Thursday Movie Picks #16: Halloween Edition - Jump Scares that Got You

Hey! Welcome to Thursday Movie Picks where you get to share your movie picks for each topic presented every Thursday!  Based on the theme presented each week, you can pick up to 3 to 5 movies and explain why you picked those movies! This meme is being hosted by Wandering through the Shelves!

This week's theme is: Halloween Edition: Jump Scares that Got You!

I get creep out easily whenever a jump scare pops up in a movie and the movies listed down below have jump scares that really caught me off guard!

1. Carrie (1976) - Carrie's hand popping out of the grave

There were many frightening scenes in the 1976 version of "Carrie."  But the ending scene where Carrie's bloodied hand suddenly popped out of the grave was so unexpected and still gives me chills to this day!

2. Get Out (2017) - Georgina suddenly looks at Chris through the window and Walter suddenly running towards Chris.

"Get Out" had a lot of jump scares for me, like the deer suddenly being hit by Chris's car at the beginning of the film and Georgina suddenly sneaking around the house at night.  But two scenes that really freaked me out were the scenes of Walter suddenly running towards Chris at night and Georgina suddenly looking at Chris through the window!

3. The Dark Knight (2008) - Brian's corpse in a Batman suit suddenly hits the window.

This is a non-horror movie example, but the scene where a man is in a Batman suit and his corpse is suddenly flung at a window had always creep me out to this day!


  1. Oh man, I forgot about that scene in The Dark Knight. I jumped too lol.

  2. I haven’t seen Get Out but I almost picked Carrie because of that same scene. I think I jumped 5 ft back. I forgot about that Dark Knight scene but, yes, it got me too.

  3. Great choices,all of those made me jump!

  4. Good picks! All of these made me jump too. The Dark Knight Rises scene was so unexpected.
