Sssssss (1973)

Ophidiophobia: Fear of snakes
This monster from Sssssss... would be a formidable opponent for Indiana Jones. It's a good thing Indy knows the defense strategy of "close your eyes and hope spirits kill 'em."
People who added this item 734 Average listal rating (489 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6.2
Wolf (1994)

Pogonophobia: Fear of facial hair
1994's Wolf sees Jack Nicholson as a reluctant werewolf. But, like all werewolves, Nicholson's character succumbs to his fate despite there being a very easy solution (blow up part of the moon).

Necrophobia: Fear of dead things
Dawn of the Dead had some truly terror-inducing zombies. However, everyone knows a necrophobic's greatest fear is their own hair, because it's dead.
People who added this item 2847 Average listal rating (1953 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.7
Zombieland (2009)

Coulrophobia: Fear of clowns
Zombieland made it clear that we, as a species, fear clowns. After all, it's pretty scary that they appear every time there's a brutal injury at the circus.
People who added this item 1186 Average listal rating (792 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.1
Hellraiser (1987)

Belonephobia: Fear of pins and needles
Creating Pinhead for the Hellraiser series required actor Doug Bradley to be in the makeup chair for six hours. However, if our knowledge of acupuncture is correct, it was an extremely relaxing six hours.
People who added this item 1854 Average listal rating (1192 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.5
The Fly (1986)

Entomophobia: Fear of insects
Jeff Goldblum's character in The Fly probably qualifies for emetophobia, which is fear of vomit.
People who added this item 1482 Average listal rating (994 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8

Maimouphobia: Fear of monkeys
1968's Planet of the Apes used sophisticated makeup to bring the terrorizing civilization to life. We wonder if people who are afraid of monkeys are really just afraid of having poop thrown at them.
People who added this item 3340 Average listal rating (2173 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8.1

Wiccaphobia: Fear of witches
Who wouldn't be afraid of this masterpiece Wicked Witch from the Oz episode of Syfy's Face Off. It looks like Auntie Em's house fell on this witch's face.
People who added this item 313 Average listal rating (223 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.7

Satanophobia: Fear of the devil
Tim Curry, as the Prince of Darkness, steals the show in 1985's Legend. Fearing this guy shouldn't really be labeled as a "phobia," but rather "common sense."
People who added this item 67 Average listal rating (29 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.3

Ailurophobia: Fear of cats
The 1927 silent slasher called The Cat and the Canary introduced this horrific baddy.
People who added this item 552 Average listal rating (377 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6

Paraskavedekatriaphobia: Fear of friday the 13th
Jason Vorhees rose to prominence when he picked up the knife in Friday the 13th, Part II. People with Paraskavedekatriaphobia must have traumatic summer camp memories.

Fear of facial hair... damn. Can you imagine being a man, having that phobia and the experience of shaving? He'd probably cut himself to bits!! 8O
