Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

Haha The Hobbit? I won't ask. There was some movie I watched as a kid about these parents who were divorcing and the little boy went to stay with his dad, and the dad told him that he was gonna take him to disney in the morning, but instead he drugged him, poured gasoline on the kid, and lit him on fire. The kid lived but was badly burnt. I was so scared after seeing that. I couldn't sleep bc I thought my dad was gonna set me on fire. Took me to a shrink and everything.  LOL. true story.

I also remember watching The Thing when I was young and crying when the alien mutilated the dog. I was crying to my Dad saying "Daddy what's happening to the dogs?!?!"

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

The Smurfs creeped the hell outta me when I was a kid, not really sure why. I was fine with the Snorks however...go figure.

I also was creeped out by a movie called Deadly Eyes(?), didn't sleep for like three straight nights.

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

I remember the made-for-TV horror flick Gargoyles fuckin' my shit up as a kid.  I think I was maybe 7 or 8 when I saw it.  The bit where the Gargoyle creeps up at the foot of the bed gave me nightmares for -- well, I don't remember the exact range of time, but at least a week.

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

I was terrified of the crypt keeper my father was obsessed with him but I would scream anytime he was watching it

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

The original "In Search of..." with Leonard Nimoy used to give me the willies as a kid. (hey, I'm old)

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

Do you guys remember a show called "Spitting Image"? It freaked the heck out of me.

I remember seeing an odd puppet act on some tv show where it was a scientist and a robot both full size and one was supposed to be the puppeteer and the other the puppet and the act ended with the robot removing the scientist head exposing the robot as the puppeteer and sincerely scarring the shit out of five year old me.

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

As a child, ......I'd have to say Night Gallery.  Used to give me nightmares.

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

You remember a show called "Ghost Story"  which I think was a series based off a made for TV movie of the same name?   Midseason, or in January in the 70's when we had longer seasons, the show changed titles to "Circle of Fear?"   I used to really dig those shows as a kid.   A lot of cool concepts on there.

Twilight Zone

Outer Limits

Invaders

Star Trek

Thriller  - that Wolfie mentioned

Ghost Stories at Christmas that the BBC in the UK used to make

Dr Who - the old stuff not the new stuff. I hate that.

Out of the Unknown

Journey to the Unknown

Etc, etc, etc...

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

When I was really young I remember specific episodes of Are You Afraid of the Dark? scared me. I also remember being scared by X-Files too.

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

Are You Afraid of the Dark? scared the holy hell out of me as a kid.  Eerie, Indiana did, too but not as much.  I would love to revisit those shows now.  I think they're on DVD.

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

The Hitchhiker tv show on HBO back in the 1980s. It scared the hell out of me.  Plus the theme song still gives me chills and goosebumps lol.

That and Tales From the Darkside show.

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

The X-files, Tales from the crypt and darkside......not all the episodes only key episodes.

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

Just read through this thread and I am glad that I am not alone in being scared of Unsolved Mysteries. When I was a kid this was about the only show that truly scared me the music and that creepy guy coming out of the fog. I swear I never made it further then that I always took off to my room. My damn sister used to watch that show all the time

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

Tales From The Dark Side opening credits alone creeped the shit out of me!

Re: Which T.v Series Scared You As A Child?

"Beyond belief: Fact or Fiction" had a few creepy episodes as well.
