2. Red Dragon
4. Braindead/Dead Alive
5. Men Behind the Sun
6. The Fly
11. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
12. The Exorcist

15. Black Sunday

18. Invasion of the Body Snatchers
23. The Phantom of the Opera
25. Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat
Did you find it odd that a children's movie about woodland creatures made the list? Disney's Bambi has been traumatizing children since 1942.
Between the unseen hunters, a mother's haunting last warning, "Faster! Faster, Bambi! Don't look back! Keep running! Keep running!" followed by the sound of gunshots and Bambi's lost and quavering, "Mother? Mother?" the animated feature provided every ingredient needed for sleepless nights.
I'm wondering why the Wizard of Oz wasn't on the list. The talking apple trees, flying monkeys, and hour glass marking the remaining seconds of weeping Dorothy's life still creep me out!
