    Holy shit! I still can't finish that movie!

    #12 fuck that clown

    • AssClown

      Fuck you too!

      • MattyDeuce

        Hey buddy, hope you're doing ok this time of year especially…How are you holding up?

    • Toba

      Scary Movie 2 helped me cope with this.

      • crazydog

        The clown scene in scary movie is hilarious

    • Frank M

      I saw that clown is sitting in it's rocking chair when I ate dinner at the Planet Hollywood in Vegas. I literally kept my eyes on that damn puppet throughout my entire dinner just to make sure that it didn't escape & try to kill me.

    • SocialLubricant

      That fucking thing was a major contributor to the fear of clowns I had when I was younger. I'm in my mid 30s now and, while I can't say I still have a fear of clowns, if I have a choice between standing in a room with a clown and one without a clown, I'll go with the clown-free room.

      • WindyCityKid13

        yeah, and fuck IT too

        • TheAndychrist


  • LeO

    Some scary shit.

  • Sancho

    Creepy as fuuu….

  • Jawbone

    #15 …..Damn. That's kind of screwed up.

    • help

      Well now you know that's real terror in her eyes!!

    • bunedoggle

      By far the scariest part of the movie for me. Now it's even worse.

    • Yoselahonda

      What? Were they importing from Cambodia at the time? WTF?!

  • Chris

    That bathroom scene where dude rips up his face with all the maggots bothered me for years! Great movies

  • Coop

    Awesome post !!

  • mikeymike75

    Yeah, nope!

  • Ukulelemike

    Don't think I believe that last one.

    • aaa

      I'd tell myself that too, but it's true.

      • Shockteck

        And the only way she would do it is if Spielberg was in the pool with her during the shots. He is just off camera with her.

        • https://www.facebook.com/DannoRules Danno Maurer

          Didn't know you could buy those. Shut up and take my money.

          • Zac

            It's not that way anymore. You can still buy real ones but they cost like 10 times what a plastic one cost now.

  • mipo2010

    She was the scariest part of the movie #9

  • Needlegun13

    #7 That amazes me – I always wondered how they did that. I can't believe they put it together so quickly. That shot is SUPER short.

    • m.c.

      some of the best effects aren't effects at all. suck it disney.

      • Needlegun13

        Right on!! They don’t make movies like Poltergeist anymore, woe to us all.

      • Andy Valentine

        Remember how that idea was relived in The Sixth Sense when the mother goes out of the kitchen for a matter of seconds, only to return and all the cupboard doors are opened.
        Shit like that still weirds me out.

      • Chooch

        Apparently you haven't seen Spielberg's last few outings.

    • MonkeyMadness

      I'm sure they practiced it a few times before filming it. 😉

      • eightysecond

        different chairs, they just removed the ones that were there first, and then put on a set that had been glued together like that.

  • durr

    #9 genuine, eh? you keep using that word…

    • Slo

      I stopped reading after that "fact"

      • Guest

        All humans have this ability. Only some are able to access it…

        • Boomer Sooner

          You think she foresaw the end of her film career after this movie?

        • Tim

          Guys, I think she's right.

          Somehow I knew that this comment would be thumbed down before I even looked.

        • Leo

          Like you not having access to your brain?

        • Egon

          You mean intuition?

    • Donkey Punch
  • Dan

    And the guy who killed Dunne spent less than 3 years in jail??!!

  • robsterling

    Scared the Beejebus out of me the first time I saw the movie.

    • MonkeyMadness

      That was the scariest scene in that movie for me.

  • Sean

    On #5, the ET house was in Sunland in the NE San Fernando Valley

  • WileEOne

    Went into the movie theater a tough 16 year old guy with his friends…. came out a scared shitless, blubbering little girl…

  • MonkeyMadness

    #4 That's bullshit, that house got sucked into a big black hole. I saw it!

  • MonokuroBoo

    I have yet to be able to watch the whole movie. I get too scared. #15 isn't helping with that.

  • PeyKonzloas
  • dman37

    don't forget the creepiest preacher ever. I thought he was a special effect.

    • ChrisDG74

      He wasn't in the first one.

    • pudge

      god is in his hollllllyyyy tempel…not till the third

      • eightysecond


      • ChrisDG74

        He died during filming on 2. Someone else played the preacher in 3.

  • saltygary

    The mom was a total milf.

    • Red

      True that.

    • Verbal_Kint
