As the last few hours of Halloween are dwindling down I want to take the time to revisit an old post. Back in May, GGB highlighted some ‘Scared As Sh*t Movies‘ that still frighten me to this day but now I want to dig deeper and share some scary movie moments that still make me jump or cringe. *Alert this post contains spoilers*
“House of 1000 Corpses” To put it plain and simple Rob Zombie is one twisted SOB. “House of 1000 Corpses” and “The Devil’s Rejects” are still two movies that just flat out terrify me. There are elements that I guess are suppose to be comical but in “House of 1000 Corpses” when Mary Knowles (Jennifer Jostyn) finally escapes only to be stabbed in a vacant forest is very, very scary; not to mention Baby’s laughs.
“The Shining” The thing that’s most bothering about Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) in “The Shining” is that he doesn’t even realize he’s going crazy until it’s too late. He’s sitting in this room for weeks and weeks writing this “book” than goes completely bonkers! It’s true all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. The part where Wendy Torrance (Shelley Duvall) confronts Jack and he tells her all the sick things he’s going to do to her has me on edge every time. Note To Self: Never agree to tend to a vacant hotel during the winter no matter how fabulous it is.
“The Rats” Now if you want to, well you probably won’t WANT TO, see a film that will make your skin crawl “The Rats” will for sure do it. I recently saw this film with my family and literally we all were screaming and covering our eyes due to the MAJOR creep factor. The film follows a department store manager and an exterminator as they attempt to save NYC from a swarm of genetic engineered rats. Prepare to cover your eyes, the scared as sh*t moment comes when the swarm of rats are lured into a swimming pool and the lead character Susan Costello (Mädchen Amick) falls in, Ahhhh!
“The Hitcher“ There’s the original and then there are the countless remakes and inspired films based off the 1986 movie “The Hitcher.” Don’t get me wrong there are many heart pounding moments in the classic film but in the remake with Sophia Bush (Grace) it may be a bit more petrifying because it’s more updated. The scary part in this film is one of those unexpected moments. Grace and Jim (Zachary Knighton) have already been through hell and get scared out of their wits once more when the hitcher John Ryder (Sean Bean) drops an entire car attempting to smash the couple on the run for their lives. My nerves would have be officially shot.
What are some movie moments that still send a chill up your spine?
