  • ^ Quite simply, WTF?

    Is that your reaction to Balje's eccentric spoutings or this whole question in general Willy old son?

    It was in reference to @M_Balje.

    The Witches.
  • Jaws.
  • Rosemary's Baby I found quite disturbing back in the day.
  • I'm hard mate so no film has ever given me any nightmares...

    Ok, Temple Of Doom. Mola Ram scared the sh*t out of me when I was little.

    Only one I can think of truly ... Psycho.
    I almost threw up after the shower scene and remained scared from this film for some time. I was about 9, I think, when I saw it.

    IT, Tim Curry scared the living daylights out me first in the telemovie and later on in the TV show version. He still does.

    I know that my aversion to clowns in general comes from Pennywise, and I know quite a few people for whom the same applies.

    You watch that movie at a very young age. I think I was nine when I first saw it. Nightmare city! :P

    I am all too aware about clowns. When I was maybe 6 I saw a television show where this clown was stalking this abusive husband. That did something to me. I am surprised that this was on network TV back then. From that time on I have been apprehensive about clowns.

    Jaws.

    The opening, the kid on the raft. The man on the boat. The head popping out the boat. And then Quint being eaten. All enough to trouble a young man for many years.
    For years afterwards I wouldn't venture into water other than a shower. To this day I don't go in the ocean. Mainly because I live in Australia now, and there are sharks in it.

    It was always the blood curdling scream that Quint gives as he's bitten in half that got me most. For years after, I was convinced there was a shark hiding beneath my bed so I wouldn't get into bed with the lights off! X_X

    I was old enough not to have nightmares over Jaws, but it was gruesome and it stays with you. I grew up in Florida, @Benny, also with shark infested waters. I never swam out over my head and as I got older I just stayed more and more on the beach.

    @OHMSS69, you are right - Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte was incredibly creepy!

    I grew up on Long Island, and we went to the beach every summer. I was 17 when I saw Jaws, and while it also gave me no nightmares, I became apprehensive when I entered the water. Being a good swimmer, I regularly tested the lifeguard's patience by swimming far enough out to get 'the whistle' but once I was just about there when some seaweed caught hold of me, and I came back in so fast you'd think I was Mark Spitz (you kids won't know who he was).

    I can actually recall two films that kept me awake at night.

    1) IT

    Strong fear of Pennywise the clown as a kid. Made me refuse to turn the lights off for a while. My parents didn't like that and I don't blame them but I couldn't care less about the electricity bills with a killer clown haunting me in my nightmares.

    2) Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade

    This may surprise you; however, I found the decapitation and the rapid ageing very hard to endure as a kid.

    The Gremlins, the boat ride in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, when Winnieh the Poo gets lost in this cave (or I think it was a cave) and he's like all alone, when they eat monkey brains and rip a guy's hart out in Indiana Jones ATTOD, etc. When I was a little older The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Ring and any other horror movie I've watched due to peer pressure. I remember watching this movie called Pay It Forward when I was very young and it didn't really scare me but it left me melancholy for days.

    Stephen King's It. Nearly put me off going to McDonalds.

    I just remembered! As a small child I watched a movie on TV called Alakazam The Great, a Japanese cartoon movie from the early Sixties, and the solitary imprisonment scene really did induce a nightmare or two!

    It's an unimagitive choice, now that it's been mentioned a number of times, but it was Stephen King's It. I don't have a fear of clowns, but there's something creepy about that story.

    I'd rather watch paint dry.
    I recall seeing The Blair Witch Project back in the day. And being told its really scary. Yeah....ooòooo. About as scary as a butterfly.
    Found footage films are not my bag.
