    A couple of other amazing scenes.

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre - The entire sequence where we meet letherface for the first time is just frighting.

    An American Werewolf In London - When Jack and David are walking on the moors in the dark and you hear that fierce growl in the distance that gets closer and closer.

    Howling II - the Sybil Danning strip scene being repeated ad nauseum during the end credits. A genius move for a bad-but-fun B-movie.
    Halloween - the final 10-15 minutes are wonderfully staged, edited and scored. Dean Cundey's camerawork is just splendid, especially the framing.

    2. Rabid Grannies - the stranger at the gate, delivering the Birthday package (the cold black night, the creeky leaf-less tree branches, the full moon & frosty clouds wafting over it, the high-pitched haunting music score that sounds like a woman screaming, and of course- those creepy eyes and that...haircut)

    3. Friday the 13th Part III - the discovery of the bloody clothes in the tub, the dead body outside, trying to hold the doors closed, the dead body through the window, the chase through the house and outside (just an amazing, classic Friday the 13th chase: the best of Harry Manfredini's music, tense editing, the great camerawork, and finally instead of rain- wind, and used to great effect)

    4. Carnival of Souls - the scenes of Mary talking to the doctor (anyone else think this dialogue is REALLY smart for a little industrial horror film?)

    5. Sorority House Massacre II - Janey goes downstairs to get a drink

    6. Suspiria - Suzy discovers Sara's dead body, runs into Helena Markos's room, kills her, the academy self-destructs (especially the peacock ornament, the rolling balls hitting the wall, the "you're going to meet death now! The living dead!," and Helena's exploding room)

    7. Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood - Tina talks with Nick by the lake

    8. Fright Night - Jerry and Amy's long dance at the club

    9. Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives - Paula senses something wrong outside the girls' cabin, after putting Nancy to bed

    10. Dead Dudes in the House - Steve the zombie is finished off (saw blade in the back of the head, blood splattering on the wall, blood gushing head, his laughing and groaning; "guess the party's over...")

    11. Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan - Eva's chase and death scene on the dancefloor

    I forgot the one I was going to say when I loaded the thread but another came to mind, the scene from The Killing Hour where the swimmer gets pulled under and has his ankle handcuffed to the bottom rung of the ladder.
