I can't watch anything that's even remotely startling/scary/spooky.  I do like to watch reruns of Full House late at night though?

Ha. I grew up watching Night Stalker and some other really scary ghost program (I'll have to google it.)  Really scary *&^%, but since my older brother watched it, I wouldn't be outdone.  The worst were the dolls-come-alive, as I had a lot of Madame Alexander dolls.

I guess it prepared me for working on a purportedly haunted archaeological site, however.  We won't talk about the weird *&^% that happened that summer ;).

Ooh, I totally did, too!

::high fives::

My brother got to watch all kinds of super-scary R-rated stuff at his dad's house, and then he would come back and do dramatic retellings for me. I found those scary enough without even watching the stuff.

Also, the movie for Roald Dahl's Witches was my Big Scary for probably three or four years. For some reason it just REALLY GOT TO ME. ::shivers::

Many of my irrational fears can be tied to an unfortunate viewing of the movie "It" when I was eight.

I think Dahl is the Stephen King of children's book.  Uggggghhhhh ::::shivers:::::

Roald Dahl is amazing as a kid.

Then you reread those books as an adult and you can't believe they let children read his books.

Totally  :D

I read his books, btw, as first editions.  I remember waiting, with bated breath, for the next one to come out, as children recently awaited the HP series.

Many of my irrational fears can be tied to an unfortunate viewing of the movie "It" when I was eight. 

And mine "The Shining."

If we're being honest, nightly local news also scared me with great frequency.
