What horror movie scene gave you the most nightmares?
Horror movies lately have become somewhat predictably as audiences become harder to scare. Looking back, what classic scenes from horror titles of the past caused you the most distress?
The one from Alien where the thing chewed its way out of that guy's chest. He was eating spaghetti. It was gruesome and terrifying to watch!
I dreamt of trex chasing after me and Jaws showed his big mouth at me. Those movies were bad for timid adults. However, my kids love to watch them.
Well Jaws scared me, and still has an effect with going in the water!
But it has to be the scene of Linda Blair in the Exorcist. I saw that as an adult and it scared me to the core. I bought the book and haven't yet read it for fear it may be scarier than the movie!
There are 2 scenes.
1 - In the original Halloween when Jamie Lee Curtis' friend gets into the car and the windows are steamed up. Still scares me silly, even writing this.
2 - In the original Friday the 13th when the villain (don't want to give away the the ending even though most people have probably seen it) is chasing one of the victims around camp on a rainy night.
OK, this is going to sound a little crazy, but keep in mind I was about 8 to 10 years old at the time. I don't think any movie scene ever scared me as much as the part with the Ghost of Jacob Marley in the 1984 version of "A Christmas Carol". This is the one with George C. Scott as Scrooge. I know, technically not a horror movie, but this adaptation certainly reminds us that Dickens wrote a ghost story! Frank Finlay played Marley and the effects are surprisingly believable for a 1980s made-for-TV movie. That ghost scared me so bad! To this day I swear I saw that blue guy in my bedroom that night!
I'm not really a horror movie fan. I'm sure this movie seems pretty tame compared to the graphic scenes common today. The 1963 version of The Haunting gave me the most nightmares. I was a little kid when I saw it on TV.
I dreamt of the scariest scene wherein Natre (the ghost) is sitting in the shoulder of his ex Tun.. AAAHHhhhhhh!! Then Tun recalled what an old man told him long time ago-that ghosts' soul are attached to their love ones.

Do horror films genuinely give you nightmares?Or do you just say that because you'd rather not watch them?

Hehehe...I hear ya. I love horror movies, I used to watch them by myself all the time, but depending on the movie, I WOULD make sure all the doors were locked! Nowadays....I can't remember the last time I was actually alone. Hmm. That kinda sucks.
