The 'Lonely Water ' ad from the 70's, where the grim reaper lurked beside the waters, just waiting to drag you down down into the murky depths...

Yes I remember that now...the Russians stayed in an apartment block just before the airport....or so I was told.

In the movie 3 men and a baby, theres a scene in it with what looks like a lifesize cardboard cutout of someone behind a curtain, there was a myth that this was the ghost of someone who had been killed on set, presumably a story made up by the movie makers to promote their sh!tty film.
I was terrified, didnt sleep the whole night after watching it the first time and anytime it came on tv I had to leave the room at the part with the 'ghost'. My mother eventually banned me from watching it because id wreck her head and get upset every time it came on.

I used to be frightened by the McSpuds cartoon on Bosco. It was meant to be harmless kids stuff but like a lot of children's tv it had a creepy overtone. It was set in the nighttime in a supermarket and followed a family of potatoes, and their interactions with other food in the shop. It was creepy and dark in its animation and the music was this odd eery supermarket Muzak that I can still hear now, and every character has that all shrill voice that I associate with Bosco presenters generally.

Found this on YouTube, **** me it's still creepy and I'm 38.

My parents use to tell us the fairies would come and take us away if we wore our socks to bed, used to genuinely petrify me! Still wouldn’t dream of doing it!!


Also, my Nan’s old fashioned flowery wallpaper, if I stared at it long enough the flowers would start to turn into creepy, evil faces!


Spent a lot of time being petrified that ‘Holy God’ or Mary would appear to me, used to beg them not to...

You must have been very naughty like myself lol

Isn't it amazing how much fear we had of the Abrahamic religion.

I never feared Thor, Zeus, Beanshees Fairies etc

But that demon from the middle east scared the **** out of me

Some pretty random stuff



Nuns, and in particular photos of nuns from the the 1970s and prior. I had a nightmare about nuns when I was bout 5 or 6 that I remember to this day

When I stayed at my grannys house, I often slept in the living room due to lack of space. She had one of those pictures of Jesus where the eyes would follow you around the room, and living beside a main road, often passing cars would shine their lights into the room and you'd see the man himself staring at you
