    Anyone think of a great scene from dvd movie that really make ppl jump .

    I mean like you know whats coming, you know someone watching hasnt seen the movie and you rack the vol. up (using the remote without anyone realising), its dark, atmospheric, glued to the screen, could hear a pin drop...............ARGHHHH.

    heheh sadistic eh...a good test of anyones setup.

    The Others: Scene where Nicole Kidman has to go up stairs to check out spare room where her child says the folk in the house are hiding. You need to watch from beggining of scene for full effect. Latsw about 3-5 minutes but if your system is working properly the hairs on back of your neck will be up and everyone will crap themselves....hahahaha..

    The classic scene is the one from Jaws when the head pops out of the boat.

    I was also deeply shocked when Patrick Swayze appeared in Donnie Darko. Who would have thought he would ever be in anything good.

    Best 'jump' scene for me has to be the 'double' dream sequence in 'American Werewolf in London'!

    Jaws was a good one, how about the bit in Sixth sense where the Girl grabs the Boys leg while hes stood near the bed.

    Or that bit in poltergiest where th kid loses the clown.

    Even that bit in LOTR when the cave troll is chasing frodo around the sarcophagus.

    Hell, I jump in nearly every film, so Im probably not the ideal for picking out the best ones.

    I jumped while watching Spider-Man last night. Was the scene near the start of the movie, when one of the characters awakens in the morning has a flashback of the night before. Had to turn the volume down a bit after that :blush:

    Just remembered another one..............minority report, where cruise is looking at the three people in the floating tank and one of them wakes up.............I was nearly on the roof and I knew it was going to happen.

    Not a scene from a movie but an Alice Cooper song !!

    At the end of this track it all goes quiet and then a very eerie voice pipes up "Steeeeven"

    I recorded that for a mate (called Steven) on the end of CD I had ripped for him and didnt tell him..he went home to listen to it on his stereo with his headphones on..lying on his bed dozing off..and then

    "STEEEEEVEN"


    I wish I could have been there cos when he told me about it I couldnt stop laffing for ages !!! :D

    Superb *That* scene. Final Destination


    ***MAJOR SPOILER BELOW***

















    You are obviously refering to the guy who got creamed by the bus. Woa, I was so shocked when I was watching that, I remember looking around the room when we had friends over and everyone was just looking blank at each other thinking what the fudge!!

    Again, 'The Others', and again a scene that only works with a good surround set-up, namely the bit in the children's bedroom where the ghost runs across the room and whips the curtains open.

    Eeeek!

    The bit in "Aliens" where the apparently dead face-hugger in the glass jar suddenly slams itself against the glass.

    A couple that spring to mind ...
    The Haunting (yes I know its pants but the sound Discrete ES !!!)
    There's a real quiet bit with the characters all gathered round the dinner table & a piece of coal cracks in the fire (happens right behind you in DTS-ES) scares the sh!t out of ya ...
    On Fantasia 2000 the Firebird Suite there's a bit near the start where it goes from real quiet to REAL LOUD in a split second & I was drinking coffee at the time !!! (ouch:eek: )
    Paul ;)

    Yep, what theatre was that in, I reckon I was there.:cool:

    I remember watching some movie(cant remember title) in theatre and this guy was about to get his face ripped off by a lawnmower, not a flymo, a monster mower.

    I only realised that I myself was also trying to dodge the blades as I was leaning back so much I could hear the couple behind me laughing. I was totally immersed in the movie so much I cant remember the title now.

    Also while on the subject, I remember watching Jurasic Park. The scene where the TRex is doing the hundred meters donw the track, two young lads in next row in front, one turned and sneezed on the other, in his face!!, gruesome, the victim promptly turned on his friend with a kind of sitting uppercut......funniest thing I ever see in the movies. I mean some special effects for that.

    Mr. Jedi, (sorry, Master Jedi! :D )
    It was the old Odeon 2 (Southend-on-Sea, now closed sadly) way back in October 1986.

    I bet you are talking about the film Point Break with Keanu Reeves, Patrick Swayze and Gary Busey.

    I never used to jump at anything in films untill a couple of years ago and now it happens more oftern, I think it is because I really get into films now so they are way more atmospheric.

    Jumps that stick out:
    The Others, Aliens, Spiderman and Signs.

    Yep
    For sure, I watched that in the movies alright.

    Well done dude, surfs up.
    Best surf movie has to be Blue Juice btw IMHO.

    However when Bjue Juice graced us on DVD the best part was altered, that of Terry doing the Silver Surfer routine ontop of the PA.

    I still have VHS of that movie for that reason. Nice.

    Haven't seen it since I was at College but there's an old horror flick called 'The Woman in Black'
    This has several great jumps in it but one that stands out is when 'she' appears, hovering over the bed screaming!

    God, that's giving me chills just thinking about it!

    Great film, anyone know if it's available on DVD???

    Another vote for The Others and Final Destination from me...

    The Others is a great demo piece to scare the s**t out of your friends and show off your kit. I'd seen the film before I got my surround sound setup and didn't think it was particuarly good/scary. Watched it again last week in the dark and in DTS and i had tears in my eyes and my girlfriend wanted me to turn it off!

    spoiler alert*************

    It was the scene where Nicole Kidman hears someone running around upstairs (great use of rears) and then she goes upstairs
    and theres children whispering all round - play it loud!

    Very good - and it makes a nice alternative to explosions and car chases in 5.1 films...

    Naff film type, but: James Bond, A View to a Kill when Roger Moore goes into the empty mansion and as he starts up the stairs, the girl's cat yowls and shoots past his legs!

    The whole cinema screamed, then laughed nervously & sheepishly at each other....it's only Bond after all :blush:
