God yes, I'm glad I'm not the only one. Pryor can gurn all he wants, but that scene just ripped the humour out of the film. I refuse to let my son watch it yet for that reason (and also, because it's a bit pants).

I've never seen Hellraiser, but the video cover always scared me when I went to the video shop.

I'll go with that too. That scene absolutely terrified me when I was a youngster!

The scene in Night Of The Hunter where the preacher (Robert Mitchum) is stalking outside the house where Rachel Cooper (Lilian Gish) is protecting the children, and both are singing Leaning On Jesus.
It frightened the hell out of me when I was 13, and watching it late at night on my own.


That is my favourite Mitchum film of all time. The part where he chases the kids into the lake and howls when he can't catch the boat. Creepy as hell.

Ha, I nearly forgot about that scene. Even now I can't watch that bit.

Another scene that I still can't watch, is the ending of, I think, Haunted Honeymoon(I hope that's the right film). It is where you see a lovely figure walk down a road and the camera slowly moves in and he whips around showing him to be a (SPOILER) werewolf. Eeeeeek!

I remember attempting to watch Akira when I was about 10 years old.   I got as far as the first guy getting shot up by the police (about 3 minutes in) before I turned it off and was left scarred for years.    It took me about 8 years to finally pluck up the courage to watch it again!

The scene in The Shining where Jack is getting it on with the young woman in the bathroom that turns into the mouldy old hag who starts cackling.

I think there's a scene in one of the Warlock movies where a guy gets turned into a painting. Scared the shit out of me.

Also the scene in Creepshow where the guy turns into a plant. Yes human's being turned into inanimate objects scares the bejesus out of me.

Also, all of 'The Changling'

I saw Poltergeist when i was 10 or something and soooo wished i hadn't,.....it still to this day scares the shit out of me!! I can remember my mum having to sit in my room with me all night till i went to sleep. Actually now that i'm reflecting, it seems to be a rather fond memory!

Also, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street and The Nanny all scared me half to death when i saw them, ....The Howling would have as well but for all the tits and ass on show......it kinda took the emphasis off Horror for me!

Haven't read the entire thread but theres some good suggestions even just on this page. Ive got to agree with Return to Oz, the wheelers in particular terrified me.

I remember being scared as hell by Vigo in Ghostbusters two, especially the bit where his face stretches out of the picture and then snaps back into it when Akroyd looks.

Disney's The Black Hole. I just found the very notion of teetering on the cusp of absolute nothingness to be quite a frightening concept, and the crew of the ship with no faces under their masks.

And the shining. I didn't mean to watch this, but my loveley mum had recorded labyrinth for me one christmas (still one of the greatest kid films ever). Unfortunately she's recorded over the top of the shining and right after the credits rolled their was a brief moment of screen snow and then cut to Jack standing in an overlook corridor approaching the room (213?). The following scene with the woman in the bath prompty scared the breakfast from my bottom.

The ones i remember are obscure little numbers.

Horror Express (with Vincent Price and Christopher Lee), in which some sort of prehistoric monster comes alive on a Transsiberian Express, scared the balls of me when i accidentally seen a bit of it late one night, especially the bit where the monster creeps up on the sleeping children in their bunks.

There's also the unusual Long Weekend in which Mother Nature turns the tables on a holidaying couple, especially the bit where they are stalked by a dead sea-cow. Just too much for my little mind to cope with.

And there was also a horrible episode of The Ray Bradbury Theatre called The Playground, in which a child is bullied at a local playground. And it starred William Shatner - now that's scary.

When I was a kid I used to watch Poltergeist something like once a week with my friends, I think we were around 7 or 8 years old at the time, and we were scared shitless by the film, but that was the fun. I still think it's brilliant.

I hated this little fucker. Actually just looking at the pic gives me a bit of a chill.



And this one's on the graphic side, so I'll just post a link to it. The scene, and the build-up to it, where one of the paranormal investigators is munching on leftovers in the kitchen and suddenly sees the food as being alive with maggots also used to give me the creeps.

And this one, where Craig T. Nelson's character looses his cool and starts tugging on the rope tied to his wife.

Can't find a pic but the original Emperor in Empire.

The voice and look was far scarier than Ian McDiamid's Emperor.

Yep, this was one of the first movies I remember watching and there were parts of it that were just too creepy for little me to take. Dr. Reinheart at the end (when we see what a wack job he is) scared the crap out of me.



And yes, like you said, the crew in the background of the pic with the "Cobra Commander" style face plates were creepy as fuck. In fact, I still haven't actually watched the scene where the guy removes it (although I haven't seen it since I was a young kid).

I thought that was the Twilight Zone Series? but yes, that was bloody scary. Did it not have a really downbeat ending? ie Shatner's child was getting bullied by the ghosts of the kids that kicked the bejesus out of him?

Already mentioned that one. I hated that part as a kid. From the squelching chicken leg to the face ripping -nasty as hell.

I've already mentioned Twilight Zone The Movie, but is anyone else freaked out by the Joe Dante, Cartoon Boy segment with the sister sitting glued to the TV with no mouth?
That still makes me shiver.

Good call on Ghostwatch - I was 11 at the time and didn't sleep at all that night. The moment where the camera pans across the bedroom, sees a shadowy figure in front of the curtains, whips back only for it to be gone had me hanging off the ceiling.

It took me 4 attempts to watch The Shining as a child - I kept turning off when the twins started appearing

Poltergeist - everything about it. The clown doll, the maggots, the tree, the mother being attacked in the bedroom just when you think it's over.

Clash of the Titans - Medusa, but also the giant scorpions.

I love how the majority of films on here so far are horrors, so it's completely acceptable to have been scared by them, especially as kids.  I'm going to embarrass myself by revealing what royally disturbed me as a kid - not scared me, just deeply disturbed and upset me. Even now I get the heebies when I watch it.

Watership Down.

Can you blame me though? It features one of the scariest Generals in any films I've ever seen.

General Woundwort.....
