So, this might be silly, but as a kid, did anyone else think their furnace was a monster? I did. Not very paranormal, but i couldn't have been the only one with this childhood fear.

i didn't have a furnace but i did have a Creepy Murder Basement.

actually, i think most basements are Creepy Murder Basements... :lol:

but i had the standard fear of having an arm or leg exposed from the covers because there was a demon who stood over my head at night and would grab me if i wasn't protected by my thin layer of cotton-poly-blend...lol

I just had an evil leprechaun (after watching the movie when I was 6) in my closet and under my bed who would grab me if i wasn't protected by MY thin layer of cotton-poly-blend. :D

oh shit yea the creatures from movies that i was way too young to watch at the time haunted my bedroom, too.
melting faces from Raiders of the Lost Ark
ear-tunneling worms from Star Trek the Wrath of Khan
skeletons, rotting flesh faces, stomach monsters from Poltergeist
the alien, from Alien

my folks raised me on sci-fi & horror so it's no wonder i ended up being totally fine photographing dead people later in life. (trufax)

I still have a "blankie." ;-) Don't judge.

Once I got a dog I no longer feared monsters, ghosts, and the such. I was pretty confident my boxer and pit could protect me.

I was really scared of my grandmothers wallclock.

Nothing special, german styled, but loud.


Still hate clocksounds, but thats kinda universal i guess lol

i can see why the little people and critters that are usually a part of koo-koo-clocks are freaky. they are in the same neighborhood as clowns are for me. and little ceramic figurines that people buy on home shopping networks.

i wait for them to come alive at night and poke me with tiny swords... (shivers)

After watching Tales From the Crypt as a child I was terrified there was a Mummy hiding in my closet for some reason.
No hooks in my brain, thank you very much!

Stephen King's 'It' ruined clowns for me at age 10. :|

So true about "It." More recently, AHS - Freakshow added to my thoughts on clowns.
