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

The Shining had me in a tizzy for a long time, and Psycho. But other than that, I never ever really liked the fear genres.. I never quite got along with them because films need a sense of realism before I can appreciate them. The warped tones of the two mentioned got to me badly- and also, Cujo was pretty nasty too. But things like The Exorcist etc, they never scared me.

You're kidding! I still can't watch that film. Mind due may be it's not so much the film itself; I just know my imagination will likely work overtime once I switch the lights off to go to sleep.

The People Under The Stairs. It's not that scary I guess but some of it is creepy.

Witchboard. It's the movie with the Ouiji board.

IT. I found the first half to be pretty scary, the second half when they were adults was just okay. I was bummed when he transformed into a big spider, kind of a let down. I heard the director of this movie didn't like the ending. He likes King but thinks he doesn't know how to end a story well, at least this one.

Ahhh me too! Other than that, like you Stephen King's IT, scared me, I don't think I've ever been able to make it through the whole movie.

IT was a interdimensional beasty whose form as a spider was the closest thing the human mind could accommodate. A bit hard to put into film.

Village of the Damned. The original one isn't scary, but the 1995 version scared the bejesus out of me. I used to have such bad nightmares.

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

I remember The Dark Crystal scaring me when I was a kid because of the skekzies or whatever they were called. I thought they were really creepy. And then when I was about 14, I went to a friend's birthday party. We watched IT (the version with Tim Curry in it) and after that, I was afraid of clowns for months.

Halloween scared the pants off of me and still does. I wasn't necessarily supposed to be watching, but my dad was watching it and I was peeking at the screen. I regreted it.

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

Sleeping Beauty! It was and still remains one of my favourite disney movies but just seeing the fireplace disappear and then Aurora going up the stairway to touch the needle! *Shudders* The music for that scene really didn't help either. Still can't watch it today :|

Same here! Haha, I used to freak out completely.

Salem's Lot...really really scary! I still can't get over it!

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

Alice In Wonderland. I've only seen it twice in my entire life; when I was 4 and 5. I can't remember it to much, but it had something in it that scared me enough to never watch it again. I imagine now it wouldn't be as scary if I watched it, but I'm still not sure if I'd want to. The bunny that was late for a party and always repated it (or something like that I can't remember), Alice not being able to get home, and everything in it I just didn't like it and it scared me.

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

Gremblins freaked me out. I remember I would always check inside my closet and anywhere where I thought a gremblin might be and when I slept I would pull the covers over my head and sleep in the middle of my bed. Now when I watch it, I love it. E.T. used to scare me a little bit too.

Jumanji used to scare me. Especially when the boy cheats and turns into a monkey!

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

Nightmare Before Christmas.

Never got past 5 minutes into the movie, because the opening song scared me so much. (You know, the monsters dancing and being "scary")

Then, actually, in 2008, I watched Nightmare Before Christmas (because a lot of my friends love it, wanted to see if it really was "good"). And to my surprise, i loved it!

It's now in my top 10 favorite movies. I'm glad I got the courage to watch it, because for 12 years, I never watched that movie, which I regret, because its sooo awesome!
