In order of creepiness…

Bringing out the big ones here on the creepiness scale. I originally saw the highly disturbing educational short “The Child Molester” as a bonus feature when I purchased the DVD of “Hell’s Highway”, a documentary on highway safety films (ie; Red Pavement, etc… we will leave those for another post). This particular educational film was geared towards a very young audience, much too young for the subject matter. This film does contain GRAPHIC CONTENT at the very end (aprx 18m into it).
However, the reason I chose this short was the simple fact that even without the ending it would still be completely traumatizing to an 8 year old. It has every aspect of creepy. You’ve got your creepy melody and matching title screen right from the start, your typical mondo-era narrator pushing you along throughout the plot and all while playing through a 1960s film reel that looks like it’s been melting in a dungeon for 30 years. I understand wanting to warn children about talking to strangers, but this took it a bit far.

The best thing since sliced bread… is sliced heads! This is edible food, shaped to look like realistic human body parts. They are the product of 28-year old Kittiwat Unarrom and his ‘Body Bakery’ in Thailand. I would buy some today if it was nearby!
Kindertrauma.com is a great website that allows readers to submit their childhood fears for all to see. Typically these comes from movies, books and television shows from the 1970s-90s. Submitters can even call upon the community to help them identify a particular fear by describing it. For instance, somebody may describe a scene in a movie, and often times the kindertrauma community will know what it is! It is a great source of entertainment and is updated daily.
