear that I knew too much! I had a king-sized bed as a kid, and I always used to sleep right up against the side of the bed that was touching the wall. I felt that the farther away I was from the floor, the more likely it would that I would be safe from an alien that wandered into my room attempting to abduct me.


                          Oh, one time we were out at my grandpa's house -- he lived out in the country. I remember my older cousins telling us ghost stories. He claimed that the red lights of tours in the distant were really the spirit of a ghost of a woman who had died in a car accident while carrying a baby, or something. I don't really remember the details -- just that it scared the crap outta me.

                            ^haha

                            Pretty much all the things that scare me today: clowns, puppets, spiders, death. And old antique toys. And the dark.

                            Mostly weak group, but I am a quite sensitive person :wink:

                                My own personal boogeyman, Mr. Flowers, and creepy old Television sets with dials. The connection is, that pasty lookin mofo in a bedsheet would come out of my televsion in my dreams at night.....and yes, this is all my minds own work. He looked like some bizzaro cross between what I found out later to be a badly done trans and the wicked witch of the west, only with tons more wrinkles, some in some pretty nasty places. You seriously could not let me sleep before the age of 8, in a room with a television set, there was just no way I was going to sleep unless it was on and playing something soothing, like the Love Bug.

                                  Honestly?

                                  Back in 1990/91 or so, Kleenex made some cardboard dollhouse. My mom brought one home for my sister one day, and I just felt terrorized by it whenever I saw it. I can't explain it, just the look of it, I was scared of the damn thing. I never really could get used to it so we had to get rid of it.

                                  I haven't seen the thing since 1991 or 1992 and there are no pictures of it on the internet.
