  1. Disney’s The Watcher in the Woods, one of the only Horror movies that Disney did back in the 80’s scared me to death for years. Rewatched several years ago, kind of corny lol

  2. Watched Silver Bullet on a full moon and my dad was outside banging on stuff and howling the entire time. It for some reason left an impression. Funny part is its so tame and I watched all kinds of scary movies at that time from Nightmare on Elm Street to Friday the 13th.

  3. Arachnophobia, watched it with a friend when i was little… shouldn’t have done that… now i jump at the sight of a big spider and at that time could not sleep for weeks, jumping at shadows and sounds al over my room

  4. Annihilator – got my grandpa to record that one when I was just a couple of years old. I was totally into Sci-Fi already in that time and the german title was…lets say…not as revealing as the english one. :)

  5. Child’s Play. My parents rented it after they bought me the My Buddy toy. I just happened to wake up (for water or bathroom…who knows) & go into the living room with said toy and watched the movie from the hallway where they couldn’t see.

    The next day I torched that toy in the driveway, just to be sure…

  6. Poltergeist. I begged my mother to let me watch it and she told me I would have nightmares. I promised that I wouldn’t. Finally she gave in and I was allowed to watch it. And I didn’t sleep for about a month. I refused to watch it again for years. It was only about 6 years ago when my wife finally made me watch it. It wasn’t so bad after all, but it took me a long, long time to get over it.

    • That’s the one for me, too. Watched it in the theater, which means I was about 9 or 10 at the time. Terrified me to the point that I still have never rewatched it. And I can’t sit in a room with static on the TV without feeling a shiver going up my spine.

  7. Let me see…. Something Wicked This Way Comes, The Ghoulies, and an episode of Hey Dude where they tell a story of a murderer who digs up from underground.

  8. Alien! I watched it on HBO while my parents were out on a date. We lived in a old Victorian house that creaked and croaked all the time. Every light in the house was off, and I was alone in my parents’ bedroom (because that’s where the cable box was). I was about 9 years old. I’m in my mid-40’s now, and to this day, I have a hard time watching sci-fi horror flicks.
