  1. I really hope you do a podcast, or at least an article on The Holy Mountain!

  3. Patrick, remind me to tell you the story of how I had an allergic reaction to shellfish and my eyeball swelled out of my skull.

  4. This one may sound silly, but I loved Amadeus when I was a kid (I'm 34 now), and the first scene where Salieri tries to kill himself was completely traumatic to me. To this day, the musical swell as he's holding out his bloody hands creates an image that I find really upsetting and disturbing.

  5. Robyn - I'm totally with you in Nedry's death in Jurassic Park. Even when I watch it now for the 100th time, that scene makes me jump every single time.

    Oh and the painting scene in the begining of the witches - ruined me.

    2. Same with Nedry AND the girl in the painting!

  6. Omg Unico. Yes. All. Of. That. Movie and especially the scene with Kuruku changing the adults into the wooden puppets. *shudder* For some reason my friends had the first movie and my parents had the second movie and it was something I watched over and over again. There are only a handful of people throughout the years that have seen it!

    Also, agree, The Wheelers were hands down the scariest part of Return to Oz for me too.

  7. Superman 3 isn’t quite as irredeemable as Patrick makes out. It’s pretty rough on the whole..but has enough moments of charm & wit to make it, at the very least, a guilty pleasure.
    I couldn’t help but empathise with Patrick when he mentioned his issue with a podcast hosts voice. Not that I have a particular issue with ‘You must remember this’...but I have certainly been put off many shows due to the hosts voice. That’s on me..not them. Although the ‘like’ epidemic is making 90% of all podcasts difficult to listen to lately. Grumble grumble etc

    Ps. Shout out to possibly the quietest ever ‘it’s been a while’ during this episode.

  8. My two earliest memories of "kindertrauma*" have to be and baring in mind I'd already seen at around 6/7 years old The Shining and the European theatrical cut of Salem's Lot (weirdly I knew back then that a) it wasn't the TV version b) I would go on to love Tobe Hooper) BUT the tunnel scene in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory had me running behind the family sofa and when I saw Critters 2 that my feet were going nowhere near the end of the bed in case of, well, Critters! ps. Excellent podcast as always.

    * Someone needs to sent up a rock band of swearing eighth graders with that name. :)

  9. For me it would be Child's Play and Batman Returns.

  10. You moved past Large Marge pretty quick considering it's the SCARIEST THING EVER IN A MOVIE.

    1. My greatest shame is that I said Big Marge. That doesn't even rhyme!

    2. Nobody is impervious to human error so no harm done. Large Marge is pretty freaky.

  11. #1 kindertrauma for me was the 1978 Puff the Magic Dragon cartoon. Everything in it terrified me.

  13. Always a good time when Robyn's on.

    The earliest kindertrauma I remember is this Finnish kids' show about a circus clown: https://youtu.be/M5upd5CpfoI

    The animated opening disturbed me for some reason. Something about the music and the way his face comes together from separate parts. I watched the show regularly, but always hid behind the sofa or went to another room during the opening.

  14. The Braveheart throat slitting really got to me too. Incredibly effective and disturbing moment.

  15. If I was making this list again I would remember to include the girl with no mouth in Joe Dante's segment in Twilight Zone: The Movie.

  16. For me, the scene in Gremlins where Phoebe Cates describes her father’s death. It was so vivid in my imagination that years later I was sure it was shown on screen. That scene still unsettles me to this day.

    1. Oddly enough, the part in Gremlins that always creeped me out was when the Gremlins went after the old lady, which was odd because we're supposed to think that she deserves it.

  17. Totally agree on Karina Longworth's voice, cadence and delivery. The first couple times I tried to listen, I just couldn't take it and had to turn it off. Then I tried again and was really interested in the material, so I forced myself to get past that. There's a lot of really well-researched and interesting stuff that I think is worth it if you can deal with how she sounds.

    1. I've been trying to listen all week and that's been my experience. The content is great, it's just not always presented in a way that's my jam. Good show, though.

  18. Time Bandits was mentioned during the show and I had the misfortune of catching the last 20 minutes or so of that when I was really young. I didn't pick up on the humor, so seeing the kids parents explode and nobody in the movie reacting at all really messed me up.
