* In the second part of the pilot episode, a small expedition of survivors - namely Kate, Sawyer, Sayid, Charlie, Boone, and Shannon - manage to get the transceiver working and hear a transmission in French. After a couple seconds of Charlie cheering that the French are coming to rescue them, Shannon translates the transmission: "The others are dead. It killed them. It killed them all. It is outside." The MoodWhiplash makes an already creepy moment that much more chilling. There's also an accompanying counting voice; it sounds eerily monotone, not unlike a NumberStation. Once again, Charlie has the last word: "Guys... where are we?"



** For me it was when [[spoiler: Kate found Claire in the hole. Especially Claire's angry KubrickStare when Kate told her that it wasn't the temple people who took Aaron. It was really her.]] Also, [[spoiler: Claire happily delivering the following line with a smug smile on her face:]] "He's coming Kate! He's coming and they can't stop him!"
** Also from "Sundown", [[spoiler: Sayid's very brief conversation with Ben, complete with {{slasher smile}}.]] When ''Ben'' is creeped out, you ''know'' something's terribly, terribly wrong. It was also just ''slightly'' awesome.
** Considering what a creepy, AxCrazy guy he is, [[spoiler: it was rather unnerving to see Martin Keamy again.]]. There was something very odd about his eyes -- maybe contacts, maybe just lighting -- which sent him into the UncannyValley. Maybe it's the fact that this particularly evil monster is actually ''smiling''. You know something's wrong when he's cheerful.
*** Definetely inappropriate contacts, and his [[{{Camp}} usual]] squirrel-smile, [[ChewingTheScenery soiled by pieces of the scenery]]. It takes the whole scene to the edge of {{Narm}}.
*** But you must admit, he makes great eggs.
** The scene where [[spoiler: Claire and Sayid, now both completely turned over to the side of evil incarnate, are walking calmly through the carnage left over from the temple attack. With Claire singing a cheerful rendition of 'Catch a Falling Star' in the backround.]]
*** Claire's "baby". That she knows it isn't real somehow makes it worse.
* Going back to the earlier seasons, in the pilot episode the Losties first get the radio working and hear a transmission in French. After a couple seconds of them cheering that the French are coming to rescue them, Shannon translates the transmission which says in part: "The others are dead. It killed them. It killed them all. It is outside." The MoodWhiplash makes an already creepy moment that much more chilling.
** It doesn't help that the counting voice sounds just like a NumberStation.
*** Fridge Logic says that's probably exactly what the radio broadcast of the numbers was originally set up as.

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'' is unnerving.
** That 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.

* The mercenaries dispatched to the island by [[spoiler:Charles Widmore]] in season 4 exhibit a horrifyingly callous disregard for human life. Martin Keamy in particular shows a disturbing willingness to kill people almost on a whim. At the end of ''Meet Kevin Johnson'', his team [[spoiler:snipes Karl and Danielle dead almost out of nowhere, leaving Alex alone and with no choice but to surrender]]. Keamy seizes the opportunity to [[spoiler:hold her as ransom in exchange for her father Ben, and ''coldly shoots her dead'' when he refuses to surrender]]. The mercenaries commence an assault on the barracks knowing full well that a baby is among its occupants, and when their siege fails, they return to the Kahana freighter and have it rigged with explosives, set to go off in the event of Keamy's death. He killed friend and foe alike, and it was genuinely chilling to observe his casual willingness to murder so many people.
* Seasons 4 and 5 are ''chock-full'' of psychological horror. Just imagine [[spoiler:witnessing what appears to be the deaths of close friends or relatives and spending the next three years believing them to be gone]]. Imagine [[spoiler:watching an island literally vanish before your eyes, and then having to lie about everything you've experienced throughout the 108 days you had spent there]]. Imagine [[spoiler:flipping through different eras seemingly at random, or getting what appears to be cerebral hemorrhaging from the blinding flash of light that happens at each time warp, or having your present-day consciousness replaced with that of yourself from eight years prior and going back and forth in time (4x05, ''The Constant''), or spending years stuck in the past with no way to return to the present, or pretending a baby is your biological son when he's not]], etc.
* The Statue of Tawaret. A giant, Colossus-like sculpture of the Ancient Egyptian fertility god looking out into the open sea. It has the face of a hippopotamus and the body of a man - except for its feet, which have only four toes each. The thing that adds to its mystique is, you never really get a good look at the full statue from the front. The only time its face is ever shown in any significant detail is when the Black Rock is sailing towards it in the midst of a fierce storm]] (6x09, ''Ab Aeterno''). One of the slaves below deck managed to catch a glimpse of it from a hole in the cabin walls. He thought he saw the devil. It's not hard to see why.



* Nikki and Pauolo being BuriedAlive, especially when Nikki opens her eyes just in time to have a face full of dirt thrown in it. [[AlasPoorScrappy Even Scrappies don't deserve that.]]

