<![CDATA[Ranker: Recent Film Lists]]> http://www.ranker.com/list-of//film http://www.ranker.com/img/skin2/logo.gif Most Viewed Lists on Ranker http://www.ranker.com/list-of//film <![CDATA[Funny Full Names of Nefarious Villains]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/full-villain-names/jacob-shelton
Haven’t you ever wondered about the full names of villains? No one is actually named “Leatherface” or “Ultron.” That’s why we’re peeling back the curtain and taking a look at real villain names. Nothing's more exciting in a new film or television show than the promise of a truly evil villain. Someone that you feel like could slither their way off of the screen and hide in your bedroom until you're fast asleep; someone that makes you want to root for the good guy. Baddies like that only come around every so often, and when they do they great names to match their abhorrent personalities. Characters like Leatherface, Pennywise the Clown, and Ultron aren’t just cool, they inform us of who we’ll be dealing with for the duration of the film.

If you’re a villain and you want to strike fear in the heart of your victims, you’ve got to pick a name that not only scares the heebie jeebies out of everyone, but that sums up your whole deal. Some villainous names are way too vague, and they leave the viewer wanting more. Well that's why this list digs around the archives and comes up with the real names of some of the most famous villains in history.

Vote up the best full names of the most vile villains, and you think that somebody read your favorite bad guy’s birth certificate wrong, drop some knowledge in the comments.

<![CDATA[22 JJ Abrams Universe Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/jj-abrams-easter-eggs/jacob-shelton
As a director, writer, and producer, JJ Abrams packs his films with Easter eggs. Not only has he taken science fiction and fantasy to the forefront of American culture, but he’s also revived franchises like Star Wars and Star Trek that were long thought to be dead. He’s also really good at putting references in his movies. One could even argue he build stories around the secrets he plans to drop into them.

This list is all about the coolest JJ Abrams Easter eggs. Some of these JJ Abrams universe Easter eggs are pretty easy to spot, but some of them are definitely going to make you want to pull out your magnifying glass and take a closer look at his oeuvre.

One of the coolest things about the Easter eggs in Abrams’s films is that he’s not just throwing them out there willy-nilly. For instance, in Super 8 characters don’t walk around saying, “I really love the number 47 and how it pertains to the concept of scientific proofs, did you know they use the number 47 in Star Trek a lot?” That would be awful. Each hidden reference in JJ Abrams movies is meticulously placed to give fans something to search for on repeat viewings - the references don’t take away from the film, they enhance it. After you finish reading about all of Abrams’ eggs, take to the comments and let us know which hidden references were your favorites.
22 JJ Abrams Universe Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed,

Too Sweet to Be Sour, Too Nice to Be Mean
One of the X-Wing pilots in The Force Awakens serves as an Easter egg for fans of both Beastie Boys and Lost. The pilot in question is named "Ello Asty," an obvious reference to the album Hello Nasty, and when spelled out his name is actually EL O aS Ty.

"It is for me. But I’d be lying if I said I came up with that name," Abrams told Yahoo. "It was suggested to me from the creature department. And I loved it for that reason, because it referenced the album, and also because it spells out Lost. And so both of those felt like, they were funny reasons to approve that name."
The Hosnian System Is Named After a Big Influence
In The Force Awakens, The First Order explodes a bunch of planets that are located in the Hosnian System which might sound like a bunch of hokum, but it's actually a reference to beloved film professor Jim Hosney, who taught for years at the Crossroads School for Arts & Science.

47, the Most Mysterious Number
Who knows why, but this number is near and dear to Abrams's heart. It's featured prominently in Alias, The Case (the movie within the movie in Super 8), and Fringe
Dear H. Kelvin
The word "Kelvin" is referenced in just about every JJ Abrams property that's ever been produced. Why? Abrams' grandfather was named Harry Kelvin, and he was the man that gave Abrams his first camera. In The Force Awakens, storm troopers burn Kelvin Ridge, in Star Trek, Kirk is born on the USS Kelvin, and in Mission Impossible III, Ethan Hunt receives a postcard addressed to H. Kelvin.

