    7 year old me, or 15 year old me? Don't remember any for the latter, but for the former it was Bambi. Couldn't get past where there was the fire and then his mom died. Fucking traumatic.

    There was this shark attack movie I saw on TV (not Jaws) as a really, really young kid (younger than 5 prolly) that terrified me, and has made me a little nervous of open water ever since. Last year, I was blown away to discover it was actually an episode of Baywatch (I am not about to acknowledge how I came to realize this).

https://youtu.be/0VeX-X2vOSA

Also saw one of those Romero zombie films (probably Dawn of the Dead) at a similar age (I had great babysitters) that also freaked me out. Also Killer Klowns from Outer Space when they're drinking blood out of the cotton candy corpses (same babysitter).

By age 7 or so, I'd been so traumatized by this shit that I'd gotten it all out of my system from then on. One of the reasons why I could never get into horror movies, since they never frighten or jumpscare me, and so there isn't much left for me to appreciate about them. (I love the rising tension and unseen dread in the original Blair Witch Project though. And Cabin in the Woods is obv. a classic at this point. I loved The VVitch too, though that wasn't really about conventional horror.)

    I don't recall being too scared by scary movies as a kid. What have always freaked me out are scenes that have a completely different tone from the rest of the show or movie.

Like the giant insect scene in King Kong (2005), which I recall being more of a pulp adventure. But then that fucking swamp worm...

Or the scene from the Donner cut of Superman 2, where Non kills a kid moments after the three showed mercy to his father. "He was only a boy!" "Who will never become a man."

But to answer the question, I remember nothing in cinema freaking me out as much as the Punky Brewster Halloween episode: https://youtu.be/pnsnOiGcN5I

    Yep...Jaws and Amityville. Also, The Other. I used to play with my friends, building forts in the straw bales...until I saw The Other.

    So, I grew up where Jaws was filmed and it didn't have the same effect on me
Nantucket and Marthas Vinyard was where I went to go play hockey or baseball
These waters didn't scare me....yet NOW...looking at the youtube videos....I should be scared of these waters
I went to school to be a commercial fisherman....what terrifies me now more than anything....is being out on the open ocean....I don't mean within land sight...I mean being out there
there are videos of Great Whites feeding on seals, in the same place I used to swim
Monomoy Island!

    I would have to go with Aliens, Scream, Jurassic Park.

Aliens was just scary all around.

Scream.. *okay.. ha ha scream matt.. really?* The first watch of this was great, intense and scary. Yeah this movie left me sometimes freaked out when I was home alone. Is there someone hiding in my house or lurking around the corner..?! Who knows lol

Seeing Jurassic Park as a young lad in the theatre was pretty scary, with the sound effects and such they really perfected it in that movie. I went to watch it with my sister and mom.. we ended up leaving early because we(mostly my sister but I wasn't far behind) were scared as fuck lol.

The Omega Man scared the bejeepers out of me at the age of 7 or 8. There was a special airing of it on New Years, at midnight, and I was allowed to stay up and watch it. I guess, because.... yeah, let's scar the kid for life... it might be a laugh.

Tell you what, though.... that was the LAST movie to scare the shit out of me. I don't know what it triggered in my head, but no movie has scared/scarred me since... and I even went on to make music videos out of the Faces Of Death movies.

    I think the scariest thing for me was an episode of the X-files. It was a two parter, the first part was early in the season then they finished the second part later in the season. It was about this guy who could squeeze through ventilation shafts and kill people. I saw it and my house had air ducts and it freaked me the fuck out.

Yeah. I think it was that "bleached out" skin and white eyes, as well as the fanatical devotion to "The Family".

Granted, I was only a kid at the time.... and I was up way passed my normal bed time.... but it was the '70s.... and if you've seen even half of the TV shows they had us kids watching back then..... you'd understand why we were fucked up to begin with.

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade that childhood for anything. But man, did they show us some weird shit.
