What Is The First Horror Movie You Remember Seeing?

While we often watch more horror movies in one week than other people do in a whole year, it’s sometimes the best time to revisit the ones that got us into the genre in the first place. So I want to know what happens when we go all the way back to the beginning, to the very first horror movie you’ve seen!

For me, the first movie that I remember seeing in full was Alien3 but my first movie memory goes back to one of horror’s most iconic villains. Head on below for my first horror movie and then tell me yours!

I can still remember flicking through TV channels when I was very young and switching over to one of the movie channels (HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, etc…). I saw a teenage boy looking through his waterbed, seeing a bare breasted woman looking at him with the most seductive gaze my prepubescent mind had ever seen.

And the suddenly Freddy burst through the plastic, splashing water everywhere and dragged that boy into the clear waters which quickly became red with blood. And that’s when my mother made me change the channel.

That scene has stuck with me my entire life. I don’t know what it is about it but it hooked me into horror right away and I’ve never looked back!

So what’s yours? What horror movie do you remember seeing first, the one that turned you into a horror fan? Let me know!



  • JohnnyH0RR0R

    The Lost Boys

  • a very British hamster

    I think it was either one of the Universal classics or the first Evil Dead.

  • ChasingTheGhost

    The Exorcist. I remember seeing pictures from the movie in a magazine and saved it in my room. My brother found out and bought me the VHS as a gift.

    • Carrie Bell

      So what was your reaction to it?

  • KingOfHorror

    The Fearless Vampire Killers

  • This is a fun question. Does King Kong count? I’ve watched every monster movie I could since before I can remember. I can remember watching Dracula and Bride of Frankenstein before I started kindergarten.

    • JonathanBarkan

      Hell yeah King Kong counts!

  • Kirkio

    It’s hard to say for sure but I definitely remember watching Hellraiser at a very young age, and a film called The Manitou which I seem to remember was pretty disturbing about someone growing out of another person’s back or something. I should really look that up again…

  • Child’s play and I shat enough bricks as a child to build the great wall X_X

  • SemajTheSellout

    One of my first conscious memories, period, was Chucky rising under a sheet behind Kyle and bursting through in Child’s Play 2 at about 4ish. I don’t know what it was but, I was fascinated by it. Chucky became my favorite thing in the world. Which then lead to me just having this love for horror.

  • Paul

    Phantasm. I saw it one night after my mom went to bed on this new channel she got called HBO!! I’m old.

  • Cameron Fraser

    Creature From The Black Lagoon, I was 3 or 4 years old it was on tv.

  • Saren Nevac

    Could be either Deadly Friend, Evil Dead 2 or Alien. Only three movie i can think of.

    • JonathanBarkan

      Alright BD, rally up and let’s figure out which movie this is! Any ideas?

      • Martin Cann

        It’s an Amicus film from the 70s called ‘Asylum’.

        • Saren Nevac

          Had a quick look on youtube, looks like it fits the bill. Just remember as a kid seeing the packaged body parts in string still breathing and moving. Also being in my bedroom at night thinking the parcels were under my bed. lol. Cheers mate. 🙂

  • eagleye25

    With Horror elements: The Monster Squad

    The “Real McCoy”: Friday the 13th (1980)

  • Nick M.

    original Night of the Living Dead, it was on tv.

  • WolfQueen

    I think it was “Aliens”. My grandmother always let me watch any of the movies that she watched and I believe that was my first “horror” movie. I do remember watching “A Clockwork Orange” at the age of 12 when my mom wasn’t home. LOL.

    • Antisocial_ism

      I think I was four when my mom and her boyfriend went to a drive in to see A Clockwork Orange. I remember the scene when they were raping the girl on the stage scared me. Of course, I was supposed to be sleeping in the back seat, but I kept sneaking peeks.

  • schrrodingersdog

    Fiend without a Face – a black and white movie about brains and spinal cords moving around on their own for some reason…traumatized me as I was about 7 years old

  • Matt Kunka

    A Nightmare On Elm Street 2. I was 2, almost 3 and my uncle was babysitting me. I vividly remember the scene with the gym teacher getting slashed.

  • RiesenRatte

    Mine was The Grudge. Probably that caused that I’m always scared of Japanese horror^^

  • Feyd Darkholme

    Without doubt the first scary/horror “movie” I ever saw was the TV movie “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” back in 1973. I was a very young child and It gave me nightmares for years afterwards and started my obsession with the “horror” genre.

