Scariest Movie Moments and Scenes: The compiled list, in unranked alphabetical order by film title, presents a solid collection of the most classic, 'scariest' scenes in movie history, including film scenes that were once considered 'scary' upon their initial screenings (or scary for young viewers), but have lost some of their shock appeal. Films represent some of the best and worst of the horror film genre including entries from the classic Universal 30's monster films to some of the scariest, most shocking, bloodiest and gore-ridden slasher films of the recent past.
[Author's Note: Admittedly, the word 'scariest' may also be interpreted as most horrifying, shocking, or many other such synonyms.]
Other Sources of Scariest Scenes in Film History: Many other sites and horror books have attempted to compile listings of the scariest scenes in film history. In late October 2004, the Bravo cable network first presented a countdown of 100 movies that contained the 100 Scariest Movie Moments in Film History, later supplemented with Sharp Entertainment's 30 Even Scarier Movie Moments in October 2006. Other sites and film critics have presented their own compilations of cinema's scariest scenes, such as the UK's Channel Four and RetroCrush. Sharp Entertainment also aired another supplement titled 13 Scarier Movie Moments in October 2009.
