When a character (typically a young one) wishes to scare their friends (ideally after reaching the end of a scary story) they'll shine a torch or other source of illumination upwards across their face. This will often be accompanied with a scare cord and [[MundaneMadeAwesome have a dramatic musical buildup]] but it's almost always PlayedForLaughs.

* While on the run from several [[NotAMask actual]] zombies in ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland, Shaggy and Scooby crash into the local gardener, whose lantern casts his face in this light, giving him broad, skeletal features and blank, gray eyes. After they run off, assuming he's another zombie, the gardener raises the lantern to eye level, showing that he was instead looking with concern.
