SCARIEST SCENES IN NON-HORROR MOVIES

  1. The flooding sewer drain scene in "Now and Then"
    WTF SAM IT'S JUST A STRING BRACELET, YOU AREN'T EVEN GOING TO BE TALKING TO TEENY 25 YEARS IN THE FUTURE. Thank God for Crazy Pete!! There is nothing important enough in my life to enter a sewer for.
  2. When the ape tells Tom Felton "NOOO" in "The Rise of the Planet of the Apes"
    This is one of two times I remember audibly gasping in a movie theater (@kasey_johnson legit screamed). The other was due to a Selena Gomez cameo in a very recent movie I won't spoil (YOU'RE WELCOME).
  3. The junkyard scene in "The Brave Little Toaster"
    Seriously this was so unnecessary, can't a peaceful landfill suffice??
  4. The incinerator scene at the end of "Toy Story 3"
    WHYYYYYYYYYY??? DIDN'T WE LEARN ANYTHING FROM THE BRAVE LITTLE TOASTER???
  5. Everything with the Child Catcher in "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang"
    "Hey what if we make a movie for children with a villain that steals children!!"
  6. The zipper scene in "There's Something About Mary"
    It's not possible for the zipper to actually reach the top, right???
  7. The flying monkeys in "The Wizard of Oz"
    Also the grabbing trees are really scary
  8. The hiding scene at the end of "The Sound of Music"
    Rolf is evil. You don't lead on naive 16 year old almost 17 year old Liesl and then lead the Nazis to her and her family!!
  9. Scout and Jem are attacked in "To Kill a Mockingbird"
    This was also v scary to me when my school READ THIS BOOK AT US in 8th grade (that wasn't a typo...)
  10. The hangnail scene in "Black Swan"
    Umm just ask for a bandaid next time, Natalie Portman...
  11. The tunnel scene in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory"
    This might not still be scary but I don't know because I only watch the Johnny Depp version now because it is so much better!!
  12. Return to Oz -heads in the hallway scene
    When Dorothy has to get to the original head's case to grab the powder of life but then she wakes it up and then all the heads wake up and start screaming... TERRIFYING!!!!! (This is my favorite movie btw) *also, this is a children's movie...

  13. The scene where Pinocchio turns into a donkey in The Adventures of Pinocchio
    I can still hear the donkey scream 20 years later. Also, I might have nightmares just from google image searching that movie.
