I used to believe that the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz was actually a giant, bent double with an animatronic head. I do not know why.

I used to believe that every movie had a painted backround and nothing was real! I would always say it looked so real!

I used to believe, after watching "The Blob" at a young age, that having nothing touch the floor (i.e.- my bed covers) would keep it from oozing onto my bed at night. That fear diminished, however, during the winters, since the Blob couldn't survive in the cold.

There's this Disney movie called "The Great Mouse Detective", about how the mouse who lives in Sherlock Holmes's house is also a detective.

In the very beginning, when Fidget was about to kidnap Olivia's father, there's a shot of the door handle moving up and down, and Olivia yells "What's that?"

I used to think that she said "The satch!" and that a satch was another word for a door knob.

I used to think that Mary, Kate, and Ashley were three girls and I was always like WHERE'S THE THIRD ONE? I told my friend this and she said she used to think that Mary Kate was one girls full name and Ashley Olsen was the other girl and she always wondered how they looked so much a like without being related.

When I Was 5, I Was Afraid To Watch Scary Movies, Because I Thought That If I Watched Them By Myself,The VCR Would Become Haunted And The Tape Would Get Stuck On Really Horrifying Parts When I Tried To Eject It To Keep From Watching. I thought That Some Invisble Force Would Pull My Eyes Into The Direction Of The Movie And Make Me Watch It.

When I was 5, I saw Tremors with my 8-year old cousins. I was sooo scared. For the next month or so, I kept running to where I need to go. Like, if I needed to go from the couch to my bedroom, I would run like lightning to my room and hop on my bed as fast as possible.

When I Was 5, I Used To Believe That Whatever You Wrote On The Outside Of A VHS Cassette Tape, Is What You Would See. So I Wrote, "Grown People Movie" On The Side And Inserted It Into The VCR.I Still Saw Little Red Riding Hood, So I Figured It Didn't Work, Because I Probably Spelled "People" Wrong.

When I was about four I was in day-care, and we always watched movies there. One of my favourite movies was Home Alone which the day care occasionally put on. One day I really wanted to watch the movie, except I didn't know the name. So I started yelling, ''I want to watch Kevin! I want to watch the Kevin movie!'' (Kevin is the main character in Home Alone). It took a few minutes for the day-care staff to figure me out.

I used to believe that the "million dollar movie" that used to run on NYC TV stations at 4pm was actually 2nd run features of movies that had already been shown to a select group of affluent people that literally paid one million dollars to view the movie.

It seemed odd to me that people would spend so much to see a movie before me, but then again, some of them were pretty good. (I think I held this belief because my older brother told me this was true -- nasty!)

When Jaws was just released it was the scariest film i had ever seen. I actually belived that a "Jaws" would come up the toilet and bite me on the bum! Took me a while to get back on the toilet and a lot of convincing from my folks telling me he could'nt fit through the pipes!

This is more of an event than a belief.

When my cousin(4 yrs.) was in church one day and going up to communion, there was someone who had glasses and hair like Harry Potter. So he said" Look Mom! It's harry potter!"

When I was younger, my uncle really loved the movie LaBamba and he would watch it often when I was over. I always thought that Richie Valens name was actually La Bamba until the time I was 12 or so.

I remember asking my dad once very seriously why people in the olden days walked faster. The old black and white silent films from way back when were always showing people moving faster...

I loved the movie Puff the Magic Dragon except for one part...
When puff pulls jackie's "living thing" out of his ear and puts it into the paper jackie. oh, God...
I was terrified that Satan was going to pull out my soul through my ear. Now tell me, what kind of thing is that to put on a children's show?!

When I was 6 or 7, I was leaving my friend Mason's house when an ad for an R-rated movie came on the TV. I said the movie looked cool and he said "Too bad we can't see it, 'cause it's rated R, for adults." For some reason, I heard "'cause it's rated R, for dogs." My parents were unable to convince me that R-rated movies weren't for dogs and were actually for grown-ups. The next time I went to Mason's we straightened it all out, but to this day whenever my parents hear "Rated R" at the end of a movie advertisement, they'll say "for dogs!"

My mom forced me to watch those Nightmare on Elm Street movies when I was 5 and it scared me to death. Inspired by a sceen in the movie, I was afraid to take a shower/bath for I feared that Freddy would pop out of the shadows and slit my throat.

When my friend was little her and her brothers used to go to the video store to rent a movie and they always wanted to rent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which she hated. She would find a different movie but they would tell her "You have to find one with the movie in it otherwise they don't have it" so she would go down every aisle picking up every case to find one with a movie in it....needless to say they always ended up with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