  • Michael Olson

    I think it was “Parasite” with Demi Moore in 3D.

  • Antisocial_ism

    Not a movie, but Kolchak: The Night Stalker scared me when I was a kid. Especially the one where you can see it’s a monster from the back, but from the front it looks like a person. I was four or five and that really scared me.

  • Aaron Reason

    Mine was HalloweeN ( born in 87)

  • Michael Olson

    You know it might have been Galaxy of Terror

  • Jiyoana Cascais

    The Ring

    • RiesenRatte

      Original or Re-make?

  • MovieBuffoon

    This is a tough one… first one i saw in the THEATERS, was Alien and I was 8 years old. Seriously. (and yes, it jakked me up, but made me fan). Now, the first i saw on TV? That’s hard to say… could have been anything.

  • Tek

    Thing (’82) and I was like 6 years old. Honestly, that was the most horrifying experience with horror film I’ve ever had. That movie scared crap out of me. I didn’t know whether to kill my family or trust them (they are alive btw).

  • Paige

    The American remake of The Ring, i was about 8 or so. I loved it and have been a horror fan since.

  • Tim

    “The Shining” when I was a little kid; I walked into the room and my parents were watching it. It was on the old lady in the bathtub scene, and it horrified me and I ran out of the room crying. A year or two later, still as a little kid, I began to love horror movies, become an avid Fangoria, “Tales From the Crypt”, and Stephen King fan(though I couldn’t yet understand many of the words I ‘read’),amongst other things, and I loved Freddy, of course. The first Nightmare on Elm Street, one of the very best horror movies of all time, a brilliant classic..

  • M0llyM0M0

    I remember seeing parts of The Others when I was around 6 or so (the part with the old blind lady with the white eyes, if I’m thinking of the right movie, scared the shit out of me), but I think the first horror movie I watched in full was Halloween H20 when I was around 11. That’s what really sparked my interest in horror movies.

  • LastCubScout

    Probably ‘The Beast with Five Fingers’ (1946) starring Peter Lorre on the late night Creature Features TV show. I also remember cowering under the table as a kid with my cousin as we watched ‘Reptilicus’ on the 3:30 Afternoon Monster Movie.

  • Richard Jackson

    I don’t remember which cam first; but, the first horror movie I ever saw was either the 1979, Frank Langella, Dracula, or Jaws. I believe I was either 4 or 5. Not too long after I saw The Monster Squad. After that, I became obsessed with horror; it was all I would talk about. My parents made the mistake or letting me have a tv in my room and I would constantly sneak and watch movies I wasn’t supposed to, like Halloween and Child’s Play. I also remember watching The X-files every Sunday with my family. I would also sneak and watch Tales from the Crypt.

    As time goes by, my love for horror movies only grows. I am always looking for a good horror movie to watch. Though I love all types of horror, my favorite type of horror is supernatural. There is nothing like a good ghost or monster movies. After that, I would go with slashers. I like the two mixed together as well.

  • OceanSlaughter

    Oh how it all comes back to the day I seen Evil Dead, which still is by far my favorite horror movie. I was quite young and my parents rented a vhs and were watching it upstairs. I kept sneaking in and they kept yelling at me to go back to bed. The second they went to bed, I snuck in and took the vhs and went to the basement and watched it all by myself.

  • Celso Pïn Júnior

    I’ll never forget my first horror film. It was American Werewolf in London. I was days aways from turning 4 visiting my uncle for the christmas of 1981. On the morning of the 25th they slapped this VHS on and told me to get lost. I did at first, but I insisted so much they let me back in… it was a traumatic and fascinating experience. Naturally, I didn’t understand a thing, I don’t even remember much since I was very young, but the image that has never left my mind is that scene David is in the woods, lying in his hospital bed and suddenly opens his eyes and he’s becoming a monster. Jesus! That’s one of my favourite scenes from any movie until today!

    Such sweet memories…

  • Cal

    I saw Poltergeist at an outdoor cinema with my cousins. And it kickstarted my love for horror even if it’s a bit outdated (still better than most new horror anyway). The whole experience was great especially the torture barn before the film! 😀

  • M M

    It was John Carpenter’s The Thing. My family went to visit friends and when the parents went outside the kids there out the thing on. I remember getting to the dog kennel and losing it.

