What movie traumatized your childhood/life the most?

Self-explanatory.
For me, at least so far, it's been Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the one scene from Independence Day when the alien destroyed the science lab area and killed the guy in it. That was horrifying to watch. Also the scene from Independence Day where New York City was set ablaze. I genuinely thought the dog had been burned alive and was so relieved when it came back.

Star Trek: Generations when Kirk died was hard on me as a kid, I remember breaking out in tears. If I watched it again now though, I'd probably only be amused by the joke of him dying under a bridge instead of on it.

Also, I've no idea how the hell I found this video (I never watched this show), but it haunted me for several days at a similar age as the first.

The scene in Kung Fu Panda 2 where
Po's mother left him
was quite a tearjerker for me, not so traumatizing though.

For something that truly traumatized me but isn't a movie, I saw this scene from those police investigation TV shows where a guy (I presume the father) had a fight with a woman and the guy killed (or maybe knocked out) the woman in front of her child. The child walked to the mother and tried to wake her up. I don't know if I want to explain in even more detail because I don't want this to be like one of those mysterious long-lost episodes/songs.

To be very honest... not much. Not that I am showing my bravado, but as far as I am concerned, there is none that really, really broke me.

Maybe the closest was that one Harry Potter movie - the one where Harry killed a python or a serpent, then used its teeth to stab into a tome, which in turn caused a guy to disintegrate. Dumb me thought I was really going to die like that if someone stabbed MY book. The cure was watching it the second time, and I was not so afraid anymore.

Grudge and The Ring series. Fucking nothing has terrified me closer in my childhood than those two movies. Can recall many sleepless nights as a kid from those movies, seeing or imagining every dark shape out of the corner of my eye as those long haired pale spirits. Like just the premise of helplessness and inevitability and being killed by pale and cold inhuman things like that was more terrifying than anything else as a kid. Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, Halloween, or Friday the 13th has nothing on those series. I honestly didn't even find American horror movies that scary as a kid, more likely to find them entertaining. But those movies really terrified me, nearly every fear of monsters was from those movie series. So yeah.

Although nowadays horror doesn't faze me as much and I could watch those movie series relatively fine. I guess I eventually just got "used' to them.

What movie traumatized your childhood/life the most?

Early Childhood: It is a toss up between "Mary Poppins" and some documentary about the 3rd Reich and the Nuremberg Trials.

Mary Poppins because it was so incongruous for my 5 year old mind and my understanding of reality -- fake people doing fake things, and enjoying their fakery at my expense. It gave me fits for years.

The Documentary because it was real people doing real evil in the throws of popularity, pageantry, and applause, no different than any other people who take upon themselves the "pleasure" to deceive (and therefore be deceived) for some Hegelian dialectic masquerading as a greater good. The result is always mayhem, war, death, and destruction, whence 10s millions of people's lives, liberties, and possessions are irrevocably snuffed out. All for puerile dream of fools.

Middle Childhood: Nothing really since then. Relatives who worked for studios like MGM would tell and show how movies were made. I began to watch movies for their critical merits (acting, directing, editing, script-writing, storytelling, plot, etc).

I don't think any movie or documentary truly traumatized me.

But I can mention the most disturbing type of documentary I have ever seen.

There is one historical figure that is so evil that I don't have a word to describe him.
After watching mini-documentaries on him and what he did, the mere mention of his name made my skin crawl.

That man is Pol Pot.

The most evil man to have ever walked the Earth. No exceptions. No one has ever been so singularly destructive to their own society. He wiped out 2,000,000 people in 4 years. I know that isn't as many as some of the more well-known dictators, but that's 1/4 of all of Cambodia. And the methods he used were beyond barbaric.

What the Khmer Rouge did is disturbing beyond words. Those documentaries are definitely NOT for the faint of heart.

I remember this one movie in the Philippines but memories of it are hazy.

So basically it’s about a killer Filipino vampire baby that a mother adopts, and at the end of the movie, the mother’s relatives burn the house with the baby in it when the baby straight up attacks the mother. The mother lived and the vampire baby died.

And no, I’m not making this up.

Yes,. Any good documentary of the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot is a must watch as soon as someone is old enough to understand. For anyone living at ease in their country and think that such an evil cannot happen where they are -- it can. The Khmer Rouge takeover and the Killing Fields should make everyone re-evaluate their philosophy of life, politics, and everything. A good start is John Polger's website that has the 1979 Documentary "Year Zero" for free.

It was American Werewolf in London. We were 10 and under. How scary can an old movie be?

Lots of nightmares from that one. I got afraid of dog licks. Sis hates harry guys because of it.

Dad fired the babysitter who let us watch it.
