10 Most Haunting Movie Moments for Halloween

Viewers Can't Shake Images from 'The Ring,' 'Hannibal' and 'The Exorcist'

Selected by movie lovers in a BLOCKBUSTER survey.

1. "The Ring" Samara crawls out of the television
2. "Hannibal" Hannibal Lecter dines on Ray Liotta's brain.
3. "The Exorcist" Regan's upside down spider walk down the stairs
4. "Blair Witch Project" The final chase through the abandoned house
5. "Alien" The birth of the alien baby out of John Hurt's chest
6. "The Exorcist" Regan's head spinning around backwards
7. "A Nightmare on Elm Street" An invisible Freddy Krueger drags his victim across the ceiling
8. "Poltergeist" Carol Anne announces "They're here!"
9. "The Shining" Danny encounters the murdered twins
10. "Seven" The "Sloth" corpse rises up

Some horror movie images seem to jump off the screen more than others, and movie fans say this is terrifyingly true of "The Ring," in which the dead Samara crawls out of the television. Participants in a Halloween survey by BLOCKBUSTER (R) said this movie moment haunts them more than any other, although scenes from "Hannibal," "The Exorcist" and "The Blair Witch Project" come close behind.

Close to 60 percent of those surveyed reported being unable to get a scary image out of their mind after watching a horror film. It's easy to see why, with a feast of frightening films to see that include Hannibal Lecter dining on Ray Liotta's brains while he's still alive in "Hannibal."

Other scary scenes that viewers can't shake include the upside down spider walk by the possessed Regan in "The Exorcist," the frantic chase through the abandoned house in "Blair Witch Project" and the birth of the alien baby out of John Hurt's chest in "Alien."
