Traumatizing movie scenes you remember from childhood?

There were so many good old movies. The original Time Machine, and the stopaction movies like The Argonauts and all those Sinbad movies.
Ahhh, I want bothered much by Jason and the argonauts, I thought those movies where cool as hell and still do

Also, anyone else remember that Halloween episode of Punky Brewster where the ghost in the cave killed all her friends?
It was pretty dark for a kids show.


Or when she was stuck in a refrigerator and nearly died?!

My school played Something Wicked This Way Comes because it was a Disney film.

Disney horror flick. Whole movie. not good for third grade.

Let's just say my childhood was really on this awesome downward descent, so I was into She-Ra and Cheetara because they were girls who could fight back.

Not really ready to handle death. So, can't remember if anyone died, I just remember the taste of death and I was out of my mind.

To be honest, there weren't too many movie scenes that ever really bothered me long term. I mean, a scary jump scene will get anyone, but it won't give you a nightmare.

My mom used to show me and my brothers Mexican horror movies when we were kids. They were a handful that she herself grew up watching. I'm a fan of horror because of her, though the price was an intense fear of the dark until I was 16 years old.

Hasta el viento tiene miedo (Even the Wind is Afraid) is the one that stuck with me the longest. It's about a ghost that haunts a tower at a women's college and communicates to a student at night, and in every scene when the ghost is active, the wind blows hard and moans the name of the student. It's an incredibly creepy setup that's hard to forget, and it'll teach you not to stare at empty towers at night. Someone or something might be staring back.

I never forgot this one. Dan Akyroyd plays a grisly judge who sends druggies on a roller coaster that throws them into a meat grinder that spits out their bones. Imagine if this guy were President....

Also, notice the cartoon-y sound effects. O_0

This so much.

I remember being 6 and my teenage older brother was supposed to be babysitting me. He rented The Blob, sat me on the couch, turned off all the lights in the house, started the movie, then left me alone in the house so he could go make out with his girlfriend.

Shit was fucked up. Lol

This fucked me up so much, he was still alive and being digested.

The Blob is some scary shit.
Second that, the only image I recall from it was it seeping through the ventilation grates of a packed movie theater, but...

And of course there was at least three (five?) moments or sequences from Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Let's see ... the boat sequence, the blueberry daughter, and the fizzy lifting soda chamber. "SAW for kids" (as Honest Trailers calls it) is actually a pretty appropriate epithet.

My biggest movie trauma, however, was the "army of PIGS!" segment from the movie Willow. This utterly burned and biased any interest I have in the TF topic and long before I even knew the genre was a thing. (And yet, I'm thankful to have such a traumatic bias on the matter.)

The only movie I ever saw that scarred me was well after I was an adult, I think I saw it at 18 or 19. I was crazy sheltered, but loved spoops, so I binged as soon as I got the chance.

Trigger warning, it's about sexual abuse...
I believe the movie was called "The Hills Have Eyes". It was about a bunch of mutants who had a society in some mountain desert area if I remember right. Some family ended up camping nearby and one of the females with them ended up being taken by one of the mutants for the purpose of the "alpha" using her to reproduce. In one scene one of the non-alpha mutants raped her. I can still remember the look of "satisfaction" on his face as he violated her.

It doesn't frighten me or give me nightmares, but it does make me feel sick when I think of it at times. I'm fortunate in that I've never had nightmares, even during excessive exposure to spoops. When I do dream it's just weird things, nothing I'd ever call a nightmare.

Not movies, but the Bowser portrait in Mario 64 is straight up the reason I refuse to play that game. It was just a combination of the shitty knob television and the surprise of the trap door that ruined that game for me.

The illustration at the beginning of this video was an absolute trauma as well. I actually thought it was the real thing, standing like a statue, fangs beared, ready to attack Atreyu in an instant.

I remember seeing this at an art museum. It might be why I had nightmares about metal bars moving around when I was little.

Y'all might laugh at me for this.

When I watched the movie, "Twister" as a child there was a scene where during a storm the wind chimes were just dinging and blowing around really fast, and then after that a tornado plowed through the town, also destroying Joe's mom's house.

I connected dinging wind chimes with tornadoes after that, and I've had a phobia of wind chimes ever since.

So far the most talked movies being mentioned here are The Blob and The Never Ending Story, movies I haven't seen before, but which I'll have to watch someday judging by how much scared they've left some of you.

Video from hidden camera how they were making me.
 
Watership Down; Bigwig in the wire snare..

The Never Ending Story: I never cared for TNS, it was too dark, ‘hopeless’ & morbid overall. The horse drowning in the swamp scene was too much on its own, though, wtf.