  • TerrorVision (1986). Very silly stuff but one of my favorites.

  • Morgan Moore

    Phantom of the Opera, the 1943 version. Still one of my favorites.

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    For me, it was probably ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’. The scene of Tina being dragged across the ceiling stuck in mind for years as a kid.

  • Kat Lavelle

    Salem’s Lot!! Frightened the bejaysus out of me when I was a kid!!!! It was the original tv mini series and stuck with me for years!

    • Carrie Bell

      I think that may have been the movie for which a commercial I remember as a little kid, and it frightened me so much that I would get paralyzed. I was crap out of luck too as I lived with my grandma and had no place to run. She would have just started screaming. Lol

  • Bear

    Pet semetary. Shit, My, Pants.

    • Joel Raine

      That scene with Zelda was the first horror scene I saw. I was 10..

  • Danny Gately

    I was 2 1/2 or 3 when the first NOES came out on VHS. I remember my parents had a sectional separated by a table and I snuck around the backside of the longest couch and hid behind the short one where my parents were sitting. They had to have the couch away from the wall because there was a heater vent by the window so there was more than enough room for a little toddler to stand and watch what was the single most terrifying movie-watching experience of my life. My parents only became aware I was in the room when I screamed at the part where Tina’s body gets dragged through the school and Nancy follows only to run in the “Where’s your pass” lady. The part where she has Freddy’s glove on and says, Hey…Nancy! No running in the hallway” did it for me and I scared the crap out of my parents and the friends they had over. I had nightmares for weeks after but that started my obsession with horror films.

  • Outof TheWoodwork

    It’s been a long time since I watch my first horror movie, but I still remember every bit of it. “The Blob” the original 1958 version. I remember it so well because for some reason we ate tomato soup that night for dinner, and about half way through the movie my sister ended up wearing my dinner. This movie actually got me into horror but there are a couple others that actually inspired my writing and me wanting to make movies. “The Birds” by Alfred Hitchcock and “Food of the Gods” from 1976 got me into wanting to know how the movies were made and how I could do the same things myself.

  • Wesley Martin

    My earliest memories were of two films. The first was the original 1932 “The Mummy” which I saw at a Halloween party at my school. The scariest part for me was early on of course when the Mummy first woke up and all you see if his hand moving forward. It was scary but didn’t leave the kind of impression the second film I remember seeing which was “Creepshow”. I woke up late one night and heard my mom watching TV in the living room and was curious. She was channel surfing and had just turned it on because she’d worked with one of the actress’ once, Adrienne Barbeau, and was curious about the film, so she let me sit down and watch a little with her. I got about as far as the two lovers who come back as seaweed covered zombies and hightailed it back to my bedroom. That and the walking corpse with the birthday cake still give me chills today.

  • Walder Frey

    “Viy” (USSR, 1967)

  • Kevin Hoover

    Creepshow for me. God, the cockroach segment has stuck with me, and 30 years I’m still terrified of the damn things!

  • naturallybornbad

    The shinning (Original)

  • Jeremy Wade

    return of the living dead part 1. my god the nightmares i had about that film

  • Rho

    I remember seeing Jaws when it aired on network TV back in the 80s. It was a rare event in which my whole family gathered together to enjoy something. I was probably 5 or 6 and completely lost it when the head of the shark victim is discovered. I still get the creeps when that scene comes on.

  • Steven McDade

    Creepshow I saw the poster and since it looked like a comic book, I sneaked in at a Mall theater. Purchased ticket to some Disney movie. I then started to read Stephen King novels. I used to be a real scaredy cat until then. The Wicked Witch in The Wizard of OZ used to scare the crap out of me.

  • RC13

    Friday The 13th part 2

  • Waveboy

    Can’t remember, it might of been A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, but i’m not too sure!

  • Spooky Samantha

    Banned from watching scary movies, my dad waited till I went to bed, then popped in the movie rental. An hour or so went by, me cracking my bedroom door every now and then to try’n make out the sounds coming from the TV room. Then, building up the nerve, I slipped out, crawling down the darkened hallway to the dining room. Held my position here, and poked my head around the corner.

