What scenes in Films still freak you out

Those scenes which still make you close your eyes or look away.

For me it's the scene in The Abyss where Virgil played by Ed Harris has to get Lindsey played by Mary Elizabet Mastrantonio from the leaking submersible to the main submersible and there is only one oxygen mask. She knows she will drown and has to trust that he will be able to revive her again when he gets to the main sub. The bit where she is drowning still makes for uncomfortable viewing.

The scene in Elephant man when the porter (or whatever he was) charges people to have a look at John Merrick in his room. When they drunkedly start to carry him about and mess about with him it disturbs me, and has done since i was a child.

Also virtually every scene with Piper laurie in Carrie!!!!

The late, great Robert Shaw being slowly devoured by the shark in 'Jaws', James Caan at the tollbooth in 'The Godfather', and Veronica Cartwright weeping and paralysed with fear in 'Alien' are three that immediately spring to mind for me. It dosen't matter how many times I see them, they still unnerve me.

Any one of a number of scenes in The Omen. The graveyard jackal attack - the suicide of the nanny (its for you Damian) - 'if you don't want to do it, Robert, then I will' - Jennings the photographer's last words - the first sight of the Priest with the paralysed arm in the monastry.

Great film, and all done with such care and subtlety.

We have a winner! That shot of the mother sat up on the bed staring at the camera!

Also the scene in "The Shining" where Jack is kissing the women in the hotel room then sees her refection in the mirror.

"Suspiria" the scene where the girls all have to sleep in the hallway and one of them finds out the "Mother" is sleeping on the other side of the curtain. Cue that eerie snoring...

The beginning of "Jaws". Not a very original choice maybe but that's because it's so unnerving.

Eels in The Tin Drum
A broken wineglass in Cries and Whispers

Anyone who has seen either film will know exactly which scenes I mean!

The Thing
The 'dog' transformation.

From the moment the Doctor starts using the defibrillator on Norris and end just after the memorable line, "You gotta be ******* kidding!"

Ace film

If you want to be TRULY freaked out by that scene, step through it in freeze frame

The scene in Casino, when there buried alive after taking a beating with the Basball bats, now I've only seen this Film once, when it first came out on Sky, (which is 10yrs now I guess) I bet if I saw it again now it'll look pretty lame


And going back to when I was a kid....... The Omen, the Photographer showing Thorn the Pic from His reflection shot (the music playing the part)

EDIT

Hey, my 2000th Post

Actually it's more like 3600+
