Ghost (1990) might not be horror, but that scene where the guy gets dragged to hell always stuck with me.

  1. DUDE. When I saw this for the first time I had no idea it was coming and it freaked me out! It felt like it came out of nowhere after some of the romantic goofy stuff and I loved it.

  2. I probably would have been freaked out too if I hadn't spent hours watching Dorf videos with my grandad. Vincent Schiavelli will always be Leonard to me.

  3. My parents watched this movie all the time when I was a kid, and that scene scared the hell out of me. It did make me want to be a good person though.

  4. Yeah that scene is pure horror. Starting with the killer seeing his bloodied dead body, then you hear those unforgettable wails from the shadows. You even get a reaction shot from Swayze when they cut away from the action. You can see his look go from triumph to horror as Willy gets dragged away.

  5. Dude, forget the movie. I read that part in the book at 3:00 in the morning alone in my room and had to put it down immediately. Terrifying stuff. I have never been scared of a book before. lol.

  6. I will always have a soft spot for this movie (In hindsight it is sappy af), I was a bit obsessed with it as a kid because it was scary, romantic, and funny, but not grisly. That scene w Willy Lopez, the one with Vincent Schiavelli on the train, and when

  7. Oh these ghosts gave me nightmares as a kid. They were a recurring theme in my dreams for some reason and I think like a solid 90% of it is the groaning noises they make. Terrifying lol.

  8. I remember, as a young kid, watching a scene on tv (or it might have been a commercial) of a woman sleeping and a spider slowly drops right into her mouth. I’m 47 now, and in general my memory sucks, but that scene stuck with me. I finally googled it recently and apparently it was from Deadly Blessings with Sharon Stone. I’ve never liked spiders and think this may very well be why. Lol

  9. When I was like, 7 years old, my parents sent me to my room because they were going to watch a scary movie. As every sneaky young boy knows, you wait a while to actually start sneaking so you can lure them into a false sense of security. I crept down the hall and peeked around the corner, only to see the club scene in American Werewolf in Paris. I was traumatized. As much as that movie has its flaws that scene fucked me up so much as a kid. I still have nightmares about being ripped apart and eaten by wolves, even though I've seen it now and wondered why I was ever scared of it haha.

  10. When I was about 8 I accidentally caught the scene from the TV movie of IT where the kid sees his dad standing on the water outside the storm drain holding the balloons and then his corpse jumps out of the water and tries to grab the kid. Scared the absolute hell out of me for years. I now love the TV movie of IT but yeah it really freaked me out as a kid.

  11. So funny seeing this. I was a kid when this came out and me and my buddy were just talking about the things that took the bad guys to hell. Scary as shit. The noises they make are great. Really well done scene.

  12. I walked in the living room once as a kid when some slasher movie my parents were watching was at the final scare part. All that I remember is there is some kind of shack and as a lady (I think) walks by the killer busts through a window and grabs her. I screamed my fool head off at that. I have no clue what movie it was.

  13. You know it was written by the same guy who did Jacob's ladder? It was also directed the guy who worked on films like Airplane and the Naked gun films.

  14. There was a TV movie called The Spell (1977). There's a scene where she uses her powers and it makes a woman's face get all messed up and she dies. At 8 years old that scene gave me nightmares! (which is exactly why my parents told me not to watch it, but of course I didn't listen!) Re watched it recently and while not a horrible movie, the effects are pretty bad. But for a long time as a kid I couldn't even think about that movie. Only other one that got me that bad at that age was the end of Carrie, with the dream sequence at the end.
