When I was young I watched a movie about a mummy that (of course) came to life and attacked people. There was a scene where some innocent was passing a doorway and the mummy surprised the passerby and attacked. I was a very big kid when I finally overcame the fear of being attacked by a mummy everytime I passed a darkened room.

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 used to believe cement mixers were big monsters pretending to be cars. From the rear, it looked like they had angry, evil faces. I thought they were holding toxic waste inside for some nefarious purpose, and that they drove themselves- no drivers necessary.

I never had a basement, but for a few years while I was in grade school, I lived in this old house with an attic. I used to believe there was a mystical dragon living up there, and that if I could steal a necklace it protected it would grant me seven wishes. But I was always too afraid of it, and at night the house would creak and groan, and I'd think the dragon was eating the last person who tried to steal the necklace.

When my brother Mikey was about four years old, there was a tear in the curtains in his bedroom. The headlights from cars passing the house would shine through this irregular shape, onto the wall, and they would move across the room as the car moved past the house.
For a few weeks, Mikey would complain every night about the "Toothy Monsters" in his room, afraid that they would eat him. Finally our Mom saw the jagged light move across the wall and showed him what it was, and he wasn't so afraid anymore.

You know those old maps with the pictures of sea serpents and the like on them? Well when I was a kid I thought there really were HUGE sea monsters (as big as islands or continents like the pictures showed) in those places

We lived, when I was small, in an apartment that had an open crawl space under the stairs. I was terrified of this space, and I was convinced that unless I raced up and down the stairs as fast as I could, that giant spider monsters from under the stairs would jump out and get me. I tripped and fell up and down the stairs several times due to the reckless pace.

when i was about 6, i used to believe the bottom drain of our club swimpool connected it directly to the ocean. that's what my older cousins told me, because they knew i was dead afraid of sharks ever since i had watched "jaws". they told me a shark could swim through the drain into the pool any time. i spent months without going into the pool.

As a kid I was always hiding in the cupboard under the stairs, much to my mum's annoyance, as I always pulled the coats down. So she told me that if i didn't stay out of there, a monster would come out at night when i was sleeping and steal my teeth. I tired desperately to fall asleep with my mouth closed!

I used to think that monsters would come and get me after i fell asleep. So I always made booby traps and right after that i would usually fall asleep with the light on. IN the morning hte light would be off and hte traps would be messed up. i thought wow! i taught those monsters! now i know that the "monsters" were my parents who came in to turn the light off

At the age of six, I was terrified of werewolves. I used to hide behind the couch whenever the Thriller video played on TV. Instead of falling victim to a werewolf attack, I decided (imagined) that I had a PET werewolf that I would send out each night to terrorize OTHER children.

When I was a kid my dad told us that there were Gollywoggles (some kind of sea creature) in the lake. I remember my dad told my brother and I to stay away from the water as he saw a gollywoggle. My older brother freaked out and ran right over top of me and left me for the gollywoggles.
I believed in these until I was about 9.

When I was younger, my family was staying at my aunt's house for a coupl weeks, and my cousin who is three years older than us got tired of us [my brother and I] complaining about the 'Boogeyman', so she took ketchup and mustard, squirted it all over a vent, topped it off with a ketchup covered butter knife, and exclaimed, "You guys, look! I killed the Boogeyman!". We were so grateful that we jumped on her and hugged her and almost started crying with happiness, hah. Plus, we could finally sleep well the rest of our stay. We actually didn't find out for a quite a few years that it was just condiments, heh!

When i was very little i used to believe a monster lived under the floor boards. I would feed the moster left over dinner through the gaps in the floor boards so its a wonder we didn't get rats.
