Seeing as I don't see one up yet and I am terribly bored today, let's get one started!

What terrified you as a child?

I loved Neverending story when I was a kid and it was such an emotional film. No matter how many times I watched it, I was devastated when Artax died in the Swamps of Sadness, I held my breath when Arteyu passed between the statutes with the laser eyes. And I covered my eyes when Gmork came on. Because that hideous monster was going to come through the TV and eat me!. Looking at it now, it's a pretty mangy looking puppet but 5 year old me was terrified of that thing. It was waiting behind the couch to get me if I got up in the middle of the night. So how about you odeck? What freaked you the hell out when you were a wee geek?
