What is the scariest childhood memory, which still sticks with you today?


I was about four or five years old when a lightening storm woke me up and my brother took me to a rocking chair in the living room, near the front door. As he was attempting to rock me back to sleep, the wind busted open the front door and thunder and lightening screamed in through the screen door! It terrified me! What are your early memories of scary times?

    Yeah the scariest movie I watched was at seven years old. My aunt let us watch Critters. I didn't sleep for a week and for years later I used to have to jump from my bed to the door to avoid the imaginary grabby things under the bed in the dark....
