  1. David Bowie’s crotch in Labyrinth. I don’t know why but I used to be so terrified I’d grow a big bulge like that I would run and look in the mirror just to make sure it wasn’t happening.

  2. Not me, but my brother was afraid of leaves. Like he had a habit of turning off the TV while our parents were watching, so they left a leaf near the switch. It actually worked.

  3. I was scared that
    Osama bin Laden was going to sneak into my house and kidnap me. No idea why I thought his next act of terror after 9/11 would be snatching a 6 year old in suburban Florida

  4. Allowing restaurant servers know what I wanted to eat. I made up facial expressions so only my mom would know my answer to any yes or no question asked by the server. They found out, obviously, when my mom answered for me.

    And how is one supposed to get tasty food without asking for what one wants? 🙄

  5. Men who dressed like rappers.

    I was like 5, and there was a guy who dressed like a rapper at the church my mother took me to.

    I was terrified of him during the whole service…

  6. People with down syndrome terrified me for the longest time when I was a kid.

    I couldn’t see Mad Max beyond Thunderdome cause of that scene where Blaster is revealed to be a mentally challenged adult.

    Ditto for the Goonies sloth scared the shit out of me.

  7. Escalators….
    Ngl I one time got stucked on the second floor of the mall and my mom was at the first floor
    I didn’t even wanna go down the escalator
    My mom had to go up and get me and after a while a security guard came up to me asking where my parents are…I had to point out where my mom was and she got me

  8. I used to be scared to hell and back of my dreams, honestly I am still afraid to go to sleep because when I die in a dream I don’t ever wake up. I later end up waking up with scars and bruises on my body. How? No one knows.

    Once I had a dream that my library teacher turned into a serial killer and killed me during class then cooked me. Locked me in a cage. And then ate me.

    I was in the forth grade.

  9. Bigfoot. When I was a kid, there was a ridiculously, stupidly bad show on tv called Bigfoot and Wildboy. I think it might have even been a Sid & Marty Kroft tv production. Anyway, I must have seen this show at least once, although I don’t remember now, because one night I had a nightmare about being chased by a Bigfoot monster, with him chasing me down an alleyway and me trying to hide in my garage. I still remember that dream, and I remember being afraid of Bigfoot after that. I couldn’t have been more than 6 or 7 years old, but I still remember.

  10. Ive had a lot of weird fears as a kid though the weirdest one has to be the Innate fear of the money “Carl” that would show up after jimmy neutron. STG I thought he was gonna end the world. (Thought he was real trying to escape)

  11. I was definitely terrified of Skeltons. I would have scary dreams about them. I definitely remember having those dreams where a skeleton would chase me down and pull me away somewhere. Took me awhile to finally realise I had a skeleton inside me this whole time.