** On their very first night following the plane crash, the survivors hear strange noises in the jungle. They range from mechanical clicking, something akin to stomach-growling, an eerie whale-esque siren, and what can best be described as the sound of a construction project from Hell that's on the verge of collapsing at the foundation. Keep in mind, these are the closest approximations that can be made when describing these noises; they sound otherworldly and unnatural, not like anything you'd ever hear in real life. Then the Survivors see a few trees getting knocked over in the distance, and it becomes clear that this creature - whatever it may be - is not something you'd typically find in a Polynesian jungle.
** The next day, The monster snatches the pilot from the cockpit and bludgeons him to death in what is clearly a far more gruesome manner than what would later be seen. Certainly you must've gotten chills when Jack, Kate, and Charlie are visiting the wreckage in the jungle, or the night before when they first heard the monster roaming about. And the first time we see a dead person walking around the island (Christian) is very creepy indeed.

Certainly you must've gotten chills when Jack, Kate, and Charlie are visiting venture into the wreckage jungle in search of the cockpit. After finding it, they encounter the pilot in the cabin, barely clinging to life. What better time for the monster to show up just outside? The pilot barely survives long enough to tell them that the plane was 1,000 miles off course before he peers out the broken window to investigate the strange noises... and is promptly snatched from the plane and gruesomely bludgeoned to death. After a short chase through the jungle, or the night before when they first heard survivors come across his bloody, mangled body in a tree canopy. Charlie said it best: "How does something like that ''happen''?"
** "Walkabout" and "White Rabbit" feature a mysterious figure dressed in a blue suit apparating as if from nowhere. Jack is
the monster roaming about. And only one to see this man, and it catches him off guard for some reason. Turns out, this "mysterious figure" is his father, the late Christian Shephard, whose body was being transported via casket back to Los Angeles. The first time we you see a dead person walking around the island (Christian) is very creepy indeed.

As Hurley and Sawyer 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.

* Just about anything to do with the hatch button, although the Swan training film is particularly notable in its creepiness.
** The terrifying moment when [[spoiler: the countdown ran out and Egyptian symbols started appearing instead of numbers]].

** ''Everything'' about that cabin is terrifying. Even taking its unremarkable backstory into consideration (constructed in the late 1970s by DHARMA Initiative leader Horace Goodspeed as a retreat for him and his family), it's just a downright creepy place. In the premiere of Season 4, Hurley comes across it in the middle of the night and peers in through the window to see Christian Shepherd sitting in the chair at the center of the room... and then somebody else comes up to the window and looks back out at Hurley, who is so scared at this point that he runs back into the jungle in a panic. But it gets worse. After running a safe distance away from the cabin, Hurley stops to survey the area, turns around - and sees the cabin again, right in front of him. The building has the ability to ''move''.

* The early episodes of the series set the course for all kinds of spooky. I mean, the monster eats the pilot in a far more gruesome manner than what would later be canon. Certainly you must've gotten chills when Jack, Kate, and Charlie are visiting the cockpit. And the first time we see a dead person walking around the island (Christian) is very creepy indeed.
** As for the pilot's death, it's not contradictory of the later canon at all. He wasn't shown to have been "eaten", just battered and bloody. Smokey could have easily beat him into that state. Still very scary, this troper remembers being horrified when we first saw his body perched in the tree.
* Jacob's cabin, for one.
** Jacob himself, for two.
*** Except that wasn't him. We now know it was The Monster. I'd still like to know who the other guy was, though, the guy whose eye we saw.
*** It was Christian.
*** Christian (well, MIB in his guise) was confirmed as being the first figure. The second figure was probably either Jacob or another case of MIB projecting himself (like he did when tormenting Eko).

** As for * In Season 3's "The Man Behind the pilot's death, it's not contradictory of Curtain", Locke is led by Ben to a remote cabin in the later canon at all. He wasn't shown to have been "eaten", just battered and bloody. Smokey woods so that he could have easily beat him into that state. Still very scary, this troper remembers being horrified when we first saw his body perched a face-to-face meeting with Jacob, the unseen leader of the Others.

center of the room, which Locke quickly deduces is an act. Things get weird when he motions back towards the entrance and a deep, monotone male voice is heard: ''"Help... me..."'' Suspicion initially falls on Ben, but as it turns out, he didn't hear anything. Suddenly, everything in the cabin begins shaking violently, as if it were haunted by some malevolent spirit. Items get thrown about, glasses and windows are shattered, the lantern they placed on the table falls over, a small fire breaks out - and for one.

* Perhaps the single scariest moment in the entire series happened all the way back in Season 1's "Deux Ex Machina". The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vb42PdhmDtA&t=8s scene]] opens with Locke and Boone arguing over whether
or another case not opening the hatch is a fool's errand. Locke remains adamant that the island is simply testing their faith.
