    2. Trainspotting (1996)

    Miramax Films

    Submitted by April Jones, Facebook

    3. The Exorcist (1973)

    Warner Bros.

    "In The Exorcist, when she crab-walks down the stairs. I still can’t watch that part."

    4. The Descent (2005)


    "First of all, the whole movie made me claustrophobic, even while watching it in a wide-open room, but when the camera pans across the faces of all the girls and that creature is just standing behind one of them. NOPE!"

    5. Hannibal (2001)

    Universal Pictures

    "The brain scene in Hannibal. I can handle most things in far-out movies, but for some reason I can't stand brain stuff."

    Submitted by Ginger Lee Thomason, Facebook

    6. Misery (1990)

    Columbia Pictures

    Submitted by jnixie83

    7. It Follows (2014)

    Dimension Films

    "The tall man chase scene in It Follows. Describing it sounds so silly because it was just a tall-ass guy walking, but I nearly shat myself when I saw it."

    Submitted by Malia Carter, Facebook

    8. Jaws (1975)

    Universal Pictures

    "When I was young I made the mistake of watching Jaws. In one scene they dive near a seemingly abandoned boat and notice a hole in the side of it. When they get close, a head missing an eye pops out. I didn't go swimming in our above-ground pool that whole year because I was scared of sharks hiding in the shadows."

    Submitted by Frank Easton, Facebook

    9. Signs (2002)

    Walt Disney Studios

    "The part in Signs where the alien walks out during a birthday party. I couldn’t rewatch that movie until I was 25."

    10. The Road (2011)

    The Weinstein Company

    "The scene in The Road where Viggo and his son are trapped in the cannibals' house and they find the cellar with all the trapped people. It frightened the shit out of me, made me depressed for a week, and made me hope an apocalypse does not happen for a long, long, long, long time."

    Submitted by Niall Hassett, Facebook

    11. The Shining (1980)

    Warner Bros.

    "The Shining is one of my all-time favorite movies, but the scene with the old lady in the tub is the most uncomfortable and unsettling thing I’ve ever seen. I couldn’t watch the whole thing until about the third time I’d seen it. I love a good scare, but that was just disturbing."

    12. Cabin Fever (2001)

    Lions Gate Films

    Submitted by Johanny M Mejia, Facebook

    13. Marathon Man (1976)

    Paramount Pictures

    "The dental chair scene in Marathon Man where the former Nazi played by Sir Laurence Olivier tortures Dustin Hoffman by doing… I can't even write about it without getting nauseated. Noped me all to pieces."

    Submitted by Shirley Hand, Facebook

    14. Oldboy (2003)

    Tartan Films

    "There were so many intense moments in Oldboy that made me cringe, but for some reason the scene where the main actor eats a live octopus with all the gluttony and savagery of a starving man, that fucked me the fuck up."

    Submitted by Love Raney, Facebook

    15. The Wicker Man (1973)

    British Lion Films

    "The original Wicker Man is the only film that really got me. Those screams when they burnt him alive haunted me for weeks."

    Submitted by Eleanor Keeler, Facebook

    16. The Mummy (1999)

    Universal Pictures

    "The part at the beginning of The Mummy when the scarabs get under that guy’s skin and eat him. I was traumatised and refused to watch the rest of the movie until years later."

    Submitted by jessicaw101

    17. Audition (1999)


    "Audition has some really disturbing scenes throughout and one in particular is when the main woman has a person that she's captured eat vomit from a dog bowl."

    18. Pan's Labyrinth (2006)


    "When the girl decides to eat the food from the monster's table DESPITE THE WARNING, and then he gets up and puts the eyeballs in his hand-slits.

    I could not move I was so horrified."

    Submitted by Marin Christiana Picklebottom, Facebook

    20th Century Fox

    "There was a moment not long after he began to transform when he was standing in front of a mirror fiddling with his finger and suddenly a big piece came squirting off. I was maybe 10 when I saw it, and I immediately realized that I was in over my head. I turned off the movie right then, and I still won't go back and watch it."

    Submitted by Paula Casill, Facebook

    20. The Blair Witch Project (1999)

    Submitted by rynneer

    22. Eden Lake (2008)

    The Weinstein Company

    Submitted by Claire Finlayson, Facebook

    23. Antichrist (2009)

    IFC Films

    Submitted by Connie Flora Chapman, Facebook

    24. Insidious (2011)


    "Fucking Insidious with that damn red demon that pops up behind the guy while they are in the dining room. First time I watched the movie, I was alone in the house and was eating a bowl of soup. When that damn thing popped up, I screamed and my bowl of soup nearly went flying."

    Submitted by Jacki Demchak, Facebook

    25. Mulholland Drive (2001)

    Submitted by Karoline Häggquist, Facebook

    26. Requiem for a Dream (2000)

    Artisan Entertainment

    Submitted by jmc289

    29. Martyrs (2008)

    United Film Distribution Company

    "THAT ENDING. It may not freak me the eff out to the same degree it did when I first saw it – and the 10 or so times after – but there’s something about the final 30 seconds of Angela/Peter in full psycho mode that disturbed me so much back in the day."

    Submitted by Jasmin Bear, Facebook

    33. 127 Hours (2010)

    Warner Bros. Pictures
