In a recent installment of "The First Time" with Rolling Stone writer/director Jordan Peele revealed that E.T. provided his early scares. 

"I thought it was a kid’s movie, I didn’t know what was going on, it was terrifying, he was all pale and gaunt, and he was dying – and I still to this day don’t know why Steven Spielberg would do me like this."

E.T. scared me too, so I'm with you there, Mr. Peele. 

What movies scared you early on? Did they have a lasting influence on your work and perspective?
