LZ.Com Halloween - movies that scared you as a kid?

Recommended Posts

Yeah, excellent movie, and the fact that it was made for TV is incredible. Tim Curry just owned that movie.

I seriously started laughing when I saw this pic! What a stupid looking clown that is! I personally have never been fond of clowns! It didn't creep me out one bit!!! :hysterical: :hysterical:

This one scared me as an adult even though a friend gave away the ending before I'd even had a chance to see the movie.

I didn't see that until I was in my thirties and it still sent shivers down my spine. Good film!

i do recall just seeing the commercial on tv for the exorcist as a kid and that scaring me quite a bit........so i could not sleep......yeh

The ads for "The Exorcist" and "Beyond The Door" scared me as a young child too. The film "Legend of Hell House" also scared and intrigued me as a child.

I love "The Omen". I have parts I, II and III in DVD form! My mom and I have seen it heaps of times together! It doesn't scare me at all! biggrin.gif

I've read all the Omen books and seen all the movies -- love them. The original Omen was one of the first books I ever read. (Btw, IMO the clown in the film "It" is great, but the book "It" is even better.)

Also not Halloween, but Magic.

Ventriloquist dummies have always creeped me out, and this movie just reinforced my fears

Salem's Lot

1979_salems_lot.jpg

Yeah that was a bit check the windows are locked time.!

As a kid I think,

Don't Look Now (1973)

The Haunting. (1960)

Also for some reason The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1949),when the Horseman shows up, all had me having a uncomfortable night sleep.

Oh baby, Salem's Lot scared the crap out of me as a kid. Best vampire ever! Never bought into the whole glamorous Anne Rice & Twilight vampire storyline. Aww, poor, immortal, beautiful, preternatural vampires. Nope, the downright animalistic, creepy as hell, Nosferatu type is what I like, and what scared me as a kid.

When they redid the vampire story in 79' with Frank Langella as sexual vanilla putting the moves on the ladies, it was all downhill from there.

The Exorcist & Omen were also underwear soilers...saw them both when they first came out in the theatre. I was only five in 73' when The Exorcist came out, my brilliant cousin (the one who took me to my first Zeppelin concert in 77') thought this was a good idea. I could not sleep for a month and I had no clue what this 12 year old girl keep saying and why she kept stabbing herself in the leg (???) with the crucifix. I was eight when my brother and I snuck into The Omen, another creeper. You see when I was a child up until I was well in my teens I was very religious for some unknown reason. My parents did not believe in church and thought all religion was just a money grab, but for some strange reason I was drawn to the church and would go with neighbors on Sundays. So, anything with a demonic, evil theme would scare the shit out of me. The whole idea of possession was beyond horrible to my little mind.
