What Really Scared You As A Child?

When you were young, what were the things that scared you to death?

Monsters under the bed?
The Boogeyman that lived in the wardrobe?
The thunder and lightning on a stormy night?

For me it was skeletons and skulls on particular. Mo matter how many times my mother or older sisters would reassure me as a 7 year old that skeletons were just our own bones and couldnt harm me, I simply did not believe them.

The sight of a skeleton would really frighten me.

There was the poster for a horror film called One Dark Night, it was in the cinemas circa 1982, around the time that ET was released in the silver screen, and just seeing that poster, featuring a decomposed skull like figure in a cloak with his bony hand menacingly reaching out, gave me nightmares.

In my bedroom at night I was terrified this evil figure was just around the corner of the room, ready to kill me.

So what frightened you?

Ghostwatch. Was a little older than a “child” though.

The dark, and what lurked under my bed in the dark.

Death also terrified me.

I used to have these existential thoughts/daydreams of a white space filled with clay balls. They varied in size from fit in your hand to unimaginably huge, made me feel irrelevant, I don’t matter because these balls can exist at any size.

Terrifying.
