It’s easy to talk about scary movies, but we wanted to highlight the individual scary scenes that really stick out. Some films aren’t scary by design, but happen to have creepy and shocking moments that deserve special recognition.
Their top 5 are from movies made more than 20 years ago:
- Psycho (1960) – The Shower Scene
- Carrie (1976) – Carrie’s Hand Pops Out Of The Grave
- The Shining (1980) – Danny Rides His Big Wheel Down The Hall
- Alien (1979) – Chestburster
- Poltergeist (1982) – Toy Clown Attacks Boy Under Bed
I nearly shit my pants when I saw that scene in Carrie back in the early 80s, and Poltergeist gave me nightmares about killer trees.
