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

Dawn Of The Dead
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Black Sunday 
Darkness Falls
The Conjuring
Night Of The Living Dead 
The Ring

White Zombie
Friday The 13th
The Hitcher

Honourable mentions:

  • Hatchet
  • Thir13en Ghosts
  • Suspiria
  • Carrie
  • 28 Weeks Later
