Little Creepy Things: Innate Fear
Sure, it’s easy to be scared of Godzilla and King Kong. They’re enormous and can crush you, but there’s another fear in the spectrum of humankind. Fear of small things.
That makes you smile, huh? Don’t believe it? How could I be scared of something tiny?
Have you ever watched film of a tarantula, his fuzzy soft legs creeping one after another up someone’s arm? Tickling and crawling, and making its way towards his face. Gives you goosebumps, huh?
How many times have you cringed and freaked when you ran into a spider web in a basement or startled a mouse from his corner hiding place? Do bats flying in the night air make you duck?
Haven’t had enough of small creepy things? Try these movies:
Phantasm: Creepy little shrunken down people in black cloaks.
The Brood: A woman’s anger creates little creepy “children” who kill for her.
Don’t be Afraid of the Dark: A house with hidden little brownie elves that torment the woman who resides there.
It’s Alive: After giving birth to a murderous little baby that kills the entire delivery team and escapes the hospital, the detectives are on the search for an evil deformed baby-thing.
Chucky: A doll comes to life to kill and torment full-grown adults.
Leprechaun: An angry leprechaun wants his pot o’ gold back.
Children of the Corn: The youth of a town kill the adults and take over, making sacrifices to the corn monster.
Parasite: A scientist has to hide his creation inside of him, an evil parasite.
Arachnophobia: Killer spiders hitchhike to America and breed and kill.
Kaw: Evil blackbirds attack a town.
The Birds: Birds go insane in a town in Northern California and attack the people.
Infested: Teenagers camping out are attacked by mutant bugs.
Trilogy of Terror: A trilogy of stories, one of which involves a woman in her apartment attacked by a zuni hunting doll.
Village of the Damned: Little tow-headed children with alien fathers put an entire town in fear.
What little thing scares you? For me, it's dolls!
