#16) In  "I Married a Monster from Outer Space", the scene in which Tom Tryon as Bill Farrell is driving over to wish his bride to be good night, he sees what appears to be a body in the road, stops the car, gets out and goes to the front of the car expecting to find a body. There's nothing there, as he's looking at the ground you see a shadow move across the windshield and then an alien claw reaches out and grabs him. My wife and I just watched this while eating dinner, it made Poogie jump and even though I knew it was going to happen it always startles me, probably because the first time I saw it I was 8 years old and it really scared me.

How about when Jason pops out of the water at the very end of the first Friday the 13th film?  Admit it, the first time you saw that, it was a real jump moment!

This one fits more in the awe department:

18. The opening shot of Star Wars, with Princess Leia's blockade runner soaring overheard, followed by the Imperial Star Destroyer which keeps going and going and going and...

As an eight year old in 1977, that shot blew my mind.

Okay, I guess Cerb isn't familiar with the "one nomination per post" rule of the "100" lists. As such I took his first choice and updated the master list accordingly, meaning we're now at #16.

No.16 - Attack of the Killer Intestines - Couldn't find a screen cap or YouTube clip, but the finale to Re-Animator as West is entangled in the constrictor-like large intestines of Hill's over-juiced body had me wondering if someone had slipped something into my Sloppy Joe before I watched it.

I nominate the Templar 'initiation' scene from THE NEW BARBARIANS. . .



I think all here who've seen the movie will agree this was an awfully shocking (and disturbing) WTF moment.  You expect a lot of things to happen to the hero of a post-apoc western when the bad guys capture them.  Bloody noses and black eyes or getting tied backwards on a donkey and sent out into the desert, sure, but rape!?

18.  The end of the original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.  Caught me totally off guard.  So bleak, and so perfect.

When the twins were hanging upside-down from the collapsed air duct while killing those 8 Russian mobsters in Boondock Saints. They each had argued with the other over the need for the rope and the knife, both of which were ultimately crucial to their survival in that scene.

If not that scene, the one in the beginning where the butch woman kicks the one in the nards, , only to get KTFO by the other. I KNEW from that scene alone that I was going to like that movie.

Sorry, but Mad Max can't be reduced to just one scene. There are just too many eye popping moments to count, even within the "eyes popping" moment.

I'm not CERB and can I post now...??    Question   BounceGiggle

I'm sorry, but I have to nominate this. Bluesad The finale of GERMANIA ANNO ZERO (aka GERMANY YEAR ZERO 1948) this clip is 6 minutes, it is cut a bit, but it is there.  I know of know more devastating denoument in cinema (hey BELA, put that in yer pipe and smoke it.)   Wink   Though edited down, please don't watch the last 30 seconds of this 6 minute clip if you're easily disturbed.

That wasn't in reference to you Wonka, it was about Cerb's post where he posted several scenes instead of just one on the previous page of submission. It's always gotta be about you, doesn't it? Twirling
