Top Ten Scariest Movie Scenes Not from Horror Movies

The Top Ten Scariest Movie Scenes Not from Horror Movies

1 Face Melting (Raiders of the Lost Ark)

I wonder how they got away with the PG rating with this scene!

Gave me nightmares for weeks!

I was 8 when I saw this scence and I was freaked out but not scared so much that I couldn't sleep. I'm 12 now.

I don't know how they got that scene into a PG movie. Really, people's faces start to melt off and one even explodes!

2 Sloth (Se7en)

I still can't believe that guy was still alive

3 Dr. Doom (Who Framed Roger Rabbit)


He's a Judge... For the record.

But he's still kind of frightening. - dureckl

This CREATURE of a man - MoldySock

We never got to see his true form after he melted.

4 Donkey Transformations (Pinocchio)
5 The Tunnel (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory)

Couldn't cope with it as a kid and still can't cope with it as an adult. Seemed really unnecessary too to be honest. - xpixie

I'm thankful I never saw this scene when I was really young.

It scared me

I saw this movie in theaters not too long ago, when a movie theater near my house re-released it. When I saw that part again (the first time I saw it is whe my dad bought it for me on DVD. ) I kept flinching and covering my eyes. It's so scary! (I'm watching the movie right now l o l) - LpsDisneyTmntFreak

6 Decapitated Horse (The Godfather)

Makes me want to check my bed every morning

My god that scene is so bloody and creepy

7 Large Marge (Pee-wee's Big Adventure)

I was watching it and I got so scared, I paused it and had nightmares, I thought she was watching me in my sleep. - TeamRocket747

Makes you think twice about truckers - ghosts? For real creepy!

Scared the crap out of my dad when he was a kid

It totally scared me

8 Curb Stomp (American History X)

Brother showed me it. I cringed so much, it was probably one of the most violent and scary things I've seen in a while. Just the thought of you getting curb stomped Is painful. Should be in the top 4.

9 The Librarian (Monsters University)
10 The Witch Transformation (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs)

When I was little, I had to watch this scene over and over again because I loved this movie so much that I had to watch it a lot of times. I had no problem with it - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

The transformation scene is pretty intense for young kids.

The Contenders

11 Night On Bald Mountain (Fantasia)

One of my favorite scenes from fantasia. It's dark, creepy, and phenomenal.

This scene has the devil.

That's not the devil, that's Chernobog.

This part always scared 😱 me prompting me to leave the room out of fear

12 Bug (Matrix)

I was hoping this scene was on here because this scared the crap out of me when I was little ( I was only 4 years old when I saw this). This still creeps me out and especially when his mouth started disappearing so I'll definitely give the people who did this scene some credit. - Cbailey21

That was pretty disturbing along with the mouth sealing. Also the unnecessary deaths of the Nebuchadnezzar crew was pretty intense

Well done to whoever made this scene. I saw it when I was 7, by accident, I'm 20 now and still won't watch it because the though of watching it makes me feel sick. Plagued me with nightmares until I was about 14. When the film is on T.V., I delete the channel temporarily in case my curiosity gets the better of me, or worse in this case, I bet its not as bad as I might think. But I'll never watch it, **** you Elrond!

13 False Grail (The Last Crusade)

After I saw this scene I was like "no. I can't go on with the movie it's too awful." But then I went on because I proved myself that I'm not afraid and that it's just a movie.

14 Tetsuo Turns Into a Giant Mass (Akira)

Awesome anime film but that scene was screwed up

15 The Lion Scene (Jumanji)
16 The Librarian Ghost (Ghostbusters)
17 Darth Vader Burns on Mustafar (Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith)
18 Senator Kelly's Death (X-men)

It was more disturbing the scary

19 Frollo's Death (The Hunchback of Notre Dame)
20 The Pink Elephants (Dumbo)

Didn't make sense.

21 Hospital Massacre - Spider-Man 2
22 Nuclear Nightmare (Terminator 2: Judgment Day)

Terrifying and realistic. - Monsterz

23 Dracula's Angry Face (Hotel Transylvania)

I have to admit, it did scare me as a kid because it happened so suddenly.

24 Arnold Schwarzenegger's Baby (Junior)

This should be number 1

25 Private Pyle's Suicide (Full Metal Jacket)
26 Sloth (Goonies)
27 Eye Popping (Blade Runner)
28 The Scary Forest (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs)

Oh yeah. I remembered getting scared by this, but after watch it many times, it's not scary anymorr - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

29 The Heart Removal Scene (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom)


The sound of that makes me want to puke

30 The Nazgul (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring)
31 Singing In the Rain Rape Scene (A Clockwork Orange)

This is scary because of how most bad people often sing their favorite song while raping or murdering a person. They would sing a song out of enjoyment from causing a crime. I cannot watch singing in the rain without thinking of this.

32 T-Rex at Night (Jurassic Park)
33 The Orcs Send Thousands of Decapitated Heads Into the City of Minas Tirith (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King)
34 The Hell Sequence (All Dogs Go to Heaven)
35 Edwina Gets Decapitated Offscreen (Chicken Run)
36 The One Eyed Soldier That Shouts "Fire!" at Helms Deep (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers)
37 The Rancor (Star Wars: Return of the Jedi)
38 The Xiphactinus (Journey to the Center of the Earth)
39 Gmork (The Neverending Story)
40 Shrouded In Mystery, Man (Lost Highway)
41 Sid's Room Sequence (Toy Story)
42 Shelob (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King)
43 Nightmare Baby (Trainspotting)
44 Cohaagen's Death (Total Recall, 1990)
45 The Origin of the Rats of NIMH (The Secret of NIMH)
46 The Horned King's Death (The Black Cauldron)

His flesh peeled off as the cauldron sucked him into hell... I think

47 Jacob Marley (Disney's A Christmas Carol)
48 The Dementors (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban)
49 Thomas Hides from a Griever (The Maze Runner)

Those things are UGLY

50 Why So Serious? (The Dark Knight)

( Harry potter joke) Why so nosy?
