When I was about 8 or 9, my older sister was watching Edward Scissorhands. I was allowed to watch it with her because everyone thought I was old enough...however, the scene in that movie where he lightly touches the guys face and it bleeds scared me to death. For 6 months, when I walked down the hall (one floor, long hallway), I would stop at every door and peek in to make sure that he wasn't standing in the doorway to cut my head off.

Even when someone was walking with me...I wouldn't tell them the reason though because I didn't want him to go after them as well.

i once believed that indiana jones was a real person. i presented this theory to my brother and he informed me that he had been a real person but he had died long ago. so id often pray that god would take care of indiana jones and i would often look up to the sky and imagine him looking down and watching over me from heaven. im still kind of a movie nerd.

My older brother told me that he was harry potters twin brother and every time I wrote a letter to one of the characters, he would write a letter in cursive in reply and stain it with tea to make it look "magical"

When I was younger, this girl my aunt used to baby-sit was my best friend. We were together every day. And our favorite movie was Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory. Well, I had this little swing set in my yard, and we'd find a stuffed animal that had wings, like a bird or something, and we'd write a note saying we'd were at the Chocolate Factory. We thought we could swing to a cloud and find the Chocolate Factory, and use the flying stuffed animal to get us there!

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.

My twin sister and I used to believe that we could do every dance move the people in Dirty Dancing did. I can't tell you how many times we about knocked each other out when we would try to through a leg on the other's shoulder like they did in the first dance scene.

I misread the title of this B-movie, "The Creature from the Black Lagoon", when I was a kid, so I'd squeal, "The lagoon is coming to get me!" all the time.

My parents tried to explain it to me, but I guess I never got it.

When I was around eight or nine years old, I always used to hang out with my "favorite" cousin who was three years older than me.

One night, my cousin, his friend, and I were outside of his house playing around and talking when suddenly his friend called me a "fag". Being older than me and trying to act cool, they wouldn't tell me what it meant. A few minutes later, they told me that the "Candyman" (from the popular horror film) would get me. Being absolutely terrified, I ran in the house to my mom.

"Mom! The Candyman is going to get me! Does he only come after fags?" I was terrified.

Looking back at that now, mom probably laughed about that with her friends for hours after I went to bed - knowing that I was safe from the Candyman because I wasn't a fag.

When I was younger i thought that that the cloud rhino (from that old "James and the giant peach" movie) was real. I never would disobey my evil teachers all throughout kindergarden-3rd grade.

When I was a child I used to believe that Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang was the most amazing movie ever - when I went back and watched the film as a teenager and realized that the entire film had been a dream sequence, my heart broke a little.

I used to think that if you watched all the different previews for a new movie being advertised on tv, you would end up having seen the whole movie.

We watched the film Arsenic and Old Lace when I was a kid, and I thought the title was "Our Snickin' Old Lace." I was annoyed that no one was able to tell me what "Snickin'" meant, so I thought maybe it was something like snickering. So I imagined the lace laughing at people.

I used to believe that movies were made in the exact order shown on screen.
I used to think it would take years and years to make films that way.
I thought that one scene was filmed then everyone packed up and moved to another location or whatever to film the next scene.
It wasn't until I saw a 'behind the scenes' programme on telly showing that they filmed all their scenes at the one location and then moved on.
Then it clicked.
Sadly this wasn't till in my teens.

When I was three years old my siblings had a movie night where they showed the movie "Poltergeist." It wasn't until my teens that I wasn't afraid of the electronic "snow" on an unused television channel.

i used to think it took 65 million years to make the movie "Jurrasic Park". i got this idea because of the movies tagline on the posters for it. i couldnt understand why someone would take such along time to make a movie.

I used to believe that when actors and actresses kissed each other their lips weren't really touching. I thought there was some kind of camera trick that made it look as if their lips touched.
