    My scariest memory was when I was in a really bad car accident as a teenager and I could not walk after the accident. Watching Michael Jackson’s thriller video as a child is a close second.

    When I was a kid we lived across the street from a Convalescence home and one resident (a tall old woman with ghostly white skin) had a habit of taking walks late at night dressed all in black. One night while walking my dog I felt something brush past me, looked up and came face to face with this scary old lady. It was so dark the dog never noticed her but she scared the hell out of me.

    My scariest memory was when I had my tonsils out as a child and my parents did not tell me. I remember them taking me to the hospital and then going into a green tiled room which was the iperating room and someone putting a mask on my face and count down from 10. When I woke up my throat was very sore and I could not talk or swallow

    Sneaking into the family room when I was a kid. My parents were watching the original Psycho movie on their old black and white tv. I was just in time to see the shower scene. I screamed, my mom made me go back to bed right away. For about a year after I saw this scene, I would not take a shower unless my mother waited patiently in the bathroom. I have seen this movie as an adult, it still gives me the creeps to this day.

    i hung out at a friends in the country a lot and one night there was a lightning storm with very little rain on a warm night so we camped out on his covered porch facing the pasture with cows in the back yard. It was pitch dark except every time a bolt of lightning would appear it would light up the whole yard and the cows seemed to be inching closer and closer with every strike….until i got so creeped out i had my parents pick me up. Those damn cows were out to get us.

    When I was a little kid it was scary going in one of those haunted houses they fix up for people to go through every Halloween.
