Phantasm scared the sh!t out of me when I was a kid. I swear, I had nightmares for a month. That Tall Man sure was a freaky thing. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the original) scared the crap out of me too.

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.

Hmm... Halloween 4 did a number on me way back when. Just watched it today, and it almost had the same effect.

Children of the Corn was one of the scariest. Also the Stuff was pretty scary as a kid.

Have to say that An American Werewolf In London scared the crap out of me as a kid and couldn't watch it till i was much older. The part when Jack gets ripped apart at the beginning on the moors. I think it was more his screaming that did it. It sounded too realistic!

And Halloween as well. Especially the shock at the beginning when you see its Michael as a child that kills in the beginning!!!! But nowadays i love horror!

Jaws has to be a movie that still gets me scared. Such a great film and it still holds up. Even though they are old fiilms, still the freaky ambience in films like the Shining, the Omen, Poltergeist, and the Excorcist still gets to me.

I didnt really like CHILDREN OF THE CORN (Dont even get me started on the sequels) but, yes, some of those kids were damn freaky! Whoever casted that thing gets a big round of applause!
(They had on BRAVOS SCARIEST MOMENTS the guy who played Malaki (Courtney Gaines) saying that THAT was the first movie he was ever in.

Poltergeist and The Shining freaked me out as a kid...

Also, Goonies and Gremlins sorta scared me as well. I had come across both movies on HBO, and the scenes that were playing at the times I first put them on were some of the creepier parts of the films. With Goonies, it was when Chunk first meets Sloth. With Gremlins, it was when Billy's mother was alone in the house, fighting off the gremlins.

I can't say that any modern movies scare me, but the thought of watching VH1's Totally Awesome for a second time gives me the willies...

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.

Precisely. I didn't include it above since I was 12 when I first saw it, but I went home from school that day shivering quite a bit. While Henson deserves lots of praise for trying to break out of the family friendly stereotype with it, you can understand why it didn't have a great theatrical run.

the last unicorn was creepy as a kid and it still disturbs me that my parents rented it for 7 year old me. strangely enough, i could watch nightmare on elm street and the exorcist without flinching, but when 'the red bull' chased all those uincorns into the sea and all the waves were actually unicorns cresting...i had to cover my eyes or run out of the room.
