Yeah Watership Down made you cringe in places (throats ripped out) but even at such a young age I remember respecting it for not sugarcoating the rabbits dying.

Watership Down was the first Smellathon I ever went to. My school went to see it at the Cumbernauld theatre.  Me and my pals were in primary 3 and scared when the 'General' appeared. The primary 1's went a step further with one boy shitting himself and several having to be led out by embarrassed teachers - niiice! After that the scariest films we seen there were the Railway Children and Donnie the Bull.

I accidentally walked in on the card playing scene in The Evil Dead when I was around 8, I ran a mile when he/she (can't remember which) turned round and was possessed!
Other films that really scared me as a kid were Dragonslayer, (I really did hide behin the cinema seat when the dragon came on), Clash Of The Titans (Medusa scared the hell out of me as did Calibos", and the bronze man in Jason And The Argonauts! Freaky!
I agree with those who mentioned Watership Down, Superman 3 and Return To Oz also, the latter two I saw in the cinema.

I saw the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland when I was four and completely freaked out.  At the age of 26 I still haven't watched it again

This guy should have scared me, I was at the right age to be scared, but for some reason I just thought he was great to look at.

Two-Face from Batman Forever completely freaked me out. I had to be brought out of the cinema.
Robo-Cop too. Y'know the bit where he gets shot to pieces at the start. Nightmares for weeks.
Other than that nothing really got to me.

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. 


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?


No, definitely Ray Bradbury Theatre, but it was Twilight Zone stuff in all but name. And yes, it was downbeat :- child is getting bullied and is screaming for his dad to save him and Shatner just turns and walks away, abandoning him to the ghosts. Don't remember much else, but i always stayed clear of jungle gyms after that.

An American Werewolf in London scared the shit out of me when I was ten - had to watch any kind of horror/werewolf movie during DAYLIGHT hours for ages after that!

Good times!

I thought in the end Shatner does take his son's place and has to re-live the torment for eternity? or something like that?

Y'know, these ones, like the ones who mentioned The Shining and the like, I can't really have sympathy for.  They're 18s for a reason, y'know! They're meant to scare the shit out of children. You wanna watch it, deal with it! I watched Alien when I was 8 - it's now one of my favourite films! I loved it!

Well I only watched The shining by accident but saying t hat I was well into my aliens and predator by the time I was 6 or so. They never really bothered me. I think the thread should have been called: "Horrific films disguised as child friendly that scared the hell out of you when you were a kid".

I know for a fact that If I'd watched Babe 2; Pig in the City when I was a wee'un I would have been catatonic with shock.

Aye, that does ring a bell alright, but i didn't really understand the body-swapping thing at the time. just the image of the child being abandoned by his father was enough for me.

I concur. Although this makes me realise that apparently it was only menacing looking animals that scared the bejesus out of me when I was younger. I think the scariest thing about it when you're younger is that you know you're not understanding it all. There's something behind the film you're too young to grasp.

Anyway to make myself sound a little more human, I was also scared by Robocop, as previously mentioned, and Blood Sport kicked off (excuse the pun) my still strong phobia of broken bones. I can see entrails in a film and not flinch. Show me broken bones and my knees turn to jelly. Can't hack the thought of broken bones.

Urggggh.

Has to be The Omen (1976). I saw it with of all people who should have known better my late Nan! I was 12. She was throughly engrossed and munching away on some fruit whilst I sat opposite her cowering behind a cushion. I was alot more religous and a beleiver then and boy the soundtrack freaked me out. I couldn`t get it out of my head afterwards and was terrified if it kept playing in my head something evil would happen and it would summon the devil. It sounded like devil worshipping music. Certainly one of the very best horror movies ever along with the orgional Shining and the Exorcist which thankfully I didn`t see until I was alot older.

While not a film, V had its moments, especially when that second baby came out. Was lying in bed shaking with fear after watching that lizardy abomination ermerge from its slumber...
