There are quite a few movies that scared me when I first saw them as a child...of course they don't have that effect now.  It takes a lot to creep me out now.  At most, some movies disturb me, but I can't remember any recent experiences of wanting to hide behind a pillow while watching.  biggrin.gif  Anyway, movies that creeped me out as a kid:

The Haunting (original black & white version...the opening monologue gave me such chills)

Night of the Living Dead (80s remake)

Fright Night

The Changeling (one of the FEW to still give me goosebumps, despite having seen it fifty or so times)

Creepshow

Flatliners

Another that terrified me as a child was a movie called The Children.

IT never scared me...I guess it's because I knew that the clown was Tim Curry, and I can't think of him without picturing Rocky Horror. :P   However, I don't really care for clowns as a rule.  I could have also really done without the giant spider.  Why does every freaking movie have to have a giant spider??!!??

Along those lines, I guess I'll add Something Wicked This Way Comes to my list of movies that creeped me out as a kid.

OMG!  This was the movie that I believe started my fear of closets and under the bed... To this day I'm still leary of closets and yes, all the mattresses in the house are on the floor.  I've watched "It" several times since the first time I saw it when I was 7 or 8, but the first time really scared the holy bejezus out of me!

eeeeeeeeeeew! ^^ at the head

What ever happened to Baby Jane ?,both versions were creepy but I think the Bette Davis/Joan Crawford  may win the creep factor award lol I think the Redgrave sisters did the remake.

The bad seed yeah the original .....her and her tap shoes.........poor gardener/maintenance  

Rosmarys baby stil disturbs me "Its eyes what have you done to its eyes" "He has his fathers eyes"  was quite a line but the whole neighbors into devil worship creeped me out more. Those were some creepy neighbors. huh.gif

I can remember the first scary movie i seen. It was an old movie from the sixties that came on television called The Birds. I begged my grandma to let me watch it. She said no that i would get to scared. Finally she gave in. For about 2 weeks afterward I slept in between my grandma and grandpa. I was terrified of birds after that until i got a little bit older. I also thought poltergiest was scary, I still think that movie is pretty good.


Thanks SilentWalker for the neat sig

Don't Look Back with Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie still freaks me out a bit, I love it. The wickerman has the same Effect except when i remember Edward Woodward in The terrible 80's show "The Equiliser". Its Just a Creepy Film. Actually Edward Woodwards name with out the D's Is Ewar Woo War ...now that is Creepy   Picture 483.gif

I don't know what the titles of the movies were...but there were two that stood out:
One was about a house with a bricked up fireplace (or was it a staircase?)  I don't know.  But the house had these tiny little shrivelled up people living...maybe under the staircase.  And the new owners unbricked it and one by one the little people dragged the new people under wherever they were (fireplace, staircase) until there was no one left.  I think the main character went mad because no one would listen to her when she was telling people what happened.  They finally got her too.

Another show was about a guy who suddenly grew an eye on his shoulder.  Bllllech!  I can't remember the rest of the show, but I'm pretty sure that eye was eeeeevil!!!!


I actually know what movie you are talking about with the eye on the shoulder. It is called "Army Of Darkness" My son loves that trilogy, and watches it over and over again.  It starts off with Evil Dead then Evil Dead 2 then comes Army of Darkness. The eye eventually grows into a whole other person, known as evil Ash.


Thanks SilentWalker for the neat sig

I think the first one is "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark", which I don't think has recieved any kind of special DVD release yet. Here is the IMDB page for it.

I think the film that frightened me the most is "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" which I remember seeing at a theater once. It was a very frightening picture.

I think it is funny, scary movies that really freaked me out as a child now look so lame. But I think the worse was the exorcist. I saw it at the drive-in aged 15 years old and slept with the light on for the week. It still freaks me out!

There was a version of the wizard of oz that i borrowed from the video store when I was a kid, and it had this part at the end where they were singing and dancing (wicked witch and munchkins maybe?) around a tree, I don't know why but it terrified me!
