Only A Few Scenes of IAatRotLA Scared Me

I was going on 6 when I saw "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark" in 1981, and there were a few scenes that freaked me out, such as, any of the scenes with snakes -- I eventually got over my fear of snakes -- any of the skeleton scenes, especially the one after the crypt, and of course the ending when all the Nazi's were getting killed and the guy's face started to melt.

The scene where he kills the innocent shoe cartoon in that vat of chemicals still bothers me.

I don't think a movie has to have supernatural elements to be a horror movie. Look at "Jaws," "Silence of the Lambs," or "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer." They might not be considered straight up horror films, but they definitely are.

Scariest Non-Horror Movie Moment - Those troll things in Willow, when it turns into that ball of ick and then sprouts heads, turning into that dragonyeah that freaked out little 7 year old me.

Moonwalker

The scene where Jackson's shot turns into a robot and later a ship used to scare me to death as a kid.
Also, I second Judge Doom, that also freaked me out when I was young.

Akira

I know it's animated, but the final scene of Akira is one of the most horrifying I've ever seen. I somehow happened upon that scene one day when I was channel surfing in the days of my youth, and subsequently had nightmares about it for weeks. I decided to watch the whole movie to contextualize that scene a few years ago, and I will never watch it again.

Ditto Pee Wee. Shit messed me up as a little kid.

But I'd also add the boat ride in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. Still damn scary today and when I was a youngster I'd make any excuse to leave the room or fast forward when that scene came up.