    Across the darkness of the kitchen was the TV room, brightening and dimming with the action on the glowing screen. There was the back of my dad’s head sitting just a little higher than the couch cushion. Then there was a shaggy wolf bursting through a pair of movie theater doors, sending a panic through the crowd on the London streets. I drew back at once. Sat there…listening. My heart was racing, whether from the wolf’s rampage or at the thought of my dad turning and catching sight of me, I couldn’t say.

    So to say AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON was the first horror movie I remember seeing might not be accurate. More like catching fleeting glimpses of.

  • Joel Raine

    Although The Exorcist was my first full horror film, my first horror experience was when I was 10, flicking through channels and I saw the scene from Pet Semetary with Zelda and it traumatised me for a long time.

  • EvilHead1981

    The first I remember is probably The Hand. I do know that the original A Nightmare on Elm Street was up there and it scared the shit out of me as a kid. In particular, I owe my love of horror to my fear and A Nightmare on Elm Street. That what you fear peaks your curiosity. My love of horror most definitely came from me being a chickenshit kid in the 80s, always covering my eyes when my dad rented horror movies, always being afraid of going to the bathroom alone in the night and fearing that the dark recesses of my closet, under the bed and hallways hid all my horror movie terrors, just waiting for me to slip and get me and pull me into my nightmares. Now, I fuckin’ LOVE horror and, oddly enough, Freddy Krueger, the bane of my dreams, is one of my favorite horror movie characters of all time!

  • It was the summer of 1985…. I had begged my mom to let me go to the movies to see The Goonies, so she did. She took me to the movie theater and bought me a ticket and let me go in to watch the move. This probably would have been fine except for the tiny little fact that there was a anther move out at the same time called the Ghoulies and she had accidentally gotten me a ticket to see that one rather than The Goonies. Even that might have still been fine if I wasn’t only eight years old at the time! LOL

  • c-s-a78

    blood older brothers made me watch it when I was little.i had a fear of the sand at the beach for a long time after that!lol.
    also I think a remake on it would be good!?!

  • LuJr81

    What really introduced me to horror wasn’t a movie but a tv show, Tales from the Crypt. After watching that, thats when I began to watch Chucky, Freddy, Michael, and Jason. But the first movies I saw for the slashers I mentioned were Child’s Play 3, Freddy’s Dead, Friday the 13th part 4, and Halloween 4. Been in love with horror ever since.

  • Dee Cranney

    first horror movie I ever saw was a toss up between return of the living dead part 2 or pet cemmatary

  • Tweedy

    Took me awhile to find the name of this little gem. Real young when i saw this on USA Up All Night.

  • Krug09

    Halloween 5 is the oldest i can remember. by the time i was in the 1st grade i was watching ANOES, No More Mr Nice Guy and Jason Lives among others.

  • Brian Fenton

    Fire In The Sky, that cult film about aliens? Yeah, I caught the probing scene on tv when I was like 4, scarred me for life

  • Pulagatha

    I remember watching “A Nightmare On Elm Street” before anything else. It was scary. But the thing I distinctly remember first as I was watching the movie on the couch with my mom and dad was Freddy Krueger on fire, coming back up the stairs, and being twice his weight. That was probably the first time I noticed something in a movie looking fake.

  • thalazy

    A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 was my first that I saw most of. I was too chicken shit to watch horror and would always hide while my family watched the Friday the 13th flicks. My first Horror movie in the theater was A Nightmare on Elm Street 4.

  • EmPleH

    For me, one of the first movies i watched was Creature from the Black Lagoon and the Mummy’s Hand with my grandma when it was on tv. She was too afraid to watch it by herself so she would make me watch it with her when i was about 4 or 5. Always found it badass of her that she got me into horror movies since usually grandparents tell you not to watch them.

    • Carrie Bell

      My grandma would have died of a heart attack. Every time she saw a commercial for a horror movie on tv she would scream bloody murder and turn her head away from the tv. Lol

  • Booth

    Scream. I watched it when I was 3 years old. Yeah, my dad started me young. And I still remember having vivid nightmares about it when I was 3. I’m surprised that I can remember that far back, but it’s pretty clear in my thoughts.

  • Werewolf

    My first horror movie was Poltergeist. It was rated PG if you can believe that. I’ll never forget this particular scene.

  • Rotten J

    I remember the movie Mirror, Mirror scared the shit out of me. I was afraid to go in my room ’cause I’ve had a big mirror there. Also Horror Express was terrifying for my childish brain.

