Scariest movie or TV scene

Your favorite movie or TV scene that made you want to sleep with the lights on.

Movie: The evil clown scene from Poltergeist. I had stuffed animals in my room at the time I first saw it, and I had to put them in the closet before I went to bed.

TV: "Squeeze" from the X-Files. The scene where Tooms reaches down and steals Scully's necklace as she walks by.

The first movie my father ever took me to see was the Godfather. The horse head in the bed scene made me cry.

At least I was 9 when my dad took me to see Alien, by then Carrie had pretty much made me scare proof.

Hitchcock's "The Birds" - the scene with the schoolchildren singing. Freaked me out as a kid. Where do you hide from birds?

When I was a kid I saw Flatliners. The scene where Sutherland gets attacked in the car made me not want to be alone in a car for a long time.

Then there was the mutated Fluke episode of the X Files. Couldn't comfortably sit on a toilet for a while after that.

When I was a kid in the early 70s, I saw the movie Gargoyles. I had a bedroom in the basement, while everyone else slept upstairs. I was absolutely terrified to go to my bedroom after seeing that movie.

More recently, the final half of Open Water really disturbed me, especially the ending. I was totally shocked by how it ended.

You just reminded me of the scene from the Poltergeist with the steak and he's like ripping his face apart.

I avoid scary movies but the last scene of the Blair Witch Project made me jump.

I haven't seen any of the current slasher movies like SAW. That's not my kind of movie...

There are lots of great scary scenes but the one I always thought most compelling and left me winded after was the bar scene in a little movie called After Dark with Lance Henricksen. Everything is just fine and then 15 second of absolute terror. EEECK!

BTW creepiest episode of X-Files (one of my all time favorite series) involved the Peacock Family. If you were fortunate enough to see it (since it is seldom rebroadcast) you know what I mean... Momma has to get her groove on!

The opening scene in The Sixth Sense when Bruce Willis' wife goes to the basement and the light bulb flickers. After watching that I have some issues going into the basement for a while.

That said, I still watch the Sixth sense many times.

They managed to make a Johnny Mathis song sound creepy, and the mother hid under the bed just like a monster in a kid's nightmare. The writers of that show were awesome.

BTW, Johnny Mathis wouldn't let them use his recording after he found out about the content of the episode. They had to get a Mathis impersonator to sing the song.

The Ring My Bell scene in The Book of Eli was pretty creepy. It wasn't scary, just creepy.

The last movie I saw that felt legitimately eerie to me was the remake of house on haunted hill. Like any good scary movie, it was a bit cheesy, but still scary. I can't even describe the one scene that sticks in my head. The The attempts at scary movies nowadays are pathetic.

I think campfire stories have creeped me out more than any movies... you know, the stories are all told and then you go back to your tent in the dark dark night and listen all night for the creeper or whatever...

I don't go in for the slasher movies, so Saw and the like are out.

I do remember having some issues with being out on hot summer nights after seeing the old movie Frogs.

The first Aliens was pretty good at keeping me on the edge of my seat... from the thing exploding out of his chest to finally seeing the folded creature in the pod with Ripley. One of those real "Oh sh_t" moments.