There are at least four or five more Kelvin references out there - think you can find them?
Wrath of the Centaurian Slug
In Star Trek, Nemo shoves a Centaurian Slug into Captain Pike's dome, which is a nice throwback to the best Star Trek movie ever, The Wrath of Khan
Operation Walking Distance
In Super 8, Abrams's love letter to the Spielbergian science fiction films of his youth, the military begins to carry out Operation Walking Distance. The name is a reference to his favorite Twilight Zone episode, which is actually kind of a version of Super 8.

Take it away JJ
! "‘Walking Distance’ is maybe the show’s best episode. It’s about a businessman. He’s almost 40, he’s got a suit, and he hates his life. He’s miserable. The stress of work is just getting him down. And his car breaks down in the middle-of-nowhere countryside. He goes to the gas station to get his car fixed and he realizes that he grew up very close to where they are. It’s walking distance. So he says, ‘I’m just going to take a walk back to the town I grew up in.’"

"He gets there and he soon realizes he’s walked back not just to where he grew up, but when he grew up. He’s back in the time when he was a kid. And it’s just this beautiful story of a guy who, as an adult, wants to go back to his young self, and tell himself to be aware of what it is to be alive, to be young, and to enjoy that. And of course, you can never go back and tell yourself that."

Tagruato Industries Spans Centuries
The offshore drilling company serves as the parent company for everything bad, and that also awoke the Cloverfield monster is alive and well in the 23rd century. At least according to Star Trek.
Daddy Abrams
Did you know that JJ puts his dad in a lot of his movies? He's most obvious as an old guy sitting at a space bar in Star Trek, but he's also in The Force Awakens as Captain Cypress. 
The Batmobile Is on the Millenium Falcon
Apparently JJ Abrams and Zack Snyder are buddies because during the production of The Force Awakens Abrams got into a Easter egg battle with the Batman v. Superman director. At one point, he even posted this video online that shows a model for the Batmobile (it looks most like the once from Christopher Nolan's films) built onto the Millennium Falcon. Cool? 
Slusho
A fictional Japanese drink that's probably close to being a slushy from 7-11, this beverage appears across worlds, timelines, and films. There are even a bunch of conspiracy theories about the fictional drink.

<![CDATA[15 Terrifying Bed-Related Scenes from Horror Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/scariest-under-the-best-scenes/christopher-shultz
Out of all the places in your house, you may be the most vulnerable in your bed. After all, it is only when we sleep that we endure the most terrifying scenarios our brains can imagine. But for the people in these movies, nightmares go above and beyond dream-like fantasy. Because it's a genre devoted to fear and anxiety, horror films often feature scenes set in the bedroom, where nightmares are brought to horrifying life.  

The scariest bed scenes usually involve some unseen or barely-glimpsed terror, be it an invisible force pressing you further into the mattress, a lightning-fast hand springing out from under the bed, or a commonplace object used in a grotesque fashion. The films on this list feature some of the best under the bed scenes (or otherwise bed-related clips) from horror movies. Sleep tight...

