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

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

No.22 - A cheesy one this. The end of the "Reflection Of Death" segment of "Tales From The Crypt" where Carl Maitland (Ian Hendry) walks back to his old house after the crash terrifying everyone he meets along the way, then going to his now blind mistresses flat where he finally sees his true, zombie-like face in a mirror, thus realising that he is actually dead.

37) A Name for Evil - The shot just before & just after the opening credits
The camera pans through the trees, then zooms in on sunlight reflecting off a pool of water, the we roll through the opening credits, the back to the same pool of water. The camera zooms out & pans up revealing it's actually a backed up sewer in the city.

As dumb as the plot is (if you can call it that), the trick shots scattered throughout this movie always get to me.

I have no idea what # this one is in the line up but it's definitely a shocker. .

The scene from Caligula where wine is forced down a soldier's gullet then a sword is thrust into his belly releasing said wine.  If you stick with the movie past that scene you only have yourself to blame.

Strange numbering scheme, Ash.   Wink

I'll assume this is

31.) John Hurt gives birth to an alien (ALIEN)

32. Father Karras' dream sequence in "The Exorcist".

This part of the film was the only truly scary part, the most I've ever been disturbed by any film. During his dream when this face pops up, I nearly had a heart attack it shocked me so much. I actually really hate this face alot and freaks me out to even post it, so I don't reckon I'll be looking at this list again.

Speaking of faces popping up, in "Mothman Prophecies" (2002), which is mostly about mood rather than in-your-face shocks (the whole thing made me feel disconnected from reality in a very strange way), there is a very fast moment where Richard Gere is alone in his hotel room, swings open a closet door and THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE MIRROR! It comes and goes in a flash, Gere's character never even sees it, and it doesn't mean anything much except just part of the general weirdness of the events in this town. But that shocked the hell out of me and it still makes my hair rise on end a little to describe it.

Oh uh... I guess this is Number 33

I just did a re-review on this film recently.  I hope to be posting it in a few weeks. 

I'll add the following...

No. 36 Caligula - A soldier get his unit cut off and it is fed to the dogs who gobble it up like milk bones.

#37  The Joker's pencil magic trick in The Dark Knight.
Everyone in the theater (including me) yelled, "OH!!!" when he did that.   Thumbup  (followed by laughter)
It just happened so fast and unexpectedly.

(sorry about the numbering thing earlier.  Don't know what I was thinking.  The scene above was on my old post but I moved it so it could be #37)

I thought of another one.

#38  When what's her name comes out of the TV at the end of The Ring.
That freaked me right the f**k out!
