The abominable snowman in Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer used to scare the bajeebees out of me. Also the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz made me run out of the room.

This TV movie scarred me for life. Particularly, the chauffeur at about 1:18 in. I recall this was a made for TV movie back in the late 70s. I was probably 6 or 7 at the time.

Well poo. Can't seem to get the vid embedded. It's the trailer for "Burnt Offerings"

There was an episode of 'Star Trek' that included a big baldy guy ( the alter ego of a little alien fella if I remember correctly) I cant remember what the episode was called but that thing led to many a sleepless night when I was a nipper...they also used to stick his big head in the closing credits sometimes, the horrible bald b****rd that he was....In his autobiography, Simon Pegg also said he was terrified of the big fella, so I'm glad it wasn't just me

Im not sure, but I think the title of the movie was "The Thing." I just know my parents never let me watch stuff like that, but my babysitter did one night and all I can remember of it was that creepy hand crawling up the backseat. I couldnt sleep with my hands of feet hanging over the edge of the bed or not under the covers forever! Fun thread


Oh yeah, that Twilight Zone with the doll was creepy for me too!

Yeah I remember that

Freaked me out as well

Was that hammer house of horror ?

I remember watching that my mum thought it would be fun to cover a pig's trotter in ketchup and rest it on my shoulder

I screamed the house down

That's one pig that really did fly


Thanks mum
for the trauma

I introduced my kids to the Banana Splits Show.

They have sang the theme song a lot since then.

Oh my word, Cody - I had been going to post Salems Lot and that VERY scene scared the you-know-what out of me! I only ever saw it when I was younger when I sneaked out of bed and saw my parents watching TV and that was the only bit I saw and have never forgotten it! Totally freaked me out!
Lol, just watched your clip which is only second time I saw it and it's still just as creepy! WHY the hell did he open the door?!!?

Thanks for posting it! Now off to shut the curtains and hide under the duvet!

Unsolved Mysteries. I used to love this show, but growing up in the 80s, I have to admit there were a couple of ghost episodes that scared the $#!t out of me.

Great thread! S&F. I agree with almost anything that was on Unsolved Mysteries and Sightings. I remember as a kid hearing the Unsolved Mysteries intro music and getting scared. One tv show that stuck with me the most and was responsible for my interest in the paranormal, was the Toys 'R' Us ghost from That's Incredible. That photo really freaked me out. I had to sleep with the lights on for a long time after that.



Honorable mention goes to Stephen Kings "It" miniseries with that @$#&*! clown.

Also some scary movies that stuck with me:
Jaws
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Robocop (the scene where they kill officer Murphy was brutal)
The Shining
Poltergeist
People Under The Stairs
Jacob's Ladder

For me I think it would be "The Tomorrow People" thinking of that show still gives me the willies.


That was the most awesome show I remember watching back in the 1970's. The invasion of the killer puffa jackets that came from outer space (made of synthetic living plastic that did bad things to their victims).

www.tv-ark.org.uk...

The shows that really scared was the opening titles of Tales of the Unexpected - all those skulls. Just about as as scary as the end titles of Live and Let Die.

www.youtube.com...

Not forgetting the story about the B&B landlady who likes to taxidermy her favourite guests using the service trolley equipped with a full set of operating theater instruments. Could never sleep in a hotel room ever again.

Dr Who and the Seeds of Doom, where humans turn into giant walking trees.

The final episode of Blakes Seven, where the flight deck disintegrates.
That movie where the Russian royal family are shot at midday.

Stephen King's "It" was horrifying to me - and I wasn't a kid.
I HATE that clown/spider thing. Not fond of clowns in general.

A couple X-File episodes were disturbing...

Courage was a freaky cartoon...the stuff they came up with was twisted.

I freaked at the flying monkeys when I saw Wizard of Oz on TV the first time.

The Abominable snowman creature from Rudolph also scared me as a kid.

Not a TV show, but I saw that creepy child catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and wanted to hide forever in the house.

Get outta my head! That damn scene made me chop down a bush by my _..couldn't take the scratching sound when the wind blew anymore..... Or when that blue baldy popped right up in the middle of a family meal? Holy crap man!

I remember V scared the crap out of me...(old version). Mostly because it just seemed like such a REAL possibility to a kid in the 80's... When he was on the ship and saw the "food" storage...yikes! Though oddly, I was all about Diana....

You're welcome, sonny. And, mum will be nice and not tell your little ATS friends that you screamed like a girl.

To this day, I cannot look at Linda Blair's possessed face from The Exorcist. I would post it, here, but then I'd have to look at it while posting it. That film still scares the poop out of me.
