Last week I thought it would be fun to start a list of movies that traumatized us as kids because we can all think of at least one movie that scared us as we were younger. While it's fun to think about I had no idea so many movies would be mentioned, and so many of the same movies traumatized all of us as kids.

Here is the list of movies that were mentioned when asking the question, What movie traumatized you as a kid?

  • Psycho
  • Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds"
  • Jaws
  • Darby O' Gill
  • The Little People
  • Bambi
  • Beetlejuice
  • The Exorcist
  • It
  • Candyman
  • CUJO
  • 13 Ghosts
  • The Hills Have Eyes
  • Wizard of Oz
  • Children of the Corn
  • Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte
  • Killer Clowns from Outer Space
  • Night of the Living Dead
  • Star Wars
  • Child's Play
  • The Ring
  • Pinocchio's Revenge
  • Jack Frost
  • Don't Go To Sleep
  • Rosemary's Baby
  • Burnt Offerings
  • The Thing
  • Halloween
  • Texas Chainsaw Massacre
  • The Fly
  • Peewees Playhouse
  • Old Yeller
  • Seven
  • The Omen
  • E.T.
  • Mask
  • Grizzly
  • Pet Cemetary

The two movies that got mentioned the most were probably Jaws and Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds". I was surprised to see The Wizard of Oz mentioned multiple times as traumatizing to kids. I understand how Bambi could scare a kid with the scene involving Bambi's mom. Another movie I didn't expect to be mentioned was Star Wars but when you're a little kid Jabba The Hutt could be intimidating.

Is there any movie that traumatized you as a kid that didn't make it on this list?
