what was the first film to really scare you?
I watched the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre when I was about 10 (gotta love grandparents…) but the first film to give me proper nightmares was The Creepshow, the bit with the thing in the crate (I was probably 11 or 12 and didn’t sleep properly for months after).Posted 5 years agopeterfileMember
My brother and I found a video of Hellraiser at 6am one morning when our parents were still in bed. We were very young, he was 5 and I was 7.
I remember feeling absolutely awful after it, I still remember some of the scenes (particularly a man with lots of nails in his face!), which is impressive since I haven’t watched it since…however it started a long love affair with horror films for my brother!

Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The early days of video, my dad foolishly let me rent it, watched it in broad daylight, from behind the couch.
Closely followed by Nightmare on Elm St. Saw that at the pictures and was so scared walking home from the train at night I had to walk up the middle of the road.Posted 5 years agobjj.andy.wMember
American werewolf in London for me when I was about 10. Never got past the moors at the beginning. Put me right off it for years even though everyone used to say it was black comedy. When I finally plucked up the courage to watch it in my 20’s it wasn’t that bad after all. Also watched bram stokers Dracula with some mates in my teens while on magic mushrooms. That was, errr, interesting shall we say 😀 😳Posted 5 years ago
