My sister used to get me up in the middle of the night to watch movies like the Crawling Eye, King Kong, and a whole slew of scary movies on television, as a small child, I thought that they were all REAL. At the age of six, I figured that she was telling me the truth about them being real, along with Superman, Gorgo and Godzilla. As a young child this influenced me into learning about dinosurs and by the time I was in the second grade, I knew pretty much all about em, but I still had several weeks of nightmares that kept me awake at night.

I used to belive the Gollum from the Lord of The Rings lived underneath my house, and at night he would scratch on the bottom of our wood floors because he was hungry.

As a child growing up my dad would take my brothers and I to monster movies. I would believe they were real life monsters but the thing I couldn't understand why weren't they in the news at 5:30 PM, which my dad would always watch.

As a child in the early seventies after watching the 20s film king kong with fay wray, i was too scared to sit on the toilet in case i couldnt see behind me that that HUGe gorilla eye was looking through our little toilet window, i was so temted to look but so scared it would be there, i used to make myself cry with fear every time i needed the toilet but i kinda liked it too! then it changed to giant spiders, i had to leave the toilet door open but was terrified that i would see a giant 5 foot high spider walking down the hall past the open loo door. i used to try to finish up so quickly that still to this day i cannot "sit" on the loo for any lenght of time, if i cant do it quickly i dont even try!! i you get my drift!

When I was a kid, I thought that if my hands or feet stuck over the side of the bed, a zombie would grab me and pull me under the bed before eating me. I had my bed propped against the walls for years where I would huddle away from the edge. I still wake up at night when I feel my hand dangling over the side.

When I was 8 I thought there was a monster fish living under the tub that ate everything. Whenever I took a shower at night I thought it would come up from the drain and attack me unless I used a certain soap. The other soaps it would just eat but one of the soaps I thought it hated the smell of so it would keep it away. I called it "Peach Repel." I would cry when we ran out of it because I was sure the monster would eat me if I couldn't keep it away with the Peach Repel. Once I heard strange gurgling noises coming from the drain and I was SURE it was the monster and it was going to come and attack me and then I found out it was just water gurgling in the drain. I stopped being scared of the monster fish when I got into writing stories and in my book series I was writing one of the characters was a girl who invented a potion called Fish X that could turn her into a monster fish. Writing about the monster fish, especially writing about the monster fish actually being just an 8-year-old genius with a potion made me a lot less scared of it.

I was SO easily-scared back then.

You know that noise from the bath when you let out all the water?
I used to think they were monsters yelling and if I didn't get out of the bathroom by the time the noise stopped, the monsters would come out and take me down the drain with them.

I used to believe that if you walk under a tree at night there was a chance that a warewolf would jump on you and attack you. For about four years I did not walk under a tree at night.

I used to believe that if you closed a door on a dark room, then all of these monsters in the room would come out of their hiding places and start partying. I even remember one time when I was closing the door to my parents room, and I said something like, "I hope the monster's have fun." I was one screwed up kid.

When I was a child i believed that there was a monster under my bed and it i didnt get to my bed from the doorway in 6 steps it would jump out and eat me....i had a large room and my bed was on the other side, so on the 6th step i always had to jump. I eventually grew out of this but i always made it to my bed in 6 steps.

The only way to get rid of the boogie monsters that lived in my closet was for my mom to get the broom and sweep them out of the closet, through the house, out the front door, and onto the sidewalk. All the while, she would need to yell, "Go away monsters!" or it wouldn't work.

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.

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...

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 about 5 my big sister told me that mermaids were actually evil - with red eyes, sharp claws and pointed teeth. She said that they could swim into the pipes from the ocean and sneak up on you unawares while you were in the shower or on the toilet to attack. I would only have baths for the longest time because that little drain would OBVIOUSLY block out this big scary monster :)
