Default Heart stopping film moments.

For me.

Got to be the first twenty minutes of Saving Private Ryan. Saw it in the cinema and was ducking every shot. Never has a film made me fell so involved. When the film had finished and the lights went up I noticed an elderly gentleman, sat a few seats away, wiping tears from his eyes, glad I was born a lot later.

Also the head rolling out of the shipwreck in Jaws, someone in front of me had a box of Maltezers and jumped so much the lot came showering down like a scene from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory.

What is your most heart stopping film moment?

It has to be when the hand comes out the lake on the first Friday the 13th film I think it was.

Whatched that film on the big screen with a few mates, worse bit was when we went our seperate ways and I walked the last mile home in the dark on my own. Every bush and tree took on a different look that night.

The figure on the barn roof in 'signs' in fact the whole film had me wetting myself and I'm not easily scared!

That and the Japanese version of ‘The Ring’, it was really low budget and I had never seen the yank version, so when she climbed out of the telly I jumped a mile.

Gotta agree with Puggsley - tHe ring does it for me

Also the scene from Schlinder's List where the camera follows the little girl in the red coat thru all the carnage

Not scary as such but bloody moving and shocking at the brutality perpetrated on such an organized scale in such a matter of fact way

If anyone from those times said to me they know nothing of the horrors then Id call them a liar

Some great moments.

Never seen Signs or The Ring. I'll have a look around and see if I can find somewhere I can pick'em up.

If you pick up 'signs' on DVD it's def worth watching the directors cuts, some very scary bits we're left out for fear of making the film too long.

One of the scariest things about signs I found was Mel Gibson's acting

Default Wait Until Dark

The 1967 version with Audrey Hepburn. There was a moment where everyone in the theatre gasped aloud.

Watch this one in the dark.

Not seen the film, but it makes me cross my legs thinking about it.

When I watched speed for the first time. Pretty much on the edge of my seat for the whole film.

I have SPR on DVD. It is awesome if you have a decent 5.1 system. The first time I watched it I was exhausted after the first twenty minutes!

Also - not quite heart-stopping - but the final shoot out in The Good the Bad and the Ugly is one of the finest pieces of cinema.

@ Shred

Scary Movie 3 does a good parody of it, I love the way the aliens say 'hello'.
