    My brother was flipping through channels one time when I was about 5 or 6, and for a few minutes he left it on a horror movie called Squirm. Some people were fishing and the worms burrowed into one guy's face. It was terrifying, but my brother was laughing, which just made it all the more disturbing to me. That image haunted me for years when I would try to go to sleep.

    I later found out that my brother was laughing because the movie is terrible. It was even featured on MST3K at one point.

    Most of my childhood nightmare fuel was adult nightmare fuel.



    My psyche is scarred by stupid B movies.

    Oh yeah, this was on national TV. I remember watching this with a friend at late night. Good times

    E.T. scared the hell out of me as a kid. The way he shuffles. Cranes his neck.. that scream. Ugh, the corn field scene. That, in particular, probably set the stage for my hatred of him throughout the viewing, and perhaps to this day.



    Saw it when I was about five. I remember being confused as to why people thought it was neat/funny that E.T. magically "connected" with Elliot - I felt suspicious, and vaguely recall running of a bunch of scary 'what-if scenarios through my little mind at the time. His appearance/mannerisms/scream were viscerally disturbing and creepy, and his link to the kid was a mindfuck for 5 Year-Old Me.

    The whole time, I was waiting for him to expose his evil.

    The scene in the morning after Halloween, when Elliot's brother finds E.T. dying in a ditch, I had a moment of relief. Just a moment, though.

    Reanimated E.T.'s glowing heartbeat completely wrecked certain stuffed animals people would give me as presents over the next year or so.. some had glowy-hearts on the chest/belly area.. I couldn't sleep with them in my room. I kept waiting for their chests to illuminate on their own.. and maybe their eyes.. (imagination would start going wild at that point).



    Ironically, I watched Stephen King's Creepshow every summer at my crazy grandma's since I was about 3. While it did frighten me the first time I saw it, I watched the whole thing, and I looked forward to it every time. It was such an intense/bizarre experience.

    But seriously.. fuck E.T.

    Also- Unsolved Mysteries.

    The show itself didn't scare me, but the theme music used to give me the creeps when I was little.




    The eerie narration of Robert Stack only served to enhance it, of course.


    Later on, I grew to appreciate the effect quite a lot, though. I really enjoyed when things 'made to be frightening/unsettling/tense' were done well.. it was the unintentional things that typically stayed with me, like E.T.
    (Again, fuck E.T.)

    I'm still scared of horror movies and tend to close my eyes during scary parts. I prefer not to watch horror movies with my dates. In my defense i have very fast reflexes which makes me react fast which is kinda annoying when watching horror movies.

    Hmm.. regarding the op i can't remember i can't remember

    @Ginkgo reminded me of a show on paranormal activity research and UFO's, that I occasionally watched throughout my early teens. Watching scary movies is one thing, watching people document strange reports of people getting terrorized by spirits is another story. Every time I watched the show, I was so scared, I felt the hairs on the top of my head rise up. It was quite the adventure every single time.



    The name of the show is "Sightings" 1992-1997
