    There’s no earthly way of knowing
    Which direction we are going.
    There’s no knowing where we’re rowing
    Or which way the river’s flowing.
    Is it raining?
    Is it snowing?
    Is a hurricane a blowing?

    Not a speck of light is showing
    so the danger must be growing.
    Are the fires of hell a glowing?
    Is the grisly reaper mowing?
    Yes! The danger must be growing
    For the rowers keep on rowing. And they’re certainly not showing
    any signs that they are slowing!


    Focus: What childhood show/movie freaked you the fuck out?

    I'll never live down the opening scene of RoboCop

    When I was very young I thought Ghostbusters was wholly terrifying.

    The Bunyip Song from Dot and the Kangaroo, though if you want to get technical about it, that whole movie was just sad and freaky.

    I made the mistake of watching this movie when I was 5.

    Not a movie, but a music video. This came out when I was 4 years old, and you couldn't get away from it on TV (in Britain, anyway). It looks harmless now, but the change halfway through the video is the first thing I can remember being really terrified of.

    When I was eight, I saw the trailer to An American Werewolf in London. I shit bricks on a nightly basis for several months, and kept seeing the white vampire face from the dream sequence every time I closed my eyes.

    Fuck that movie,
    Eight year old Disgustipated.

    Then I grew up and realised how awesome it is. I still get creeped out by the face.

    Definitely large Marge from Pee Wee's Big Adventure. I nearly shit myself the first time I saw this.

    I started out early with my love for horror, so nothing really freaked or creeped me out. That was until I watched Serpent & the Rainbow. Voodoo I can handle. Zombies no problem. However watching a sadistic police chief tell Bill Pullman's character he wanted to hear him scream before hammering a spike into either his scrote or dick freaked me right the fuck out.

    The drunken Dumbo "pink elephants" scene freaked me out when I was a kid:

    When I was a little kid, I went with some people for a birthday party or something to see the movie Matilda. If you haven't seen it, it's basically where a little girl with terrible parents and an abusive school principal develops super powers and goes to live with her wonderful teacher.
    While I've gone back and seen pieces of it today and I just think it's funny, that movie wrought havoc on younger me. Seriously, that principal put kids in things that looked like the Iron Maiden. I was in tears from being so upset when I saw it as a little kid.

    Master Splinter from the original live action TMNT movie. That giant rat freaked me the fuck out.

    This fucked with my head when I was exposed to it at 7:



    Then, my older brother showed me Fritz the Cat when I was about 8. Yeah. That fucked me up.

    Forget Large Marge, Pee Wee Herman alone scared the crap out of me when I was a kid, it was the voice that did it.

    Also, the wolf from Neverending Story:



    And the entirety of this movie, Watcher in the Woods:

    (Pro tip: this is a Disney movie)

    I really hated the scene in Who Framed Roger Rabbit where the bad guy put that shoe in The Dip. It was so sad and upsetting. I think that was the first time when I realized that people could be truly evil.

    I think I was five or so when my folks took me to see Jaws.



    Then there was this.

    This scene always made me so uncomfortable. I just remember thinking "There is nothing good about what is going on here."

    Whichever brainiac in my family decided to let 4 year old me watch Tommyknockers should be shot. I had nightmares for about 6 months and wet the bed several times.

    <a class="postlink" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqFh0QWE-Y0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqFh0QWE-Y0</a>

    That's the trailer, but I'm not even going to watch it because I'm afraid I'll start having flashbacks.

    Fuck you, Disney, for hyping Chinatown On Acid as a summer kiddie flick.
