Eight Scary Scenes in Otherwise Non Scary Movies

You kind of had to figure we’d be bringing out the scary type articles as Halloween approaches did you not?  I mean hey.  What kind of a site would we be if we didn’t get into the holiday spirit?  And honestly I know other sites have touched upon this subject before but I think it’s always fun to bring it around.

It’s cool when movies that aren’t intended to frighten you, freak you the hell out.  I mean granted I think it’s their intention to mix it up during the film to keep the audience on edge but man, some of these scenes are scarier than horror movies scenes.

Check out eight scary scenes in otherwise non scary movies….

Pee Wee’s Big Adventure – Tell ‘Em Large Marge Sent You


I don’t know about you but I definitely freaked out at this scene when I first saw this movie.  Definitely a little creepy.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory – Scary Ride


Man oh man this was NOT cool of them to do to us.

The Adventures of Huck Finn


When Ron Perlman made his first appearance as Pap Finn in Stephen Sommers’ 1993 adaptation of Mark Twain’s great novel, it was freaky as all hell.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang – Child Catcher


“There are children here somewhere. I can smell them.”  Is that scary enough for ya?

Full Metal Jacket – Private Pyle Kills Himself


I think this scene is more freaky than anything else but this definitely qualifies as being scary.

Star Trek II – Weird Beetle Stuff in the Ears


Sorry the clip isn’t in English but you get the point.  This is flat out nasty.

Trainspotting – Baby Crawl


This is flat out one of the freakiest scenes I’ve seen in any movie ever.  When that head turns it’s like exorcist or something.   Good Lord that’s bad.

Brazil – Put in on Big Boy


You didn’t think I could go the whole way without adding Terry Gilliam did you?  It was either this movie or Neverending Story.  I think what the little girl says qualifies as scary.
