  • 1. The Last House on the Left

I rented this movie not knowing anything about it when I was around 8 yrs old. If you know this movie's plot, you can understand why I was so traumatized.

  • 2. Audition

As much as I love this movie, it took me a couple of days to shake. The torture scenes are wonderfully disturbing.

3. A Serbian Film

No, just no. This film has everything that’s wrong with the world in it. Necrophilia, all kinds of rape, murder, the baby scene, ect.

4. Final Destination

I know this isn’t the scariest franchise. However, since watching these movies, everyday items and situations have become a potential death scenario for me. A pencil on the floor, my toaster, a tree blowing in the breeze, and so on.

5. Jaws

After I saw this, I refused to go into my 4 ft above ground swimming pool. I’m sure my lifetime phobia of great white sharks is due to Jaws. To this day I refuse to watch shark week and use Calgon.

6. Motel Hell

Everything about this movie freaked me out, especially the scene with the pig head.

That’s just a short list of movies that for some reason or another messed with my psyche permanently. If only I could erase A Serbian Film from my mind! I’d love to know what horror movies traumatized you, ruined your childhood, or just left you feeling the need to shower immediately.
