Since it's Halloween tomorrow, and I write horror stories, I was wondering what people fear the most.

Often, the most common answer is "The Unknown", but not everyone breaks their personal fear down something as general as that.

What is the one thing that you are most fearful of? It doesn't have to be a rational fear, just a fear that is above all others for you (examples: The Dark, Germs, Boogeyman Character, Drowning, Claustrophobia, etc.).

well i guess more a phobia really.
being buried alive, even that scene in one of the kill bill movies had me grasping for air.
Really that's why i already signed to have any organs removed after my death, on one hand it will help others, on the other hand, no chance of me waking up in the coffin if half of my organs are removed. i know there is almost a 0% chance of that happening today, but hey, phobias can't be rational

Could not agree more.

Besides, irrational fears are embarrassing. So, sorry, I will not be sharing mine.

I once knew a guy that was scared of rabbits. Even wanted to overcome his dreaded fear ... so we took him out rabbit hunting. He would only come if he had a 12G for protection .... self defense against rabbits.

He said afterwards, he was a lot happier now that he knew he could deal with them but ..... his fear was still there. I stayed real close to him, he had a real fear, even with a 12G in his hands.

My biggest fear is that God actually does exist.

He is going to be pretty mad with me when I die given all the bad things I have said about him and his religions over the years.

Toss up between aliens and spiders


Apparently many Americans fear identity theft and walking alone at night. I will say walking or standing or just being outside alone at night is frightening though I can usually tolerate it.

What would be my most primal fear? Having someone know those things that terrify me the most, and using them against me. As a writer I'm sure you could gauge many different ideas from previously successful authors and movies.
People are afraid of being afraid.
No greater fear, than fear itself.
Hope that helps inspire.

I am scared of snakes. Hate them. In Australia though we have some of the most deadliest snakes in the world so we have a good reason. I used to be scared of drowning and I found out an ancester had drowned.
My wife is scared of bridges and does not like crossing them. An ex- girlfriend was terrified of yellow earthmoving equipment and would cross a road to avoid them! My daughter is scared of virtually nothing but cannot watch zombie movies a she is scared.

Won't catch me swimming deep in the ocean... where I'm bottom of the food chain lol.
Being in pitch black darkness is another. I had a cruel babysitter who would lock my sister and I in the garage with the lights out... I blame her for my sissyness of the dark.

Medicine pushing doctors is my biggest fear. The FDA and USDA being in charge of our food is something that Makes me uneasy too.

Having kids dressed up as doctors coming to the door would scare the hell out of me.

Woodticks.

Hubby never believed how bad my phobia was until I found one on myself a few summers ago... his hearing has never been the same since.

Poor bugger had to comfort me in his arms for the rest of the night.

True story.




... needless to say I was embarrassed as all hell at revealing my wussiness over a stupid little bug.

Being trapped in wrecked car that catches fire. Most horrible thing I've ever seen.

Chaos.

My biggest fear is chaos. I grew up with order. Schedules. Regulations.

Random acts unsettle me.

There. That is my biggest fear.

That and clowns.

Really hate clowns.

Anything that could harm my kids. Having to watch them experience real fear and pain would be the worst.

My worst fear has slowly become true and that's realising the one thing in life I wanted won't come to pass. Oh the horror!!

Otherwise being eaten to death by a shark, at night, in the ocean would be my 2nd top fear. The dark night because it adds atmosphere, the deep, black ocean for setting and a circling shark as antagonist. Drowning, being eaten and the loneliness of the ocean (giving life a metaphysical insignificance) all rolled into one.

Unless there was a zombie riding the shark, it doesn't get much worse than that.

My biggest fear is either being eaten alive or being burned to death. Seriously. Both would suck so hard.

Or getting my head slowly removed by bad bad folk. :C

My somewhat irrational fear has always been being maimed in some way. This usually manifests itself as a dislike of chainsaws. I also used to dream of being run over with a lawnmower. I can easily use a lawnmower but I hate to even watch someone using a chainsaw.

Many years ago on Halloween my best friend and I went to Alice Cooper's Nightmare (A fairly famous Haunted House in Phoenix) and having finished the tour we were walking out into the parking lot. Logically assuming the experience was over we were talking each other up (that wasn't that scary) when out of the area where they normally would keep their dumpster comes running a leatherface-esque madman with his chainsaw running full bore. It scared the (thankfully non literal) crap out of me.

Speaking of scaring the crap out of someone. A haunted house actor over at cracked.com says that most houses offer a cash bonus to cast members who successfully manage to make someone crap their pants. They also say that some haunted houses have begun to handcuff patrons before the tour as part of the experience and to diminish assaults on staff members which is apparently rampant. Forget that noise.

Oh also one thing that I used to get freaked out about was whenever I had my head close to a wall I would imagine some kind of ghoul or the like with their head pressed right up against the other side of the wall. I think that is actually from a horror movie.
