The Scariest Movie Moments

The 100 Scariest Movie Scenes Of All Time!

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:

  1. Psycho (1960) – The Shower Scene
  2. Carrie (1976) – Carrie’s Hand Pops Out Of The Grave
  3. The Shining (1980) – Danny Rides His Big Wheel Down The Hall
  4. Alien (1979) – Chestburster
  5. 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.

  1. The poltergeist “clown” scene was memorable for me. But the second time I saw it was funny, not scary.

    Here’s how the scene went the FIRST time(according to my memory). The boy notices the clown missing. (every viewer’s heart races) He looks over one side of the bed…nothing. (chewing fingernails) He looks over the other side of the bed…nothing. (relief) He sits up and WHAM! the clown grabs him (every man woman and child in the theater shits their pants).

    The SECOND time I saw it…The boy notices the clown missing. (every viewer’s heart races, except mine, cuz I saw it before) He looks over one side of the bed…nothing. (some guy in the back of the theatre shouts RRAAAAAAARERRGGGGG!!, every man woman and child in the theatre shits in their pants, but the movie continues) He looks over the other side of the bed…nothing. (relief) He sits up and WHAM! the clown grabs him (every man woman and child in the theatre dumps a second load in their pants).

    FUNNY!

  2. When I was maybe 10 years old and I saw “When a Stranger Calls” on TV late at night. Two scenes. #1: When the cop calls the babysitter and says, “The calls are coming from inside the house! Get out of the house! Get out of the house now!” #2: Later on in the movie when she turns around in bed expecting it to be her husband, but it’s the killer instead. Talk about crapping your pants.

    I looked in my closet and under my bed before I went to sleep every night until junior high.
