Nope, can't say I watch much Disney Channel - no kids in my home :)

My phobia isn't on here! Genuphobia!! Fear of knee caps. I'm not kidding, I'm really terrified of them. The scene in Kill List was very hard for me, hahaha.

What movie is #7 from? I can't figure out the movie that combines erections with horror. lol

Marie: You're afraid of knee-caps? Worse than that, there is actually a phobia for that? Wow, I learned something new today!

Vanessa: I added a key at the end of the post. #7 is from the TV show True Blood. Jason had a very hard time in that episode.
