Scariest Movie Scene

I'll say the scene with the nurse in Exorcist 3 (if you've seen it, you know which scene I'm talking about ). I've seen that movie a dozen times, and that scene still scares me every time. Great movie, in general, brilliant writing.

The scene in the boiler room where Freddy is slicing off his fingers (Nightmare on Elm Street 1)

The original movie still is one of the scariest movies in my mind

Oh yeah, and the scene in Halloween when you think Michael is dead and in the background he suddenly sits straight up (if you've seen the movie, you know where I am talking!)

While it may not be the scariest, the one that made me jump most was the scene from "Jaws". No further explanation needed!

You stole my thunder (popcorn?). When Jaws first came out, the lines stretched around the block to get in. Our party got the last four tickets for this particular show... and they were in (about) row six. The joint was packed.

So when "Bruce" (the cast's name for the star of the flick) unexpectely showed his smiling face while Roy Scheider was chumming from the stern, I went about two rows backwards. The collective gasps by the entire audience and numerous cries of terror were unforgetable.

Seeing this same scene 30 some years later (on a TV screen), it looks pretty low tech and cheesy, but for its time and from row six in front of a huge movie screen, it left a lifelong impression!

The deadpan "We need a bigger boat" observation was a priceless.

That's right Danny. It seems a little low tech now. My wife took the kids to see it the night before she was able to pry me away from TV to see it. She told me she sat next to a stranger when she saw it the previous evening. The other woman grabbed my wife's arm, and screamed when that scene was shown. It was pretty good for it's time.

i "loved" that scene in "the night of the living dead" [as my avatar already suggests ], where that girl slowly dies, and then kills her mother in that basement of the house where they hid.... this scene is just perfectly done in that remake - the colour version of the first movie...
