Spooky season is here, so it’s time to take out those carving knives and get to work on this year’s jack o’ lanterns. That terrifying costume collecting dust in your attic will finally see the light of day. You even finally have an excuse to eat too much of that Halloween candy that’s been on store shelves since August. But the best part about the spooky season is watching the scariest horror movies that keep you up at night.
Some of the scariest scenes stick with us because they’re just creepy overall. Some are considered to be the scariest because of the gore. And others still are simply the scariest because they’re just iconic. So it’s time to turn off the lights, put on your favorite horror movie, and sit on the edge of your seat as we remember the scariest movie scenes of all time here.
The Shining: Corpse In The Bathtub
One of the scariest horror movies of all time is The Shining, where the main character Jack watches a mansion during wintertime with his family. While the entire movie is a slow burn, the woman in the bathtub is arguably the most terrifying scene of them all. In room 237, you see a scene with a beautiful naked woman bathing in a bathtub. Jack’s original look of infatuation quickly turns to one of horror and despair once he realizes it’s not a beautiful woman, but a decaying corpse. Staff member Matt Melis from Consequence said it’s the “Bathtub lady for me. No, I don’t want to rewatch it.” Very few people want to watch that bathtub scene again (via Consequence).
