What Movie Moments Terrified You Most As A Kid?

Buzzfeed got a group of people to watch the movie moments that scared them when they were little. They seem to handle these a bit better as adults, assuming no pants-wettings were edited out. But what movies traumatized you most as a kid?


I think I'm well known for hating every moment of E.T. the Extraterrestrial, because I was convinced as a child that aliens were going to abduct me and E.T. was going to take me back on the misapprehension that I was in any way his friend. Certainly Large Marge from Pee Wee's Big Adventure freaked me out. And I don't think I've ever rewatched The Secret of NIMH in my lifetime.

But let us know what movie moments scared you! Feel free to mention if you've since faced those fears,. If not, maybe we can face them... together. Except E.T. Fuck that guy.

I have rewatched (and purchased) Return to Oz and can now watch even the Princess Mombi's screaming gallery of heads sequence without weeping, but man. Those wheelers did a number on me until I was older than I'll ever admit.
