    u kno like your favorite part of a horror film. but your all time favorite scene or sequence for any horror film.

    mine is:

    Black Christmas - the scene where the kids are singing, and Barb is getting killed. it is so amazingly shot, the close up of the killer's eye is sooo creepy, and her hand coming up and smashing the glass doves.

    There are way too many to mention, but the first one off the top of my head is the prom scene in CARRIE from the moment Tommy and Carrie are called right up until the bucket falls. Absolutely brilliant!

    oh yea i love that scene but my fave in Carrie is when Sue eye's follow up the rope and she tries to stop Chris and Billy from pulling the rope. the music, and the fact that its in slow motion is just amazing

    YES! That's part of the same sequence. EVERY time I see it, despite the fact that I know how it's going to end, I find myself hoping Sue gets there in time, but damn that Betty Buckley! She ruins everything!

    BTW - good luck tonight!

    Killer Klowns from Outer Space - where Dave returns to the police station and finds... things aren't the way he left them. I've seen that movie 23 times at least and that scene chills my bones every single time I see it.

    Also, with a thread like this, I shouldn't think "What Are Your Top 10 or Top 100 Favorite Scenes?" is far behind... :D (Which I could definitely go for)


    Wasn't that only about 1:45?

    Be careful with the Deadly Friend love- you can get crucified around here for saying anything positive about that movie. :evil:

    I was thinking Carrie too but my favorite scene has always been when she arrives home that night to all the candles and she walks up the stairs and you can see her mother hiding behind he door. I'll also throw in the ending house scene from Blair Witch.

    The slow-motion scenes in the first TWO "Friday the 13th" movies where Alice and Ginny machete their attacker. Love those! Part 3 needed a slo-mo shot like that when Chris owns Jason. A 3-D axe in slo-mo coming at you would have been cools.

    The time in that one movie where that one guy gets killed by the other guy, that was awesome.

    Not horror, but all of "Freebird' in Devil's Rejects.

    Also the sequence when Wydell has them tied up and fucking with them. That line of "we are playin' on a level that most will never see" is just too fucking cool.

    I've always loved that opening steady-cam sequence in Halloween too. Really feels like you are Michael for those few minutes.

    For me it has to be the wall-o-blood from Evil Dead 2. One of my favorite scenes. It's more hilarious than horror but who cares? It's still awesome.

    Love those too, also the leeches scene in Sleepaway Camp 2!

    "But, how do we know she's alive" ~ House on Sorority Row (haha, love how that line is delivered)

    When the killer runs down the stairs and grabs Olivia Hussey's hair in Black Christmas.

    *spoiler*
    The reveal of Joseph's death in The Changeling. The way the camera zooms really fast into the attic and you see his father grab his feet and drown him. It's not too uncommon to hear about people killing their children now but when I saw that as a child, it really creeped me out!

    I'll go with "the fade" from Carpenter's Halloween. From the opening shot, Halloween establishes an ever-mounting sense of true dread. But without a worthy payoff, it could have been all build-up and no pay-off.

    Fortunately Carpenter was up to the task. From the sheer innovation on display to the technical framing and lighting of that shot, I think it's on a whole other level. I've seen it hundreds of times and it still makes me giddy. Hats off to Carpenter and Cundey.
