This is probably the 6th or 7th 100 list we've got running right now, but I wanted to post this before I forgot it. Basically just moments in movies where you were either shocked, repulsed, or just flat out awe struck trying to process what you had just seen. Usual list rules apply. Try to list the movie your scene takes place in too, in case not everyone has seen the flick you're referring to.

No.1 - Suzanne's Lipstick Hungry Ta-ta (Night of the Demons) - Sadly there's no way to post a clip or screen shot of the actual scene mentioned b/c it's got nekkid boobage in it, but a demonically possessed Linnea Quigley runs lipstick over her face and chest... before her boob eats the lipstick tube! 
Buggedout Question BounceGiggle Lookingup Drink


No.1 - Lipstick eating demon boob (Night of the Demons)
No.2 - Angela's big reveal (Sleepaway Camp)
No.3 - Hammer shot to Kirk's head/Pam in the bone room (Texas Chainsaw Massacre)
No.4 - Music composition/Random crap montage (Hard Rock Zombies)
No.5 - Post-drugging blue nightlight scene (Murder On the Orient Express)
No.6 - Kung-Fu albino "PANCAKES!" (Cabin Fever)
No.7 - The wedding dream sequence (Glen or Glenda)
No.8 - Everything in El Topo (El Topo)
No.9 - Travis Bickle's swan song (Taxi Driver)
No.10 - The maggot scene (Galaxy of Terror)
No.11 - The whipping death scene (High Plains Drifter)
No.12 - The "disappearing body in the road" scene (I Married A Monster From Outer Space)
No.13 - Jason makes his first appearance (Friday the 13th)
No.14 - The "belly of the Star Destroyer" opening (Star Wars IV: A New Hope)
No.15 - The Star Child (2001: A Space Odyssey)
No.16 - Killer intestines (Re-Animator)
No.17 - Templar rape initiation (The New Barbarians)
No.18 - Ben's final fate (Night of the Living Dead)
No.19 - Killing of the 8 Russian mobsters (Boondock Saints)
No.20 - Anthony Piana's push-broom (War of the Worlds - Timothy Hines version)
No.21 - "Hand from the rubble" epilogue (Carrie)
No.22 - Final scene of Germany Year Zero (Germany Year Zero)
No.23 - Final scene of Session 9 (Session 9)
No.24 - Unmasking of the Phantom (Phantom of the Opera - 1925)

5.) 99% of Hard Rock Zombies.  However if I were to pick a scene, I'd say the part where the lead singer is composing the dead rising song and and odd montage of crap happens.  Taken from my review...
1.) Shot of werewolf in wheelchair
2.) Shot of old lady in wheelchair
3.) Shot of Chuck approaching lady in wheelchair
4.) Shot of black and white photos of violent acts
5.) Shot of Tommy and Robby laying on benches.  Tommy has blood on his face and isn't moving
6.) Shot of black and white photos again
7.) Shot of old woman and Chuck hanging out
8.) Shot of Tommy scaring Robby
9.) Shot of Chuck looking at Bimbo who is walking up the stairs
10.) Shot of Jesse playing bass
11.) Shot of pickled hand in jar moving
12.) Shot of tarantula

6) After Richard Widmark is drugged in Murder On The Orient Express, Jean-Pierre Cassel enters his compartment, switches off the overhead light then moves out of shot and puts the night light on, which turns the compartment and everything in it an eerie blue colour.  Buggedout That scene still gives me chills to this day ~ thank Sidney Lumet and the brilliant cameraman Geoffrey Unsworth B.S.C. for that.

7. The sudden appearance of Satan at Geln's wedding during the dream sequence of GLEN OR GLENDA?  Heck, the whole sequence is one long episode of shock and awe!

In no particular order:

Galaxy of Terror - the maggot
Given, I had seen that snippet from that Traci Llords vehicle a few years earlier, so I knew how it was going to end. Still, previous experience with stinkers made before & since lead me to assume the scene would be set up by dumber cliches. For instance, I first figured on some scenario in which Taaffe O'Connell would conveniently get naked first (ie, the obligatory shower scene), followed by a "Have you tried RUNNING AWAY?" scene.
Of course, the obligatory "Behind You!" scenes only served to reaffirm this assumption. All the way up to the moment when Damea turns around & screams, I still didn't expect the maggot scene to come on as suddenly as it did, nor did I expect such fast paced violence.

Mad Max - this one's full of anachronisms to classic cliches
Seriously, starting with a day in which everything goes wrong, we're introduced to a wimpy cop & a bullish oaf with the mentality of a pair of twelve year olds who hate each other, followed by a stubborn dispatcher who refuses to upgrade the status of a situation in order to preserve squad cars, which ultimately backfires, costing them every car involved, followed by an introduction to the most irresponsible cop on the force. Later, we meet a public official who wears battle armor with his three piece suit, a bodybuilding captain "with a sensitive side", and the gangsters aren't a bunch of identical shirtless guys on fat hogs, but rather punk rockers on race bikes, each unique in style & attitude.
I'd better stop before I give away the whole movie.

Cat People (1982) - Irena's "nature walk"
No matter how many times I watch this, I always find this scene every bit as confusing as I find it hot.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly - the opening & closing scenes
This one really plays with your head the first time you see it. Another example of a film that sets up dozens of cheesy cliches, only to completely surprise the viewer.

Roller Blade - Mother Speed inspects the fallen sisters
Even in my hormone infested youth, I found this scene silly.
""- Young Christopher discovers Satakoy's "affliction"
I'm still speechless after all these years.

I have no clue what number we're on now.  However my next nomiation is
The Whipping Death Scene In High Plains Drifter
I recall my father watching the movie when I was a kid and coming into the room during this scene.  Until this day, it disturbs the hell out of me to watch it.
