I was in 4th grade, my parents had rented Pulp Fiction from the video store. I remember being completely confused because of the different story lines. I also remember Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta accidentally blowing that guy's head off in the back seat of their car.

Luckily for me, my parents realized I probably shouldn't be watching it by the time Bruce Willis and Ving Rhames got locked in the basement with the gimp -- my god that would have scarred me for life!

Whether it was a horror flick, a drama or comedy...I'm sure most all of us growing up encountered a movie that we probably shouldn't have watched as a youngster.
I saw this topic posted somewhere else on the internet and I wanted to hear some stories from you guys here at ATS.


"Does Marcellus Wallace look like a...witch?!"

I remember watching The Exorcist. My god, how terrifying at a young age. Here I am, 41 years old and still that movie scares the hell out of me. Also watched The Amityville Horror. Why my mother let me, I'll never know...lol

Probably Cujo. It's about a dog that gets rabies and starts killing people.
I was little and that dog scared me.

About 8years old and children of the corn. Corn feilds still freak me out 20 odd years later. Scared for life.

Pfff, I was raised on "Tales from the Crypt" and Romero films. The first movie I saw that was inappropriate for my age was probably "Beauty and the Beast" I was like: please god send in the flesh eating beast. Then the beast showed up and I was all like

Oh man, it was a Tuesday and my Father dropped me off at the theatre by myself to see some disney movie. It was during the day so hardly anyone was in the theatre. I was 14 and decided to sneak in and see the Shining. I was alone in the theatre with my popcorn and soda. I wound up with my knees pulled up to my chest and ate no popcorn because I was consumed by fear! Jack was so scary and those little girls and the hallways…yikes!!


This was 1980 and my first exposure to genuine creepy horror. I have to admit, by the end it was a bit thrilling, but during the movie I was paralyzed with terror, and to this day, it is still one of the top 5 scariest movies I have ever beheld.

I grew up going to the drive-in with some double matinee nights so I got to see 'Friday the 13th', 'Halloween' and others like 'It's Alive'.
'It's Alive' probably freaked me out the most.





Silly now I know but as a kid I was mortified.

As far as horror films go, my cousins (three demented girls at the time) would make me watch "Dolls". They lived in a house in BFE Missouri and it didn't help that my Aunt had creepy dolls in room I had to sleep in. I blame my hatred for dolls and anything doll related on them.

Total Recall with my dad, I was 10.

The only thing I remember was the woman with 3 boobs.

I've yet to meet her but I'm saving all my love for when I do.





Edit: BTW my mom was furious at my dad for that.
go figure

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)...

I was ten years old, snuck into the living room while my older sister and her friend were watching it during a sleepover and I haven't been the same since.

Oh man me and my best friend when we were around 11 watched BasEketball, from the creators of South Park. Over 10 years later it's still probably one of the raunchiest movies I have seen and still love it haha. Every year I would understand more and more of the dirty jokes in it.

My mother, was a movie fan, particularly Horror.

I can't even remember the first "inappropriate" movie.

She always made sure I knew it was "entertainment" and not real at all.

I remember by 6 grade, none of my friends believed the movies I had seen, from all the Nightmare on elm streets and friday the 13th, to classics like the Exorcist.

To this day, no movie has the ability to frighten me, not even a little, beyond that, Im not sure what other effect it has had on me.

I do know one thing, I find censorship of any kind to be an extremely silly concept.
