I Used To Be Afraid

Of Monsters and Ghosts I Saw In Movies and On Televison 68 People

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    The Ghost In The Wall

    I grew up in a house that was built around 1865, out in the country. It was a beautiful house, with shining wood floors, carved doors, crystal doorknobs, sliding 'pocket doors', and a staircase stage that led up to the door to the stairs. The house was in excellent condition...