15 Terrifying Bed-Related Scenes from Horror Movies,

Poltergeist, Two Bed Attacks in One Scene!
The nightmare fodder of Gen-Xers and Millennials alike, this scene toward the end of Poltergeist features a creepy clown doll who wraps his arms around a boy's neck and pulls him under the bed. But that's not all! There's also an invisible entity assaulting JoBeth Williams in the master bedroom. Lesson learned: don't just move the headstones.
The Darkness, Dirty Hands
The 2016 film The Darkness features a rather intense-looking bed scene in its trailer (around the 1:55 mark). It involves a teenage girl being tormented by sticky black palm prints which, in addition to appearing out of thin air on her wall, also seem to cover her mouth and chest. Something wicked and invisible is out to get her...
Possession, Not for the Squeamish
This surreal 1981 film by the late Andrzej Zulawski features a creature of indeterminate origin who engages in sex with the main woman of the film, played by Isabelle Adjani. It is not for the squeamish, though anyone willing to avoid this picture should really strengthen their stomach, because Possession is hands-down one of the finest horror-bizarro titles of the canon.
Ju-on (The Grudge), Under the Covers
The little blue spirits from Ju-on are terrifying in and of themselves. Now, combine their inherent creepiness with this scene in which one appears under some bed covers (with the woman already in the bed), and you'll be sleeping sans-blanket for the rest of your life.
Se7en, He Got What He Deserved
The "Seven Deadly Sins" killer leads Detectives Mills and Somerset to his latest victim, Sloth. They discover what appears to be a dead and horribly emaciated man lying in a fetid bed, surrounded by pine tree air fresheners (which do nothing for the smell, by the way). But if this image weren't horrible enough, it turns out this man is, inexplicably, alive...
Paranormal Activity, All the Bed Bits
A decent chunk of Paranormal Activity revolves around freaky stuff happening in and near the bed... and not the good kind of freaky stuff. Rather, invisible or shadowy demon figures mess with the sheets, drag people out from under the covers, slam doors, and possess a woman and make her stand next to her husband all throughout the night. 
A Nightmare on Elm Street, Glen Dozes Off
You should've taken Nancy's warnings more seriously, Glen. Now look at you: sucked up into your own bed and reduced to a fountain of blood that spews out of the gaping hole. Freddy means business, and this geyser is proof. While this film about a malicious spirit that kills teenagers in their dreams features a wealth of deathly bed scenes, this one is perhaps the most iconic.
Death Bed: The Bed That Eats... Pretty Much the Entire Movie
The title says it all. It's a bed made of death (presumably) and it eats. But what does it eat? It eats YOU. Patton Oswalt has a great bit about this inexplicable '70s movie.
Friday the 13th, No One Saves This Bacon
Poor Kevin Bacon, he's just trying to relax with a little smoke in his bed after a long day of camp counseling and partying. Instead, he gets an arrow to the neck from underneath the bed. So long, Bacon. May you illegally dance to mid-'80s rock music in heaven.
Pet Semetary, Gage Plays with Jud
Creepy un-dead little blond boy hiding under the bed. Achilles's heel slash via scalpel. Mouth slash via scalpel. Creepy boy feasting on old man's neck. Creepy cat watching impassively. This scene has it all.

<![CDATA[18 of the Scariest Horror Movies About Familes]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/scariest-horror-movies-about-familes/christopher-shultz
Horror movies sometimes deal with lone individuals who are literally or figuratively isolated from society. But more often than not, narratives involve more of a group dynamic.Being alone may be terrifying, but fear of losing the people close to you is even scarier. "Family horror" films (not to be confused with "family friendly" films) are fascinating for the way they examine complicated family dynamics in one way or another.  

Countless families in horror movies have cropped up since the genre's cinematic inception. Some focus on clans that are already marred by dysfunction and murderous or otherwise nefarious ways. Others depict a more "normal" family that falls victim to outside evils, testing the strength of their bonds. Some great ones even have both.

With that in mind, these are the best horror movies with families. Vote up your favorites.


18 of the Scariest Horror Movies About Familes,

A Tale of Two Sisters
This Korean gem from 2003 mines its horror from the familial tension surrounding death, divorce, and remarriage, as well as several genuinely chilling ghost sequences. This one is not to be missed.
Hellraiser
"Come to daddy," says Kristi's Uncle Frank, in such a way that the incestuous undertones cannot be misconstrued. The dysfunction doesn't stop there: see, Frank also happens to be void of flesh when he comes on to his niece, as his restoration hasn't been completed yet. That's because Julia, the wife of Frank's brother, hasn't butchered enough men in their attic room for Frank to feast on yet. Also, since Frank first emerged from the floorboards a skeletal, bleeding mess, he and Julia have resumed their secret love affair, which started years earlier, on the day before her wedding to Frank's brother.  

