We all experience fear differently, so everyone’s got their own story to tell when it comes to what made them hide under their blankets. Whatever your memory is, we want to read all about it! But first, here are some movies shared online that’s good to share:

2. Pee-Wee's Big Adventure

Another Redditor replied, “This was my answer.” 

A third commenter shared,”I remember me and my cousin were kids watching that and being scared and trying to overcome the fear lol it being on vhs and all ,we would try to pause / capture the exact moment it showed when she did that lol just the story and experience itself was so eerie itself, the intense feeling was just terrifying.”

Another Redditor replied, “Yes, it started great…” 

Another one shared but with a different scene to share, “Mine was also from The Shining but it was the scene with the guy in the bear costume giving the other guy head. Something so unsettling about it.”

4. Watership Down

Water Ship Down is a movie where when a young rabbit called Fiver (Richard Briers) has a vision that the end of his warren is nigh, he convinces seven other rabbits to join him in quest of a new home.
