Even if you don't enjoy the thrill of being scared, you remember the horror film that frightened the hell out of you as a child.

Today's burning question came from Redditor xXMr_BaconXx, who asked the online community the following question: "What movie did you see when you were "too young" that scarred you for life?"

Some of you can relate, we're sure. And if you can't, better add some of these to your watchlists!


"My young mind was not ready for that movie."

Giphy

The Fly (1986)

My young mind was not ready for that movie.

"But I think it's mostly due..."

Giphy

Jeepers Creepers. But I think it's mostly due to the fact that my older brother convinced me it was based on true events.

"I didn't sleep for an entire summer..."

Giphy

I snuck in to see The Exorcist when I was 12. I didn't sleep for an entire summer. One morning, about 6am, a woodpecker or some bird got into our attic and was pecking and flying back and forth. I woke up my younger brother and sister, made them come with me to the attic door. I made them hold hands with me and say the Our Father. I was out of my mind.

"I still get a little freaked..."

Giphy

Pet Cemetery. I still get a little freaked when getting out of bed in the middle of night for fear a crazy undead child will slice my Achilles with a knife.

"That movie messed me up..."

Giphy

The Hills Have Eyes. That movie messed me up for a long time.

"I was around 8..."

Giphy

I was around 8 when I tried seeing the first Aliens movie. That first chest burster scared the shit out of me.

"I was around 7 or 8 at the time..."

Giphy

The Ring. I was around 7 or 8 at the time and had never watched a scary movie before. Anyways made it to the end of the movie completely sh!tting myself. Used to sleep in my clothes, pee in jars and hide them in a drawer to avoid going to the bathroom late at night, if I was brave enough to make it to the bathroom I would sleep on the floor. Had an old tv in my room at the time that I would cover at night with a blanket lol this went on for easily a year then I started to get over the fear decided I was gonna watch tv one night flicking through the channels and what do i see? The Ring 2

So yeah seeing wells or TV static still sends a chill down my spine.

"I will never be old enough..."

I will never be old enough to rewatch Requiem for a Dream.

"No idea why my dad..."

Giphy

Pans Labyrinth. No idea why my dad thought a 10 yr old would appreciate a foreign language art film, but that freaking creepy guy with the damn eyeballs in his freaking hands still haunts my nightmares.

Macramelon

"Even as an adult

Giphy

The first half of Stephen King's IT when I was 8 has scarred me for life. Even as an adult, I know that the film was laughably bad in effects, but I can't be near a clown without fight or flight triggering.

"Weeks and weeks of nightmares..."

Giphy

Poltergeist.

Weeks and weeks of nightmares centered around that thing that honestly looks like it was made from paper mache, and the skeletons. I was goddamned terrified of skeletons as a child.

"I was 25."

Giphy

Watership Down ... I was 25.

"...I could imagine The Blob coming after me..."

Giphy

The Blob (the 1988 remake); saw it at a sleepover when I was 10 or so.

For weeks and weeks afterwards, whenever I took a shower, I could imagine The Blob coming after me through the shower head or the faucet.

leaflitterer

"NO."

Giphy

EVENT HORIZON. Rented it from the ol' video store back in the day because it had Sam Neill in it. He was in Jurassic Park, should be a fun time, right? NO. F*ck me. Still gives me the willies.

MelGibsonsButt

"Did not sleep well after that."

Giphy

Watched A Clockwork Orange when I was about 10, with my dad.

Did not sleep well after that.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
