I remember seeing "Children of the Corn" when I was a kid. It was on VHS, so probably about 6 months after it was released. My dad & step mom never edited my TV/movies viewing or the music I listened to. I saw plenty of R rated movies as a kid. But, that scared the hell out of me. To this day, I will not go in corn fields, especially at night & the name Malachi is the creepiest name on the planet to me.
So what scared you?
We lived in a house that use to be part of a plantation. Only a small portion of the house was actually from the 1800's. The rest had been added on later. My bedroom was one of the oldest parts of the house. My bedroom was also right below the attic and I constantly heard footsteps. My dad even checked in the attic but never found anything other than a race ticket that had "whites only" on it. I saw a "ghost" (an older black man) outside of my bedroom once and he was mumbling something to himself about killing. There were many other strange and unexplained things that happened. So, as a child, I was very afraid of the dark and of my bedroom!

I was a kid when Jaws came out. Then we had the Exorcist, American Werewolf in London, Nightmare on Elm Street, & Alien. I can't tell you how long I slept with the light on & I even refused to swim at night, in a pool!