Sheesh, this family needs Jerry Springer.
House of 1000 Corpses
They're inbred. They're crazy. They're sadistic. And they're all named after characters from Marx Brothers movies. All except Doctor Satan, that is, who dwells in the catacombs beneath the Firefly family's compound. This psychedelic film debut from Rob Zombie pulls very few punches.
Poltergeist
The Freeling family are quite settled in their new housing edition, a project spearheaded by father Steve and his development company. There's just one problem — their new house sits atop the still-buried remains of of an old graveyard. Turns out Steve's boss just moved the headstones, but not the bodies. As one might expect, the spirits of the dead are PISSED, and they lure innocent little Carol Anne into their ghost world. Unfortunately for the Freelings, that's only the beginning of their horrifying antics.
Psycho
Mother-son relationships don't get much more twisted than the one between Norman Bates and his dear, deceased mummy (pun intended). The backstory behind Bates's rising psychopathy is the stuff of Freud's nightmares, and a classic from the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock.
The Hills Have Eyes
The Hills Have Eyes features two families: the ostensibly normal, all-American Carters, and the band of cannibalistic freaks who stalk, torment and kill them. This early schlock-fest from Wes Craven is only for the strongest of stomachs.
The Orphanage
This atmospheric chiller from producer Guillermo del Toro and director J.A. Bayona subverts the "adopted child is evil" horror trope by casting a sympathetic light on orphaned children, whether or not they happen to be ghosts. Lesson learned: it is possible to choose your own family.
The Shining
Traditional family dynamics go on the slab in Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of Stephen King's novel. While the original author depicted a fairly stable family that falls victim to the collective evil of the Overlook Hotel (a symbol for patriarch Jack's alcoholism), Kubrick suggests it was the Torrance family themselves, namely unstable Jack (as portrayed by Jack Nicholson), who brought some of the evil into the hotel.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2
Director Tobe Hooper established the Sawyer clan back in 1974 with the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre. More than ten years later, Hooper returned to his roots and, in doing so, taught us more about his infamous Texas cannibal family. In TCM2, audiences witness the true reach of the Sawyers's home-fried brand of sadistic evil.
The Haunting in Connecticut
Based on the notoriously fake "true story," this tale is about a family living in an former mortuary that is now dominated by an evil entity. Despite it's dubious origins, it still manages to dole out the creeps.

<![CDATA[The Worst Family Vacations in Horror Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/worst-family-vacations-in-horror-movies/christopher-shultz
It's likely everyone has experienced a nightmare family vacation or two. You know, those holidays where nothing seems to go right, everyone fights each other, the A/C in the car doesn't work, brother and sister are at jockeying for backseat position, and a tire blows out in the middle of nowhere. Typically, these instances are just minor annoyances, leaving the family with mostly good memories of the trip years down the line.  

But what if, instead of a few hiccups, detours, and mishaps, your family encountered cannibals, murderers, giant evil creatures, ghosts, and even vampires? It's doubtful you'll see those experiences compiled into a slideshow and plastered on a bare wall at the next family reunion.  

These are some of the worst, most terrifying things to happen to vacationing families in horror movies. On the bright side, they'll probably make you feel better about your last family trip.

