    1. I saw it at a perfect time so most films have paled in comparison for me. Dawn of the Dead (1978) was an important one. Last Year at Marienbad (1961). Dreams (1990).

      As far as feature films, I had spectacular first-time personal experiences seeing these in particular.

      Similarly, I got some great nightmares from Tourist Trap (1979) and The Shining (1980)!

    2. And I should mention a few movies I saw between the ages of 2 and 5 that were profound and scary in their own ways: The Muppet Movie (1979)–I saw this in the theater and was overwhelmed and terrified–probably my first big screen experience and the Moe-pahs as I called them were a helluva lot bigger than they were at home; Jaws (1975)–we have pictures of me watching this when I was 3 and I think it just went straight into the subconscious where the shark lives anyway; King Kong (1933)–Pure magic every time I was a kid and it came on TV; and same for Clash of the Titans (1981).

      Somewhere in there is a variety of Jerry Lewis movies and Three Stooges shorts.
