One movie that really scared the crap out of me when I was very young was CARRIE. This one I remember the most. I was about six and watched it with my sister. The part that freaked me out was the scene where she has pigs blood dumped on her during her moment of bliss. The insane look on her blood covered face before and during wiping out the entire school. The ruthless way she used her psychic powers to off everyone. That part was pretty intense for a six year old.
Thanks Dogboy, you're certainly not alone. You've brought up one of the most enduring images in all of modern horror. You also got me thinking: isn't it especially horrific because it's pigs blood? Well, I guess there is really no kind of blood you would want dumped on your head at your prom, but pigs blood just seems especially disgusting. In fact, pigs have snorted their way into some of the creepiest scenes ever. Don't believe me? Take a look….Â
In 1981's EVIL SPEAK
, RON HOWARD
's more talented brother CLINT HOWARD
took a cue from Carrie White and decided to demolish all the jerks who were poking fun at him. He didn't have any telekinetic powers, so he contacted Satan through his computer and viola! Giant hogs from hell rose up from the church floor and ate everybody. Good times!
Holy crap. Do you remember that little girl in THE AMITYVILLE HORROR
was best friends with a demonic pig named Jody? Everybody thought she was full of it, 'till the night her psycho father JAMES BROLIN
looked up and saw the porcine poltergeist winking at him with a glowy red eyeball! In the remake they made Jody into your typical ghost girl. Dumb idea, nothing is scarier than a pig.
If a simple pig is not scary enough, how about one with a chainsaw? Actually, that's really Farmer Vincent from MOTEL HELL
wearing a pig head as a mask which is even worse, now that I think about it. That shit ain't kosher!
Yikes! This is my all time least favorite. It's from the 1972 movie ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND
which they were awful enough to show on T.V. every five seconds when I was little. In the movie, Alice rescues a baby from being beaten to death and then, as a thank you, it turns into a pig! To be honest, I think I would usually prefer a pig to a baby, but this one was ugly as hell, just look at it! In that same deadly year of 1972 there was even a movie called PIGS
(a.k.a DADDY'S DEADLY DARLING
), but I refuse to grant it infamy by including it on this list because every time I tried to watch it on ELVIRA,
it made me fall asleep.
Dear readers if you can think of anymore scary pigs please throw them into that troff we call the comments section so I can be sure to avoid them at all costs!Â
