Tell Us About The Most Beautifully Breathtaking Shot You've Ever Seen In A Horror Movie

Take my breath away!

There's absolutely nothing better than watching a movie and being blown away by its showpiece — like, when you see that one shot that is so perfect looking, it feels like it belongs in a museum.

And a lot of those picture-perfect moments come straight from the scariest movies, so which single shot from a horror movie takes your breath away?

Or maybe you've never seen a shot convey such anxiety, chaos, and satisfaction as well as this Midsommar one does.

Or maybe the contrast between Laurie Strode's face and Michael Myers' mask in Halloween is just absolutely breathtaking, and you've never been so entranced by a horror movie since.
