WARNING: This post contains graphic imagery!

Listen, the classic horror movie scares are classic for a reason. Who among us hasn't been freaked out to go in the ocean because of the opening of Jaws, or checked under our beds because of ~that scene~ in Friday the 13th?

Universal Pictures

But there are for sure some overlooked scary scenes that are EQUALLY terrifying — both in content and how underrated they are.

Amazon Studios

So — with that in mind — what is the scariest horror movie scene that gets absolutely zero credit?

Or perhaps it's a scary scene from a movie that, frankly, just not enough people have seen — like the opening scene in Trick 'r Treat — that turned you off of Halloween decorations for a while.
