Last week we reflected on Bravo’s “100 Scariest Movie Moments” special, which originally aired on the network back in 2004. The multi-part special counted down the scariest movie scenes up to that point in time, and the most common response we received on the article went a little something like this: “How cool would it be if they did an updated version of this today?!”
We agree. That’d be really awesome. It’s been over a decade since that comprehensive list of scary scenes was put together, and needless to say, the past 10+ years have given us no shortage of horror movies that have imparted nightmares. But what are the scariest scenes of the past decade? Which moments would you include on an updated list, if Bravo asked for your help?
That’s the discussion we’d like to have today, and I figured I’d kick things off with my own little list of recent movie scenes that scared the daylights out of me. As a 30-year-old, jaded viewer who’s been watching horror movies his whole life, it’s not very easy to scare me these days, so the following films have my eternal respect for making me question sleeping with the lights off…
THE STRANGERS (2008)
IT FOLLOWS (2014)
THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN (2014)
THE CONJURING 2 (2016)
Which recent moments scared YOU?
