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?
