Judge Doom – Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)
Released in 1988, Who framed Roger Rabbit is a pioneering work combining animation and live-action genres, with special effects. However, the best effect in the movie has to be the human element, hidden in the form of Roger’s strange enemy, Judge Doom.

Actor Christopher Lloyd startled children when he played the role of a black-shirted enforcer of justice. At the end of the film, this character is revealed to be an “animated”. A versatile actor, Lloyd also played Doc Brown in the Back To The Future film series. However, not most of the audience realized he was here.
The film’s scary factor is also heightened thanks to an inspired creative decision from Lloyd. “They are not human. So I just feel like Judge Doom should never have blinked,” he revealed in an interview with the streaming service Disney+.
“If the character just looks like that then it makes him even more ominous rather than scary. It’s not really difficult, I just need to keep my eyes open as long as possible, try to open my eyes as much as possible in the next shot,” Lloyd shared.
Medusa – Clash of the Titans (1981)
Clash of the Titans (1981) is the last big screen project of legendary animator Ray Harryhausen. The master of still life has given a rather difficult task to the hero of Greek mythology, Perseus (Harry Hamlin).

Towards the end of the film, Perseus faced the snake-headed Medusa… Or rather, he didn’t, because the creature would turn its victims to stone if looked directly at. Perseus destroyed his fearsome opponent by studying his movements through the reflection of his shield.
Medusa may have lost her head, but the terrifying scene left many young viewers (and maybe a few older ones) with sleepless nights.
Grand High Witch – The Witches (1990)
Director Nicolas Roeg is famous for his surreal and fascinating images. The ending of the 1973 horror classic Don’t Look Now is one of the most jarring endings in cinema history.
In the first scenes, actress Anjelica Huston looks seductive and soft as Eva Ernst. When she removed her disguise and became the great witch, everyone started screaming. The male lead made the audience cry because he was disguised as a combination of a bald bird and a melting candle.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit director Robert Zemeckis released a new adaptation in 2020, with Anne Hathaway as the ultimate witch.
Jaws – The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
The character Jaws played by Richard Kiel appears in both The Spy who Loved Me and Moonraker, but if the first time he appeared he was just a cruel henchman, the second time he became heroic and tragic. love. With his massive body, crazy smile and sharp metal teeth, he makes people even more scared with his “achievement” of killing sharks with his bare hands. He never spoke, endured pain very well and always smiled as he pursued his victims.

The horrifying scene when Jaws killed an investigator at the pyramid was deeply imprinted in the memories of many viewers.
Richard Kiel is the man behind the molars. Ironically, he had dental problems from an early age! The original plan was to eliminate the character, but producers soon realized they were looking for something special. His strong presence brought Jaws back with 1979’s Moonraker.
Skeksis – The Dark Crystal (1982)
Creator Jim Henson brought audiences into the magical world of The Dark Crystal in 1982. Those expecting cute frogs and karate-chopping pigs will be surprised by this very dark, full-blown film. Challenging and very, very scary!
Skeksis’s creations are the key to haunting children’s dreams. The scheming miners are more like something out of a Stephen King novel than a children’s puppet show. They were conceived by Henson and conceptualized by fantasy artist Brian Froud.
Chamberlain’s image is especially memorable for his repeated and disturbing use of the word “Mmmmm!”
The character of Frank Oz became a tragic figure, in a truly shocking scene where he was brutally dissected by his Skeksis brothers.
Netflix’s prequel series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance (2019) brought back the Muppet-fueled monsters to terrify the younger generation…
Freddy Krueger – A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Actor Freddy Krueger became a main character after his debut in Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984). The vampire with the dirty face and the dream invader with blades on his fingers are everyone’s idea of a vampire.

There is no doubt that many young people regretted watching the bloody scenes. They wish they could go back in time so they wouldn’t watch something so scary before going to bed.
Robert Englund has played Freddy in many films and television shows. This actor believes that the character in the movie has created a new resonance in the young imagination of young people.
“There is nothing more private than your dreams. They are like a secret diary or a drawer in your desk. The fact that someone could invade their private space is a fear that worries many young people.”
Evil Queen – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs made history in 1937 as Disney’s first animated film. Why is it remembered so well? That’s because of the beautifully illustrated characters and impressive, timeless songs. Of course, contributing to that success is the evil queen character, voiced by Lucille La Verne. This is a villain who terrifies many children when she turns from a beautiful queen into an old woman.

This transformation left psychological scars on my childhood movie journey. Not stopping there, the film was released in theaters in 1983.
Child Catcher – Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968)
Child kidnapping scene in the movie
What could be scarier than a sinister figure who spins a net to capture children? Famous actor and dancer Robert Helpmann’s performance as the terrifying child-catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968) still has the ability to make children hide every time they hear a character’s voice or the soundtrack play. .
