Top 10 Scariest CGI Moments/Movies/Shows

Who hasn't seen a CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) moment that has turned into nightmare fuel or has just plain creeped someone out? I know I have. The reason i've made this list is because there are so many iffed up CGI moments out there, and that a majority of people have probably seen at least one on this list. If i'm missing anything, just add it to the list. Sometimes though, it's not just a single part that can be really messed up, but can be a whole show or movie.

The Top Ten

1 "You're Not Perfect"  Courage the Cowardly Dog

This is from courage the cowardly dog, this is by the far scariest CGI I've ever seen. This part is when a blue CGI trumpet fetus tells courage in his dreams that he isn't perfect. If you see a picture, it will sure send chills down your spine, but it's even worse in motion. With distorted, off cue music, an eerie background, a creepy voice, and that thing, it's bound to give you nightmares. I know it gave me some pretty unforgettable ones. - Thelistmaker

2 Mars Needs Moms (Movie)

Pretty much the whole thing. - Thelistmaker

3 Breaking Dawn, Part 2, Baby Renesmee

The CGI baby is so terrifying. It doesn't look realistic at all. - Thelistmaker

4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Reboot (Movie)

They shouldn't have done the turtles in CGI. - Thelistmaker

5 The Polar Express (Movie)

It's the pure uncanny valley that creeps people out. - Thelistmaker

Certainly not Tom Hanks's finest hour. - PetSounds

6 Jay Jay The Jet Plane (Show)

It's even worse than Thomas the Train. The horrors! - Thelistmaker

7 Dirtgirlworld (Show) Dirtgirlworld (Show) Dirtgirlworld, stylized as dirtgirlworld, is an Australian-Canadian children's television series created by Cate McQuillen and Hewey Eustace of Mememe Productions.

This is the reason why people shouldn't do the deed with balloons. - Thelistmaker

8 Noseybonk from Jigsaw the Show

There's no CGI in this show. Did you even do your research?

How funny? The show has the same name as the famous movie Jigsaw. No wonder it's so scary. - Thelistmaker

9 Pennywise From The New IT Movie Pennywise From The New IT Movie It (sometimes capitalized as IT), more commonly known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, is the titular main antagonist of the novel, its 2017 film adaptation and the 1990 TV adaptation. It was portrayed to be a shapeshifting and malevolent entity millions (possibly billions) of years old, and with no more.

This is why people are afraid of clowns. - Thelistmaker
