I've watched this recently and considered doing that, but forgot after I got to the end of the film.

Do tell!

The scene in Texas Chainsaw where Leather face jumps out and choppes the guy in the wheelchair up - as a kid I was convinced what I saw was blood,guts,limbs flying the lot...in reality you dont see anything..theres hardly any blood in the entire film - now thats film making, the power of suggestion got this movie a great reputation

Pretty much every scene in the Exorcist freaks me out (apart for the 'everythings happy' ones).

I can happily watch most horror films without batting an eyelid but that evil little brat still scares the hell out of me.

Nope, its still one of the most horrifically violent scenes ive ever seen in a mainstream film.

Oh and the humiliation/attack scenes in "The Last House on the Left". I know it's not supposed to be as bad as "I Spit on your Grave", but I haven't seen that, and have no desire to from what I've heard. Rape scenes are my taboo. I find them very hard to stomach watching on my own, and I just couldn't watch them with anyone else.

The scenes towards the end of DUEL AT DIABLO where Dennis Weaver is being tortured by being slowly roasted on a wheel by the Apaches. The thing is you don't see it happening, you just hear a high-pitch scream every time the wheel goes round. This still gets to me...

Donald Sutherland at the end of Philip Kauffman's 'Invasion of Bodysnatchers' (those who have seen it will know what I mean).

You mean when he meets Veronica Cartwright again? I thought that was rather tame myself, unless I missed something.

Saving Private Ryan,
the scene with this guy that's affraid to go up the stairs, where is buddy is getting killed. This scene always touched me and I wanted to say: Do something!
That must be effective.

I re-watched The Wild Bunch yesterday, and the climax is another one, you want the good guys to win. Especially Ernest Borgnine, a really great guy.
''Give em Hell,Pike.
Pike!Pike!
(Great dramatic music afterwards)

God, I'd forgotten all about that until now. I remember being allowed to stay up to watch it one night as a kid and being very disturbed by that scene. At the time my main interest in the film was the fact that 'Jim Rockford' and 'Sam McCloud' were in it - ages me dosen't it!

From what i've read about that film, if it wasn't for the rape scene no-one would have heard of it. The rape scene seems to be used as a tool to plug the film.

It wasn't used as a plug for the film, its just that most reviews and articles seemed to dwell on it. I actually found the fire extinguisher scene to be more disturbing as it was without a doubt one of the most realistic muder scenes id ever seen.

I'm sure we are talking about the same scene, Raigmore.

For some reason it really gets under my skin when he rolls his eyes and does the weird pointing an all.....its not 'a man being clubbed to death with a fire extinguisher' or 'somebody being deposited on a massive meat hook', but it worked for me.

BTW I will now (possibly) instigate mass outrage in these hallowed ancient halls of film culture by declaring a slight preference of the Kaufman remake over the original Siegel version.

The scene in Aliens when the Marines go into the reactor building basement. You just knew what was going to happen, just not when - occasionally, after a heavy night that one still gives me nightmares.

The other one that freaked me out was the scene from the Thing where the Husky is put in the kennels with the other dogs. Nowadays the only thing I have seen in a cinema that genuinly sent me running for the exit is the phrase "Dr Uwe Boll presents..."

Surprised that no one has mentioned Lecter eating Ray Liotta's brain at the end of Hannibal. Liotta's words start to slur...It's a horrible scene, captured horribly well by Ridley Scott. As someone who thought he needed brain surgery two years ago (the doctor finally put my mind at rest, so to speak, and told me it was just a severe migraine), that scene is almost impossible for me to sit through!
