One of Sinister‘s many strengths is its use of unsettling imagery. There are so many quick moments in the film that stick really with you. These moments are so deceptively simple that, on paper, they may not read as being incredibly striking. But their effect on the screen is undeniable. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you see the movie, some of the stuff in it is unshakeable!
In sponsored honor of these terrifying and unsettling moments, I’ve decided to comb through my internal horror library in search of some of horror’s most unsettling moments. By no means is this list comprehensive, but I wanted it to be a good starting point to get you guys to share your favorite moments!
Head inside to check it out!
Danny Torrance traverses the Overlook’s floor plan on his big wheel – the hardwood vs. carpet sound effects building the suspense to an almost enraging level – until he happens upon The Twins. Such a simple image, yet it’s been creeping audiences out for almost 30 years.
THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE
Unsettling Moment? That metal door slamming shut after Leatherface smashes that guy over the head. His appearance is so sudden, the character’s fall so quick – and that slam is so final. It only takes a few seconds, but it completely rocks you.
George Bennings, overtaken and replicated by The Thing, slowly trying to escape into the snowy night. The look he gives the crew when they finally catch up to him ready to burn him alive – that vacant evil roar with that raised crab-claw hand – well, it sticks with you.
