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

I didn't really watch many scary movies when I was a kid. Though when I was like 5 or 6, Sleeping Beauty scared me, but just the part where Maleficent lures Rose up to the spinning wheel. Also, I think E.T. scared me a bit.

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

When I was really young the movie Disney movie Anastasia just terrified me. Its the first movie that I can remember that I was even a little bit scared while watching. I've never seen the movie since.

Another movie that scared me was Vertical Limit when I was younger. The Fellowship of the Ring also scared me a bit when I was 8. I tried watching the movie but the Black Riders and the orcs frightened me.

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

'The Secret of NIMH' -- that monster was the scariest thing ever.
'Pinocchio' -- mentally scarred after the thing with the pirates (memory is a tad shady here)
'The Great Mouse Detective' -- scared me a little in the opening scene.

Wow, these are all animated. I was such a wimp.

Jaws was one of the great horror movies of its time. People often forget that Spielberg is quite adept at horror, it's just that his monsters are rarely supernatural.

Oh yeah, that movie scared the **** out of me! I watched it awhile ago, and it wasnt all that scary. But when I was little, I couldnt watch it alone. I had to have my mom watch it with me....

Yes, Jumanji used to frighten me also. What really got me was that Toys R Us actually sold the Jumanji board game, and I thought it was all reality and that it could actually happen.

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

I was completely terrified of G'mork from The Neverending Story. His scenes always had me hiding my eyes or shuddering. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjW30BiJ5gw

And yes, I'm still a little creeped out by him. But I love the movie.

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

There are some movies that still scare me now as an adult one that always creeps me out no matter how many times I see it, when, where etc is Silence Of The Lambs. Just so creepy *shivers*

I think I've already mentioned that The Little Mermaid scared me as a child but so did The X Files. The TV show of course. My parents used to watch it after I went to bed and one night I couldn't sleep so I snuck into the TV room and saw a particularly gruesome and disturbing part of the program. After that I used to get terrified by just hearing the theme music (which in itself is a bit creepy after all ).

The veloceraptors in Jurassic Park used to terrify me in that scene in the kitchen with Lex and Tim.

Okay, that is scary!

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

Oh, I was so easily frightened when I was little. I hated ET (when he gets sick and turns white ). Titanic scared the daylights out of me, and I couldn't finish Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi because I couldn't watch Han Solo and Luke Skywalker being tortured (it was a few years before I could watch the scenes with the monsters in Jabba's palace. )

Oh yes, I remember being scared of that one too. But I've only seen the movie about twice, so I had forgotten it.

A show that creeps me out even now is CSI when they show pictures of the inside of the body and how things go wrong (like blood in the lungs, etc). I remember not being able to sleep after seeing one episode of CSI.

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

I was always terrified of the Chucky doll, even though I do not recall seeing it as a kid. I couldn't even look at a picture of it without getting scared. Also, the "Hyde" scene from "The Pagemaster". It always freaked me out in that one part, even though I loved the rest of the movie.

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

1- Ghostwatch - A BBC mockumentary. So frightening, the BBC refuse to ever air it again. I support their decision.

2- Jaws - Led to a lifelong fear of water. The main reason I prefer showers over baths. I don't even like looking at the sea.

3- The Ring - Hate TV's displaying static ever since. Had me looking nervously over my shoulder at the TV for at least a year.

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

Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. I was probably 8 when I saw them, so I guess that's reasonable. I used to think the killer was in my bedroom.

Also, Ursula in the Little Mermaid used to freak me out. But that's probably because I used to be afraid of octopi (I think they're cute now).

I saw those around the same age, but they never got to me to, say, the point of nightmares. I did go as the Ghostface Killer a couple of Halloweens.

There's one Ursula moment in that movie that I find genuinely creepy, and that's at the end of the "Poor Unfortunate Souls" number, when the lighting changes, and she's cast in an orange-or-red-ish glow; it's great, really atmospheric.

Child's Play is like the flip side of Toy Story (or the other way around, as Toy Story came later). Toy Story's hook is, "Wow, wouldn't it be great if our toys came to life when we weren't around?" Child's Play's is, "Oh my God, wouldn't it be scary if our toys could come to life?!"
