Topic: What movies scared you as a kid?

I'm an 80's child myself and the movies that terrified me back then were these.

"Magic" (1978): When i was 4 back in 1986 watching this movie on video or cable, it scared me crapless especially that dummy whom made me afraid of dummies especially of my brother's dummy but now i've over come my fear of them at age 11.

"Making Contact (a.k.a. Joey)": Another evil dummy movie that terrfied me at the age of 5 watching it on HBO back in 1987.

"Return to Oz": At the age of 5, i rented this movie and the wheeled guys especially the witch's severed talking heads scared me.

"Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night": I saw this movie at the age of 5 and it was a terrifying animated movie when i saw this at a mall theater,  the scene with Puppetino the evil puppeteer turning Pinocchio into a puppet scared me crapless.

Friday the 13th and Hellraiser.  Pinhead scared the shit out of me.  I remember lying in bed one night on a Friday the 13th when I was really young. I was certain Jason was gonna come climbing up the stairs with a machete to kill me.  I wish I could get half as scared by a movie now as I did when I was 6 or 7.

There was not one single movie that scared the crap out of me nor gave me nightmares either.

Re: What movies scared you as a kid?

When i first saw chucky on tv when i was about 10, it scared me pretty bad.

Sleepaway Camp- When I was a kid, it truely traumatized me.
IT- Not a great shelf life but when I was 10, I was scared shitless.
Halloween- Scared me, gave me nightmares and made me turn on my lights when I slept. ( All because he was missing at the end...genius! )

Poltergeist II - I was fine until Coach threw up the Tequila worm into that... thing.  I couldn't sleep for like 3 weeks.

Close...

And you can even revisit that commercial here.  Still gives me the wiggins!

Re: What movies scared you as a kid?

Now I am dating myself with this selection, but when I was a kid back in the mid seventies, there was a show on called Creature Features.  It was broadcast late Saturday nights, after prime time, and it would show scary movies.  Now I don't remember how we knew it was comming on, but my older brother and I begged our parents to stay up late one Saturday night so that we could watch "Night of The Living Dead."  They consented, and watched the movie with us on our old black and white console TV.
It scared the Be-jesus out of us!  I will never forget that night, my brother and I were so scared that we watched the majority of the movie with our hands in front of our faces peeking out the spaces between our fingers!  But we didn't leave either.
After that I was hooked, and have been a fan of horror ever since.

Re: What movies scared you as a kid?

Cats Eye- didn't want to go to sleep
Monkey Shine - didn't want to take a shower

But if it wasn't for those two I probably wouldn't like horror films like I do today.

the poltergeist movies freaked me out too, espesially the one with the boy w/ braces and they wraped all around him lol what one was that?

Re: What movies scared you as a kid?

When I was a kid, I owned (and still have it) the episode of Goosebumps entitled, Welcome to Dead House.  It didn't scare the crap out of me when I watched it, but at night I would have trouble going to sleep cause I could get the undead town members out of my head.  That effect didn't last for long though.  Anyways, that's it.

Re: What movies scared you as a kid?
