I always hated the scary episodes of any show and I still do. The only movie that you mentioned that I saw as a kid was Raiders of the Lost Ark. The creepiest show I ever saw was Courage the Cowardly Dog. Heck, I rarely saw PG-13 movies until I was 10 or 11. I could NOT imagine your childhood. O.O The only movie I can’t think that scared me as a kid was the Triplets of Belleville. The silence. The bulging eyes (similar to your honorable mention). The villians. To this day, I CANNOT see that movie. It scared… Read more »

Oh man, I could go on for hours with examples of this stuff because I was such a pansy as a kid. Ironically I love the horror genre as an adult, but back then probably due to an overactive imagination, I was fucking scared of everything. Also, entertainment deemed suitable for kids was a little more risqué back then than it is now I think. Off the top of my head some examples of shit that terrified me, Large Marge from pee wee’s big adventure, not to mention the evil laughing clown when his bike is stolen. I had major… Read more »

Judge Doom…. “I TALKED. LIKE. THIS!” Cue tiny me throwing a blanket over my head.

I was a huge pansy as a kid, and ironically, I’m more into horror and scary stuff today than I was as a child (not super comfortable with everything in the genre, like anything Uncanny Valley for example, but I’m pretty good now). Segwaying from that Uncanny Valley example I gave, Goosebumps scared the shit out of me as a kid. Slappy the Dummy always scared me the most. I can remember when the Goosebumps theme song would start and they’d quickly flash to his face, I’d start crying and freaking out. I got more into the books in middle… Read more »

As a kid, that episode of Boy Meets World freaked me the hell out!

One scary memory from my childhood was a movie in which a computer was killing people. A woman was dictating something, and when she said “breath” the computer printed “death.” She tried to correct it, and it kept doing it. Then the lights started going out, and she ran down a long hall with the lights going off behind her. She got in an elevator, and the door closed on her and cut her in half. I don’t know the name of the movie, though.

Funny, horror themed stuff never really bothered me that much, probably because I’ve never really exposed myself to that much horror; up until around mid-adolescence I only ever watched comedies and cartoons, and I was too old for Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark? (I’m closer to the You Can’t Do That on Television/Danger Mouse/Turkey Television era of Nick), so I didn’t watch them except for bits and pieces. I hated clowns as a kid (but for me it was more disgust than fear) and I was a tad freaked out by Ralph Bashki’s Wizards the first time… Read more »

I think the first Non-Horror movie that scared me was “Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade” when they are in Paris down in the catacombs where they find the tombs of the dead Crusade soldiers and the Nazis flood and fire them out so the tombs are over turned and start floating along the water. Creeped the hell out of me when I watched it as a little kid.

Oh God, Fire in the Sky. You know, allegedly “based on a true story,” I thought it, and all “alien abduction” stories for that matter, was complete bunk. For some reason, despite my cynicism, I kept watching. And I tell you, in spite of my personal opinions, I had months of sleepless nights after watching this! One of the most effective horror movies, whether or not that was the intent. And I saw it as a [young] adult!

Holy cow, I need to see Fire in the Sky. I had similar experiences with seeing Psycho and Raiders as a kid and loving the Halloween episodes of various shows. My traumas came from sneaking things or when a late night movie came on after the news and my dad didn’t realize because he was working hard from home to send his kids to college and we really should have been in bed. A scene from one of the Leprechaun movies stands out, in which he sawed a dude in half. Gave me nightmares. Something from one of the Chucky… Read more »
