    Well, we had windows, mirrors, bathrooms, closets, bathtubs etc so we might as well do those doors ....

    I picked the killer peaking through the cracked door in BLACK CHRISTMAS of course. Its a classic scene in this chilling masterpiece, and is a truly frightening moment.

    Second place goes to the lovely Cristina encountering her dad from behind the door in the masterful THE SENTINEL. That scene freaked me the fuck out big time when I first saw it, and still gets to me a good bit.

    I voted other, Leatherface (ugh, I hate calling him that...) Um, Chainsaw slamming the metal door in Texas Chainsaw Massacre. That gets me every time I see it.

    The door scene in House by the Cemetary is freaky ass shit. There's also that cool door scene in In the Mouth of Madness...

    There's alot here.

    I voted for the one in House by the Cemetery. That was some good shit and I also love seeing children being traumatized. :evil:

    How about the Monster breaking down the door in "Monster in the Closet"? It's like he has a system for breaking down doors or something.

    Wow, I never knew there was so many great door scenes. I had to go with THE SHINING though, that scene is the best part of the film, and definitely the most memorable door scene to me. BLACK CHRISTMAS comes a close second. Great poll hellditty.

    Well, I voted for Jack and "Here's Johnny!" But after reading the other responses, I'd have change mine to "other" for the TCM scene that McChrist mentioned.

    There are a lot of awesome door scenes, but I'll never forget the The Shining one.

    One hell of a list.

    It's actually worth mentioning that one of the biggest jump scares that ever got me involved a door. In Critters 2. I believe it was during the scene where the 2 teenage main characters, the red haired kid and the black haired love interest, were visiting the guy who lived on a farm. The guy who discovered and sold the eggs for beer. The guy with the hat. So, I'd add that to the list...

    I'd say The Shining scene is the most iconic. But... color me surprised since I don't like this movie, I think easily the most tense and nerve-wracking moment on that list belongs to The Haunting. So, I'm voting for that.

    After that, honorable mentions go to the pizza delivery scene in Killer Klowns from Outer Space. Followed by all the door scenes in The Fog- including the one with Mrs. Kobritz and the one where Nick almost opens it at the wrong time...

    Also, in Deep Red, where Marcus/Mark sees the killer's shadow slowly getting closer through the doorway, he rushes to lock the door, and then the killer whispers at him through the door. Good one.
