No. 2: The Videotape from "The Ring"
"The Ring" is a creepy, bone-chilling film with a very odd premise that is difficult to explain or understand. It's one of those films that can't be accurately described because the only way to get it is to see it.
The film is about a cursed videotape that causes anyone who views it to die in seven days. What makes "The Ring" transcend its goofy and unbelievable premise is director Gore Verbinski, who proves that he can suck terror and suspense out of any scene or situation.
The images that appear on the videotape are very disturbing and are "like someone's nightmare," the kind of thing that stays with you late at night after you have come home from the theater and are trying to fall asleep.
Why not pop an old videotape into the VCR to help lull you to sleep?
Then again, you could just raid the fridge for a late-night snack instead ...
No. 1: The Refrigerator from "Ghostbusters"
The 1984 blockbuster "Ghostbusters" perfected the art of mixing comedy with horror and also made us wonder a lot more about our refrigerators besides if the light actually turned off when you shut the door.
In one of the film's most famous scenes, eggs that start cooking themselves on the counter startle Sigourney Weaver's character. After she hears growling from the refrigerator she opens it to find a door to another dimension with ghastly creatures growling and snarling at her.
"Generally you don't see that type of behavior in a major appliance," Bill Murray said to Weaver after she called up the Ghostbusters to investigate.
When Murray finally reached the famous fridge, he slowly opened the door, expecting to find terror beyond his wildest imagination.
"Oh my god!" Murray called out as Weaver waited in anticipation. "Look at all the junk food! Do you actually eat all this stuff?"
Expired cottage cheese? Now that's truly frightening.
