Someone else already mentioned The Watcher in the Woods. I watched when I was young too (it was shown during school) and made an impression at the time, of course not so much on repeat viewing years later.
Yeah, that's what I was afraid of, and why I'd rather not rewatch it. I know it could never possibly be as frightening as I remember it. The worst part was after watching it and going to bed, I remember my mother playing it again (I can only assume a friend had come over to visit and they decided to watch it) and just having to hear it again
from my bedroom only intensified the ordeal. I just wonder how many children were traumatized because their parents brought home a "Disney" movie.
Disney's Alice in Wonderland.
It is a very disturbing story, even more when you are a little kid. The idea of being trapped alone in a world ruled by insanity, surrounded by crazy people acting without any kind of logic, seeing it as a journey to your own madness... It is really scary, much more than any Freddy Krueger as a bogeyman.
Funny, that. I recall the live action (I believe it was made for televsion) Alice in Wonderland from the mid 80sish had a scene with the Jabberwocky creeping me right the **** out.
