21 Movie Scenes That Were Way More Goosebump Inducing Than We Expected Them To Be

Get ready for the goosebumps.

We recently asked members of BuzzFeed Community to tell us who which movie scenes gave them chills. Here's what they said.

1. When Freddie Mercury found out he had AIDs in Bohemian Rhapsody.

20th Century Fox

"I know it's a small part but 'Who Wants To Live Forever' playing in the background just makes this already sad scene even sadder."


2. When Elsa sang "Show Yourself" in Frozen II.

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

"Swear to god, I did not expect I would get that emotional at a scene in that movie! Especially when she saw her mother and sang the lyrics 'I am found' and 'you are the one you've been waiting for all of my life'. That just freaking hit me man! Chills every time!" —fallon3720


3. When John Coffey was wrongly executed in The Green Mile.

Warner Bros.

"He's an innocent man taking his last walk to the electric chair."


"And he doesn't want them to put the hood on because he is afraid of the dark."


4. When the rebels in District 5 sang "The Hanging Tree" while the Hydroplant was destroyed in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.


"James Newton Howard's score along with the choir singing and the cinematography is so powerful – it left me speechless."


5. When Mercutio died in Romeo + Juliet.

20th Century Fox

"His death was so dramatic and the acting was so raw and amazing. Every time I watch the movie that scene gets me. A cinematic masterpiece."



6. When Miguel sang "Remember Me" to Mama Coco at the end of Coco.

7. When Bagheera wouldn't let Mowgli fight with the wolves in The Jungle Book.

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

"Mowgli tries to join the fight against Shere Khan, only to be stopped by Bagheera. Mowgli says he wants to fight alongside the wolves and Bagheera says, 'You can’t fight him like a wolf; you’re not a wolf. Fight him like a man.' This is after Bagheera has spent the whole movie discouraging Mowgli from acting like a human – it's the moment that he completely accepts him for who he is."



8. When the women came to the rescue in Avengers: Endgame.

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

"As soon as all the women heroes came together in Endgame I went mad and I almost jumped out of my seat. Female empowerment!"


9. When Miles took the leap of faith and became Spiderman in Into The Spiderverse.

Sony Pictures Releasing

"It is extremely well done and I get goosebumps every time. And it's my six-year-old's favourite movie, so I watch it A LOT."


10. When Jo broke down in Little Women.

Sony Pictures Releasing

"Jo March is talking about how women have minds and souls and ambition and how women are fit for more than love. But then she breaks down and says, 'but, I am so lonely.'"



11. When Captain America held Mjolnir in Avengers: Endgame.

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

"When it happened the entire audience FREAKED OUT. I saw it the day after it came out so the theatre was PACKED. I had chills big time. I was also sobbing uncontrollably, it was very emotional."


12. When the crowd bowed to Mulan after she defeated Shan Yu.

Buena Vista Pictures

"The Emperor says ‘you have saved us all’, then she turns around to see the whole crowd bowing to her. Makes me tear up just thinking about it."



13. When Katherine gave a speech about racism in Hidden Figures.

20th Century Fox

"Gives me chills and tears every time because someone finally said what needed to be said."


14. When Vada saw Thomas J's casket in My Girl.

17. When Dr Malcolm realised he'd died in The Sixth Sense.

"I just find it sad that when that fact comes out, it's all over for him. The reality that he'll never see his wife again, and never do the job he loves again. It's like his life is over for a second time."



18. When Effie belted out "And I'm Telling You" in Dream Girls.

DreamWorks Pictures / Paramount Pictures

21. When almost everyone disintegrated in Avengers: Infinity War.

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

"Not only did this scene give me chills, but caused me to full-on tremble, shake, and cry in my seat. The lack of music combined with the slight sound of everyone turning to dust was so chilling. Everyone’s acting was also so spot on. I’ll never forget the experience of watching that in theatres."
