Storyline

Film-makers, performers, genre authorities and selected high-profile fans count down the most chilling moments in cinematic history. Not just from horror films, but from such thrillers as Wait Until Dark (1967) and Jaws (1975) and such science-fiction films as The Terminator (1984) and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956). This entertaining and authoritative special, originally telecast for 5 nights leading up to Halloween 2004, has gone beyond seasonal programming to become one of the Bravo cable network's most popular and oft-encored specials.

A well-assembled list
19 April 2005 | by MiPuebloSee all my reviews

The 100 Scariest Movie Moments is a well-assembled list of the classic moments in horror cinema. It seems that the scary moments are ranked according to how shocking they were when they were first released in theaters. When I saw the number one moment I went "Huh?!" but then I remembered how shocking it was when it came out, and, bingo. There's your scariest movie moment of all time! Features interviews with some of the modern 'masters' of horror (Wes Craven, Stephen King, John Carpenter, George Ramero), stars of their films, and the critics who were scared by them. Though some of the interviews are rather bland, others give some interesting insight on the films in the countdown.
