I wish I had NEVER seen Pet Cemetary as well. I am still haunted by certain parts of that movie.
On a lighter note..I wish I could have the two hours back that were wasted seeing "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" in the theater when I was 12 or 13. ICK! What were we thinking??????
What about you?
Seeing the movie From Hell about Jack the Ripper. I don't know what happened but it triggered something and I had the worst flash back like images and the worst nightmares. It felt like I'd really lived around that time. Freaked me out for a long time.
Both were excellent, but both have scenes that have haunted me since I read/watched them.
I won't say what they were, don't want to spoil them, but anyone who has read or seen them should know.
Well, now that I think about it, almost every Toni Morrison book I've ever read has haunted me since. The movie "Beloved" did too.
Books - the VC Andrews series "Flowers in the Attic" - especially the last ones.
Wish I'd never seen "Happiness" DISGUSTING!
Mom to two boys, 7 and 10. Expecting 3rd boy any day now with DH (his first).
Can't think of any books that I wish I hadn't read but the only book that scared me so much that I put it down was "The Shining" by Stephen King.
I also remember seeing "Audrey Rose" (probably not that scary but I was only 12 when I saw it and it seemed very scary then).
As for reading--one time I read an article in a magazine (about a true story) about a teenaged couple who would kidnap teenaged girls and then sexually abuse then and then kill them in horrifying ways. Just know that these things really happened to these girls is just too much to take. I often lay awake at night thinking about that and wish I did not know the details. They were way too specific in the article.
A babysitter let me watch "Poltergeist" when I was about 12. Huge mistake. I was TERRIFIED for years of my life. I still get freaked out when I think about that clown scene.
I am forever haunted by the Alien trilogy, Something Wicked this Way Comes, and The Shining.
I am so afraid to be anywhere in nature by myself, especially in the dark. Also, any movie involving water that you can't see into. Did anyone see the movie Gator. Terrifying!
On a side note, I think I gained a lot of compassion from watching Old Yeller and Bambi. Two of the reasons why I feel so much for animals.
Midwife, Homeschool Educator and Crafter.
Anyways there is a scene where he breaks into the house while the teenage daughter is on the phone with her mom and he brutally assaults her and the mom is hearing the whole thing. I am still tormented by the scene; it was absolutely gutwrenching.
I also had to put down The bonesetter's dauther by Amy Tan cuz it was approaching sexual assault and it sickened me.
Anything by Quentin Tarantino grosses me out--too much drugs and violence. Also I get EXTREMELY creeped out with movies about serial killers.
Anything about ventrioquist dolls scares the S#$% out of me :
I wish I had never seen ET. I do not like it and it is creepy--especially the part when they are in white suits and go to get testing.
The other one is Haunting at Hill House. I still get nightmares.
Hmmm..........this thread has inspired me to pat a thread in TAO
Funny you should mention ET. My 5 1/2 year old is like her daddy and watches scary movies. She has never had a problem with getting scared. But not ET the thing scares her so bad that she will not even go near a toy that I had of the little guy. Silly girl can quote Lord of the Rings and The Mummy but won't tuch ET with a ten foot pole.
I read Ane Rice when I was a teen. I loved her book but I had some really freaky dreams the entire time I was reading them.
I still haven't really forgiven dh for taking me to see it when we were in college - as he had already seen it and should have known I'd hate it!
