For me it was, "THE THING"! and all I remember was when it broke down the door to the lab to attack those inside.

I relate to it well.The movies that were in black and white and showed less gore were the BEST!

Any scary movie traumatized me when I was a kid. The ones I most remember are The Fly, Naked Jungle and Tarantula, but there were many more.

There seems to be a theme here. I don't like insects and bugs, especially giant ones that want to eat you up or stomp on you.

I won't watch scary movies now if I can possibly help it.

I was traumatized by R rated movies.  Jaws scared me as well.

Definitely The Exorcist but I wasn't a kid. I was in my late 20s. We had just moved out of town to the country. It was too quiet and I had trouble sleeping. We went to see The Exorcist and that night, while trying to sleep, i heard "knock, knock, knock," on the bedroom ceiling. This kept up off and on for a couple hours. No sleep for me but hubby slept soundly all night. That was enough to want to move back to town. I found out later that week that it was a squirrel who was moving his  stash of black walnuts around in the crawl space attic. it sounded like he was playing basketball with the walnuts.  Imagine the relief I felt after that! 

BTW, I have never, ever watched The Exorcist on TV. It still freaks me out.

The Birds. Yes I am old enough to remember that. I wouldn't go outside for several days.

Jaws and Arachnophobia. My sister and I couldn't swim in a pool by ourselves till we were adults. I still get scared sometimes.

Pet Sematary was so scary. As a kid, my mom said I shouldn't watch horror movies because I would have nightmares... she was right. And I still haven't watched the Exorcist.   :-\
