Night of the Living Dead. I seen at a Drive In when I was around 5. Just a little too much for a 5 yr old.
Id have to agree with an earlier post about Jaws. Seen it at the drive in as well. I am still not a big fan of the ocean because of it.
Scanners freaked me out also.

Watership Down.

It might be a film about bunnies, but it feels like it holds a truth about death which is both beautiful and horrifying. Had nightmares for weeks when I saw this as a child.

Movies don't really scare me now. However, I watched Wolf Creek a few weekends ago and it was just freakin' disturbing. I guess what made it so bad was that it was supposed to be based on actual events.

Speaking of Phantasm, part 2 was on Space Channel (Canada)last night. Angus Grimm was (is) pretty creepy. "You play a good game, boy".
Pretty cheesy but likable actors. I'd love to see a modern remake (original)with a half decent budget.

The scariest movie for me though was the original Tales From the Crypt (1972). People go into a cave tour, 5 get separated and each of 'their' story is told. Joan Collins is in the 1st part, kills her husband while her young daughter (who can't sleep) waits for Santa Christmas eve. After she kills him, she hears on the radio that "there is an escaped homicidal maniac on the loose". Guess where he shows up?
Scary stuff for an 11 yo. Way ahead of its time.

Now be honest. How many of you can truly being able to watch The Shining at night.
Yeah, it scared me too when I was a kid. Saw it again not too long ago, and it... sucked.

The Exorcist was, and still is, the scariest, but the one I remember most vividly as a bringer of bad dreams is a European movie called "De Lift".
Recommended, but stay away from the American version from 2001 (even though it's the same director); "Down"!

Now - not many (I'm not a horror fan, so really don't watch movies for the scare factor)

As a kid: easy. The single scariest character in any movie, any era if you're a kid has to be The Child Catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

OhmyGod, my sister and her kids were over for dinner a few months ago and as I was putting out cake and cookies for desert I called "CHILLLLL-DRRRENN!!!!" (which I have done to them since they were toddlers , knowing full well they are afraid of that guy!) My sister- who had never heard me do it before- shot up in her chair with a terrified look on her face and she said "ohmyGod, you sound just like The Child Catcher guy from CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG. That guy always scred the Hell out of me!" and I said "Me too!" (But watching it as an adult I now wonder why I thought he was so scary.)

I would have to say Children of the Corn definitely. I'm sure there were more but I can't name them off hand.

"The Shining" back in the day but I watched it again recently and nothing,no thrill at all.
"Nightmare On Elm Street" freaked me out and I have never rewatched it.
Now when I was really little mum was watching a movie (don't know what it was)and in a scene a face wearing an African tribal mask jumped up at a window and startled the people inside. Well for years after that I kept expecting a scary face to jump out at me in windows especially the small toilet window which you had to put your back to. It's strange the things that stay with ya!

To the second grader I was when they brought in the tape for a winter recess session, The Secret of N.I.M.H. was a very disturbing film. Having the spector of death hanging over pretty much everyone (and as it is literally in Nicodemus's ultimate case)throughout the picture is almost too much for a seven year old, and the last 15 minutes or so were almost too unbearable to watch; even today if I catch it on TV (which hasn't been for about 8 years now), I select carefully the parts I observe.

And if that wasn't enough on my wounded psyche, we then got to see The Little Mermaid once its VHS release hit stores, and I was practically in mental fits when Triton blasts Ariel's grotto to pieces. Certainly prejudice and poor anger management skills aren't something you expect from a good guy, especially one who for a brief moment appears to be borderline insane (so who can blame Sebastian for feeling immediate guilt over having blurted everything out?). It was years before I could bring myself to watch that part in full. The rest of the film wasn't easy either; as noted in other threads, Ursula's polyping habits can be uneasing to witness, particularly when Triton allows it on himself for redemption for his actions, and I still have nightmares on occasion that a large dark set of hands will yank my voice out of my throat if I'm not careful.

Actually, The Secret Of NIMH never scared me; in fact, I became obsessed with it for a long while. [Big Grin] I was, however, afraid of The Little Mermaid for a time (Ursula was to blame), but I eventually got over it.

But the one movie I love more than anything now, The Great Mouse Detective, was super-scary to me when I was little; couldn't watch it for over a decade. (I must admit--Ratigan & Fidget are the creepiest animated villains in history!)

the movie ghost scared me so bad as a child. especially when demi moores dead husband goes inside whoopi. the whole movie was just to much for me to comprehend as a child. i still to this day havent watched it. and iv never been able to listen to the song unchained melody. just recently put it all together...brings back bad memories or that creepy movie.

also this scene from dumbo really freaked me out too, i think dumbo was dreaming or somethings and all these wierd colorfull elephants were dancing and singing all over the place. creepy!!

Why is it that everyone I know is scared of the Pink Elephants scene? *glares in mock annoyance*
