If I've said it once, we've said it a hundred times — the '90s were a great time to grow up. From Pogs to platform sneakers, those of us who spent our youths during the era kind of had it all. However, as with all good things, there are a few caveats — and for our generation, that translates into the scary things from the '90s that are still low-key terrifying to us as adults. We don't freak out at the very mention of these things anymore, but it's safe to say that to this very day, they send a little shiver up our spine when we linger on the thought of them for too long.
To be clear, there were plenty of truly scary things in the '90s that we've either grown out of fearing or are still high-key terrified of now. As for which side of the spectrum you fall on, well, that's all a matter of personal perspective. I personally have never recovered from the fear of clowns instilled in me by watching Stephen King's It at a far too tender age. However, another '90s kid might look at Pennywise and just see a comically over-hyped villain. You say tomato, I say to-mah-to, ya dig?
While that's essentially the same case when it comes to the scary throwbacks that still low-key terrify us today, it's probably safe to say most '90s kids can come to a consensus that the following things kind of creep us out.