  • PedJun

    For me, it started early… by five or six years-old I remember seeing a black and white Frankenstein version. Yeah, not really horror, but hey… back then it seemed like it. But the really, really first one that frightened me as hell was the first Evil Dead. I was 10 or 11 y-o and it really made my night a living hell… lolol
    My interest for all things horros started there. It frightened me, but I liked it. Also, I remember seeing Tales from the Cript, as I was 13 or 14 yo.

  • Lisa Worm

    The first movies I remember watching as a youngster was: Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. These are the first movies I can remember watching other than Cheech and Chong’s Up in Smoke.

  • Jason Mackinnon

    Cannibal Apocalypse. First horror movie I ever watched.

  • SuperKilla

    My dad recorded A Nightmare on Elm St. Part 2 on vhs which I quickly discovered when I was 4 years of age and watched everyday. Freddy putting body parts in the furnace and gutting that chubby kid’s stomach at the pool scene fucked with my head even though I knew it wasn’t real but I was hooked on horror movies from there on.

  • zigwardScissorHands

    Does Predator count? Maybe not, it certainly has some horror elements. Beyond that it was probably Critters 2. I still enjoy that film a lot but it’s not exactly a stellar beginning to the horror genre. This was soon followed by The Blob remake and A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.

  • jp1

    I remember seeing The Boogeyman when I was eight or nine. I also remember seeing Friday the 13th part 3 in 3D. I can’t remember which was first though

  • Jonny_anonymous

    It was either Halloween or Candy Man. I was around 10 when I seen them both and to this day they are still the scariest movies I’ve ever seen.

  • ProwlerInTheYard

    Jurassic park. I don’t care what anybody says, when you’re 5 years old that film’s the scariest most thrilling-est shit imaginable.

  • Paul C Helmueller

    Ok I’m gonna date myself here but Rose Mary’s baby.

  • Halloween was the first one I watched in full, but before that I remember seeing parts of the first Pumpkinhead and being terrified by the old witch Haggis more than Pumpkinhead himself. After a few scenes I got in my mom’s lap and shut my eyes. Wasn’t quite ready for horror then, but about a year later Michael Myers changed everything.

  • Rickard Swenson

    Predator when I was about 5 years old, I woke up at night, got under the table in the living room and turned the tv on because I couldn’t sleep, and there he was, love at first sight. I absolutely loved it.

  • MovieJunkie ForLife

    My first was John Carpenter’s The Thing. I was 8yrs old and I don’t know how but it was on tv and I was mesmerized by what i was seeing. Needless to say my cousins (who were with me at the time) were scared shitless and when my parents found me, they were pissed, but after a sitdown discussion on “why do you like these kinds of movies”, my mom and dad decided I could watch horror movies, once their was no sex involved (nudity was acceptable). The whole point of this comment was me saying, my parents were awesome 🙂

  • woodchuck

    the first A nightmare on Elm Street, my grandpa had tape recorded for me to watch when I was five whenever I came over, it had A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scarface, great way to introduce a five year old to the world of cinema!

  • Frank Popp Jr.

    Evil Dead 2, The First Power, and Hello Mary Lou it’s Prom Night 2… in that order…

  • Seal_Clubber

    Dreamscape, I think. Or maybe CHUD …..

  • joesey

    The first horror movie I saw was either Cujo or Friday The 13th:The Final Chapter. Both traumatized me but I was also only 5 at the time.

  • Jim

    Nightmare on Elm Street. I was flipping throught the channels late at night and saw the part of this movie where Johnny Depp was laying on the bed and gets pulled in. I was traumatized and would not sleep in the center of the bed for years after that. I had dreams of those blades coming up through the bed.

  • Maxime C

    I think it was It. And on the same night we watched The Exorcist. I had a great night like you can imagine.

  • Corey Hutton

    5 Years Old, Sleepaway Camp, Followed by A Nightmare on Elm Street. I was fucked up for a few weeks after that. Then i watched Friday the 13th Part 2 and never went back.

  • Shayne

    Cujo. I have been traumatized for life because of that one.

  • Stephanie Hall

    For me it was the original Amityville Horror. It was even creepier because people who heard about it really dramatized the story and added their own rumors to it. I was just a kid so of course I believed it.

