Halloween is right around the corner and what would it be without
A Halloween Top Ten?
Those who have been around a while know I like my "Top Ten" lists...
They are fun and can take away the frustrations of the day by focusing
if even only for a few moments on something fun.
And it is always fun to get the opinions of our gamers and enjoy what
a diverse cross-section of people we have in the gaming community.
So let's get down to Brass Tacks...
What would You consider are the Top 10 scariest moments in movie
Now, they do not need to be from a Horror Movie, though I am sure a lot
Of Answers are likely to be from Horror Movies...
Here Are My Choices... In No particular order.
1. The Marathon Man:
The Interrogation Scene.
Never have two things you dislike more been combined better
to create a Scarier Moment in movie history...
An Interrogation and the Dentist!?
Slow and low Monotone, and the repetitive Question... "Is it Safe?"
You knew this guy would torture him All Night if he had too...
It has to be one of the scariest moments of all time.
The John Hurt Scene in the Cafeteria... Need I say anymore?
"Don't order the Special..." ~ Lonestar (Spaceballs)
The Scene where she systematically takes this guy apart
Piece by piece with just this 'elfish' glee and razor like precision...
That movie still gives me the creeps!
4. The Shining:
The Scene with Shelly Duvall in the Pantry,
The stark terror she displayed, and the Canned Goods Falling off
the shelves as Jack is Hammering away on the pantry door With the Axe!
And The image of him looking through the Door! "Heeeere's Johnny!!!"
One of the other scenes at the top of my list is the Scene where Kathy
Bates walks in with this sledge hammer... And Starts talking About "Hobbling"...
James Cann is lying there helpless in the bed with just shear
terror on his face...
You couldn't help but know something really bad...
was about to happen.
6. The Haunting: (The original)
Just... The Whole Movie... Never has fear, been done so well
with the limited effects of the time... The doors... looking like they
The claustrophobic feel of the mansion... No Idea how or if they would
The Movie was just first Rate!
The Prom scene: Need I say more?
That has still got to be one of the all time greatest scenes...
9. The Birds:
The Phone Booth scene:
That has to one of the all time most terrifying scenes...
Tippy Headron trapped in the Phone booth And the Birds Just repeatedly
Slamming into the Phone booth!!! Masterwork!
There is a Reason Alfred Hitchcock is a legend in the business...
Admit it...You had to know this one would be on the list... *
The Shower scene: Need I say more?
Still one of the all time greatest scenes... Just Fantastic!
And to think, drain scene in the tub was done... with Hershey's Syrup!!!
Totally frightening, and Genius use of what was on hand at the Time!
Well, there are my votes, for what it is worth...
But the beauty of this; is that mine, is not the only opinion that
And Happy Halloween!!!
I tried to keep track... But you all posted so many great Movies and Moments
That I have decided to just Let you all run wild!
