The feeling associated with a thought that makes you protective of a specific body part, usually the neck. The word is derived from the scene in Disney's "Pinocchio" when Jiminy Cricket drops a pebble down his pants and shivers, proclaiming: "Ooooooh, chilly."
When I saw the guy get his Achilles tendon slashed in "Pet Semetary," it made me very chilly.
When my dad butchered the goat right in front of me, the sight of the animal's neck being slit open made me so chilly, that I dipped my chin to meet my chest. By not exposing my neck, I now feel safe from having the same thing happen to me.
