What Is The Best Executed "Jump Scare" In All Of Movie History?

Movie theaters should come equipped with seat belts.

We are all familiar with the term "jump scare", right?

In a lot of recent horror films, they rely on this tactic to get viewers scared, which kind of takes the fun out of them all together.

But that's not to say there isn't an ~art~ to the perfect jump scare, which many movies (horror and non-horror alike) have managed to achieve.

This led me to wonder: What is the best executed jump scare in all of movie history?

Is it the grave scene in the original Carrie?

Or maybe it's the terrifying clap sequence from The Conjuring?

Or MAYBE it's not even in a horror movie at all and it's that freakin' scene from The Fellowship of the Ring where Bilbo loses it.

Anyway, tell us which movie moment always gets you to jump out of your seat below for a chance to be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post or video!
