It could be pouktergeist... Dan cummins has a joke on his special where he talks about seeing that movie when he was seven... Bad idea... There was a scene where a toy clown tries to strangle a kid... that wasn't a prop, that was a toy someone bought, and used on set... He had that same toy clown in his room in the corner... He brought it down by the safety of daylight and beat the crap out of it. THe thought then occured that it might want revenge, so he threw it in the garbage... End of story, right? Wrong! His mom took out the garbage and saw the toy thinking ''Oh no, Dan threw away his favorite toy away by mistake! I'll just put it back when he's asleep and he'll see it in the morning!'' He was afraid of clowns since then!
(EDIT: Snow Sand. It's actually kind of the same thing, but it's tied together with a quite gigantic fear of mine which is drowning, aka choking. Snow Sand just ties it all perfectly together.) (PS. You don't know what Snow Sand is unless you've read or watched though read is preferred The Princess Bride by William Goldman.)
Don't be embarrassed, i kind of have a fear of falling too but mine is of falling from high places, like i had a dream once where i fell out of a tree and i woke up just before i hit the ground and i was so scared for a bit, it was very very unnerving O-O
Yeah, I'm also terrified of falling. Above all things. I'm okay with heights as long as I know I'm not going to fall. I know some people who are afraid of heights are afraid of sliding down a steep hill. I don't feel this fear. Just a fear of free falling.
I'm also have a huge fear of being overcome with my anxieties because I have anxiety and panic attacks. I work hard to avoid being anxious.
I don't know why this is, but sometimes when I sit on the toilet, I have an image of a blade or bloody arm being shoved through me. It makes me uncomfortable while I'm on the toilet, but it also makes me uncomfortable that this thought even occurs to me.
