I was looking at some other forum that was stupid and whose name I can't even remember. Someone had started a thread about creepiest scenes in a movie and people kept getting that mixed up with scenes that made them cringe (like the torture scenes in Casino
). Their inability to separate the two was part of what made that forum stupid.
Anyway, both things are interesting.
What scenes do you find creepiest?
What scenes do you find most cringeworthy?
I think in terms of creepiness, two stand out bigtime for me: the baby cranking its head around in Trainspotting
, and the Donald Sutherland scene in Invasion of the Bodysnatchers
I don't cringe a lot. I found the fire extinguisher part in Irreversible
hard to watch (but not the extended anal rape scene, for whatever reason).
There were parts of Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer
that made me cringe. I didn't like the puppy-in-pillowcase scene in Suicide Circle.
Or the curb scene in American History X.
What about you?
