18 Creepy Things From The 90s Responsible For Making You A Paranoid Mess

- Page 1

One noticeable thing about 90s kids is they're either extremely into scary stuff, or they would rather never leave the house than deal with it again. There is no in between.

When you look back on the "entertainment" we had to keep ourselves busy, there's really no questioning where this came from.

Is there a serial killer behind the shower curtain? What if I open this door and cockroaches come pouring out? What if my dog is actually an alien spying on me?

All valid questions. All somehow influenced by the 90s.

Scroll this list and be prepared for some wild flashbacks about why 90s kids are paranoid messes.

1. Literally everything about Unsolved Mysteries

Robert Stack just had a way of making everything sound unsettling. The show could have been about kittens napping in a blanket while a golden retriever stood guard and he still would have made me sketpical about the kittens.

2. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books.

And it wasn't even the stories. It was the art that made the stories 50 times worse.

3. Rescue 911


These were almost worse than the paranormal stuff because it was REAL LIFE THINGS!

4. Judge Doom's death scene in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?


I got 30 seconds into this clip and had to stop. Just the sheer memory of it gave me goosebumps. HE'S A TOON!!

5. Unsuspecting Blair Witch Project ads


Just the sheer anticipation that you might see one of these ads was enough to send people into a panic. And by people, I mean me.

6. Zeke the Plumber on Salute Your Shorts


"Alright so hear me out...a ghost plumber...who looks like he's being held together by masking tape and white glue." That's how I imagine the meeting for this episode went.

7. Fruit Gushers commercials

This wasn't scary so much as it was wildly unsettling.

8.  Don't Look Under The Bed

I don't really know what happened to the writers at Disney Channel when they thought of this, but clearly they had just suffered some type of insane trauma. Because WOW.

9. Edgar The Bug from Men In Black

I think this was supposed to be funny? But that was a huge miss. More so shocking I guess. Regardless, no thank you.

But that's not even close to the most traumatizing things we experienced...
