Top Twenty Horror Film Opening Scenes


The all too crucial opening scene...

I've always thought that a great opening scene is crucial, it can set a films tone, grip the audience or even lose them. I'd love to see film makers paying more attention to their opening scenes, make them more memorable. I'll not say anything about each video, I'll just let them speak for themselves.

So here it is, my list of my top twenty Horror film opening scenes (the list is not in a favouritism order):


The Stepfather


A Nightmare On Elm Street


Ghost Ship


Halloween


Dawn Of The Dead


Jaws


IT


The Texas Chainsaw Massacre


Cube


Black Sunday 


Darkness Falls


Frankenstein


Dracula


The Conjuring


Night Of The Living Dead 


The Ring


White Zombie


Friday The 13th


Re-Animator


The Hitcher


Honourable mentions:
  • Hatchet
  • Thir13en Ghosts
  • Suspiria
  • Carrie
  • 28 Weeks Later
