Ah yes, Star Trek II. One of the greatest horror movies of all time.

And you should really spoilerize the descriptions when describing the scenes and especially character names.

Well, I couldn't remember a body falling from the ceiling in Star Trek V.

For the Friday the 13th flicks just replace the names with "Dead Teenager" because that's all we remember anyway.

I'd like to compile a list of horror movies where the camera does a close-up on a character is doing something mundane, and as they turn around the camera pans quickly over and the musical cue SHRIEKS and the character screams as they come face to face with someone they didn't expect to be there, but it's only a friend or a cat or someone harmless...

What is this list for? Why would this list matter? At least Hokey's comment is about a cliche... It's like trying to make a list of old westerns where the bad guy rode on a brown horse with white feet.

Is this like for some drinking game you are trying to come up with? Did someone bet you that you couldn't come up with 10? I wanna know!

You sure IMDB doesn't already have a keyword for this? The other day while looking at The Exorcist, I noticed one of the many keywords was *SPOILER*
Spoiler:
"masturbation with a cross".
Luckily, it was the only film for that, but someone seriously wanted to track them? some of the keywords in IMDB are quite bizarre and unique.

I'm not sure if [REC] would apply.
Spoiler:
Out of no where a body falls from an upper floor to the landing full of actors who weren't previously informed of the effect

Well, #1 on your list would be David Lean's Great Expectations. Not a horror film, but he invented that shot.

They called that "masturbation"?

I'd hate to see what they called stabbing and mutilating a pussy with a cross then.

There's a Dead Teenager who falls onto a car in Friday the 13th (2009), scaring the About-to-be-Dead-Teenager in the driver's seat.

and add the Open/Close Mirror jump-scare.

After watching as many films as I did for the October Horror Challenge, that shit got tired.

Mrs. Voorhees, who is supposed to be 50 at the time of the original Friday the 13th, had the strength to rig up all those bodies by herself, dead weight no less.

The Fly II - when that security guard's body comes flying in from right field. It's actually really funny.
