* The scary department store Santa going into slow motion, with the music in the background slowing down to match.
** Aided and abetted by the 1st Person POV fisheye camera shots as Ralphie goes up to see him. We see a distorted and fast view of a very bitter Santa (with lurid red nose) and two mean elves! HO... HO... HO.....
* Schwartz being the victim of [[AbusiveParents quite audible child abuse]] after Ralphie scapegoats him for the fudge incident.
** this qualifies more as narm, since though child abuse is already terrifying in reality, this is done in a humorous, laughable way

** Just before that freak gets the beatdown from Ralphie, he taunts the latter with faux-crying. The zoom-in on Scuts face while he does that and the shrill noise he makes is just....*shivers*. Gawd! That's one UGLY kid!
