Welp, what scared you as a child? I can imagine in our younger years, we had stuff that scared us. Believe it or not, when I first discovered Youtube, (I was about 11 or so), I found out about this video. After I watched it, I was terrified that whenever I was alone in a dark room, some creepyass music would play out of nowhere, and then bam - some creepyass face just pops out of nowhere in black and white and I flip out. Fortunately, that never happened. But in the mind of a child, it could've very well happened under the right circumstances.



So, what used to scare you?

Chucky. lol

It took me a few years before I could sleep at night without the covers over my head.

I also used to think if I had any part of my neck exposed while I slept, a vampire would drink my blood.

This board game called Atmosphere. I was young when i played this, about 7-8. I have no idea what the game was about, but it came with this creepy ass video of a man called the "Key Keeper" or something like that. And the video timed down and he would dish out rules ETC between rounds. As the game progressed his appearance changed and he began to look creepier and creepier. When i was that age, it was freaky sh*t.

Now it's creepy because he reminds me of Slamman:

My mom watched a lot of horror movies when I was a kid, and my dad bought me Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark (the big collection that had all three volumes in one). Every night I visualized a serial killer slowly walking through the driveway, into the house, up the stairs, and then I'd be able to see them in my doorway.

I also often imagined that a wild dog would somehow get into our house and start tearing the place up and killing the cats and my baby sister.

I remember that show being pretty weird at times, but it's been a looooong time since I seen it. That blue dude just looks f*cking strange, and well, creepy.

I was afraid of the idea that God didn't exist or that He purposefully chose to ignore me when I was younger. The presence everyone talked about when discussing Christianity was never there for me, so I felt as though I was lacking some crucial part of being alive. I spent many days biking to this church and that, praying and listening to preachers to see if anyone had the feelings I needed so badly.

I remember running crying to my mom because I was afraid of Voldemort in the first Harry Potter movie. Besides that, Courage the Cowardly Dog. What has been seen can't be unseen...

Also, Spiders scares the sh*t out of me. Always been afraid of 'em don't know why.

I was scared that a yeti would crawl out of the TV from Nenas armpit in the '99 red balloons' music video and simply devour me...

Haha, yeah. I played the "sequel" of that game...



It was so goddamn complicated, but the video was f*cking creepy.

I was also scared of this scene in Ghostbusters...

Fires, old bells, and being home alone whilst hearing noises upstairs that were not from the house settling.
