* Just think about the fact that this film alone is responsible for making people afraid of going into the sea because of what could be lurking below the surface. It's considered one of the scariest horror films ever for a good reason.

* When the dog disappears, with the very strong implication that he's become shark food. It can be very unpleasant for people who really like dogs. It doesn't help that right after the above happens, there's the attack on Alex Kitner.
** There's perhaps the most distressing thing about the implied death of the dog. ''NO-ONE NOTICED''. As horrible a thought as it might sound (especially to pet lovers), if someone had actually sighted that the dog had been taken by the shark, it would have given them some warning. And young Alex might have been spared his fate as a result. But no. A silent predator sneaks in, takes someone's cherished pet, and then takes someone's son.

*** Director Steven Spielberg added that scene during post production because he wanted to add "one last scream" into the film. [[NightmareFuel And it was definitely effective]]!

* Quint describing the ''Indianapolis'' disaster. ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Indianapolis_%28CA-35%29#Loss Because that really happened]]''. Sure, some of the finer details are wrong, but potentially hundreds of people ''really were'' EatenAlive. One of the most chilling scenes and it doesn't involve any action at all.
** Also, after he told his bonechilling story, you can hear a haunting sound. Quint explains it's just a whale, but it's still creepy.

** [[spoiler: Quint's]] death is also quite graphic. We see the shark's teeth biting right his stomach and all the blood comes out painting the water red. In the last moment you can also hear his spine breaking. Also, [[spoiler: Quint's]] screams of agony don't help.

* Everything after [[spoiler:Quint's]] death, imagine, being alone on the mast of a sinking boat, and knowing the only thing saving you from being devoured alive is a one in a million shot. And unlike the previous attacks where the shark leaves you alone for awhile, the shark, out of rams through the side of the sinking boat at Brody very unexpectedly.
** When the shark charges right towards Brody, we can see bits of flesh around it's teeth, which is most likely what is left of [[spoiler:Quint]].

A movie about a shark stalking its prey, devouring them piece by piece, with nary a noise nor expression. You bet your ass it has its scary moments. By the way, yes, the shark head really was that big.

** Let's also keep in mind [[spoiler: Quint's perspective. The shark is the embodiment of his fear and hatred due to his experiences with the sinking of the Indianapolis. After all that time, his obsession drives him right into the jaws of his greatest life-defining fear and he personally experiences an extreme version of what he witnessed happening to his friends and peers years back.]]
