Martin Scorsese plays brilliantly with voiceover here. It makes us feel *safe* - Nicky Santoro is narrating this scene, so we know it must end well-AARRGH!
Rudely ripped from our comfort zone, we’re forced to watch Nicky and bro’s brutal beating before they’re piled, still alive, into a shallow grave.
The worst? They’re still breathing, dust sticking to the still—wet blood covering their faces.
A warming thought: it’s based on a true story.

nice list! i've seen all of these movies except for "1984", and i think i'm a more complete person because of it!
just add the home invasion scene from "henry: portrait of a serial killer" and the dead baby scene from "trainspotting" and you could bring the list to an even 30!

Fantastic list TF, you've really outdone yourselves with this one - some great films on the list!
Personally I would add Pascal Laugier's Martyrs, but not a specific scene - just the whole running time. It really is a horrifying experience to sit through! Not the sort of film to watch on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Loving the list guys!
Although I didn't think Audition was too worthy of a top 10 contender.
I've got to say I'm surprised the Head Bashing of Irreversible wasn't in there.
But the Rape Scene totally outweighs that.

Nil By Mouth beating of the wife scene is always pretty hard to watch! would have thrown that in there.

great job on the list
I would say the rape scene from the Accused still makes me feel nauseous and awful though. Also the ending of KIDS.

Definitely a good list of horrifying movie moments; I have seen a handful of them, and do plan to watch the rest.
However I regret watching your video clip for Cannibal Holocaust; the scenes of animal torture have been removed from the DVD, luckily, and I wish I hadn't watched the turtle die...

Nice list - but where's the fire extinguisher scene from Irreversible? That scene is similar to the bottle scene in Pan's Labyrinth, but much much worse. (Or better, depending how you look at it.)

Anything with Tom Hanks!! He is the worst actor ever and he's pretty ugly too

I can't watch it...it says click below, but there's just unclickable empty space, no matter how many times I refresh... :(
