Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

What movie scared you when you were a kid?

For me, there were four:

1) Jurassic Park 1: When the little kid is on the electric gate. I can't watch that scene anymore.
2) My Girl: When the bees attack Macauly's character. Can't watch that scene either.
3) Wizard of Oz: The Flying monkeys
4) City Slickers 2: (no I am not joking) the beginning dream sequence where Curly comes out of the grave.

What scared you?

The one that comes to mind is this little kids' movie called Babes in Toyland. The bad guy lived a bowling ball that was like a dungeon and the kids had to escape through the holes or something. I had a bad feeling about bowling for a long time after that.

Poltergiest. I was afraid to go near my closet.

Re: Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

good thread.

Wizard of Oz scared me, not because of the flying monkeys, but because of the munchkins! I hated them & to this day I still can't watch the film because of them! Same goes for the Oompa Loompa's in Charlie & The Chocolate factory!

Jurassic Park 1 scared me so much that for months I was convinced that dinosaurs were alive and were going to get me at night - the only thing that consoled me was that my sister slept nearer the window so they'd get her first so I might have time to escape! I've never told her about that!

The original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory terrified me in some places. That whole bridge thingiemabobber when they were in the boat was kind of creepy, with that Sluggy guy watching them. I don't know when I grew out of that stage, but for a while it absolutely terrified me!

The H.R. Puf 'n' Stuf Movie.

Allegedly I ran screaming from the theatre.

Yea that movie did the same to me as well. Especially when Charlie was in Wonka's office. The whole everything is cut in half thing kinda scared me... Along with how Wonka was acting -- not that he didn't have the right to not act that way... The kids were just a bunch of spoiled rotten brats . So he had the right to act the way that he did. But since I was so young when I first saw it, it kind of made me jump.

Ah, I've never seen the movie myself... but I've read the book and I can see how it would scare someone .

Re: Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

The Goonies scared the heck out of me! Oh my gosh I just don't know why. I haven't seen it since then, in fact I think I'll watch it once I get my little tv with the VCR player out of the garage. I think what really scared me what the guy who likes the butterfinger bars and the guy in the freezer.

You know I wasn't scared of it when I was little, but as an adult I think there are some really creepy parts.

I also had a friend that is still scared of Ooompa Loompas

I had a friend start crying at that part when we saw it in theaters. It took like 15 minutes to calm down! An older lady next to us gave her a hug and everything. we almost had to leave until she started laughing through her tears at the funny parts...the poor dear.

Re: Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

I was scared of Snow White. The witch scared me to death! I haven't watched it ever since. I was also scared of the Wizard of Oz because there's a witch. I have no problem watching it now, obviously. And the adaptation of Roald Dahl's book, The Witches, scared me too.

I just spotted a theme in movies that scared me as a child. And to think that I would grow up to love Harry Potter, a series about witches and wizards!

The Little Mermaid - I couldn't get past the shark in the opening. I forget how old I was when I finally managed to watch the whole thing.

Beauty and the Beast - Couldn't watch past the scene where the wolves attack Belle's father because it scared me so much.

Re: Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

This wasn't me but...

when my family went on holiday to the UK, we were staying at my Great- Uncle's house in Dudley (West Midlands). We were watching Poltergeist, and it was the typical English weather that night - stormy, with thunder. Anyways, I was sleeping on the couch that night, and the movie freaked out my little brother SO much (he was about 10/11.). When I woke up the next morning, I was plastered against the couch back, my little brother holding on for dear life next to me!

Um, but movies that scared me? I don't know really. The first time that I watched the Ring was scary, but I was thirteen then. Oh, and IT scared me. Clowns urgh.

Re: Movies that scared you when you were a kid?

IT, the movie, scared me SO much. I didn't even watch the full movie, but I just knew it was creepy.
My cousins love that movie, and when I was a little younger, they always tried to put a picture of IT under my pillow. Those were not good times...

What! Oh my gosh! Oh well you were a kid. Are you still creeped out by it though?

I thought Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was awsome when Iwas little and now! Gene Wilder was an awsome actor! He was pretty funny in it too. Too bad my DVD is broken.

To tell you the truth I was and still am freaked out by Johnny Depp's portral of Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It was the most creepy thing I have ever scene, but of course Johnny Depp is good at roles like that. Tim Burton is also good at making movies like that.

Little Mermaid was the first movie I ever saw in a theatre and I was climbing my mom's lap trying to get away from Ursula absolutely terrified!
