** If the character of [[ILied Ben Linus]] in ''{{Series/Lost}}'' wasn't enough to give you nightmares, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoZaOU0TFHY his theme]] might be. Composer Creator/MichaelGiacchino is a master of creating NightmareFuel. Fully half the cues in the show's history (basically all the ones that aren't {{Tear Jerker}}s) could probably give someone nightmares. Some of them manage to be both TearJerker and NightmareFuel material at the same time.

* After spending the first five seasons being scared to death of the black smoke monster, there's something very unnerving about [[spoiler: seeing the island through its eyes as it flies around making that horrible clicking sound]].
* The look on [[spoiler: Un-Locke's face]] when he sees the little boy. He actually looks scared, which given what he is and what he's capable of is spine chilling.
** And for that matter, [[spoiler: Un-Locke]] himself.

to:

* The smoke monster. Although introduced in the very first episode of the series, it seldom appears on-screen and is rarely even mentioned by the survivors prior to season 6 - but whenever it ''did'' show up, it always made one hell of an impression. It can expand itself to gargantuan proportions, possesses extraordinary strength, has the ability to take on the forms of the deceased, and emits [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-M8P14u_G8 quasi-mechanical noises] to make its presence known.

spine-chilling.
** And for that matter, [[spoiler: Un-Locke]] himself. UncannyValley is in full force whenever he appears, owing in large part to the dissonance between [[spoiler: his personality and that of the original John Locke]].



* The scene in which it's confirmed that Ethan Rom wasn't actually one of the plane crash survivors. Going straight from discovering his name wasn't on the manifest and ''realizing you have no idea who or what he really is'' to seeing him ''standing over the alone, defenseless Claire'' gave me nightmares for weeks.
** That oh so very creepy smile he gave Claire and Charlie in that scene should send chills of terror up and down your spine whenever you see Creator/WilliamMapother, regardless of the context.

Added DiffLines:

* Nikki and Paulo's ultimate fate. After their relationship was obliterated by greed, they are both [[spoiler: paralyzed by one of Artz's spiders, making them appear dead. As Hurley and Swyer bury them, Nikki wakes up just in time to see them cover her head, and both of them suffocate while fully aware of what is happening and unable to call for help. The soundtrack makes it all the more chilling.]]

to:

* In the first episode, while Kate is stitching him up, Jack talks about how he accidentally cut the nerve pouch of a 16-year-old girl the first time he performed surgery. This was in-story NightmareFuel for Jack, but can serve the same purpose for anyone who has actually ''had'' surgery too.

** It doesn't help that the counting voice sounds just like a number station (google it, they're creepy).

*** Definetely inappropriate contacts, and his usual squirrel-smile, [[ChewingTheScenery soiled by pieces of the scenery]]. It takes the whole scene to the edge of {{Narm}}.

* Locke's methodic and unconcerned preparation of [[spoiler: his suicide]], in ''The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham''. The scene doesn't skip the details that are skipped usually in movies, like the cable and the knots.
It gives a weird creepy view of what it actually means to [[spoiler: prepare to hang yourself]].