  • ThunderDragoon

    I think the first horror movie I watched all the way through was Child’s Play.

  • Monique Hawkins

    Had to be “A Nightmare on Elm Street (84′)” and it’s still my fave.

  • Boone

    I know some people don’t consider “Jaws” a horror film, but when you’re an eight year old kid who lives in a beach town, it’s about the most terrifying thing you can imagine. Took me years to get back into the ocean, and even now I can’t go anymore than knee-deep.

  • Halloween when I was about 9 years old.

  • Troy Adamson

    I can’t remember the exact movie. I know that from the age of 3 I was a fan of Dr. Paul Bearer’s Creature Feature that played every Saturday on WTOG channel 44 in Florida.

  • Adam Paquette

    I believe Pet Sematary and Scream were the first two horror movies that got me into the genre.

  • boaaa82 .

    friday the 13th part 3 or 1981 halloween 2 so far back not sure which one but i remember thinking how awesome they were

  • Robert DAgostino

    I still have nightmares about monsters in my closet because of a film called “the house”. my dad actually let me see this thing when I was about 6 or 7. after I saw the movie, I slept with my lights on for months. it was about ghosts and trollish looking demons and a dead vietnam soldier seeking revenge on the new house owner after the previous one committed suicide….. oh yeah, and at the stroke of midnight every night a hideous monster would burst out of the guy’s bedroom closet.

  • judd

    The first horror movie about deformed little killer kids, was The Brood. It creeped the hell out of me.

  • Gabrielle Nicole Bowers

    My first movie was The Gates of Hell a.k.a. The City of the Living Dead and boy did it ever leave an impression on me I still love horror movies to this day

  • Jonathan Larsson

    It was either Jaws or The Excorcist. Quite possibly The Poltergeist too.

  • Radioactive Empire

    American Werewolf In London always crossed my mind although its not my first. The actual first horror movie i remember seeing was actually The Boogeyman (1980). I only remember the ending and i thought, what is this crazy movie where this glowing flying mirror sticking into people’s eyes and turning them into demon. I watch the movie again on youtube recently and realized what a crap it actually is.

  • Paul

    Child’s Play, which is why I’m obsessed with the franchise til today, but it could be a toss up between Child’s Play, A Nightmare on Elm Street or The Shining.
    I was about 5 or 6 when I watched these, which is probably which started my obsession with horror movies, and movies in general.

  • whitezombie

    friday the 13th the final chapter

  • Brian Carlson

    It’s kind of embarrassing to say but it was either Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers or Wes Craven’s New Nightmare.

  • Brian Otaño

    Poltergeist. I was a toddler and i loved it, except for the fear of clowns it instilled in me. It’s one of my all time faves still.

  • Jeff Pollard

    Halloween 2 for me it was 1981

  • JP Wendel

    The earliest I can remember is Puppet Master, so that explains why I still don’t like dolls and puppets. Thanks Dad!

  • Red Right Return

    Count Yorga, Vampire. I was just a little boy. My brother (a teen at the time) was watching it in the front room with his friend. I was asleep in there with them, like most little brothers, I followed my bro around like a puppy. When I woke up it was because a man was screaming on the screen and it was a close-up of the vampire’s face. Scared the shit out of me.

  • bombthreat

    The Car

  • Sanford Card

    Friday The 13th, the first one. It didn’t even have Jason in it till the very end, but it scared the hell out me, being like 5 or 6 years old.

  • Yannik Apitz

    The Haunting (1963) when I was about 7 years old…because I was told old movies wouldn’t be so scary – Actually, this movie (This scene) is the reason I can’t sleep without a blanket covering my head! :’D Today I’m 20 and I still can’t sleep without it (But now it’s more by habit)

  • Kelli Dakota Downing

    The beast within when I was about twelve or thirteen. It scared the bejeezus out of me.

  • Jessica M Farmer

    Either Candy Man or It. They both scared the living hell outta me.

  • Adrian Sewell

    Hellraiser II or Child’s Play

  • Nikki Arias

    I watched Trilogy of Terror when I was 7 years old. Snuck it in late night after everyone else had gone to bed. Afterwards, I took a running leap into my bed to avoid the dreaded SPACE UNDER THE BED. Ever since then, all my boxsprings lie directly on the floor. I used extra thick mattresses. I’ve never had to worry about the SPACE UNDER THE BED ever again.
