AntiChrist , the most pointless waist of Celluloid I have ever witnessed, made to shock and not much else!

Quite a few of my scary moments have been written already but ill add a few more.

Rec. - the fireman hitting the floor

Rec.- The opening of the attic to take a peak.

Salems Lot - The bedroom window scenes.

Evil Dead - Linda sitting on the floor singing.

Elm st3 - puppet boy.

The Omen - the music plus the nanny hanging scene.- please dont watch the remake.

Exorcist2 - in the late 80s exorcist wasnt available on vhs so we thought the sequal must be as good (its not), id never seen the original so the film stills of the original included at the start were quite menacing yet witnessing the girl being set on fire or the sudden appearance of regan playing with the heart of the doctor was quite scary.

Don't really know if it's a horror movie, but the end of "Saw". When the guy stood up out of the pool of blood in the middle of the floor. Also when Hannibal Lecter got off the querney in the back of the ambulance in "Silence of the Lambs".
Both of these moments made my jaw hit the floor.

A few spring to mind, the last 20mins of Martyrs stayed with me a while and A Serbian Film's ending (technically not a full-blooded horror and to be honest, we saw it coming) was a bit 'ahhh yep are they gonna...? Yeah they did.'

The 'jolt' that I crave, and still gets me every time, is the scene from the Exorcist 3 involving a corridor, a nurse and a BLOODY BIG PAIR OF SCISSORS!!

HAHAHA and one more, Ghostbusters "Get her!"

Probably not a horror as such , but to those who went to the cinema expecting to see just another Tarantino film had to be surprised when From Dusk Till Dawn ***spoiler**** suddenly turned into a vampire film !

in flower of the flesh when the poor woman gits a pin pushed through her temple and then the camera closes in on her eye and it comes out through the middle of the iris yeeeooouuuccchhh. The best eye seen in a horror film it still looks real today.

Zombie Flesh Eaters. the woman being pulled through the door and a large splinter goes straight in her right eye.

Posted on 9 Nov 2012 12:25:58 GMT

And later, when the heros go into the room and see her layed out on the table just as a zombie reaches in and pulls out her guts.

There's a zombie movie that I found on line and bought that is meant to be horror but is also a bit of a laugh. It's called 'Dead Snow' and is from Norway.

The zombs are a bunch of SS troops who have concealed treasure in the Norwegian mountains from the war and the obligatory bunch of horny teenagers encounter them on a skiing trip.

I'm quite surprised no-one has mentioned John Carpenter's Halloween,IMO the yardstick and template for many 70's and 80's horror 'flicks and never equaled or bettered for sheer nerve wrangling tension and edge of the seat ,jump out of your skin,didn't see that coming moments.Also David Cronenberg's The Fly,Jeff Goldblum's gradual transformation,the arm wrestling scene etc,raised the bar yet again.

"Jaw-dropping moments", Martin. Jaw-dropping moments. Even inferior horror films than the two you mentioned have plenty more jaw-dropping moments.

Sez you!

Maybe it's because we want a break from 'Halloween'-come on, loads mention it, but maybe if it had a better ending and wasn't received as the ultimate excuse for the illogical human killer never dying, and giving us all that tiresome predictable ending which ruins the whole thing, though I say this before bad endings became the norm, as 'Halloween' was, for he most part, a gripping and sustainable watch until that end, even though 'Black Christmas' is still its superior.

80s horror had so much variety that a fair number of nreve-janglers came from it, several of the absolute best being 'The Howling', 'Poltergeist', 'Scarecrows', 'Re-Animator', 'Amityville 2: The Possession', 'Cujo' and 'I, Madman' aka 'Hardcover'. Now the majority of these are completely ignored and underrated, and don't bare out the often levelled criticism that 80s horror was cheesy beyond belief; at least it had more variety of horror threats than any other decade before or after.

We're not talking about quality horror films. We are talking about jaw-dropping moments in horror films.

The use of a claw hammer and a skull in Ben Wheatley's Kill List. I still think Kill List is one of the best horror films for a while and though there's violence in lots of horror films not often do they portray the brutality of that scene.

I can't remember the title of the film, it is about a girl who turns down a loan request of an old woman and the old woman curses her. At the end when the girl thinks that she is free from the old woman's curse, we realise that she has the wrong letter or ring and that she is going to die! please help me with the title.
