Oh Good, Another Scary Movie Poll

This one from UK’s Channel 4: The 100 Scariest Moments on TV and film. The BBC lists the top 10:

    The show’s producer Mark Murray said: “The top 10 is full of images which have now entered pop culture history.

    “Anyone who has seen Jaws will never feel the same way again about dipping their toe into the ocean.

    “And the winning ‘Here’s Johnny’ scene from The Shining has become one of the most iconic screen images of all time, spoofed by other films and countless TV shows over the years.”

    The 10 top scary moments are:

    1. The Shining (1980) – Jack Nicholson chops through the door and shouts “Here’s Johnny!”
    2. The Exorcist (1973) – Possessed girl’s rotating head and projectile vomit
    3. Jaws (1975) – Severed head falls from boat
    4. Alien (1979) – Alien bursts out of John Hurt’s chest
    5. The Blair Witch Project (1999) – Heather Donahue in tears in the woods
    6. Ring (1998) – Sadako crawls through the television
    7. Halloween (1978) – Serial killer Michael’s face appears behind Jamie Lee Curtis in a house full of dead bodies
    8. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) – Leatherface’s general reign of terror
