For me, it's evil little girls.

Today I shall commence the beginning of the first part of my second draft of my vampire screenplay.  Well, that's a lie; I've finished the first part, which is going over the first draft with a fine toothed comb, as well as collating everyone's notes.  So I guess I have commenced the beginning, and shall now begin the commencement of the rest of the first part of the second draft - the revision manifesto, and a new outline.  ("Revision manifesto" sounds all fancy, but it's basically just a brief document to help me keep in mind the larger goals I have when writing, the things it came be easy to lose when you're in the middle of some individual scene and are worrying about the difference between two synonyms.)

Anyway, one thing I want to work on, as per my manifesto, is really nailing all the little scary moments early on.  I am not doing blood and gore, but more psychological horror.  This is where you guys come in.

Question: What scares you?  I don't mean things that are real and could actually harm you - like sharks, or heights - and I don't mean existential things - like what happens after death.  I mean, what little creepy things happen, in real life or in the movies, that freaks you out?  That even if you rationally and objectively think about it and know it isn't real or isn't scary, still gets to you?

You don't have to pick just one!
