The thread about the Final Destination poster got me thinking about the things that scared me as a kid, and I'm sure we've all got a few moments that scared or disturbed us in days gone by.  For me:

- Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982).  The scene where the brain slug was fed into the astronaut's ear, inside his helmet.  Ewwwww!  That made me absolutely cringe.

Small | Large


- The Black Hole (1979): two scenes were nasty, the first being where the giant robot Maximillian uses his rotor arm to shred through some guy's stomach.  In a Disney movie, no less!  The second part was at the end, where Maximillian somehow merges with his human creator in a hellish landscape, and you can see his creator's eyes looking around furtively through the robot's eye slot.  The implication that I drew at that time was that he was trapped inside the motionless robot for eternity, only able to peer out from inside.  I have not seen that movie for decades but that scene was burned into my brain.

Small | Large


- Moonraker (1979): that movie was full of scary stuff for a very young kid.  Jaws with his metal teeth, biting everything!  People!  Steel cables!  Everything!  The thought of some gigantic, unstoppable man biting things was highly disturbing to me.  Although I do remember Jaws' girlfriend with the glasses being very cute, even as a kid, so that helped ease things for me.  Not to mention the nerve gas killing people inside sealed chambers!  James Bond stuck in a g-force training centrifuge!

I know I have more, but those are the ones that spring to mind right now.  Anyone else?

The eerie murder scene in Murder On The Orient Express.

The car crash scene with Leonard Nimoy in Baffled  ~ also the vision sequences. Buggedout

The corpse revival scene in Horror Express  Buggedout

I grew up during a civil war so I could pretty much see true horror for myself.

the first kill scene on the moor in American Werewolf In London. first time I think I saw a 'bloody death' on a screen. I was only about 6, my older cousin had the film on video and we watched it when his parents were out. gruesome to this day!

The opening to Good Burger with the talking and floating hamburgers.  Seriously.  That was some freaky crap.

The scene where the woman turns into plant food in Troll 2.  Still kind of creepy nowadays, but back then, it was downright horrifying.

Is that the part with the seemingly harmless ghost that suddenly turns into some snarling monster?  If so, that part freaked out my brother so thoroughly he had to leave the cinema and go home.  I didn't think it was that bad, but at his age I had already been freaked out by The Black Hole, the Wrath of Khan, and Jaws with his steel teeth.

I used to be freaked out by vampire movies as a kid, but in my late teens I came to really enjoy them.  It was in the time of those other movies that the TV version of Salem's Lot came out, and the mere concept sent me running to my room.  Some years later I was watching every single vampire movie I could find.

The transformation scenes in Demons (1985) - especially the "teeth" part - really freaked me out as a kid. When I watch it now, I just have to smile. I remember being scared of the last few minutes of The Beast Within (it was promised in the tagine). Smile

The scene at the end of Poltergeist, where the closet door turns into a giant throat.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
