Scared the Crap Out Of Me As a Kid!

Every kid has their "I'm creeped out" threshold - here's some of the things that I recall terrifying me as a kid .... 


(Bear Country Jamboree)

Open closet door at night

Mall Santas


Old lady houses filled with figurines and the smell of lavender and moth balls

Dentist's office chair

Cluttered attics

Unfinished basements

Hospital corridors

Baby dolls 

The child catcher from "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang"

Wicked witch and flying monkeys from "Wizard of Oz"

So, feel free to add your own to the list....


  1. I still want my own flying monkey minions

  2. All of the above scared me. I am still leary of those damn monkeys and mall santas.

  3. I`ve got a Dentist appointment coming up soon and add Jimmy Savile.. I never did like him

  4. I had a closet when I was in the third grade in which was located the trap door to the attic. Creeped me out. The attic itself was large and mostly empty. There was an old paper clown mask with yellow yard hair up there. It was all strangely creepy.

  5. I hate ventriloquest dummies! Hate 'em!
