in my closetShow most recent or highest rated first.
When I was young I was afraid to leave closet doors open and walk by open closet doors because I thought miniature people lived in them and would kidnap me if I did.
I used to think that the DJ from the TV show WKRP lived in my closet. I didn't know his name so I just called him WKRP and he was SCARY!
After watching the TV version of The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe I really believed that my wardrobe would miraculously open up to another world. I tried going in there several times and knocking on the wood before I gave up!
my sister told me (and i believed her) that santa's reindeer were living in her closet and he loaned them from her once a year!
i used to believe there was a boogy man so when i was like 5 i would shut the closet door so if he came it would give me more time to get out of my room because he had to open the door.
I used to practice the piano in my grandma's apartment in the basement of our house. I believed that if I played a wrong note, a lion would burst out of the closet door and attack me. But when I did play a wrong note and nothing horrible happened, I figured it would take two wrong notes. And after two wrong notes, it would take three, etc.
I have always thought (and still believe this), that a monster who feeds on fear lives in my closet and if he scares me I won't be able to sleep again. The weird part is my 2 ways to avoid him, fall asleep before 12:15AM or cover myself in blankets and sheets 'cause I think the monster is allergic to the stuff blankets and sheets are made of
as a child my sister and i shared a bedroom and at the bottom of her bed was a huge brown wardrobe, and the only way i could get out of our room was to climb over her bed. well one evening i was about to climb over her bed to go to the toilet when she told me that if i climb over her bed gost and monsters would fly out at me and take me into the wardrobe and would never be seen again. needless to say i never got up to pee
I always insisted on having my closet doors closed when I went to bed. That's because I believed that there were dead bodies attached to my clothes hangers, and when it got dark you could see them, even though they didn't show up if it was light. I had a really vivid imagination, so if the door got left open I could actually see the corpses wearing my dresses.
I truly believed that the devil lived in my closet at night. I remember being more annoyed than angry. I didn't understand why he had to live in MY closet of all places!
When I was young, my father sat with me and watched the movie 'Poltergeist'. The movie convinced me that my closet was a portal that would suck me in randomly, so i used to tie my ankles to my bedposts. When my mom asked me why i did it, i told her i didnt want to die in the abyss. To this day i have never seen a more puzzled look on her face.
I used to believe that if I farted enough, that the vampires and monsters in my closet wouldnt want to come out and eat me, because I was smelly.
I also thought if I was super messy, then they wouldnt want to eat me. Gee how cool was I? Dirty messy room, full of farts. Hey I never got eaten though!
when i was small i thought that vampires lived in my closet and that when u went to sleep they'd come out to bite u and turn u into a vampire.. so i always covered my neck ( still do haha ) with a sheet cuz i thought they couldnt bite through the sheet
my great grandma, when she visited us, would tell me a story each night when i was little. she told me that there was a unicorn in my closet waiting for me to find it. i used to search my closet everyday for the unicorn, but i never found it. but i still believed it was there. it wasnt till i moved that i realised there wasnt a unicorn in my closet.
When I saw ET (Extra-Terrestial) for the first time I was deathly afraid ET. At night, I would sleep with the bottoms of my feet together, afraid that he was going to come tickle them. Also, till this day, (remember the closet scene when ET is looking through it?) I have to close my closet at night (along with my drawers) or else I can't sleep.
When i was little i use to belive that there was a vampire in my closet and a monster under my bed. so at night when i turned my light of i would run n jump in my bed and have the sheets around my neck so the vampire wouldnt bite me. oh yea sad thing is i still get scared when i watch scary movies n keep up with the tradation . . im 15!!!
One night I couldn't sleep and I was playing in bed. My mom came in and yelled because it was 1:00am. She said if I wasn't asleep by 1:20 the pirhanas could come out from my closet and bite off my toes. I was so scared. I made sure I was never awake at 1:20 again!
I used to believe that the Grim Reaper was in your closet and if you were a bad kid he would glide out and slash you in half with his knife thingy
Well.. Kids are usually afraid of monsters under the bed, but in my case it was a vampire in my closet.
I watched the movie MONSTER SQUAD as a kid, and that's where I got the idea.
He was there every night. I had to sleep with my back to the closet. I was afraid that if the vampire knew that I knew he was there, he would kill me. (I guess it was just his hideout!)
When I was young, I used to believe that if a part of your body wasn't covered by your blanket while sleeping at night, that a monster would come out of the closet and eat whatever was showing. This scared the crap out of me and I didn't find out this was false untill I fell asleep one night and didn't have on the covers.
