What Movie Scene Traumatized You As A Kid?
From Flying Monkeys to Oompa Loompas to the stinging reality of MacCauley Culkin and bee allergies, you guys got messed up early in life.
It's scary movie season, but this goes way beyond that. I recently asked people on Facebook what movie scene traumatized them when they were children. To the point where they couldn't sleep for days afterward.
Here are some of your answers:
Chris That f*****g tree in Poltergeist. Still haunts me.
Karen The F'ing closet in Poltergeist, scared me for years!
Brian and for my wife, it’s the clown under the bed.
Josh The hanging mom in Pet Semetary. and the cat in the garage scene made it hair stand up on the back of my neck.
Ollie I forget the Beatles movie, but it was the Beatles shrinking and going down the drain in a tub.
Lee At the end of Bonnie and Clyde when they got shot up really bad. I never saw any action like that in a movie screen or a television screen and I was like, damn
Nikki Exorcist but as an adult. She turned her head and I lost it. And I LOVE scary movies.
Dennis Grandpa took me to see Jaws at the theater when I was 9!
Jennifer PeeWee’s Big Adventure. The Large Marge scene. I was not expecting it all and it scarred me for life.
Margaret Basically all of Beetlejuice..
Tamara I don't think I was a kid...but the scene that always makes me a sobbing mess is the funeral scene for the little boy, Thomas, in My Girl.
Marti The flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz.
Paul Can't remember specifically the vampire film. There were several. At the end when you thought all the vampires had been killed and the kids were getting away in a car, but the kid in the backseat all of a sudden smiles and he has fangs. That freaked me…
Susie The Cowardly Lion jumping through the window when he saw the Wizard - as a kid, that scene scared me.....
Hunter American History X. You know the scene.
Gonzalo Friday the 13th! When she was in the rowboat at the end of the movie and Jason comes out the water on her! Made me jump out my seat!!!!
Red Wizard of Oz. Damned Flying Monkeys!!!!!! To this day, they still give me nightmares, but I like watching it.

Holly Deer Hunter roulette scene.

Genni Whatever movie it was where someone had an eyeball growing in their palm and they gouged it out with a piece of glass.
Rachel Mine was a scene from Fantasy Island. There’s an episode where a man was turning 50 but every man on his 50th axe murders their wife. So the fantasy had a 50th birthday party and as the clock struck midnight, all the dancing guests turned around one by one and had become zombies....

And then there's this regret from Kimmi: "Took my 6-year-old son to Lord of The Rings, was thinking it might have been a bad decision until the of the Uruk-hai. That's when he went from peeking out from under my arm to standing in the aisle yelling 'sweet!' That's when I knew I'd made my biggest parenting mistake ever. He now (26) loves violent tv. Ugh. "
