Is there any movies that you saw as a kid that totally freaked you out, and do they still freak you out now? For me there are two movies I watched as a kid that really freaked me out, and even though they were U cert movies, I think they should be 18's. They still totally freak me out now! Actually I'd rather they were banished from this earth, but anyway  wink...

The film that freaked me out the most is 'The Waterbaby's'. Wow is that film freaky. Thr whole atmosphere is horrible, and it has some of the freakiest music ever. And there's a woman dressed in black with a really evil looking face and she appaers like a ghost out of knowhere and the music when she appears has such bad vibes. I'm not sure if anyone else has seen that film and was freaked out? It should definately be an 18 IMO  wink

Pinocchio also freaked me out, with the whale and the evil vibes it has. The theme park where they turn into donkeys is ensures that it should be an 18  wink

Did you take something before seeing these films or posting this topic? Just curious, you know...

Aside from that, I think there are certain films that should be banned since they insult my intellect...

I don't recall being scared by any movies as a child, I was scared by Dr Who on the TV though, everybody who was a child in the seventies was given nightmares by that  tongue

I watched Stephen King's 'IT' as a child. Slightly scary...I remember my sister made me watch 'Ghost' when I was 5 and I was freaked out!

BAM!!   big grin

Anyway, parts of Alice in Wonderland freak me out. Dont get me wrong though, its a great film but that whole Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum part is freaky as hell. Also the scene where the baby oysters get eaten and that blue catterpillar that exaggerates his vowels. And then evil singing flowers. Sends shivers down my spine just thinking about it. But apart from that its a cool film   cool

Yup, have to agree with that, I remember watching the Dr. Who Episode "City Of Death" (if you're a child of the seventies, Tom Baker's Doctor owns), and being totally freaked out by it.

I watched it a few years ago on UK Gold, the first time since it's first run, and did wonder what the fuss was about.

When I was a wee lad, I once saw a short horror movie about a hunted tennis court.

Some English pilot almost burned up in a WWII bomber that crashed on the airstrip. He could've been saved if his co-pilot had helped him undo his seat-belt, rather than run like a chicken. Eventually the poor guy got out of the plane, clothes ablaze, a human torch. He survived a short while, horribly disconfigured, and after his death he came back to hount the indoor  tennis court where he and his co-pilot used to play. We see people getting killed, and the dead guy.

I was 5 or 6 at the time, and that movie FREAKED ME OUT! I was so terrified  that night, I almost wet my pants. I can't remember the title, but I don't think I want to see it again.

Why I was stupid enough to watch the entire thing, despite my growing panic attack still puzzles me. I guess the fact that I was 5 or 6 has something to do with it.

Actually yeah, Charlie and the Chocolate factory still freaks me out. Especially that part where they're on the boat going through that tunnel and theres all them wierd images on the wall. To this day I still cant watch that part. I'm 19 years old and still have close my eyes or hide behind a pillow watching Charile and the Chocolate factory  wink

Tom Cruise? Val Kilmer!  roll eyes  tongue

When the ogres turned into two headed towering monsters, that was a real "hide behind the sofa!" kinda thing.

I came down stairs once to see what my parents were watching when I was very young and I suddenly saw Han Solo's Carbonite bit, and that freaked me out for ages!

Spare a thought for those of us that grew up during the Colin Baker era.  It wasn't the monsters that scared us...

I don't know what the hell a U-cert is, but I'm jumping on the Charlie & Chocolate Factory bandwagon. The part that creeped me out really was when Wonka and the others went thru the psychedelic tunnel. They even made a joke about that in SNL. I also found the death scene in Bambi pretty traumatic.

The Exorcist scared me when I was young.  It wasn't all that pea soup stuff later in the film.  It was right near the beginning when they were excavating that site in Iraq.  The archaeologists were walking away from the ruins and one of them stopped and looked at that stone statue of the Demon.  It was at dusk and the sun was orange, the wind whipped up a bunch of sand that momentarily obscured the staue, when the sand blew away the face of the demon was clear.  That was a great, creepy shot.  Damn, I'm getting gooseflesh typing this.

Yeah, the parts before the bedroom exorcism sequence are by far the freakiest in the Exorcist. Great movie though.

I agree with Melllvar and Tweek, I used to watch re-runs of Dr Who after school when I was a kid and they seriously freaked me out.

I cried and ruined the The little mermaid for everyone, although i was three. It was just so scary what was gonna happen to Ariel.

Also when i was about 8 i got afraid while watching Beetleguise:The Movie. It started this life long irrational fear of the BOOGEYMAN!!!

Also has anyone seen the movie space camp? Well in the australian release there was this short at the end of it. It was a horry movie about 2 pilots who crash in the Australian Wlderness and one lost his legs, so the Other man piggybacked him around the wilderness and in time the two bodies merged, and they became CANNIBALS!!! Scared the hell outta me whenever i went camping

The bit which always used to freak me out in that film was when Charlie and his grandpa were in that bubble machine. And I always used to get upset at the end when Willy Wonka was mean to them...

You mean when that priest had a boner? Yeah, I was scared that he was going to rape her too. But don't worry, even if he did, I'm sure the tearing of colon tissue was minimal.

Indeed.

I think the genuinely scary bits of The Exorcist are the flash-images of the Demon throughout the movie.  Definately more freaky than that any of the images you see for much longer.

^ I agree, the Demon image flashes on the wall in the bedroom later on in the flick.  But, that first shot of it in the desert takes the cake.

I agree! This movie is so freaky (in the bad way) I can't understand why kids would like it or why the ending where Charlie blasts off trapped in the elevator with an obsessive compulsive  man who gleefully muderes children is a HAPPY ending.

Nobody's mentioned 'Watership Down', but that films is horrific! Honestly, if that amount of maiming, bloodletting and tearing of flesh happened to human actors that film would have been banned! And it's all done by bunnies too! It really freaked me out as a child...

'Willow' scares me (and still does) when they all get turned into pigs. And the first Star Trek film spooked me too (or maybe that was boredom? :P). And nothing is scarier in DR Who then Davros, you just take one look at him and you can tell he's evil incarnate!

Dot and The Kangaroo (c.1977) ...not sure if anyone else has seen this one.  I do remember it weirding me out as a kid...I think I was six when I saw it on HBO.  Funny thing is I can't remember what about it bothered me, I just remember that it did.

Of course!  But that's freaky in a different way - just like any movie with Dick Van Dyke.

Anyways, The Child Catcher:



Freaky.

Wow, I don't remember that child catcher looking quite so scary. Perhaps I was already freaked out at the idea of watching such a crap movie anyway.

Watership Down was indeed horrific, and still is! U cert my ass.
The Secret of Nimh used to scare me, with all those evil scary rats in it.
And the Dark Crystal... also full of evil scary things.
And I didn't like the look of those thing in Labrynth that threw their heads around and danced. Spooky.

For some reason, live action horror movies never bothered me... strange things with cartoons or muppets are far more foreboding.

You're all insane, I mean Charlie and the Choclate Factory scary? Sweet jesus, what was more terrifying to you, the singing midgets or the girl that turned in a giant blueberry?.. Okay so maybe the midgets are a little creepy but I wouldn't go as far as calling it a scary movie.

Chucky 2 I saw as a kid and it's the only movie I can ever remember being scared of, after I watched it and went to bed my cat jumped onto me and I nearly shit myself, damn I hate that doll.

LOL, singing midgets. Everyone I know just calls them oompa-loompas.

Oh yeah, the Child's Play movie was also scary. The first one that is. That Chucky doll scared the hell outta me. I don't remember part 2 well, and after that the series just got goofy.
