    Default Top Ten Scariest Movie Moments...

    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
    history?

    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.

    2. Alien:
    The John Hurt Scene in the Cafeteria... Need I say anymore?
    "Don't order the Special..." ~ Lonestar (Spaceballs)

    3. Audition:
    The Scene where she systematically takes this guy apart
    Piece by piece with just this 'elfish' glee and razor like precision...
    "EEESH!"
    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!!!"

    5. Misery:
    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.
    Just Awesome.

    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
    are breathing,
    The claustrophobic feel of the mansion... No Idea how or if they would
    get out...
    The Movie was just first Rate!

    7. Carrie:
    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...

    10. Psycho:
    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!
    Classic!

    Well, there are my votes, for what it is worth...

    But the beauty of this; is that mine, is not the only opinion that
    counts...

    Have fun...

    And Happy Halloween!!!

    Note:
    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!

    Have a Great Halloween!!!

    I agree about Alien being included, but disagree on the scene choice. Two others were scarier. The first, when the mechanic is poking around that room with the hanging chains and the dripping water, looking for the cat. At this point you haven't seen the full sized alien yet, just hints (I think, it's been a long time). And the other is when somebody's (The Captain?) down in the circulation system (or something like that), and he knows the alien's coming, they're telling him it's on the movement detector, but he doesn't know which direction, and he's trapped in this small crawl space. I'd vote the the scene where the mechanic is looking for the cat, though. Great sense of presence in that scene.

    I'd say the first Evil Dead, when they have the chick trapped in the basement and she's trying to get up through the trap door. When you're 15, and stoned out of your gourd, and you've never seen anything like that, it sticks with you. That movie really freaked us out, now it's just good for a few laughs.

    All great movies. My favorite scary scenes are the ones where you don't see a lot of gore. To me gore does not = scary. I like a lot of the older b & w movies

    1. The Thing (1951) Where James Arness plays the alien, the scariest scene is when they are looking for him and they think he might be in the greenhouse and go to open the door and he is right there and tries to get them, that scene scares me to this day and I've seen it about a 100 times.

    2. Any movie of Val Lewtons, Cat People, Leopard Man, Ghost Ship, all have great scary scenes.

    3. Mothman with Richard Gere, when he is talking on the phone to the "mothman", very scary moment.

    Hmm, that is all I can think of for now, more will come to me later I am sure.

    Oooh, The Mechanic scene... Forgot about that one...
    That was a good one...

    Prince of Darkness (Feat Alice Cooper as the anti christ)
    I don't usually fall for "shock horror" that makes you jump... but yeah at the end of the movie.. when you think it's all over.... the scene in the bed.. I pulled a chest muscle from flinching!

    gonna skip to the top three.

    3. Original Friday the Thirteenth. Everythings fine, girls in the boat in the middle of the lake. birds chirp. all is serene. OMFGTHERESJASONHESGOTHERAHHHHHNOSHESAGONERGLUGGLUG LUG!

    2. Evil Dead II. Ash kills his girlfriend after she becomes a crazy evil demon. Her body sits there for some time, thenhe removes it. whenhe drags it across the floor there is a creepy perspective as the scene is filmed as if through the eyes of the demon locked in the basement, and then the camera pans back to the locked up demon. Just always gave me the creeps.

    1. Texas Chainsaw Massacre the original. Hands down. Two kids, wandering towards the front of the house. blue tarp covered door. the scene goes so slow. then OMFGITSLEATHERFACEWITHAHAMMER! SMASH. Kid flops around while he chases the other girl, retrieves her, and takes her to the kitchen, where she is promptly put on a meathook, hanging there still alive while he concocts his delicious human chili. did i mention he starts cutting up her friend there in that scene? Man i love that movie.

    /Seconded. That was my first thought, but wasn't sure if a Startle moment was the same as a Scary moment.



    I've mentioned before seeing Jaws when it was first in theaters. On the ride home [down the winding country roads thru Missouri farmland] I was in the back of the station wagon, watching out the back window.... for sharks.

    I saw the John Carpenter version of The Thing first. That move (I was in single digits) freaked me for years. Probably because the idea that some virus could infect anyone and become... that random monstrosety... Let alone how painful it looked for the transformation.

    Ghost Ship? Was that the one with the lerposy pirates that stayed in the fog?

    The only other movie that gave me nightmares was War of the Worlds (the original one). The TV series decades later didn't help me any.

    Can't really argue with the top ten, but maybe a little lower on the list:

    Arachnophobia - several decent "jumpy" moments, and a nice creepy one - the spider in the popcorn

    The Ring - any parent who's been kept up one night too many can identify with the sheer horror of "She never sleeps"

    Movies don't scare me with the exception of one.

    The Amityville Horror (circa 1979).

    To this day I cannot and will not watch that movie by myself at night. It completely messes me up.
    To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women!
