Within those horror flicks, there exists on particular scare that is unlike any other, the jump scare. Whether it is a loud noise, a fast movement or sudden camera change, the jump scare is one that has haunted and scared movie watchers for years.
So read on and check out 10 of the best movie moments that made you jump. But beware; this article contains a number of spoilers.
This is one of the weirder moments on this list and comes from the Japanese classic, Audition. Through the first half of the movie, it seems to just be a strange film about a man trying to find true love, and then the bag scene happens. The scene is framed perfectly as a bag is randomly set in the back of the room throughout the scene. However, once the phone in the room rings, the large bag suddenly flies across the room while making a strange, guttural, almost human-like noise. It is not until later in the film that we realize that the bag actually contained a man who has numerous body parts removed.