The Worst Family Vacations in Horror Movies,

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
After reports of grave desecration in the area, all that siblings Sally and Franklin want to do is road trip to their grandfather's old farm and also check on his final resting place. But rural Texas just isn't the same as it used to be, especially because of their new neighbors.  Turns out, a cannibalistic clan of killers living in a nearby house is bad for community morale. It doesn't help that one family member is fond of wearing other people's faces and wielding a chainsaw.
Dead End
It's Christmas Eve, and Frank Harrington drives his family to his mother-in-law's home for the holidays. After 20 years of following the straight-and-narrow path, Frank takes a shortcut. If there's one thing horror movies can teach viewers, it's that shortcuts are never, ever a good idea.
From Dusk till Dawn
A dad, his son, and his daughter are on a roving vacation in the family RV when two criminals on the lam decide to take them hostage. They stop off at a seedy nightspot for a rendezvous with another criminal who will escort them across the border to Mexico. Unbeknownst to the criminals, however, the bar is now a bit of a tourist trap — and its infested with vicious vampires!
Funny Games
A psychological thriller packed with jarring Brechtian devices, Funny Games revolves around the surreal and horrifying holiday of a family of three. In the movie, they are held captive and tortured by a pair of clean-cut, polo-wearing sociopaths. 
Jaws
You know the story: countless families vacationing on Amity Island are forced out of the water when a massive great white shark goes on a killing and eating rampage. Resident Sheriff Brody must protect these out-of-towners, as well as Amity citizens and his own family, from this bloodthirsty threat. He's going to need a bigger boat.
Jeepers Creepers
Brother and sister Darry and Patricia are en route to their spring break destination when they encounter a big, bloodthirsty bat-like dude who also drives a kind of truck/tank hybrid. It's the last day of this creature's feeding frenzy before he goes into hibernation, and he's aimed his targets square at the unwitting siblings.
The Evil Dead
Ash and his sister, Cheryl, take a group of friends to a cabin in the woods for a nice getaway. Everything's just find and dandy until they decide it's good idea to read some incantations from the Necrocomicon Ex-Mortis. As one might expect, these words release the Deadites who spoil all the fun.
The Hills Have Eyes
A family on route to California breaks down in the middle of the desert. What's the worst that could happen? Snakes? Tarantulas? A band of inbred dune-dwelling cannibals who plan to systematically terrorize, murder, and eat the family members one-by-one? As this is a Wes Craven picture, it's probably that last option.

Escape from Tomorrow
It's supposed to be the Happiest Place on Earth, but not so much for one family man who gradually loses touch with reality while on vacation at Disney World with his wife and kids. Shot guerilla-style at the actual park without Disney's consent, this film is a critique of the American nuclear family and the supposed squeaky-clean morals of a giant global corporation.
The Darkness
This 2016 horror film is all about what happens when the family vacation is over. Young Michael hears what is basically an urban legend/campfire tale from his sister's boyfriend while on holiday at the Grand Canyon. The scary story involves a set of five stones that, if disturbed from their resting spot, will unleash a supernatural evil onto the unsuspecting meddlers. Rather than heed the warnings of this story, Michael decides to take the stones home with him as a souvenir. You can imagine what happens next (hint: supernatural evil).

<![CDATA[15 Cursed Objects from Horror Movies You Don't Want Near You]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/scariest-cursed-objects/christopher-shultz
Terror, death, and disaster caused by cursed objects is a familiar trope in horror movies. Viewers have watched through their fingers as dolls, puzzle boxes, books, boxes, cars, stones, and even (in one hilarious case) a lamp brought about all kinds of crazy evil on the unsuspecting object-owners. From early horror films such as The Monkey's Paw to 2016's The Darkness, there are plenty of cursed objects from horror movies that definitely need to be locked away and forgotten about. But which one would you least want to be locked in a room with? That's a tough call. Vote up the most terrifying cursed object and remember: never steal anything from a deserted town or burial ground. NEVER.

15 Cursed Objects from Horror Movies You Don't Want Near You,

The Button from Drag Me to Hell
Long story short: when an old Gypsy woman asks for an extension on her loan payment, you say "YES!" Otherwise she'll snatch a button from your coat and curse the crap out of it.
The Monkey's Paw from The Monkey's Paw
Based on the classic short story, this 1933 adaptation of The Monkey's Paw captures all the atmosphere and dread in W.W. Jacobs's original tale. The titular appendage can grant three wishes, but true to the old adage, you must be careful what you wish for, especially if you wish for your dead son to return from the grave...
The Lament Configuration from Hellraiser
"You opened the box. We came," growls the lead cenobite (otherwise known as Pinhead), in Clive Barker's classic film Hellraiser. Protagonist Kristi opened the Lament Configuration, a puzzle box that, once solved, puts the cenobites on your scent and leads to unimaginable, blissful pain. Maybe go with a Rubik's cube next time, Kristi.

