** The motion trackers in ''Film/{{Aliens}}''. Not only does the rising tone of the detection chime become outright terrifying, especially in the tense build-up to the "Last Stand" scene, but even the soft "paf" of the tracker [[NothingIsScarier when it's]] ''[[NothingIsScarier not]]'' [[NothingIsScarier detecting anything]] causes fear because you [[GenreSavvy just]] '''[[GenreSavvy know]]''' [[GenreSavvy what it's leading to]]. Tip: if you want to wake up quick, program this sound to be your alarm clock's sound the night after watching Aliens. Additionally [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kVJRVNJbgo the screeches and hisses]] of the Aliens themselves are quite terrifying.

** "Liberate.... me..." Free me. [[spoiler:Except that's all they could hear over the horrible distortion and grisly screams. It's later found out to be "liberate tuteme ex infernis", or "save yourself from hell." And the sounds were the crew and ship tearing each other - and themselves - apart in a horrible orgy of violence and madness.]] One of the more literal interpretations of [[HellIsThatNoise the trope in question]].

* ''Film/{{Irreversible}}'' contains a nearly-inaudible, low-frequency noise intended to make viewers uncomfortable. It is apparently there to cause sensitive viewers to leave the theater before [[RapeAsDrama things get]] really bad.

* In ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'', Moria has the drums...drums in the deep... [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom doom, doom, doom]]... Best of all, when the first drum is heard, everyone in the audience and in the scene can tell that [[OhCrap the shit has hit the fan.]]

** In [[{{Ringu}} the original Japanese movie]], the videotape contains a grating, high-pitched squeaking sound which is heard multiple times throughout the movie. It is creepy. Also, during the ending, a single, high-pitched squeak is heard ''repeatedly'' when [[spoiler:Sadako is coming for Ryuji]]... and it only rises in pitch as [[spoiler:she gets closer to emerging from the TV]].
*** In the same movie, the barely-audible speech of the "Towel-Headed Man" from the video (used twice in the first film and then used once towards the end of ''Ring 2'') will ''haunt you''.

* The opening action sequence of ''GangsOfNewYork'' has "Shimmy She Wobble" and "Signal to Noise", both of which are ''not'' pleasant to hear. "Shimmy She Wobble" is heard as the Dead Rabbits are marching through their cavernous brewery out to the street; it's a slightly neurotic fife-and-drum march, which when paired with an army of grotesque thugs and their barbaric surroundings is really quite creepy. "Signal to Noise", by PeterGabriel, plays during the fight with the Nativists in the square outside; it starts out merely grim and ominous, unsettlingly building toward some uncertain unpleasantness...and then, an ear-splitting, electronic "SHREEEEEEEE!"

** One of the things Jackson had not merely right, but ''perfect''.
** Also, that tapping noise that happens right after Pippin drops a stone in the well in the same chapter.
