31 scary movie moments – 15) Flies attack Father Delaney in The Amityville Horror (1979)

One of the most infamous haunted houses, 112 Ocean Avenue, Amityville, has many terrors inside in this classic 1979 horror. There’s a secret spooky room in the basement, red eyes peeking through a window, blood seeping out of the walls and windows slamming down on their own. One of the scariest scenes is when Father Delaney (Rod Steiger) visits to bless the house and is swarmed by some horrible flies. And then that voice from hell tells him to ‘GETTTTT OUTTTTTTTT’. Yikes.


31 scary movie moments – 14) Hell in Event Horizon (1997)

Thanks to Tom Kay and Laurie Thorpe for this suggestion – the whole of Event Horizon is messed up and once again reiterates ¬†why you shouldn’t go on rescue missions for missing spaceships. NOT A GOOD MOVE.

Captain Miller (Laurence Fishburne) and his unlucky crew set off to find missing ship Event Horizon which is sending a distress signal, having disappeared on its maiden voyage seven years earlier. When they find the ship, the crew board and find evidence of a massacre…and they start to have haunting hallucinations which all link to their own fears and experiences. They then find a video log which shows the Event Horizon crew doing really bad things to each other, sealing their fate. Very bad things indeed. They have literally gone to hell.
