When we were kids, this was probably the scariest shit we'd ever seen.
O Canada. It would play on Cartoon Network late at night. Oh god. I still have nightmares about it.

To this day, I can't watch this or the 1968 version because it scares the living shit out of me. And also, even though most of the movie is hilarious NSFW: [sp] http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Xdw1S29OyaA/Tg04vfeD3oI/AAAAAAAABXc/GtjtrwXco0c/s1600/trash%2B2.jpg [/sp] This moment in Return of the Living Dead, when the nuke is going off and it's a freeze frame on her, I'm terrified of it.

[QUOTE=Loofiloo;31539880]I watched Are you Afraid of the Dark a lot as a kid, but only one episode ever really truly scared me. I can't remember what it was called, just that it involved some kind of vampire monster that was loose in a hospital. The first time I saw it, I couldn't watch it all the way through. I didn't see it air again for years, and I thought maybe it was so scary that they decided to never show it again, but it was eventually re-run. I'll see if I can find the episode title. I'm sure I'll remember when I see a list of them Ok I'm pretty sure it was "The Tale of the Night Shift" and this was the monster: [img]http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lfvh6iqKCH1qezfr5.bmp[/img][/QUOTE] This. Just watch the intro, fucking creeping. [video=youtube;jitg-3xbmKU]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jitg-3xbmKU[/video]
I was really scared of an X-Files episode. It was about a bomber who blew himself up and somehow got back to life. Also the episode from Aladdin where they went up to a castle in the sky and awoke a cyclops with a ruby eye.

Frankenstein (1994) gave me nightmares
Ooh, and this. Big time. [img]http://www.allouttabubblegum.com/main/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/aterminator.gif[/img] And Terminator 2. [B]Especially Terminator 2.[/B]

[QUOTE=lemongrapes;31564995]Jeopardy: I refused to watch it as a kid, so tense and scary for a kids show. [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeopardy_(BBC_TV_series)[/url][/QUOTE] I remember the last episode of that show where the two children saw themselves in the past or something and it just ended. :suicide:
The last time I talked about these guys, I was not kidding. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-9lbreuuyc[/media] The actual Muppet versions of these gave me the creeps, not two random unforeseen teens in costumes.

I can see why you'd find them creepy as a kid, though. I never watched the muppets too much when I was young.
Bagpuss made me freak the fuck out for some reason, and there was this Christmas film I can't remember, stop motion and it had this little robin helping a statue that was losing all it's bronze coating or something, and then the robin dies at the end. Depressing as hell and really obscure, something from way back when I was a youngun

I realize it may not be a tv program, but the emergency broadcast testing always made me want to curl up and cry to sleep. I think it may have even scarred me, I rarely watch any program past 12 am nowadays.
power rangers
Not gonna lie, when I was real little, I was terrified of Cookie Monster. That blue fucker gave me nightmares all the time. My reasoning was always the same, "He eats everything, even the plate!" I was a pussy when I was little.
Whatever that one show was with the intro of a swing - swinging by itself and it always started with people sitting around a camp fire. It was on Nickelodeon. Weird shit.
also, when I was fairly young I caught the beginning of Menace 2 society, and the robbery scene at the start where the Korean woman is screaming gave me nightmares [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8lRjXf2IK0[/media] real shit like that has always been more unsettling to me than supernatural horror.

I couldn't even watch The Hunchback of Notre Dame because Frollo scared the shit out of me. I watched it for the first time when I found it while looking through old VHS tapes when I was about 15. Fucking amazing villain, but I can see why I was afraid of him, he was very intimidating.
The rape scene in Anthony Hopkins' Titus Andronicus fucked me up as a 13 year old as well

Jurassic Park it doesn't help that I was 5 when I first saw it.

"The Mangler (1995)" the part where the fridge is possessed by a demon. That shit freaked me the fuck out when I was little.
