Most memorable horror movie scenes
In the spirit of Halloween, let's talk about the most unforgettable horror movie scenes. My parents were pretty liberal about what they let me watch, so I grew up gleefully scaring myself half to death. I'll kick it off.
The opening scene of Jaws-This scene always disturbed me and still does every time I see it. The girl skinny dipping out in the dark, the shark POV shots, the music, the girl being bit, her hyperventalating after she's first bit, her being violently pulled around, and her bloodcurdling screams of "God, help me" before she's finally pulled under for good.
The crucifix scene from The Exorcist-Possibly the most blasphemous scene in movie history.
Little Danny meets the twins in the hallway in The Shining-Those two little girls were creepier than anything else in that movie, and that includes Shelly Duvall (rimshot). The quick glimpse of them butchered at the hands of their deranged father made it all the more terrifying.
Freddy meets Tina in A Nightmare On Elm Street-From the stretching of his arms, to him slicing off his fingers and yellow pus shooting out, to him slicing her open and dragging her across the ceiling, this scene robbed me of some sleep as a child.
I've got plenty more, but I'm interested to read what others have on this subject.
