Seeing a disturbing movie can really leave a mark on a young person’s brain.
I remember seeing The Evil Dead when I was about 7-years-old and it scared the hell out of me…and set me on a dark path of being obsessed with horror movies. But it definitely did a number on me, I can tell you that much.
In this entertaining Twitter thread, people talked about the movies that traumatized them when they were kids.
1. An interesting choice.
Oh this is a good one.

7. Real-life zombies.
Bro the zombies in Scooby-Doo on zombie island were literally real and the gang lost the camera that had proof on it bro THE ZOMBIES WERE REAL https://t.co/IsO3sywUQ5

8. I remember it well…
“Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”
When they pulled the heart out I asked my mom if I could go play arcade games in the lobby. https://t.co/cTL2rq0LVX

9. You weren’t alone on that one.
Return to Oz. Those wheelers and the heads on a shelf? Come on! I actually thought it was a nightmare for years until someone mentioned hating that movie as well. pic.twitter.com/9K4BroLIm4

10. Afraid of the water.
No doubt about it:
I’m a San Diego native and seeing this with my older sisters when it came out made me give up Boogie Boarding for like a month 😏 pic.twitter.com/pH5usvsoyv

11. Terrorized a whole generation.
Poltergeist. That goddamn clown! Lol. I couldn’t sleep well at my friend’s house because she had one and a closet facing the end of the bed. I did it a few times, though. 😄 pic.twitter.com/pwXsIuPeK3

My dad made me watch Clockwork Orange when I was 12

15. A creepy, underrated movie.
My parents let me watch fire in the sky with them when I was a kid. After that I made a wall of pillows between me and my window for months. pic.twitter.com/uav1B4AGfs
