Scariest Movie Moments

Recommended Posts

Yes, folks, it's that time of year again, when the ghouls feast on fools and black cats scurry from vampire bats!

I was recently watching a program that stated the ten "SCARIEST" moments in film of all time.

Scary is a loosely defined word, IMO. Scary can be simply a tone of voice or a "look."

My particular favourite was when Sigur, with no weapon, only a coin, could chill even the hardest.

Feel free to add your favourite scene to this Halloween Top Ten.


Here's one of mine . . .

10. Call It...(no Country for Old Men)

Other moments, in no particular order:

The Fly: Jeff Goldblum falls apart

Seven: Sloth

Full Metal Jacket: "I am... in a world.. of s**t."

The Evil Dead: Tree rape

The Wicker Man: The ending

The Shining: All of it

Suspiria: Murder in the hotel (Prettiest death ever)

Prince of Darkness: Alice Cooper kills a dude with half a bike (More awesome than scary, really)

The Sixth Sense: Creepy vomiting little girl ghost

A Nightmare On Elm Street: Tina is dragged up the walls and cut open

Wait Until Dark: THAT scene. Won't spoil it, but if you've seen it you know what I'm talking about. Leave Audrey Hepburn alone!

Psycho: Meeting mother

The Exorcist: All of it

A Clockwork Orange: Singing In the Rain

David Cronenberg has a tendency of using less-than-famous actors (mostly Canadian), but, I digress, I tend to enjoy films for more than who starred in it. The totality of David Cronenberg's film: the score, the sets/mise-en-scene and visually-stunning props and FX (seriously, that weird transporter looks like something out of Alien/H.R. Giger), the cinematography and editing, etc. I'm not panning the original movie, but the new version made a classic seem like new. This is a rare and difficult feat :beatnik:
