Moments that make you go “OOOOOOOOHHHHH”.

Sure, these can be caused by terror. Maybe a well timed jump scare. More often than not though, these moments are triggered by pure shock value. These moments can often be polarizing. What one sees as excellence – others may see as trash. I’ll let you guys weigh in on trash vs excellence with these 5 shocking moments in modern horror history.

WARNING: Slight spoilers may lie ahead.

1. Inside – The Bathroom Exit

Alysson has been trapped in the bathroom for what feels like an eternity. The good news is that the police have arrived. The bad news is…this happens:

2. Antichrist – The …. Arousal

Willem Defoe goes through a series of events that no man should ever endure. Hell – no man should ever be subjected to this scene in particular for that matter. Those who have seen the film get it. Those who haven’t…Think nice and hard before you do.

3. Proxy – The Beating

It’s rare that I find myself surprised that something made its way onto film. Antichrist may fall into that category…but the opening scene of Proxy is absolutely brutal. Something that some films may get away with by masking it as a nightmare sequence. Nope. Not only does Proxy let you know its real… they show you the aftermath.

4. Contracted – The Ooey Gooey Love Scene

Everyone needs love. Especially in times of great stress – and if you’re the poor S.O.B. that’s been delegated to the Friend Zone by your special lady, then you’d be foolish not to take advantage of the situation when it arises. Right? Yeah. Tell that to Riley.

Seriously though, there is all kinds of shit in the flick that could have made the list.

5. A Serbian Film – The Unveiling

People have most certainly formed their opinions of A Serbian Film by now. It’s not exactly the type of movie that you recommend to someone, but if shock value is what you seek – you’ll find it there. As with Contracted, there are several moments that could have made the list. Of them all – I feel as if the grand finale makes the cut. The realization of what Milos has done….and who he has done it to.

There you have it. Do you have something that sticks out in your mind when you think of shocking modern horror moments? If so – sound off in the comments. Gross us out!
