I grew up on horror movies. Really. I think the first horror movie I saw was a black and white about zombies, and I couldn't have been more than 5.  I remember sitting with my mom at the age of 7 and watching an R-rated slasher movie called Hell Night. Pretty much no movie was off-limits to me. As a result, I had a steel stomach. Gore and things jumping out of bushes didn't bother me. Nothing was really scary. I understood it was all make-believe.

However, there are few exceptions... things that make me jump out of my skin with fright or disgust or whatever.  For example, despite having absoutely no gore, this is the scariest movie scene ever:


(And also, the latest pig-eating challenge on Survivor last night.  What WAS that??  Much worse than any gorefest I've ever seen. For those of you watching X Factor instead, be glad. Be VERY glad.)

So.... in anticipation of Halloween, I have to ask... what movie scene scares the heck out of you?

All of Insidious - I made a fool out of myself in the theater because I jumped and screamed at everything. It's a great movie.

Scene wise, I would have to say the scene in Poltergeist with the tree coming through and the one with the clown under the bed. And that moment in Halloween where Michael Myers is standing in the sheets hanging on the clothesline, watching Laurie's window.

I have never seen Insidious!

But oh yes, I think an entire generation of people hate clowns just because of that scene. And before that movie, I really wanted an in-ground swimming pool, but after? Not so much.
