Happy Halloween! To celebrate, why not grab a handful of trick or treat candy and sit back and watch my picks for the scariest movie scenes EVER.
First on the list: The Shining. Quite possibly the first horror movie I ever saw, and one that still gives me the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it. “All work and no play make Jack go something….something…..” ai, yi, yi. Here’s a viddy:
Second: Poltergeist. Because little kids in scary movies really seriously freak me out – and so does that little old lady…”Carol Anne, Carol Anne, come back to the light…”
Third: Jaws. This movie, more than any other event in my life, made me fear deep water, boats, and large sharks. Well, honestly, I had ALREADY feared big white sharks, but this just pretty much sealed the deal.
Fourth: A Clockwork Orange. I actually just saw this movie in the last two weeks and now I know why it’s one of those “iconic” films that you’re supposed to see. Mostly it scared the crap out of me, especially this scene.
Fifth: The Exorcist. So I don’t really want to talk about this one because it scares the shite out of me. Just watch the video. I’ll be the one hiding under the blankets over here in a corner, sucking my thumb.
Sixth: Psycho. You knew this one would be on there, right? I dare you to take a shower and not think of this scene.
Seventh: Seven. Pretty much any scene in this movie absolutely scares the crap out of me.
Eighth: Silence of the Lambs is hands down the scariest movie I’ve ever seen, mostly because Anthony Hopkins is so FRAEKING insane.
Ninth: Misery, oh yes, it’s the fracking HOBBLING scene. Owie.
And Tenth: Carrie. I was both scared and kind of rooting for Carrie this entire movie. She just has that way about her, doesn’t she? Here’s the prom scene:
