Yes, it means "it makes me feel extremely frightened/it frightens me very badly.


They also use "it scares the pants off me/scares the hell out of me/scares the sh*t out of me".



notice: scares the sh*t outta me/hell outta me... may (or may not) be deemed as slightly offensive and sometimes slightly dIsrespecful by some people. Using the (first option) "...life outta me" you can´t go wrong!

And Jorge, I am on the same page with you on this one, in addition to it, for emphasis, I would add some more drama to it:

Eu quase morri de medo (quase me borrei de medo/quase borrei as calças)!

That takes a scare to new heights! ha ha! :shock:
