The 100 Scariest Movie Moments (Part I)

Bravo's 100 Scariest Movie Moments Part I

In 2004, Bravo premiered their four-part countdown of the 100 Scariest Movie Moments. Since then, it’s been a tradition to watch the series every year in the run-up to Halloween, since it’s like all the best parts of one hundred movies all rolled up into one. Since tomorrow is the first day of October, I thought we could get in the mood for Halloween with scary moments 100 – 76!  I’ve included the list below – how many have you seen, darlings?

    • You might have seen one of the later specials! It seems like they either replay them or have new ones around Halloween every year. Either way, it always seems like another welcome sign that Halloween is around the corner!

  1. I love that they put “Signs” on. A lot of people are critical of that one, but I really enjoyed it. And I liked the subplot about faith and something beyond. SPOILER ALERT! The fact that how many years earlier, his dying wife gave him the clue to save themselves, thereby restoring his faith in something bigger gave it an element of story beyond just a horror.

    • That’s one of things I’ve always enjoyed about this special. Scary can be so subjective – I love that they didn’t try to constrain it to just pure horror movies, or widely-accepted-as-scary films.

  2. Thanks for posting! I wish a network would air this again. But, with the Youtube channel update to the wii, I have it up there now. So thank you for posting the link!
