10) THAT GOD DAMN BAG: Audition
I can't even begin to tell you how high I jumped when that damn bag moved the first time I saw Audition. I know it scares most people, but for some reason...I yelped something fierce.
09) SHUT UP LINDA!!: Evil Dead
I hate creepy laughter. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. If I'm ever in a dark room and I hear that manic laughter, there's a good chance I will flip shit and run as fast as I can towards the exit.
08)THEY'RE ALL GONNA LAUGH AT YOU: Carrie
It wasn't even so much that she was wreaking havok on the prom as it was the vocal overlaps from her mother, teachers, and classmates that did it in for me.
07)CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE TO DIE: Opera
Argento is a sick puppy, you know that? Everyone knows that I'm a major wimp when it comes to any form of eye trauma, so this entire scene gives me the heebie jeebies and makes my hair stand on end.
06)SPILL YOUR GUTS: City of the Living Dead
Fulci isn't far behind when it comes to being truly demented in the head. COTLD has plenty of death scenes to make me feel uneasy, but the most famous is still the one that gets me.
05)THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS: The Children
I'm a sucker for killer kids. I love children to the point of no return and when I see them turning on people...I can't handle it. I really can't. This one has a scene in particular involving a sled and a gardening tool. Jesus. H. Macy.
04)BUT...I THREW THAT...WAIT...: The Changeling
The real kicker in this one for me is obviously the ghost in the water, but this scene comes awfully close in making my heart skip a few beats.
03)EVERYTHING FLOATS DOWN HERE: Stephen King's "IT"
I hate clowns. HATE. Clowns. That's all that needs to be said.
02)IT'S A KIDS SHOW...WTF: Are you Afraid of the Dark
I don't care that it isn't a movie, and I don't care that it isn't all that scary. When I was a little kid, I was absolutely FLOORED by this television show, but that opening sequence gave me nightmares. I can't explain why, but it did. Even to this day the sound of the theme song triggers the slightest bit of fear within me. Make fun of me all you want, I know.
01)I'LL JUST BE DIRTY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE KTHNX: Psycho
Of course the granddaddy of all horrifying death scenes had to top this list. There's a genuinely horrifying thought about showering in places other than my home. I still check shower curtains and lock doors in hotels...just in case.
