Prom.  I was terrified of prom, oh and plymouths.  Sounds bizzare but as a little kid my aunts thought it was a good idea to take me to see Christine and Carrie at a drive in.  I was way too young for those movies, maybe 4 or 5.  Still cannot watch them to this day.

I was scared of the movie Matilda, Mrs Trunchbull scared the living daylights out of me! Funny how I always obeyed all the rules in school, avoided getting detention at all costs.

Bambi and Dumbo! I was afraid my mom would get taken away.

I also used to think lifesized teddy bear in the corner of my room was trying to kidnap me in the dark. I’m still pretty afraid of the dark and sleep with my tv on when I’m alone.

 

 

Creepy.

@StuporDuck:  I am not unhappy that plymouth closed in 01.  I still will not get into one, totally irrational, but I swear they have headlight eyes and the car will stangle me with their creepy seat belts.

I used to be afraid of not being blonde any more. Both my parents used to be blonde and then just became brunettes as they aged. I was terrified it would happen to me!

I was also scared of the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz. I would hide behind the couch whenever her theme music played because I knew that she was coming. 

I was also scared of man hole covers on the road. I thought that my sister would be sucked in! I used to dream about it. Not sure where that one came from.

And the dark. What kid isn’t scared of the dark though?

Oh! And that I would be swimming in a pool and there would be a shark or crocodile in it and I would have to get away from. I would always check for one before going in the pool.

I was so afraid of The Little Mermaid. Ursula scared the heck outta me!

I was also afraid of thunderstorms. Like, phobia afraid. I still get anxious during storms.

i was afraid of dinosaurs. i watched jurassic park (without my parents permission of course) and had nightmares for years. then my parents made me go on the dino ride at disney world and i was practically hyperventilating. i closed my eyes and put my hands over my ears the whole time.. they ended up buying a picture from the ride because they thought it was funny. even though they are obviously still not around.. i still can’t watch anything with dinosaurs in it!

@Everdeen:  I was scared of the Wicked Witch of the West too, “I’ll get you my pretty, and your little dog too!” Miss Gulch mainly because she took away Toto! I still cry when I see that bit, horrible woman!

I used to try to leap from the doorway to my bed to avoid the monsters under there… And no part of my body could dangle over the edge. Hell, I still don’t like dangling my arms over!

Aliens. I did not get over it (and I’m still freaked out by the ones with the huge black eyes), until my twenties, so it wasn’t until then that I saw ET, Star Wars, Lilo and Stitch or anything.

Now….zombies. Holy crap they scare me. Mr. D has to watch his shows and movies and play his games when I’m not home. I seriously cry. I try not to, but they scare me that much. Which sucks because they are EVERYWHERE now.
