It's impossible, even for the best scariest moment in the world, to lull you in with a false sense of ease in a few-seconds long clip called "Good scare from _____!" If you're talking about the part in Exorcist III I think you are, it's a genuinely good jump in the movie. On Youtube? Unless the video title is a trick itself, there is no such thing.
    Naturally. The clips just facilitate description. Could you think of a better way to do that within the context of this thread?

    That exact moment was when I said to myself, and to the friend I was watching it with: "Screw this. I am not watching the rest of this movie."

    No horror movies for me -- no sir. I just can't do it. "The Sixth Sense" was probably the scariest movie I ever sat through -- I was probably about ten years old, and someone had told my parents that it was a good movie for kids(!!?!?), so the three of us watched it together. Not gonna lie: once we got to the "Locked in the Dungeon" scene, I was outright bawling. I still remember my parents pausing it and asking if I was okay and whether I wanted to stop watching it. (I didn't! I wanted to finish what I started. I guess it was worth it?)

    Also, the scene in "I Am Legend" that's only lit by flashlight was freaking terrifying -- as was the scene where he sees his mannequin friend sitting out in the open, waiting for him in the middle of a trap. Definitely quite a bit of nervous laughter in the theater in both scenes (mostly from me ).

    I'd had the pleasure of watching the Japanese one, which is not as big on scares, but more unsettling due to the severe creepiness factor, so I had my eyes blissfully closed during the worst scenes. Strangely, I didn't mind Samara coming out of the TV so much. I think the special video effects running over her were distracting. In the Japanese one, she's just straight up a dead girl with long dark hair and broken fingers/fingernails crawling out of the screen. You NEVER see her face, which is the most horrifying part--oh, and Sadako is TALL in the Japanese one... I always think I can dropkick Samara if need be, but Sadako could tear me in half with her bare hands...

    ... another movie that came out about the same time was The Grudge remake with Sarah Michelle Gellar. Some really creepy moments there too, just really awful ones. (The little boy ghost hissing; the female ghost coming out of the dark and from under the covers; the female ghost slithering down the steps... ugh.) And of course I was watching it after midnight by myself in a pitch-black room.
    I had my eyes firmly closed and ears firmly covered for this one too. There's probably no point in me watching scary movies, now that I think about it.

    Otherwise, the first time I watched The Mummy (yeah, be quiet), I just about had a heart attack in the scene where the female lead first encounters the mummy in the underground tomb and he slowly walks toward her.

    This had to be the most gratifying moment of the Scary Movie franchise.

    Lol, yes. I am eternally grateful to the Scary Movies for descarifying some of those horror movies.

    One of the only horror films I've seen happens to be one of the biggies apparently, it's an 80s film called "Maniac". I had friends who were really into horror and this was supposed to be one of the freakiest film of it's genre, so they rented it. Ugh. Ugly, ugly film, the entire movie was terrifying.

    Eh, Exorcist 3 isn't actually bad. It's penned by the guy who wrote the original novel (and possibly screenplay). Brad Douriff, who voices Chucky, played Wormtail in LOTR, and was nominated for best supporting actor for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (he was the suicidal Billy) is in it and does a good job.

    No, of course not. But I'd just like to note it's unfair to poo-poo a moment when all the context you have is a very short clip.