Annabelle from The Conjuring
To start, this doll looks super creepy. But if that's not reason enough to keep it away from you, it's also possessed by an evil spirit. It isn't clear why any child would want to play with this thing, but the one in The Conjuring does, and it leads to some jump scare-tastic results. Should've left it where you found it, kid.
The Stones from The Darkness
When will people understand? You don't mess with indigenous people's artifacts. It doesn't matter that legends about curses and evil spirits are supposedly just campfire tales. Don't touch the artifacts — and especially don't take them home with you! You know, unless you want to get possessed and start destroying the lives of everyone around you. Your choice.

The Dybbuk Box from The Possession
Supposedly based on a real object from Jewish folklore, the Dybbuk Box is said to contain an evil and malicious spirit that can possess humans. And that's precisely what happens to Em (Natasha Calis) in this film, with finger-in-mouth scary results.
The Video Game from Brainscan
This evil video game shares the same title as the film. Basically, it pretty much does what its name suggests: scans viewers' brain in order to tailor terrifying, realistic scenarios for each individual user. Be careful though, because things within the fantasy realm might leap over into reality and lead to some unsavory outcomes — namely, MURDER!  

Edward Furlong appeared in Brainscan at the height of his popularity. He wasn't terribly popular following the release of this one. Especially among the gamer crowd.

The Amulet of Pazuzu from The Exorcist
Not to be confused with the Pazuzu statue that makes numerous appearances throughout the film, this miniaturized version of its bigger brother only shows up twice in The Exorcist. Father Merrin (Max Von Sydow) first discovers the Pazuzu amulet while at an archaeological dig in Iraq, which leads him to the larger statue and the realization that his old enemy has returned. Later, Detective Kinderman (Lee J. Cobb) finds the statuette outside the home of Chris McNeil (Ellen Burstyn), whose daughter Regan (Linda Blair) is possessed by the demon Pazuzu.
The Necronomicon Ex-Mortis from Evil Dead
If you're in a musty old cabin in the woods and you find a book with a twisted, grimacing face on the cover, just don't read it. No good can come from doing so, unless you think an unending onslaught of demon-zombie hybrid monsters called Deadites is good. (Hint: it's not.)

The Internet from Pulse
The Internet has always been seen as potentially dangerous (and not just for housing pedophiles and  comment section trolls). Consider the 2001 J-horror gem, Pulse, which depicts ghosts using the "series of tubes" as a gateway to the living world, which they slowly take over. The film is a commentary on how the World Wide Web can alienate people from other people, and while some of the tech is a bit dated now, Pulse remains a solid watch.

<![CDATA[20 of the Best Jump Scares in Horror Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-jump-scares-in-horror-movies/christopher-shultz
Jump scares: they're the bane of some horror movie fans' existence and for good reason. When used ineffectively, jump scares are nothing more than cheap jolts. They're no more impressive or memorable than that a quick jaunt through a decent haunted house. But when used appropriately, the jump scare can create some of the most startling scenes in horror movie history.

Good jump scares make some horror films unforgettable. Who can forget Jason Voorhees's magnificent debut in the original Friday the 13th? Or Dallas's unfortunate meet-up with the xenomorph in Alien? Or the utterly terrifying jump scare from The Exorcist III (you know the one).  

If you love horror movie scenes that make you jump, this list of the best jump scares is sure to delight (and terrify).


