Do you mean as in "cower down on the floor, behind the seat" scares? Then I have two of them.

"The Fly," when Patricia Owen pulls the sack off of Al "David" Hedison's head, which I saw in the theater.

And "Atomic Submarine," when the Cyclops, or whatever it was, made its first appearance, which I saw on television.

Back when I was 9, my grandfather rented "Don't look Now". I watched the whole movie (bored out of my mind), and at the end when that old lady? Dwarf appeared, I couldn't get that face out of my head.

 Buggedout When I was about 5 or 6 my great grandmother would let me watch Mothra. I used to get these weird nightmares about a giant moth living in our cross-space. I never fully recovered from that until I was ten, when I realized that, if a giant moth monster ever did attack, it was just as likely that the power rangers would come and defeat it.

i was 4 or 5 around when the second childs play came out (90? 91?)( i know im a youngin) and those goddamn my buddy dolls were still in production (they still showed commercials and stuff) anyway chucky used to scare the s**t out of me, and i can remember one time in particular i was sleepin with my mom on the couch and i woke up to none other than chucky's face laughing at me on the tv screen and i f**kin freaked. i woke my mom up yelling desperatly to change the channel. i dont know who was more scared me or my mother  BounceGiggle

I'm pretty sure everyone who was born in the past twenty years has gone through a faze when Chucky terrified them. I know I certainly did.

When I was growing up, that part with the evil clown doll in the kid's room in the 1st Poltergeist scared the living sh*t out of me.

The "Father's Day" and the "Crate" stories were nowhere as bad as the Cockroach part of Creepshow

The biggest scares I can remember came from 2 really bad movies, I used to go alone to the Saturday matinee at the local theater, I was about 8 or 9 when I saw these movies. The first was Teenagers from Outerspace, silly title, silly movie, goofy looking monster crawdad thing, except at one scene the teenager has this thing in the back of a bobtail truck and a hobo decides to get in and sneak a ride, didn't show what happened to him, just got to hear loud screams and then this cracking popping noise that I assumed were his bones breaking as the space monster tore him apart. The second was Wasp Woman, it wasn't the title character that scared me, it was the alley cat the mad scientist tested his formula on, when he entered his lab and the cat/wasp thing attacked him it scared the daylights out of me. I've seen this movie several times since then and actually the attack was not that spectacular but as a youngster I could really get into these movies. Both of these made the walk home in the evening something to be remembered.  BounceGiggle

It's amazing,that these things scared us back in the day.Kids nowadays are so overwhelmed with violent images on TV, what scared us is totally incomprehensible.Even as late as1982, I saw the BEAST WITHIN (1982) at a movie theatre, and the transformation scene where the kid turns into the giant bug-eyed monster,freaked me out( I was 20). Years later,watching it with my son,who was 10,commeted on the very same scene-"Geez,dad,thats so fake."

I'd say the movies that have given me the heebie jeebies (or outright scared me) would be:

1)  Prince of Darkness.  Saw this one on HBO one night, and the scene at the end, when the guy is reaching towards the mirror, I couldn't go near a mirror in a dark room for days.  Had to reach one arm into the bathroom, turn the light on, all the time expecting to feel something grabbing my arm....

2)  Jaws 3 (yeah, I know)  I was probably 12-13 when this came out.  Hid behind my knees in the theater seats for some of the shots.  Now, just like the rest of the world, I find it hilarious.

I've never watched a lot of "horror" movies, and my parents wouldn't let me go to see them, or take me to see them, when I was a kid....

The creepy gremlin on the wing in the Twilight Zone Movie.  Especially when he does the "no no no" finger wave when Lithgow's character tries to shoot him.

Poltergeist.  The tree.  'Nuff said.

(In a lesser vein, there also was the opening "moonlight swim" from Jaws...still creepy to this day...and, though I was barely a teenager when I saw it, the nuclear detonation scene from The Day After.)

Even though it's not necessarily a "scary movie", I always had to close my eyes during the "get her" part in Ghostbusters.

 Question I can't think of the "get her" scene.  Is that the very beginning when they meet the librarian ghost? 


The first real scary movie I watched was Nightmare on Elm Street.  I remember having bad dreams where Freddy's long arms would stretch out from his body and he would walk down the street towards me. 

Also, the scene in Pet Semetary when the little boy slices Herman Munster's achilles tendon and then opens up his cheeks for good measure.  Ouch!
