Movie Nightmares [Infographics]

Last month, I posted the above image that asked, “What movie traumatized you as a kid? on Facebook and Instagram.

After going through the comment sections, here are the top traumatizing movies:

  • The Exorcist was definitely mentioned a few times
  • It
  • Killer Clowns from Outer Space
  • Poltergeist
  • Silver Bullet
  • Psycho
  • The Shining

The Exorcist was the movie that traumatized me. The other movie was Nightmare on Elm Street. I think I was about 6/7 when I saw both films for the first time. I blame my grandmother. I’ve never been a fan of horror movies, but growing up that was the genre of movies she would watch. 

Till this day, I have not seen the movies I mentioned above or any horror movies for that matter, and I don’t plan to any time soon. 😃 I don’t know about you, but I prefer to be able to sleep at night.

Here’s a great infographic, compiled by Michael Brown, that highlights seven of the most terrifying films that have been frightening audiences for years.

Which horror movie kept you awake? Let me know in the comments section below.
