    The movie Poltergeist scared the crap out of me for the longest time. I saw the movie way too young (I think I was 7-8 years old) and was convinced for years that the TV was going to suck me in, a clown was going to come attack me from under my bed, or that I was going to get sucked out my window somehow. I seriously jumped into and out of my bed for YEARS because of that movie and still get the willies every so often when I'm sleeping in unfamiliar places.

    Those two freak me out, as well. If they're ever on one of the movie channels, I ain't watchin' 'em and you can't make me.

    Clowns make me very uncomfortable, not sure if scared is the right word but very uneasy.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    The original movie Phantasm gave me nightmares for weeks. To make it even worse, we lived in the country, lots of trees, and not far from an old cemetery... I have never been able to rewatch that movie in the past 30-odd years since...!

    The original "Don't be Afraid of the Dark" with Jim Hutton and the girl from True Grit was extremely scary. I liked the remake a lot too, but more so for the story than the scares.

    Guillermo del Toro's The Orphanage was good and creepy as well.

    I stumbled across "28 Weeks Later" on cable on a late winter night and it scared the pee out of me.

    That peppy "Wonderful! Wonderful!" song playing during a particularly violent scene...yeeesh, I just got the chills again.

    I believe the sheriff was named "Andy" and his deputy was "Barney." Extra laughs.

    Same here! We had a VHS copy when I was a kid, and even though it scared me to death, I'd still try to watch it. I think I'd get about 30 minutes in, and turn it off every time.

    When I was a little bit older, Twin Peaks terrified me. BOB is the single creepiest thing I've ever seen on TV.

    Looking for a certain frisson that the season often finds.

    Poltergeist being rated PG is just about my favorite thing ever.
