Re: Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

I was terrified of The Last Unicorn. That movie is so dark for a children's movie (typical 80s)! There's this horrible "red bull", a harpy that kills a creepy witch, a drinking skeleton, and this scary king guy. Oh yeah, and there's drowning unicorns. It gave me nightmares, but now I kind of like it.

Really, only the Freddy movies (Nightmare on Elm Street) scared me.

Re: Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

Only one really comes to mind, and it's Tim Burton's Batman - well, really just Jack Nicholson's Joker. I mean, I've always been struck by the dark, brooding atmosphere of the whole film, but thanks to Nicholson, I just couldn't watch the film for so long, or see any pictures of anything associated with it. Even if I tried, the buildup to the character's entrance freaked me out, the anticipation and tension. Finally, at some point, I forget what age (I wanna say 9 or 10), my parents sat me down and made me watch it (I was a huge Batman fan overall), and I just...lost the fear. I now realize what a brilliant turn that was, and how cool it is that Nicholson's work freaked me out so much, because The Joker should have that effect.

Me too. I think I first watched some of them when I was 11 or so. I watched Halloween around the same time and it didn't bother me. In fact, I really liked it and still do.

Re: Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

The very last part of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, where the guy drinks from a gold cup, then ages really quickly. I couldn't watch that bit for ages when I was very small. The weird thing was I didn't have any particular problems with the ending of the Lost Ark.

A Christmas Story. I know that sounds weird, but that kid with the yellow eyes gave me nightmares.

And the part in The Princess Bride where Westley gets tortured - I had to hide behind the couch until it was over.

The opening sequence of Scream (with the delightful Ms Barrymore) is one of the better sequences of modern horror cinema.

I keep seeing people listing It. I must have seen a different movie/mini-series. It's horrible, but not horrific.

This movie scared me so much as a child also! It was very dark and pessimistic, and I hated the red bull, and all the misfortune that the unicorn encountered. I still don't like this movie, but it doesn't scare me anymore.

I really can't think of any other movies that scared me, my parents were really strict and I didn't watch most popular horror movies. (I still haven't seen Halloween or the Freddy movies, etc.)

I saw that during the 4th grade and had nightmares about it for ages. I still can't believe they showed that movie to us that young! Its a great movie (now that I'm an adult) but I think it scared a lot of kids!

Re: Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

Ringu, the Japanese original. I saw it at my school' film society way before it was well known outside Japan, and it scared me stiff. Any time I had to go into the dark room for my photography class I would get nervous, and because I had a TV in my room, it made it hard to get to sleep, all I could think about was that scene were Sadako crawls out of the TV. Yeesh, I still have horrible memories of that scene, the close-ups on her fingers, the guy's reaction, the sound the TV made, it was just terrifying.

Ringu scared me too the first time I saw it. As did the sequels even though they weren't that good.

When I was little The Little Mermaid used to scare me Ursula gave me nightmares.

Re: Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

When I was like 4-6 the Carebear movies scared me. I am such a wimp, but seriously I would leave the room whenever the villains came on.

As a teenager not many horror movies really scared me much, until I got pregnant. Once I got pregnant I got scared of everything, mostly because I would have really disturbing nightmares. So for the past 7 years I have pretty much refused to watch scary movies

Re: Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

The Empire Strikes Back. The yeti, Darth Vader, frozen Han Solo and Luke's hand gave me nightmares for a week.

Next time I watched it, I became addicted to Star Wars...

Re: Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

I wish this thread had been created years ago, because I've spent the majority of my life thinking I was the only kid who was terrified by ET! I had literal nightmares about him that made me go looking for my mom in the middle of the night... especially that scene when he's all collapsed and sick by the river or lake or whatever? And Elliot gets him to help get him home (I think? I've only seen it once, that was enough). I remember just thinking he looked like a pile of dead meat or something, it completely freaked me out.

Another one that terrified me was the live-action version of Alice in Wonderland, with the Jabberwocky. I would run out of the room whenever a scene with him would come on, especially that bit at the end when he's in Alice's house after she thinks she's returned from Wonderland. Just utter fear.

Chuckie scared me a lot, too, though I never saw the whole thing. My mom had started me on a porcelain doll collection, and the clips I watched of Chuckie had me terrified of those dolls for years. I remember I'd even talk to them and kiss up to them so that they wouldn't hate me and come to life and kill me. O_O

Ironically, I was fascinated rather than scared by the Chuckie movies. I have vivid memories of watching them when I was about 3-4, and I really loved them, they didn't scare me in the least. Simpler things such as ET, and such, well those did a good job scaring me.
