Nostalgic Scares

Post by Chickpea Sarada on Thu Mar 26, 2015 8:00 am

This thread idea came to mind upon thinking about the 90s nostalgia open thread on DNL Prime.

Let's discuss things in shows/movies/games/etc. from your childhood that left you creeped out or terrified.  Uh-oh

Jump Start 4th Grade has to be the first "horror" game I played.  It had a dark eerie atmosphere, and traveling around the island was unsettling even before your first time meeting Repsac.  How do I not remember having nightmares from that ghost?! I heard that it was remade to be less frightening, which I'm both relieved and disappointed by.

That on top of the unsettling things it says to you while you're fighting it, and the way it attacks...As a kid, fighting this battle in a dimly-lit room at night was the worst decision I've ever made.

I think no discussion of nostalgiac scares can be complete without a mention of THE art from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark:



I hated to even touch it, so I turned the pages at the very corners.

I'm not one to get on my soapbox about Things From My Childhood That Are Different Now, but the fact that they changed the art for those books is just wrong.

Also Myst.  I was always expecting something uber creepy to leap out at me and it never did.

Mine is a series of books about creepy witches, I don't remember the name, but my older sister got them, read them, and then told me they were so scary that she absolutely forbid me from ever reading them because they would scare me too much. Naturally, I snuck into her room and read them all and spent the next several weeks hiding under my blankets in wide-awake terror all night trying to wipe them from my memory. I sure showed her!
