I'm scared of thunder storms! Really scared. I also sense them coming really early, like a dog
I am pretty edgy around escalators... (have had this fear since I was tiny, I think i was told a story about a kids hand getting stuck and shredded. Ironically, I had my skirt stolen by an escalator in my teens. I'm the only person I know to have had an altercation with one, and also, the only one to ever be mistrustful.)
I prefer sleeping with my back touching a wall, or on a bed that has no crawl space under it...
And like some others, my son creeping into my room in the early am. Sometimes he is just plain creepy!
Oh, and I can't really explain it, but sometimes hubby 'takes the road less travelled' to explore, and I always get real sweaty, and heart racing, driving somewhere that we a)might not be allowed and b)have no idea where is goes.
Went to an old hospital with DP and the elevators were really bouncy, like they were on a bloody bungey cord! A doctor got in the elevator with us and he was asking if I was ok because I was near on having a panic attack. Whenever possible, I take the stairs.

I'm scared of heights, big huge bridges, elevators with glass windows you can see out of, I feel like the scene in willy sinkers chocolate factory!!! I have had recurring nightmares my whole life!! Needles is another one, i get clamy and nearly vomit before hand, the smell of the alcohol wipe makes me near pass out! And David Bowie in the labrinth!!! I HATE that movie!!!! I use to cry about it and I saw the cover of it at the DVD store and I felt terribly ill!!!

Just remembered something else - I HATE having my pulse taken on my wrist! The thought of it makes me feel sick to the stomach and my hand/arm feels all funny. It feels like pressing on that vein will stop blood flow to my hand and my arm. Same with my feet - if something is resting on the top flat hit of my foot (the veiny area) I feel like the blood flow will stop. I know it's mind over matter, but still...
Scary movies about spooks (ghosts, poltergeists, etc). Can't watch them. Even the shorts for movies like Paranormal Activity - blergh!
Further to the fear of te serial killer being outside at night, I have to have all of my doors locked if (a) I'm by myself at any time of the day, and (b) at night time, even with company. Not key locked, just turning the lock on the security screen is fine.
I'm quite a paranoid and anxious person!! Can't even go for a walk by myself in broad daylight!!
Another one.. and this I'm over now, lol: Gene Simmons! For real, he terrified me as a child!
Also, big puppet things.. people dressed as puppets.. when I was little we went to the Pancake Parlour and this big Mad Hatter thing came out.. needless to say, i screamed the place down and hid under the table. It must have stuck with me because they still give me the creeps..
