Scariest movie you saw as a kid
Talking about the cringy movie moments made me think about the scariest shite my parents screwed up and let me watch.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers - that movie fricked me up for a while. I can still see Donald Southerland hissing in that end sequence vividly and I haven’t watched that movie in 25 years. I didn’t sleep for a week.

Alien - nuff said

Jaws - when the dead fisherman’s head popped out of the hull that scared the shite out of me. Another scene that was burned into my memory. I can’t remeber half the shite I did in college but can see that scene clearly from over 30 years ago.

Poltergeist - I still think this may be the scariest movie of all time. I still get freaked out if there’s static on the TV.

For some reason psychos didn’t bother me near as much as monsters or ghosts.

I’d probably laugh at this now, but as a kid I was fricking traumatized by

I can see that!

It’s amazing how vivid your imagination is as a kid compared to being an adult.

Now - debt, kids and job issues are far more terrifying than any floating vampire kids outside my window.

Ooh. Ooh. What a great topic! There are so many people on this board and the age differential is so broad that weirdness can only ensue. “It. Terror From Beyond Space.” 1958. The film upon which Ridley Scott formulated “Alien”.

re: Scariest movie you saw as a kid
The Egg scene from Gremlins gave me a couple of legit nightmares.

But in terms of real horror movies:

It
Poltergeist

And some film about an invisible slasher maniac in a high school. I caught part of that film and it messed me up.


The only thing on this list my parents let me watch was Gremlins

ET. That piece of shite scared the shite out of me when he screamed at Elliot. Ran up the stairs to my room when that happened.

re: Scariest movie you saw as a kid
All my dad watched were horror films. I was like a 6yr old watching all these films that scared the shite out of me

Scariest, at that time, were the exorcist, poltergeist and hellraiser.

When Elliott came across him in the corn field? frick yeah. I saw that, and the 4 year old me was running in the same general direction as he was back to my bedroom. From the movies I remember, it follows this:

Peter Pan (Loved that)
The Little Mermaid (Loved that as well, but later recognized that Ariel was a selfish whore)
ET (scared me)
Beauty and the Beast (First cinematic experience)

Probably 4 out of my first 5 memories have to do with watching movies. The one that doesn’t is my sister’s first birthday, where I remember her Barbie cake that I ruined.

The original Night of the Living Dead in black and white is some scary shite for a kid.

You were scared by the Little Mermaid and Peter Pan?

Man..my folks took me to Alien in the theater. I still don’t think I’ve recovered.

No, I’m saying ET was the third film I saw. Not that I was scared.
