    This one for me as well. Pretty much any nuclear war movie. I don't think people born after the 90s can really appreciate how it felt during the the cold war (especially during the 80s).

    Along the same ilk, not scary but sad, would be "Grave of the Fireflies".

    I agree on that. I guess 9/11 is much more a dominant thought in today's generation, but when I was growing up the thought of the USSR and USA nuking the crap out of each other (and what that would do to the world) was a very real possibility. It was such a bizarre feeling when the Wall came down and whatever else with it.

    Exactly. Considering we have been through 9/11 and the cold war, I can say 9/11 didn't scare me very much (Well maybe that week because I live in a major city). 9/11 was a sad event but looking at it big picture it is fairly small and isolated. The scary thing about nukes is you don't have to be close to the blast to be affected or killed. In fact the bigger mercy might be getting killed in the initial explosion. The crazy thing during that time was if the US or Russia shot off even one missile, the odds of instant retaliation was such that hundreds of nukes could be shot before even one hits a target

    Jurassic park. Gave me nightmares for 6 months. I was 13 at the time - but I'd heard from somewhere that they were actually doing research in this field, which was enough to jumpstart my imagination apparently. They disappeared after I got it confirmed the rumour was untrue.

    Was peer-pressured into watching "The Ring" when I was maybe 16 -- got 10-15 minutes in, to the part where they find her in the closet, and was like "NOPE" and left. Was still scared for over a month, after watching so little.

    This is why I don't do horror movies.

    I watched critters when I was way too young and impressionable, had me scared for a couple of years.

    Dont remember ever being scared from watching a movie other than that one.

    I generally don't actually get scared watching horror movies (though possession movies do disturb me for reasons relating to my OCD symptoms during childhood), I just watch them to satisfy my morbid streak, occasionally spiced with brief feelings of mild terror or doom if the movies are done well. I've discovered, however, that listening to well-done 'creepypasata' readings on Youtube actually gives me goose bumps (and an aversion to darkened rooms with mirrors while preparing to leave for work)-my theory is that the tone and cadence of the speaker trick my subconscious into mirroring their apparent emotional state.

    For some reason, I found it predictable and laughable rather than scary, which was disappointing.

    I guess "different strokes" and all that.
    It may indeed be different strokes, but part of me wonders. I first watched it on a TV before flat screens. Grainy quality, at night, with some friends and we were all high as hell and just no one spoke during the movie, we were all so into it.

    I've seen it since, and agree that not all the special effects are up to par, but the story itself and the first experience of me watching it still was horrifying. Not trying to change your opinion just saying I think movies have a lot to do with mindset and uh, drugs consumed, haha. Other factors.

    One reason I HATE 120HZ TVs, because the frame rate or whatever is so high, that it feels like you're on the set of the movie and not watching a story, if you know what I mean.

    Well, I just found the actual writing / execution to be on a B movie level -- it left me more prone to laugh than be scared -- but I was definitely sober while watching.
