What Is The Scariest Scene That Comes Out Of Nowhere In A Non-Horror Film?

"Just enjoying a calm, non-horror film...OH MY GOODNESS." —Me, watching these scenes.

You know the feeling. You're enjoying a movie you specifically picked because it's not going to give you nightmares, and then — out of nowhere — there's an INCREDIBLY DISTURBING SCENE.

Fox Searchlight Pictures

So, with that in mind, what is the most disturbing scene to come out of nowhere in a non-horror movie?

Paramount Pictures

Perhaps your pick is when the enemies' FACES LITERALLY MELT OFF AND EXPLODE in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Paramount Pictures

Or maybe your pick is from The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, when the orcs encroaching on Minas Tirith begin LITERALLY SLINGING THE HEADS OF THE DEAD GONDORIAN SOLDIERS BACK AT THEIR COMRADES.

New Line Cinema

Lots of head stuff, apparently!

Heck, maybe it's something from a movie meant for children, like the Large Marge sequence from Pee-wee's Big Adventure that traumatized you when you thoroughly did not sign up to be traumatized.

Warner Bros.
