Not a big horror fan but the scene which always gets me is in the original Texas Chainsaw when they are first walking around the house and they go to the door with the plastic curtain across it and Leatherhead appears and puts a hammer through someones head, shocking and brutal.

E.T did have its scary moments but not sure it was a horror movie Inter...But good list..

Good scene that Rowley it was a strange film..........The ring choice is good too..........John Hurt giving birth is the chestburster scene Rick..

Rick...great minds and all that..

Invasion of the bodysnatchers is a good call suffers probably from being a remake...The Nanny was a scary moment too....good call

The scene that screwed me in that film though was when the photographer was showing Peck the pictures and how the subjects all died.......and then showed him a picture with himself on it and a line to show how he was going to die...Truly unnerving.

The problem with It was it's a made-for-Tv movie...The twins is a good call as is James Caan having his toe nails done..

yeah i see your point with IT, that and the fact that Stephen king can not finish a story properly Smile

agree with Misery, always a tough scene to watch, like the hammer torture scene from Kill list

Generic in a lot of films, but can't remember who did it first and best (Scream probably). Cute girl talking on phone to psycho who reveals himself to be in the house. It is generic now, like I said, but well done first time.

End of Carrie with her hand coming from her grave to pull the person down. Set a precedent for lots of other movies.

Race with the Devil. RV surrounded by ring of fire, trapping everyone inside, while the satanists close in.

Watched Salem's Lot all the way through recently (the 79 version). Actually quite enjoyed it, thought James Mason was great in one of his last roles.

I see Stephen King as being the godfather of horror and this is usually done some justice in his adaptations. Pet Sematary is the most notable imo, really worked me over the first time I watched it. Although I still love it, never got what people found greatly frightening about The Shining, thought the book was far more disturbing if I'm honest.

The Sixth Sense has a few (un)settlers in its locker ("Dinner is not ready", "I'll show you where my dad keeps his gun", "I'm feeling much better now" etc)

This probably doesn't feature any top 10 moments by many people's considerations but I feel it deserves a mention anyway - Eraserhead. Maybe I'm just a sucker for the psychological genre, at least when it's done well. I could name more than one scene that seriously freaked me.

Eraserhead was the most harrowing film I'd seen until watching Grave of the Fireflies, the main difference being that there was nothing sweet or sad about Eraserhead - it's just an ugly, nasty film - has been quite a while since I saw it so probably due another watch.

you guess correct Truss. I don't know why tbh, I just like them.

The gore is taken to the extreme in films 4-7, 1-3 aren't so bad for gore

Which is the one where they are both trying to find a key at the beginning and one gets the stitches ripped from his mouth and tons of blood comes pouring out..

Made me feel sick..
