What movie scared you most as a child?
What movie? Why? Do you remember a specific moment or instance where you were afraid well after watching the movie?
I've been a horror fan from a very young age, I've watched all the slasher movies, ghost movies, zombie movies, you name it. But the one that got me when I was young (and you're probably going to laugh) was Robocop. Not the whole movie, just the scene near the end where the bad guy gets hit by a car and then into (atomic waste, acid, ???) His skin is all melting off and he's walking around yelling "help me, help me" then he gets hit by a car and disinigrates.
I remember being in the shower days later and just knowing that that melting freak was outside the curtain. Scared the heck out of me for weeks!
I remember being terrified of the witch from The Wizard Of Oz lol
I watched the original, BBC production of Quatermass and the Pit, from behind the settee, when I was about 10. The really scary bit was when the man ran out of the house to the church, fell over in the church yard and the gravel started to undulate.
i wasn't actually a child at the time but Jaws is the movie that i would say scared me the most.
They came out about the same time (late 70s I think) and both terrified me . . . The original Exorcist and the original Amityville Horror
Being English it was doctor who, yes I was one of those that hid behind the sofa, classic, even hammer house of horror did not bother me as much.
Totally Indian Jones, my dad use to watch it and I think I was 7 when I saw the part where the kid tells Jones to cover his heart when the cannibals are going to take his heart out. I still hate that part, oh and with eyes in the soup!!!
Bambi I thought someone had it in for me when I was forced to watch that movie as a kid.
Stephen King's 'It'. I watched it for the first time when I was 6 and was afraid of clowns for a really long time, until I found out that It was just Tim Curry.
Silly Tim Curry.
Now the only "horror" movies I watch are the dumb ones - like the Evil Dead series.
The Birds. By Alfred Hitchcock. Early 1960's. Seeing all those birds attacking human beings.
Stephen King's "It" Got me when I was little and I still won't watch it to this day!
It was a tie... the flying monkeys from "the Wizard of Oz", and Freddy Krueger stretching his arms out to scrape the walls of that alley... but I was like, 6 at the time, lol.
Wow reading through the answers really brought back some memories of great horrors that gave me the creeps. I must say some of the best are IT, Friday the 13th, Jaws, The Exorcist, The Omen, The Shining but all of those seem tame compared to this recent movie which I had to turn off because it was just so scary.
If you're a hardcore scary movie fan then you have to see "The Fourth Kind" it will blow your mind.
When I was a child the Were Wolf and the Frankenstien movies use to scare me.
Stephen King's "It" terrified me to the point where i couldn't handle a scary movie until i was i think 14. I saw bits and pieces of "The Exorcist" so i didnt bother with that until i was older either.

sleep with the lights on, made you go into your subconscious religious recesses, or asked a friend or relative to stay with you to allay your fears?

As an adult, I very rarely get actually scared by movie anymore. I remember though when I was young I watched the Childs Play movie with the possessed doll called Chucky and it freaked me out. It seems absurd in retrospect because it's just a doll, but there was something about it that got under my...
