The giant, singing, venus fly-trap from the remake of The Little Shop of Horrors scared me.

I couldn't go near a plant for weeks.

I have two that really freaked me out. When I was little the critters scene where they're in the guys Easter Bunny suit really freaked me out. The worst one I didn't remember until a few years ago where I actually had like a panic attack seeing where my long time fear came from for the first time since childhood. It was in Phantasm II or III I can't remember now (of course). It was the part where the Tall Man's hand gets cut off and turns into a crazy creature thing then climbs up that guys pantleg to his groin. UGH! SO HORRIBLE!

I had a tough stomach, so even the goriest, most creepy horror films never really scared me, although in T2 Sarah burning with her skeleton revealed at the end of her dream where the world is coming to an end, used to freak me out a bit. Just the way the blast dismantled everything from her skin to her voice box, then you get this frightful visual of the bare skeleton clinging onto the fence.

I was 7 when my mom dropped me and my sisters off at the Joy Theater to watch Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1978).  Not appropriate for kids!  One scene that really got me was when the hairs on the guy in the mud bath reached out to grab Donald Sutherland's arm!  Other creepy scenes were the dart in the guy's neck, and the part where Donald has to bury a hoe in Jeff Goldblum's face.

The death Of Johny Depps Charector in the first Nightmare on Elm Street movie (Also Johny Depps first movie) I still to this day, have no idea how Freddy killed him to make his blood and guts liqufy and then fountain up from his bed to drench the room... Seriously I may not want to know. That whole movie gave me insomnia thought xD

Also disney movies were creepy... That is walt Disney for you... This may not be a movie, but when my dad brought back a stuffed toy off the Chessie cat from disney land. I Regreted having the Name Alice, Cause it's... staring at me at night, made me fear it was trying to eat my soul >_< dad had to keep it at his office.

I love the stuff that scared the hell out of me as a kid. Sure at the time it caused some psychological scars, but, eh, childhood is rough all over.

One memory I have is, I believe, from the movie Wired to Kill. It's an '80s movie about a nerdy kid who takes his revenge on some thugs. I really don't remember too much about it. However, there is one scene where the nerdy kid dismantles a battery and makes a white powder of its contents. Presumably it was battery acid, because that was a term that everybody knows and don't bother knowing the actual chemistry of batteries.

Anyway, the kid manages to trick one of the thugs into snorting it like cocaine. The next scene was the thug dead with white foam streaming from his mouth and nostrils. Scared/disturbed the living bejeesus out of me. I was so wound up about it that when several years later my cousin took apart a D battery to see what was inside it, I freaked out. Such was the scenes etching into my brain.

I gather the movie isn't in print now. I'd love to see it again, if only to see what my young brain was so freaked out about.

Maybe "love to see it again" were words too strong. I'd like to see it again, but not enough to pay for the privilege.

The part at the end of Gremlins when the Dad says, "You might have a Gremlin in your house."  The movie had terrified the crap out of me as it was but that just pushed it straight over the edge.  I actually started screaming, "NO!  NOOOOO!" and Mom and Dad had to take me out of the theater.  I made poor Dad thoroughly check the house before I'd go to bed for at least a week.

Also, the part in Who Framed Roger Rabbit where Judge Doom murders the shoe by dunking it in the dip bothered the hell out of me.  To this day, I skip that part whenever I watch the movie.

I had to get in on this because there are a couple of things that really freaked me out in movie terms as a youth.

Someone mentioned 2001: A Space Odyssey before, and I could handle the movie well, except for the very last scene where the Star Child sloooowly turns to look at the audience as "Thus Spake Zarathustra" blasts out full volume behind him.  FREE-KEE.  To this day, I'll watch the whole movie EXCEPT for the very end.

And this is kinda movie-related so forgive me if I'm out of bounds here.  1978.  The movie Magic.  Fats the ventriloquist dummy.  THAT TV AD.  Children of the Seventies, you know the exact one that I mean, don't you?  That is the most horrifying 30 seconds I have ever experienced as a youth in my life.  And if you don't know what I'm talking about, forget about me posting that horrific thing in THIS thread!  You just go and Google "Magic 1978 TV ad" yourself.. but don't blame me for any nightmares you suffer afterwards!
