What Movie (or Book) Scene Scares You the Most






I am joining together with a bunch of awesome bloggers in the 2012 BlogFEST! I have the reins for today's writing challenge and in the spirit of Halloween, my prompt is this:

Describe a scene from a book, movie, or television show that scares you the most.


Immediately two scenes come to mind for me. First, the ending to "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," where Donald Sutherland's character screams at the end. I can see this movie fifty times and this still freaks me out. Here's the movie clip:



And then the second movie clip that freaks me out is the ending to "Neverending Story" where that kid is about to plunge into the waterfall. I don't know why but that freaks me out every time. I couldn't find a clip of it, but if you have ever seen that movie, you will know what I'm talking about!

Take part in today's challenge by commenting below or writing your own post! If you write a post, share it on the Facebook page for the blog event - http://Facebook.com/BlogFEST-2012.

    2. Totally forgot about Vincent Price and the "help me, help me." My brother and I used to imitate that scene over and over.. :) Thanks for the flash back!

  5. Scenes are difficult to recall, In fact recall itself is difficult for me, but I loved your Prompt and here is my take:

  7. From Shutter Island, the scene where he finds his children in the pond out back, where his wife just finished drowning them. *eek*

  8. The movie, "The Others" with Nicole Kidman. I can't say the scene that scares me the most because it would be a spoiler to those who haven't seen it, and if you haven't, it's a must this Halloween season.

  12. I'm not very susceptible to being spooked. However, "Play Misty For Me" gives me the creeps.

  14. The scariest for me are the opening scene of Twister (nearly happened to our family when I was a kid) and the first encounter with the T-Rex in the first Jurassic Park.

  15. Yikes, this was a hard topic, Nicole. I had to do quite a bit of thinking here. I don't know if these scenes are the ones that scare me THE MOST -- but they sure rank right up there. Now I think I have to go watch the movie. It's been at least a week or two since I've seen it. Gotta feed my addiction... :-)

  16. I know that I am a day late (well a few lol) and a dollar short, But here is my take! Love this topic. I thought with the month of October we would have more "scary" prompts, so I was glad to see this one!! Great Prompt, and here is my scary scene!
