Showgirls.

From the first scene to the last one but at least I got to see Gina Gershon's titties.

The Cell was pretty F*cked up. I think that they need to make more films that are that disturbing. Also CAP should rate them as well.

I would probably have to say the scene in "The Exorcist" when Linda Blair walks like a spider down the stairs. That scared the sh|t out of me.
 
2003-10-22 01:01:37 PM  
the entire movie Dawn of the Dead.

maybe because it came out when i was 18 and i saw it at a midnight showing and was half in the bag at the time, but boy, was that a 2-hour stint in what hell must be like.

Man Bites Dog -- scary as hell belgian movie -- out does blair witch, the ring and me in bikini briefs combined.

Before Freddie Krueger mocked his own popularity in the Friday sequels with cutting one-liners

Whoa Whoa Whoa!!! Back that shiat up!!! Freddie wasn't in Friday the 13th, ya noob. That was Jason. Freddie was on Elm St. Geez!! It doesn't take much to do some fact-checking every once in awhile.

Kathy Bates in "About Schmidt".

The chains / hooks thing coming down and grabbing him in Hellbound freaked me out, but that was 14 years ago.

Nowadays, lol, good luck. I'm so jaded vivesecting a monkey in a music video probably would make me yawn and not buy the CD.

I'm a sucker - and I know it's on their list - but the part in The Ring just before she crawled out of the TV scared the crap out of me. I mean, just knowing that she could see the guy and was coming at him was freaking me out. Once she crawled out of the set, it was still scary but it lost its edge.

Ok so its # 1 - my above comment is pointless

When I was little my sister let me watch Trilogy of Terror. Parts 1 and 2 sucked, but 3 gave me nightmares for weeks. [image from horror-wood.com too old to be available]

The scariest part...THE ACTING OF JENNIFER ANISTON

BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

In no particular order:


-The scene with Regan "spidering" down the stairs.


-The baby crying during the tent-shaking scene in Blair Witch.


-Michael Meyers sitting up in the background behing JLC in Halloween.


-The elevator opening and blood pouring out in The Shining.


-The hands bursting through the wall while she looks at the calendar in Day of the Dead.

BTW, what "teenagers" is the author talking about in Night of the Living Dead?
 
2003-10-22 01:57:15 PM  

I forgot...

The clown scene in Poltergeist.

The scene when the possessed chick starts reading cards in Evil Dead.

When the chief is crawling around in the air shafts on the ship in Alien, and the crew is watching him on a computer monitor. He appears as a blip, and suddenly, another blip, the alien, appears on the screen. Most of that movie is pretty darn scary.

My other choices would be scenes from The Shining (Kubrick version) or The Exorcist. I'm at work, and can't go into detail...
 
2003-10-22 02:16:19 PM  
Eraserhead. The entire movie. I left the theater feeling freaked out and nauseous.

Besides the Trilogy of Terror and the clown from Poltergeist already mentioned (damn clowns and dolls)...

Halloween's Michael Myers whenever he's just kind of hanging out way in the background;

when the death-type character walks down the hallway in Exorcist III and no one notices. Not a great movie, but a creepy scene;

and (obviously not a scary movie, but still) the baby crawling on the ceiling in Trainspotting.
 
2003-10-22 02:31:12 PM  
Actually now that I think about it, Bowling for Columbine was probably the scariest movie ever made. Once you recognize it for what it is--a demonstration on how easily the public can be fooled by blatant, flat out lies--it truly does strike fear into me.
 
2003-10-22 02:33:17 PM  
Most frightened I've ever been in a theater:
Burnt Offerings. OK, I was 16 and it was midnight and the theater was condemned.

Only time I've yelled in a theater:
Carrie. The original. At the very, very end.
 
2003-10-22 03:12:38 PM  
1. The tree reaching in the window in Poltergeist.

2. The ending of Silence of the Lambs (in the basement).

3. The original "The Blob" scared the crap out of me when I was a kid.
 
2003-10-22 03:53:23 PM  
The end of Angel Heart with the baby with demon eyes pointing at Mickey Rourke, weirded me right out.

