    Some I'd agree with, some, I know nothing about.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

Totally agree about The Thing, scariest scene was definitely the blood test.  With Alien though it would be when the facehugger jumps out of the egg and right through the guy's face shield on his spacesuit.  You're already feeling really on edge because the environment is so weird, and the guy's separated from the others, and then you see that weird egg and something's moving in there...what is that AHHHHH!!!!  BounceGiggle

Nightmare on Elm Street - when Freddy's arms got really long and he dragged his knives against the wall of the alley.

The Ruins - when they climbed down into that pit because they thought they heard a cell phone ringing, only to realize the plants were making that noise to lure them down there - and of course by that time they were completely surrounded by those plants.

Quatermass and the Pit - when they went in that old building on Hobbs End and got all nervous and freaked out.  For some reason that scene has always worked great for me.

Some others I really liked:

Quarantine - not a big favorite of mine overall, but one awesome jump scare at the end.

The Exorcist:  The Beginning - when the kids are out by the well and a hyena instantly jumps out of the darkness and just chomps that one kid.

I would add the Monster busting out of the closet scene in The BRAIN THAT WOULDNT DIE-the whole movie had me on edge with the monster banging on the door-ripping the assistants arm off-when he finally busted out I jumped !

.JAWS-when Cheif Brody is shovling s**t to the shark-and BAM!
"Your going to need a bigger boat."Goddam straight.
.The TEXAS CHAINSW MASSACRE-the whole f**king movie-but the dinner table scene is bugged out-the quick cuts to the girls eyes rolling in sheer terror. Aoooooow!
.HENRY-PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER-when Otis and Henry are watching the video tape of themselves murdering a mother and child-f**ked up s**t, man.

I am happy that they included films other than horror films, because not all the scary moments are in horror films, but I am unhappy of their definition of science fiction and fantasy, as some of the films listed are actually horror. Which leads us to "Descent."

Besides it being a horror film and not science fiction or fantasy, I do agree about it being scary. Where we disagree is what makes it scary. For me, it is not the reveal, that I can handle. What scared me was not knowing what was down there. That was what I found scary.

I agree.  DESCENT's reveal was well done, but the part where they first get lost was the scariest part of that movie to me, because it felt so plausible.

re: THE EXORCIST, I wasn't scared so much by the crab walk;  but there's a scene where the mom is going up to check on Regan and the camera shows her completely dark room, and right before the door opens there's a nanosecond where you can see a devil's outline in the doorway.  That freaked me out because I wasn't sure if I'd even really seen it.

Overall, that's a pretty good list.  I especially like:
SIGNS: say what you want about the rest of the movie but that particular scene is amazing.
PEEPING TOM - I love that movie, more psychologically damaging than jump-scary.
PAN'S LABYRINTH
THE THING - although "Clear!" - CHOMP! probably ranks higher for me.
THE FLY
I WALKED W/A ZOMBIE
CAT PEOPLE
MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE - hell yes
NOTLD
EVENT HORIZON - "Where we're going, we don't need eyes to see....Buggedout Buggedout
28 DAYS LATER
DAWN OF THE DEAD - poor, poor Roger
REC
NOSFERATU - the whole thing, really.

I have to agree on the lost part of Descent but for a slightly different.  I'm just claustrophobic and the idea of being underground and lost isn't a prospect I enjoy.  For me, Descent works even if they were just lost and never were able to get out.  Forget creatures feeling trapped and enclosed are more frightening for me. 

For some of the others:
Signs was more surprising then frightening. 
Fire in the Sky scared me quite a bit when I was younger on the abduction scene.  Had a friend that was freaked over aliens and it made me jumpy as well.

Most of the rest lost most of their impact by friends and family spoiling the surprise.  I hate being told about scenes in movies and try to avoid telling too much as if I know something is coming I tend to focus in on that scene, it loses impact and I completely lose focus in the other scenes.