20 of the Best Jump Scares in Horror Movies,

Salem's Lot, Vampire in Your Face!
Tobe Hooper (of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame) adapted this TV mini-series from Stephen King's novel. It features cinema-quality scares, such as this iconic moment involving the lead vampire, Barlow. See also the scene featuring pint-sized blood-suckers floating outside a kid's window — supreme nightmare fodder.
A Nightmare on Elm Street, Wake UP!
This jump scare appears at the end of the very first scene in A Nightmare on Elm Street, setting audiences up for an onslaught of jump scares in every scene. But writer/director Wes Craven steps back and takes his time developing the characters and plot, so that when the next shocking moment occurs, it resonates even further. But this is just the first in the series of classic jump scares from this iconic series. It's also fun. Of any franchise, the Nightmare on Elm Street films have always been the most fun to watch. And this jump scare starts off the whole thing.
It Follows, Tall Man in the Doorway
The "it" in It Follows can pretty much appear at any time and in any form, so audiences watching the film are never quite prepared for the thing's arrival. While there are numerous unexpected appearances of the "it," this one from fairly early in the film is the real creep-tastic winner.
The Rude Awakening, The Darkness
No horror movie is going to show a closeup of a girl sleeping without doing something with the scene and this jump scare from The Darkness is no different. If you're a young, hot girl who's pretty high up on the call sheet in a horror movie and there's a camera anywhere near you when you're sleeping, you probably should never open your eyes. Or run out of the room screaming. This also applies for real life. 
The Thing, Chest Defibrillation
The juxtaposition of the commonplace (attempting to revive a man via chest defibrillation) and the grotesque (the man's chest spouting a jagged-toothed maw and chomping the doctor's arms off) is a match made in jump scare heaven.
Candyman, Medicine Cabinet Surprise
As part of the Candyman's (Tony Todd's) attempt to make Helen (Virginia Madsen) his victim, the ghostly, hook-handed, bee-chested baddie attacks his macabre paramour through an unconventional space: the medicine cabinet, which is awesome because it's the medicine cabinet, NOT the mirror. Again, completely unexpected, as you're definitely waiting for the cabinet to close and the mirror to attack her or something to be behind her. 

Someone should cut this together with that scene where the children are being abducted in Hook. 
Mama, She's Mad
There are quite a few intensely creepy scenes in Mama, but this one takes the cake. The eerie, almost hypnotic flowing of the creature's hair, the unnatural length of her arms, and then her rapid movement toward the little girl all combine for one unnerving scare.
Friday the 13th, Jason's Last Hurrah
Protagonist Alice (Adrienne King) just decapitated the crazy, vengeful mother (Betsy Palmer) who was out to kill promiscuous camp counselors, since a group of them had let her son Jason drown years ago. Now, Alice floats in the still-as-glass lake. The police arrive. The music on the soundtrack is serene and beautiful. The nightmare is over.  

But no... the nightmare is just beginning! 

Halloween, He's Already in the House
The stab (pun intended) of John Carpenter's synth score is perhaps the highlight of this jump scare, where Michael Meyers (AKA The Shape) bursts out of a cabinet and stabs Bob with such force it pins him to the wall. An absolute classic.
REC, 360 Spin
Many jump scares operate under the basic premise that something unnatural or unsettling appears seemingly out of nowhere, and that's exactly how this one from REC plays out. A full 360-spin around a room reveals nothing out of the ordinary... until the camera makes it all the way back around.

You love anime but what tops this list of the best anime series ever made? The blanket term "anime" in the US can refer to any animation originating in Japan, and specifically differentiates a few aspects of Japanese animation from more Western styles. (This includes the Japanese propensity to feature adult themes and stories in animation, as opposed to Western "cartoons" aimed primarily at children, as well as the exaggerated, fantasy-oriented and colorful style of Japanese animated visuals.) "Anime" can refer either to animated films or TV series, furthering the confusion. (Anime is often incorrectly used to refer to Japanese comic books as well. These are actually known as "manga," though many anime series are based on or inspired by popular manga.) Check out the best anime of 2014 for newer recommendations! 

Anime TV series first found popularity outside of Japan in the 1980s and have continued to find larger and larger audiences in the West. A number of anime shows originating in Japan - such as Cowboy Bebop or Dragon Ball Z - have found enthusiastic audiences for dubbed versions in English speaking countries. (Pokemon, a series inspired by Nintendo's blockbuster series of video games, has been an ongoing hit franchise in both Japan and the US.) The anime style has grown so popular in the US, it has stared to significantly influence the style and aesthetics of American animation. Shows such as Avatar: The Last Airbender, Afro Samurai and Samurai Jack have borrowed heavily from anime in terms of pacing, subject matter, and design.

This list collects the best Japanese anime TV series of all time. American series that have been influenced by anime, such as Avatar: The Last Airbender, are not included.
