  1. The Changeling starring George C Scott………. the scene with the empty rocking chair at the top of the stairs chilled me to the bone. Brilliant film (I was into the B&W Hammer Horror and hysterics as a kid)

    • Let me set the scene for you… It was our sixteenth birthday, and we were having a sleepover. Seven teenage girls watching The Changeling in the dark while the rest of the house sleeps. George C Scott’s character takes the ball that keeps bouncing down the stairs and tosses it in the river… you know the scene… He comes home to be frightened by the same ball bouncing down the stairs. My kid brother thought this would be the perfect moment to (you guessed it) bounce a ball down the stairs. I leave the rest to your imagination. Needless to say, my mother was not happy. ^_^

  2. For me, it was the original “Invasion from Mars”. Not the remake of ten or so years ago…that one wasn’t scary, just grotesque. The two creatures (of course they were a bilious green) walking and carrying the head in a glass jar totally freaked me out. That and the parents with the diamond crystal implanted in the backs of their heads.

  5. It was a television show… Kolchak: The Night Stalker… Our dad used to watch it when mom went to work and let us stay up to watch it with him. We were only about maybe nine, I think… There was one particular episode where heavy machinery came to life and killed people. Even up until adulthood, I couldn’t walk down a deserted or even semi-deserted street if there was a crane or wrecking ball parked there. Even now, at age 50, I get the heebie-jeebies walking by heavy machinery.

  6. No gifs and there were more but three stand out:

    1. British TV series “Blake’s 7”. Somebody thought it would be fun if in the last part of the series the spaceship with all the heroes just exploded.

    2. Invasion of the Body Snatchers, 1978. Donald Sutherland and THAT finger-pointing scene. :O

    3. Demon Seed. Julie Christie is raped by a robot. From 1977! And now we all are…
