Anything that could swallow you whole in video games. Ugh. Nightmare fuel.

Also, when I was really little, the MGM lion.

Seeing the commercial for Child's Play with Chucky holding a knife. I had to leave my toys in my parents' closet for like a week.
Like Likes are definitely up there.

Beetoms - the fast-jumping things from Super Metroid, which latch onto you:

Nothing like those to cause a panic.

Like, people talk about being scared of Phanto in SMB2. Imagine if Phanto looked like that. Would anyone have made it past world two?
Oh yes! How could I forget Phanto? Part of the reason I was afraid to play SMB2 as a kid was because of Phanto.

Man, there were some sections of Metroid Prime that messed me up. When the lights go out and the Space Pirates are coming at you in the dark? Still gives me the heebie-jeebies.

I think the comments section of the video (timestamped) is pretty accurate.
Man. I haven't watched that flick in years. I should---------it's worth it.

That whole scene is scary as heck. Christopher Lloyd could give Jack Nicholson himself a lesson on creepy smiles.
boo---------------he sold his soul for rocky road

That's for sure. Lloyd's got a better crazy going on, it's all in the the voice. Nicholson is more threatening (Shining--eek) but that's attributed to his actions rather than his lines. Lloyd is just plain disturbing here, makes Hopkins' Hannibal seem likeable. Rather have Miggs fling his business at me than be in the same state as Doom.

The news used to scare me when I was younger. Can't even imagine what the news does to kids these days. Hell, I'm scared of it now.

Horrible CGI. LIke, you ever seen Shark Tale? Yeah, that movie failed not because it was a mockbuster, but because the characters looked like the handmaidens of cthulhu.

Good thing that director isn't-

...oh....
