I forgot to mention, Red Dawn. That movie really made me shit my pants.That was the first time that i realized what could happen if America lost a war with another country. I was seeing Russians chinks and japs paratrooping down. I was scared to death man. Yeah, Red Dawn messed me up more than any horror movie.

Chucky scared the crap out of me...I was staying the night with my best friend and she had one of those dolls...it was staring at us from a high shelf...That damn doll ended up sleeping in a bathtub a wing away from her bedroom...
And Nightmare on Elmstreet...I don't know anyone who was not scared of that. I am excited to take my child to see the remake and see if it scares her the way the original scared me!

I can't remember what movie it was I was only 6 wwhen I watched it but my stupid babysitter was watching it and he didn't want to turn it off even though he wasn't supposed to be watching me but all I think it was called poltergeist or something but I remember heads falling from an oven and people screaming and I remember crying and running to my room.
That terrified the crap out of me. I had nightmares about it for about a year and it sucks cause now I wanna know what the movie was but I cant find it.

Dito, it was "A Nightmare on Elm Street: Wes Craven's New Nightmare", it was the first ever horror film I watched and it was at a sleepover, I was still in Primary School so I guess i may have been 10 years old?
But I musto had to sleep with the light on for about a year afterwards, I was shit scared.
It may have been a few years later when I saw the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I too also thought it was so real, YOU felt like you were being chasewd through the woods. I actually couldnt walk home myself that night haha.
Nowadays, I LOVE horror films, I cant remember the last time i was scared by a flick.
I am in love with Freddy Kruger now and worship his movies, they are hilarious.
Discos - once upon time I was a little scaredy-cat

NOES scared the hell out of me as a kid. Ghostwatch too. But the one that really scared me as a child was Psycho 2 I saw it when I was about 6 and just couldn't sleep. Incidentally, I watched Ghostwatch a couple of years ago and it is quite poor but as a child I was terrified,
I saw "Trilogy of Terror" when I was like 4 years old and I'll never forget that doll sticking the knife underneath the door. That freaked me out. The desire to kill so unsatiable. Anyway, it was inappropriate for a 4 year old, I guess.
Also, there's an Amazing Stories episode where a guy kept seeing something that looked like Darkman in the mirror, and everytime he looked into a reflection the creature would get closer and closer to him. That FREAKED my little brain out when I was a child.... Had me not wanting to look into the mirror for ages..... in all honesty it's still kinda stuck with me.

As a kid the two horror movies that scarred my imagination were Poltergeist & The Amityvile Horror.
Poltergeist because it happened in a normal everyday suburban house & family.
I remember as a kid, late at night, I stare intently at the kitchen table utterly convinced that if I took my eyes off them, they'd start moving & piling on top of eachother.
The bit about Amityvile Horror that scared me the most was the room they discovered in the basement that was painted completely in red, supposedly where the killings were done.
It didn't help that my family had just moved to a new place that had an outhouse in the back. The previous tenents had painted the interior of the outhouse in red. I was 7 years old at the time...WHO THE HELL PAINTS AN OUTHOUSE RED?!!?
