My dad used to tell me stories on Halloween about "the last house on the corner", and he said you weren't allowed to ring their doorbell, or oyu would be killed by monsters. Well, I believed him, and every Halloween I would freak out if my friends went to the last house on any corner. I would refuse to get candy from there; instead I woudl stand on the corner screaming at my mother to "save" them.

When i was very little, I would go to my parent's room if I had a nightmare.I thought that at one window, an alien would be looking inside,in another a T-rex would be looking inside, and in the last one on the way, a robber would be looking inside.

When I was little, there was a barn just outside my window. On the side of the barn was a wooden ramp used for loading livestock (usually cattle) onto trucks. The streetlight cast a shadow at night that to my young mind looked just like the grim reaper. Every night the grim reaper would appear and keep a long vigil. Worse, the window was at the foot of my bed. I begged my parents to get blinds because it terrified me!

top belief!

I used to think there were monsters in my bedroom. My wall was painted two colors at the time; white a little less than halfway up and pink below. As a way to reassure me that there were no monsters, my parents told me that the person at Lowes mixed in a special "Monster-Proof Fourmula" into the pink paint, and as long as I stayed below the white paint, I'd be safe.
I think this may have also been a way to stop me from getting up at night.
They still keep this up with my little sisters.

I read the pendragon book series so many times that I thought travellers and flumes and territories existed. I was convinced that we were battling for the salvation of earth and whatnot.

when i was little i thought monsters lived in my closet. And the only way to stop them from coming out while i slept was to line up my stuffed animals across the front of the door. I would check in the morning to see if they had been moved during the night.

After the movie Tremors came out I thought that worms-things were real. For weeks after that I would only walk on the sidewalk, I tip-toed everywhere, and when I was in a car, had my mom drive as fast as possible to escape being eaten. I still have this fear that somewhere out there they still exist.

When I was in Kindergarten, an older boy told me that Godzilla lived inside dark clouds and you could only see him by looking at the cloud through a dental mirror. If you didn't keep an eye on the cloud Godzilla would jump out from the cloud and eat you. I carried a dental mirror for a long time after that...

When I was young I was afraid that there was a monster in my room that would take me away and the only way I was protected was if I had a barrier of blankets around my bed and within that barriar I would line my stuff animals side by side around my entire bed. Before falling a sleep I was check the blankets and stuff animals, at least three or five times, to make sure there were no openings because I was afraid the monster was going to take me away.

I used to believe that dummies (as in the puppet kind) came for me everynight to kill me. This was belief was started when I saw the Night of the Living Dummy Goosbumps video when I was about three. I remember pretending to be dead so the dummies wouldent be interested in killing me. This only stopped when I was about nine.

Not really a monster as such, but when I was young I was convinced an evil Egon from Ghostbusters would put up a ladder to my window as I went to sleep. I had to make sure the curtains were completely closed so he couldn't see me.

When I was a little girl, I convinced myself that if the only part of my body sticking out in bed was my face, then a monster would not be interested in eating me. I spent many nights wrapped up in the sheets, w/only my face sticking out.

For a few months when I was around 8 or 9, I believed I was being stalked by an Egyptian mummy. I even caught a glimpse of him once, peering through the closed curtains into the living, but I was too frightened to investigate.

I think it must have started when I would wake up after having a bad dream, and my heart would be beating so hard that I could hear it pounding in my ears. I remember laying in bed in terror because I thought my heartbeat was a giants footsteps, running down the street outside, coming to my house. I was too afraid to look out the window, and of course that just made my heart beat louder and stronger, the giant was getting closer!!! I believed in giants for awhile there, and it happened more than once.

I used to think that my best protection against monsters in the night was to pull my blanket over my head. Now, I'm seventeen and it still doesn't feel right if the blanket isn't on my head
