19 people share the movies that traumatized them as kids.


Back in the days of Blockbuster, getting traumatized by the magic of cinema was a weekly occurrence.

A recent Reddit thread asked people to remember the movies that freaked them out for life. Bring on the E.T.-inspired nightmares!

1. Was anyone not disturbed by "E.T."?

E.T. terrified me. Then my dad made it 1000x worse by telling me that the gurgling noises a tub makes as it's draining is E.T. and that he's coming to get me. - goshthisishard

2. "Jaws" ruined the beach for many of us.

Jaws. Can't swim in the sea or a lake without thinking, however fleetingly, that there's a shark nearby. I am convinced, for example, that the Norwegian fjords are filled with Greenland sharks. - WorldBaker

3. Bugs should never be entering bodies.

The mummy. There was a scene where some golden bugs come alive and entered into one of the characters body and i have a phobia of bugs now - kunal445

4. Many '80s and '90s kids developed a fear of clowns because of this one.

The old IT. Mom is a HUGE Stephen King fan, so I was... 6 or 7? The first time I watched it.

Tim Curry, man. I didn't shower without either my mom or sister standing guard for at least a year.
