Movies That Traumatized Us As Kids (And Why)

"My dad casually posed the question, 'What would you do if ET was in your closet?' I had to do my own therapy reminding myself that he was friendly."

"ET was scary with those big eyes. It tripped me out when they turned the house into a hazmat location. I thought they would do that to my house."

"E.T. was supposed to be friendly, but I sure didn't think so... and honestly I haven't watched it since."

"Specifically the hazmat scene. I thought the movie was going to all be happy and Reese’s Pieces."
