Pic won't show up for me.  I can't tell if I'll be terrified or not... 

Lucky you. :wacko:

Really loud noises still freak me out on almost a primal level. For example, whenever I'm walking down the street and a cop car comes flying by, the point where it's right next to me as it's passing and the siren is the loudest makes me feel like I want to melt into a puddle. That's an extreme example (and I only thought of it because it happened to me earlier today), but even things being in a car with someone who has the music up way too loud makes me feel SUPER uneasy. 

 

 

When I was a kid, I was freaked out by LITERALLY the worst movie ever made. No joke, it scared the everloving :censored: outta me.

I dated a girl who was seriously afraid of clowns. We went to the grocery store one day after work and there was a clown dancing around the aisles, I don't know what set him off, but he began harassing her and got worse when he saw how much it bugged her. Yes, boys and girls, I threatened to beat up a clown in a grocery store once if he didn't leave us alone.

Don't we all kind of want a clown to give us an excuse?

He can be found at a few car washes around town and I'm very bothered by it. Especially the one that slowly rotates on a giant pole.

Neon signs.  For whatever reason, neon signs terrify me.

We had these fake plants in the house when I was a kid, and they were similar to pineapples in that the edges of the leaves were spiky. I had this dream when I was about 3 or 4 about them becoming alive and chasing me through the house. For the next 2-3 years, I would stay away from them every chance I can, and if I had to go past them I would run full sprint. Come to think of it now, I don't understand young me.

When I was younger, around the same age, I knew two people, my grandmother, and a friend of my grandfather, (opposite sides of the family) that had these plastic fake lilac-esque bushes. Every time I would sit by those, or walk by, I swear they would shake like someone bumped the "plant". I would even stop moving, and watch them shake every once and a while. Always freaked me out. Of course, I haven't had a chance to figure out why they would shake, as I have not seen my Grandfather's friend in a long time, and my grandmother got rid of those...

I also heard "Fire on High" by ELO when I was really young and for some reason, it scared the absolute crap out of me.

That's perfectly reasonable, this coming from a guy who got hooked on ELO a few weeks ago. "The music is reversible...but time is not.  Turn back!  Turn back!  Turn back!  Turn back!"

 

For that matter, Revolution 9 scares the heck out of me every time I hear it.  It's the only canon Beatles track I skip (almost) every time I hear it.

When I was younger I decided to watch E.T. alone. Huge mistake. I was so terrified and creeped out to the point where whenever I used my bathroom I had to check the bathtub to make sure he wasn't in there.

E.T. angered me when I was a kid. The feds set up a roadblock and E.T. magically raises everyone's bikes in the air and the feds don't shoot. That upset me so much, I haven't watched E.T. since it first came out.

I love that song! But I think I know the scary part you're talking about.

Oh, it's a fantastic song, but the first two minutes scared the hell out of me. When I first heard it, at like 5 or 6 years old, I thought the voice playing backwards actually said my first and last name. Listening to it again, it slightly sounds like he is, which is probably why I was so frightened by it.

When I was 4 or 5 (born in 2003), I saw a little bit of the movie Chicken Little on TV.  It terrified me.

 

Also, I used to be terrified of Darth Vader.  I am happy to state that this is a thing of the past.

Wow, you're the only 14 yr. old I know that listens to Beatles canon. Don't you have some Wiz Khalifa you should be listening to? :P

The original Godzilla scared the :censored: out of me for no good reason. It's not scary at all, but when I first saw it, I didn't sleep for a few days.

As a kid I remember watching Star Wars with by dad and being horrified when Vader was unmasked.