Oooh, I forgot about Blair Witch. How about when they hear their missing friend way off in the distance being disemboweled? Or at the end when the perspective switches to their handheld vid camera and you see the guy standing in the corner, facing the wall? Spine-tingling stuff.
 
2003-10-22 04:36:37 PM  
Oh, its gotta be those damn twin girls standing in the hallway in the Shining. That creeps me out every time.

Pretty much ALL of the Exorcist (note: do not watch this movie when you are 13 years old, home alone, in the dark basement. I never wanted to go to church so bad in my life!)
 
2003-10-22 04:39:14 PM  
Seven : the hooker phallus and when the almost dead guy sucked in breath and started flailing around. We were seriously freaked out by that movie.

I think Hellbound warped me as well.
 
2003-10-22 04:42:30 PM  
How about the first few times you heard that whispered sound effect in the first Friday the 13th.

You know the one...

CCH... Cch...cch.... AAH... Aah... aah...
 
2003-10-22 04:48:22 PM  
As a side note on The Shining... that movie failed to really scare me just for the simple fact that I was actually rooting for Jack to succeed in killing his hidious wife and that annoying little kid. Ok, I liked Scatman Crothers, and his death was too bad. But who WOULDN'T want to kill those two?

I don't know if I've ever rooted for the 'bad guy' like I did in that movie.

Am I alone here?

The scene in Signs when Joaquin Phoenix is watching the news broadcast of the birthday party, and you finally get to see the alien. He's only watching TV, but it was so well done, and the tension was built so well, that it was scary as could be.
 
2003-10-22 05:38:48 PM  
On this very night 10 years ago...On this same stretch of road...In a dense fog just like this...I saw the worst accident I ever seen..It was this sound like a garbage truck..dropped off the Empire State Building...and when they finally pulled the drivers body..from the twisted BURNING WRECK..It LOOKED LIKE THIS!!!!

Any time that Stallone attempts to act instead of running, shooting, or punching someone.

Night of the Living Dead

It's night, and a group of teenagers are trapped in a house by zombies. Stupid guy leaves the house to go for help, and his worried friends scan the backyard with a flashlight. The wobbly circle of light lands on the guy resting against a tree, disemboweled with zombies feasting on his guts. I think I was 11 years old, and I still have nightmares about it.


I don't remember this scene. I must have seen a different version.

Friday the 13th

Before Freddie Krueger mocked his own popularity in the Friday sequels with cutting one-liners, he made my hair stand up in the original's alleyway scene, where his arms extend out to both walls and his bladed fingers scratch out a hair-raising requiem for his next victim.


That would be Nightmare on Elmstreet jackass.

The photographer figures it's now safe to watch the video, but now the scenes change before his eyes. The girl is tossed into the well. Good enough, but then she's seen climbing out of the well, walking toward the camera, getting closer and closer to the screen.

He didn't watch the film. He didn't even have a copy at that point. Didn't the tele just turn on by itself? Maybe I am remembering it wrong--by remembering what actually happened.

Methinks this person is making up the scenes and plots and films as he goes along.

Robert Berry has a better list at retrocrush.com.

Not a movie, but when I was a kid the sleestaks from the Land Of The Lost scared the hell out of me.
 
2003-10-22 06:09:58 PM  
The end of The Shining. That vision of a frozen Jack Nicholson with the dissonant music, and then seeing him in the old picture scared the piss out of me.
But overall, I didn't find the movie that scary. It's a cautionary tale. If you separate a writer from bourbon, he snaps and tries to kill his family with an axe.
I'm done writing for the day, so I'm going to get some bourbon.

Agreed. And on a similar note, the TV mini-series, IMHO, succeeded on more levels than the movie did. The movie seems rushed (as most novel-to-film adaptations are), but it had stronger performances. The TV series had a better story, and more scares, but it starred that guy from "Wings."

Still, the TV series had the very cringe-worthy blow to the abdomen with a croquet mallet. Sometimes the unseen injuries are the most horrific.

When the ball keeps bouncing down the stairs in "The Changling" or when he's listening to the tape with the sound up and you can hear the ghost (whcih M. Knight Shamma-Lamma-Ding-Dong stole for Sixth Sense)
