Actors: Jack Nicholson, Lia Beldam (young woman), Billie Gibson (old woman)
Scene: Jack Torrance goes to room 237 to investigate this mysterious woman Wendy accused of physically assaulting their son, Danny. Instead of getting upset at this lady upon finding her in a bath, he is rather smitten with her. As a result, we are taken aback and deem Jack Torrance a very unfit husband, and an extremely bad parent in one take. Nonetheless, it's the reflection that Jack sees in the mirror that beckons the ultimate WTF moment.
Why: One of the most WTF scenes ever on all accounts!
Scene: Jordy Verrill's unsettling demise-- after one bare touch of that 'meteor shit', Jordy Verrill's luck took a supreme downfall. His fingers, his tongue, his body and all gradually grew into weeds after direct exposure to fluids until Jordy became a full-blown plant, that could still mutter its last words; as he blows his plant-like head off from acute anguish.
Keep drinking...your 'luck' might just reverse lunkhead!
Why: As most Stephen King fans would agree, Creepshow is one of the very first anthologies ............
Now that's a WTF Horror Moment deserving of eternal limbo!
Why: After episodes of developing Beth's character, causing us to grow obsessively attached (Bethyl anyone?) as we follow her perilous and courageous journey ever so closely, only to witness her 'offing' from the series in the most doltish manner, is still very much puzzling and doleful for die hard fans everywhere to digest. WTF!!!
Stopped me dead in my thoughts for at least ten bloody seconds.
Why:David Cronenberg's Scanners is one of those movies that has absolutely embodied the WTF concept in virtually every segment of that film. This scene above is one of the most revered WTF moments which provoked any other horror movie from the 80's to meet or exceed that level of gruesomeness or go home.
The Shining (1980) starring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall is one of the most terrifying movies of all times. The visual landscapes within the walls of the Overlook Hotel alone are so eerie when mixed with the absence of people, except for the Torrance family who are hotel seating through the winter, and the supernatural element...............
