    Phillips hospital tower jump in A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3 all the way. I love this one, with Freddy as the Puppetmaster and all and folks trying to wake him up and all. Good stuff. :glasses:

    Definitely Father Karras in The Exorcist!!! That always makes me cringe. Has anyone here actually seen those stairs? It's horrifying to think that even a stunt man took a tumble down those things, even if they were covered in rubber!!!

    Wow, some real classics on that list! I had a tough time picking between PROM NIGHT, THE EXORCIST, THE OMEN, THE GOOD SON and HALLOWEEN: RESSURECTION.

    In the end though, I had to go with JLC's neo-classic scene in H:R. Seeing the slashers most recognizable heroic icon going down was worth the price of admission for me!

    Mac falling off the cliff in The Good Son. I love how his mom just lets that little fuck fall to his death.

    I second that! :D This was the first scene I thought of and was a bit surprised it wasn't a choice, although to be fair (and no offense intended) all the options were pretty mainstream. From what I remember, I Dismember Mama had a similar scene where the killer falls to the concrete and his arm becomes dislodged, only to be reconnected in the next shot.
