SceneItAll Tournament: Round 1, Heat 102

The rules:

In Round 1, I'm going to put up three randomly selected scenes from the nomination thread.

You'll vote for your ONE favorite scene among the three. The key here is FAVORITE. We're not talking about the 'best' or 'most powerful' or 'most meaningful'. We're talking about the scene that you most enjoy watching, however you define that.

The winners will move on. I'll also take the 10 highest-scoring second-place scenes and they'll advance as wild cards.

Some of our nominations did not include clips. This will be noted. If you find a clip, please post it and let me know so I can update it if it moves on.

Witch actually seems like one of the rare horror movies that would get your #1 RainMan... its not the least bit gory, the terror is in the suspense as these kids go from somewhat lost, to confused, to scared to death and finally to TRAPPED.

This is a CLASSIC horror flic IMO, right up there with The Shining, its easy to get queasy from Saw-type movies... but when a movie can induce fear simply from circumstances of the characters and build tension with only subtle cues and minimal blood?

THATS a good horror movie.

I think it came out after the nomination process which is a shame. That flick could probably contribute three or four deep-runners.

Nyet. Apologies from the Kommissar of the Bureau of Movie Scene Tournaments.

I don't like stress, though. I agree that it would rank above gory movies, but it still seems like it wouldn't be a pleasant viewing experience.

I remember seeing "The Hills Have Eyes" one Halloween a few years back. It was kind of gory, but at the same time it was pretty engaging from a pure freak show perspective.

I've read different things that suggest scary movie "stress" is actually kinda good for you, cathartic... in that you get to experience the sensation of fear while knowing that its not real/a legit danger to you.

If you even have one, what IS your favorite horror movie?

Beetlejuice probably doesn't count, does it?

I vaguely remember that there may be one or two that I'm okay with, but offhand I can't think of one that I enjoy. The genre holds no interest for me.

Okay, the most annoying scene ever, er, Anchorman, moves on.
