Tonight as you go to bed, think about what scares you, boogymen and things in the closet. Then turn out the light and stand in the dark for just a moment. Get in bed, and leave your foot dangling off the edge of the bed - just enough so that you might feel a hand come out from under the bed and wrap it's cold fingers around your ankle....

I was scared of the sounds of sirens because of that Roger Corman movie "Not of this Earth".  We lived in Gainesville, Florida and whenever I heard sirens my mom said I ran inside screaming.  Now that I have the movie I don't understand why it was so scary.

Here's another that just came to me. It didn't "frighten" me so much as it always disturbed me. No idea why, but the tom petty video "Don't come around here no more".

Even now when i hear the song it's like i'm getting some post traumatic lsd flashbacks or something

I feel ya on that Tom Petty video, Susan.  Love the song itself, tho'.

I thought of two other filmic things that warped young Dr. Kobb:

One was the scene in "Attack of the Giant Leeches"(`59) where the people are laying around the cave, too drained to defend themselves, while the leeches do their thing.  The rubbery leech-costumes get clowned-on in alotta reviews for this movie, but I think that, for the money, they worked superbly!  I recently watched it again, and loved every minute of it.

Also, when I was really little, one of my older siblings was watching "Invaders From Mars"(`53).  I was tiny at the time, but I recall the leader of the Martians, with the oversized head and the tentacle arms, gave me some wicked/evil nightmares that night!

Oooh, I just remembered another one.  There is a Jon Pertwee Dr Who story called 'The Green Death', involving giant mutant grubworm/larva things that ooze some nasty green toxic waste.  There is a scene in which these wriggling horrors can be seen behind the glass of a tank (or something).

I was really quite young when I saw that one on TV, and the thought of these huge maggot/larva/worm things crawling around the house, oozing their green slime onto the floor and windows was horrifying.

Come to think of it, Dr Who had a number of scary things that probably warped the minds of little kids.

Remember the part where Alice is a Cake and they're cutting her up and eating her?

That wasn't his only weird video though

I recall Mary Jane's Last Dance he steals a morgue and dances and eats with her and realizes she dead so lays her in the ocean and then her eyes open.

Alice is a cake... you're going to have to remind me about that one.  And Mary Jane?  Um, are we talking about the same thing?

He was referring to the post Susan made about the Tom Petty video.
