When I was young, I used to watch horror movies that came on Saturday afternoons, or occasionally Friday nights if I could stay awake that long. One of them had a woman look into a mirror and and evil witch/demon/whatever looked back at her (can't recall the details). Thirty-something years later, I still refuse to look into a mirror at night because it creeps me out! Oddly enough, though, I never fell prey to the "Bloody Mary" tale, nor do I remember believing there was another world on the other side of my mirror.

I used to believe that if you were caught alone with a TV that was turned off at night then it would try to manipulate you into "entering" it so that you can entertain others in some sort of magic TV land forever.

I also used to think that any sort of reflective surface I looked into was not reflecting my image, but what I would look like if I was a part of the television's world.

At the end of The Simpsons, there is a short scene after the credits with a bunch of people sitting in a room watching a movie. One of them says, "Shhh!" and then some music plays. This used the scare the HELL out of me. I thought I was watching people who were already trapped in the TV and had basically adapted to their new lives.

When I told my older sister this she marely reinforced these ideas. She also used to turn the volume WAY up when The Simpsons ended, then she would hold me down in front of the TV so that I could watch the people at the end...

I think I was 4 or 5 at the time.

When I was 6, I was afraid to go in my aunt's closet because I once saw the ghost of a little boy inside it. Some years later, I looked inside with a flashlight only to find a mirror in the back of the closet.

I used to belive that there was an evil man living in my mirror called "FRED" who watched me as I slept - who was basically an evil man (ie - the old man from Poltergeist 2/3 - that movie scared the crap out of me!)

Anyway - I am now 25 and I dont have a mirror in my bedroom, and if I am in a room with one I have to cover it with a towel.

I used to believed the one inside the small oval mirror was my twin sister. She share everything with me, happiness, sadness, loneliness and jealousy.

One day I looked too pale in front of the mirror. I tried to put on much more cosmetic with thicker eyeline & redder lipstick. Oh ! I was scolding and teasing myself with tears,"How come you're so ugly today?? Damn you!!" when I carelessly pushed the mirror to floor and then it's broken.

After that, I found the one inside any mirror wasn't me or my twin sister inside the broken oval mirror. My eyes inside the mirror was so strange, They were icy, sad and full of hatred.

Aiya...now I was only 25, how come others felt I was over 30?! I got much older after lose of my twin sister...

When I was young and my father brushed my hair before school in front of our huge bathroom mirror, he used to say "look at the monkey in the mirror." I looked for the monkey until I was 6 or 7. When I figured it out, I told him there was a big hairy gorrilla behind the monkey.

When I was about 8, a boy in my class told me that if you looked into the mirror at midnight you would see Satan. Ever since then I havent been able to look into a mirror in a dark room!

For as long as I can remember I've thought that there are people watching from behind fitting room / public bathroom mirrors. Someone told me this ridiculous trick to see if it's a "real mirror" or not... and even though I know it's preposterous, I still do the mirror check every time I'm in a room with a mirror. I'm 26!

When I was young, I thought that if you turned a mirror around, you could see the back of your head. I was always in a bad mood, because it never worked for me!

i thought that bathroom mirrors were cameras and that perverted people were watching my every move so i would go to the bathroom in really elaborate ways to maintains my privacy. what further enhanced that believe was that my uncle turned out to be a child molester and i thought that meant he spyed on kids through mirrors because no one told me what really happened.

I don't know where it came from, but I was always scared to wipe away the fog from the mirror when I got out of the shower. I thought either the guy in the mirror would be doing something different than me or it would be a skeleton. Mirrors still freak me out.

When I was about 7 I stared at my reflection for minutes to see if it would jump out and try to scare me.
Another time I tried to have a staring contest with my reflection. Soon I found out it always ended in a tie.
