What movie scared you as a child?

I remember going to see SLEEPING BEAUTY as a child. When we got home that night, I was afraid that the evil queen was on top of our house as my dad pulled into the driveway. That movie really got to me!

Anyone else with memories to share?

    Hello Fellow Fear Fans:

   Being new here I'm not sure I should even say this but..ah, what the heck.  The movie that scared me the most when I was young was the original "House On The Haunted Hill," starring Vincent Price.  Though I was pretty young I actually saw (well, we could debate that I suppose) it at the movie theater. 

   I had just started being able to see "Monster" movies on TV, some of them hosted by the Cool Ghoul; Zacherley.  Anyway, I saw that there was this new scary movie out so I begged and pleaded with my sister to take me (she is 9 years older) and then to my parents to let me go.  At first they weren't so sure because I was so young (give me abreak, I was a mature man of 5 1/2 years).  I finally talked them into it and that saturday afternoon my sister and I went to the movie.

   I was all excited as we walked into the theater.  Little did I know that my excitement was about to turn into a terror filled afternoon.  The movie had just started, the lights of the theater dimming to just glowing embers.  It wasn't long after the movie started that I began to notice the louder sound of the theater made sounds a little spooky.  Then the wandering around the mansion while spooky music played made me a little fidgety.  Then, when the girl got locked in that room and screamed, well...that was it.  On the floor I went hoping that I could get away from that movie.  My sister said to get up but no way.

   I sayed on that floor until film's end and nearly crawled from the theater.  That was the day I learned about true "FEAR."  Deep inside, though, I couldn't wait to experience it again.   From that day forward...I was hooked.

   Have a Great Day!!!

Blair Witch Project creeped me out a little bit as a kid but that's about it. Oh and one of those Return of the Living Dead movies 2 or 3 (I think) had some scene where a guy's head was in the toilet and that made me afraid to use the bathroom. LOL, I can laugh about it now that I'm way older.

In the mid eighties my dad had a Beta player, for those wondering what the hell a Beta player is, well Beta was a rival to VHS tape, kind of like DVD vs. BluRay now, for those wondering what a VHS tape is.... Anyway, I still remember exactly what movies my dad had, Commando with AHNOLD, Top Gun, Rio Bravo, Cobra with Sylvester Stallone, and then there was a little movie called The Day After, about nuclear war... that and Children of the Corn, Im not sure how many times my brother and I started to watch those but got to scared, I must have seen the first half of Children of the Corn a hundred times between the ages of six and eight, granted to many this may not seem scary, but atmosphere to me is the difference between scary or not, often times scenes in broad daylight, or dusk or dawn, are more scary to me than anything in the dead of night, to me a kid in Indiana,watchin Children of the Corn and those brown cornfields and blue skies and preaching on the radio were more than enough to scare me and wonder what the hell was out there!!

  We were on vacation in a cabin in the mountains. While my parents were sleeping, my brother & me got up and watched "Don't be afraid of the dark" I have to tell you that for the rest of our vacation, I was afraid of the dark! I hear theres gonna be a remake of that movie. I'd like to see the classic again; just for old times sake?!           Staci_Annette

When I was little, Jaws because we would go to the lake all the time and my older step brothers would tease me (while I was learning to water ski) that Jaws was going to get me. When a Stranger Calls, I was just starting to babysit...Night of the Living Dead, I still can't go to a cemetary without thinking of that movie and looking around. lol  Willard, The Exorcist, It's Alive, Alice Sweet Alice...Most of these movies I watch now and can laugh...
