    Every time I'm at my grandparents house

    if I'm in the bathroom or the spare room and it's night and everyone's asleep I keep thinking someone is awake and walking around out there and I hear like someone walking, but it's never anyone awake. I think cos it's an old house and it creaks a lot.

    I was afraid until my brother started to say he

    saw them. It was a demon, trying to convince him 'she' was good. After I told him to just ignore her, she went away. I'm not longer afraid, just more of annoyed when he sees one. Get a life, and move on. XD my phone also acts up, for examples it suddenly highlights things I text...

    The Monster Man Behind The Door ( Every Door )

    When I was about 6, I saw this movie on television that had a huge effect on me. It was a scary movie, starring Barbara Stanwyk. I don't remember the title or the actor's name, but it was about a scientist who accidentally (on purpose) blew himself up in his laboratory at the...

    Ew

    Indiana Jones and the temple of doom was particularly distressing for me. I'm sure people can relate to the dreadful feeling watching the heart removal scene.

    Being Alone

    I grew up on a large ranch, our nearest neighbors were about 3/4 of a mile away. Grandparents lived a mile and a half the other direction, and some other neighbors, who were elderly, lived "next door". I went to school on the bus, and one day I forgot to stay in town and wait...

    I was afraid of those creepy little alien guys that came to a small boy's window to try to grab him. The were outside the window and the little boy pulled back the curtain, and *SCREAM* There was an alien peering in, holding the little boy's ball, like bait. Superman saved...

    Jaws!

    I saw Jaws for the first time when I was about 6. We were sitting in our living room, eating crisps and I remember not wanting to sit on the floor beacuse it was blue and reminded me of the sea. I was a very 'special' child... It scared me senseless, however my dad found it...
