which horror movie traumatised you as a child?

im in the mood for a good scare after posting in the http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54465 urban legends and ghosts thread, so I ask you, which horror movie traumatised you?

for me its the nightmare on elm street series, those and childsplay.

my brother would tape films off sky and in the morning he'd watch abit then stop the tape in a scary place. he'd shout "keely, whitney, come and look what I taped last night.." and everytime we'd go rushing to see what he'd taped, and everytime he'd press play at the scariest point in the film.

im seriously disturbed because of my brother. I still have freddy nightmares.

The original Amityville!

It was on tv one christmas when I was staying with my cousin, I guess I was about 11 or 12 ish. We planned to watch it in her room, so we set up a teddy to cover the standby light on her telly, so we could switch it off if we heard someone coming, got settled in to watch it. I was supposed to be sleeping on the floor, by the end of the opening sequence we were both in her bed, we freaked each other out so much! I think we watched up to the point with the blood running down the walls! Telly got switched off - we pretended not to really be scared we were tired! ! ! :giggle:

I've still never watched the whole film! Something about it being based on a true story I think!

The bit in Jaws when the head drops out the bottom of the boat gets me every time too! ! Always makes me jump - even though I know it's gonna happen! ! :giggle:

I used to have nightmares about E.T.
We were meant to be watching Pinocchio at the cinema that day but it was sold out. I was pretty young and I was really traumatised. I slept in the top bunk for years because I thought E.Ts neck wouldn't stretch high enough to get me:giggle:

I still get chills watching it now, even though I think it's a great film.

Nightmare on Elm Street too for me, I must have been about 8-9 when I saw the first one.

Got to be 'The Shining' for me. "Redrum, Redrum!!" - Freaky little kid! :w00t:
#12
I have to say I've never been traumatised by any film! Yeah, some films scare me, and I love to be scared from watching films, but I've never had nightmares/been as far as traumatised!

If anyones got some badass horrors, do let me know :)

I watched the changling last year, didnt think much of it, though I was ill at the time and missed half of it as I was lying in a heap on the bed seeking sympathy :giggle:
#14
never watched them as a kid, but when i watched the shinning for the 1st time wiv a friend, my hamster knocked something over in her cage and that made me jump more than the film did.
#15
I know lot's of people slate it, but, The Blair Witch Project scared me silly!

Might be because I was an emotional gibbering wreck after my divorce, and I sat in the dark with a couple of candles burning whilst watching!

Doh! :p
#16
I went watching that when it first came out
on the way back to mine we saw a rather ghastly neighbour, he always wears a muchy hat and hes very thin and tall, in the dark he looked just like freddy, I almost peed

As a kid, I would have to say Lost Boys, sad I know but it was a little scary back then.

On recent terms, I would say The Descent. Went to the pics to watch it and people were screaming (bunch of lads sitting behind me) and some people actually left with hands over their eyes.
#19
BAMBI !!!!!
I remember crying all the way home from the cinema in the car and crying myself to sleep at night.
That scene where....oh, that scene where.....Bambi's mother was .....was....AARRRHHHHHH!!! :cry:

for me the scariest part of lost boys is tim capello girating with his saxophone :giggle:

The Descent had me ---- was really really scared - right up to the point where you saw the gollum creatures - I was bored for the rest of the film!

If they'd not shown them at all it would have been sooo much better!

Bambi was and will always be slightly marred for me.

Went to see it with Mum & Baby brother - he was 5, I was 7. It got to the dreaded scene and he piped up in his oh so loud little voice "She's dead you know - she's dead!" :x

30yrs :oops: later and I can still hear it!!!

French film called The Fiends, the scene at the end really scared me, mainly because I was too young to have guessed what was really going on.
#26
what about house of a thousand corpses, it didnt so much scare me, more it freaked me out and made me feel a little sick to my stomach..

Glad to see The Decent gave a few other people the jitters. I've not jumped when watching a film for years but that one got me twice! Don't want to spoil it but car window and camera scene should offer a clue.

My ex hated horrors, I think we really broke up cause I made her watch The Descent and Creep. They gave her nightmares and I used to joke about those films afterwards. Another one of my ex's was terrified by Emily Rose and said she'd never watch it again. I hadn't seen it but convinced her to watch it again with me to try and get rid of her fears - which worked thankfully.
#33
I didnt like the decent. quite enjoyed creep but its one of those films you can only watch so many times. enjoyed emily rose too.
gosh, Ive seen too many horrors, think the only one I havnt seen in this thread so far is jaws and friends :oops:
#34
I remember me and my mum watching the original Friday the 13th,I would have been around 16 I think(seems lomg ago and my memory ain't what it used to be:whistling: )

Anyway,the bit just at the end,if i can recall,there is someone in a boat on the lake,it's calm and serene after all the killings,when all of a sudden the huge cheese plant in the corner of the room topples over and makes us jump,then seconds later Jason comes out the water..................well squealing like banshees we were..................followed by hilarious laughter when my dad cam running to see what the commotion was:giggle:
#35
me and my friend were watching poltergeist 2 in my old living room, we had timers on the lights then, and just as something scary was about the happen the light clicked off and scared us half to death :p
#36

When my sister and her friend watched Carrie for the first time I quickly disappeared and hid under the bed so I could grab their leg when they came upstairs - they screamed so loudly, lol.
