The Scariest Scenes in Cinema

Flavorwire has a list of ten movie scenes that masterfully elicit a sense of dread in the viewer, even though they're not all horror films (or eleven, if you count Cape Fear discussed in the introduction). Unless you're a youngster, you've probably seen most of them, but videos are included for your convenience. Watch at your own risk. Link

Scariest thing on film was in Poltergeist, when the boy goes to sleep, then at night he hears little bells jingling. The bells that were on his clown doll. He wakes up, the clown isn't on the chair where he left it, and he looks under the bed, to find...nothing! Pants-poopingly scary.

The last part in the first Halloween movie always freaks me out. The one where Jamie Lee Curtis is in the doorway and you see Michael sit up behind her. UGH.. that part freaked me out as a kid and still does now lol.
