** The whole idea of that part of Marion's arc is horrible. This is a man who has an education for the express purpose of understanding, analyzing, and learning how to treat mental illness. The "You smug fuck!" scene drives it home; the entire reason for his getting involved with Marion in the first place is ''because'' he knows that she's a weak-willed dreamer. He knows damn well that she's at risk for addiction. He's violent with her because he's been ''waiting the entire time'' for her to whore herself out to him, because he knew that's what she'd eventually end up doing... and like most abusers, once he knows he's got her once, he knows he's got her for good.

* In the scene where Marion has sex with her psychologist for money, he grabs and kisses her so violently [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything it almost feels like a rape scene]].

* Marion having a dollar bill stuffed into her mouth during the MadnessMontage. There's something succinctly horrible about a barely-conscious woman being gruesomely violated by a stranger, for a crowd of jeering strangers, and being fed a single dollar from an anonymous, sweaty hand. It's a hell of an image to express how worthless her addiction has made her.

On second thought
Oh my God...

* Anything in the "Winter" suite of the soundtrack, especially Meltdown.

* The whole movie could apply to some, though most of it falls into {{Tearjerker}} territory. The real NF here is Sara's descent into madness over the course of Fall and Winter. This sequence gives us such gems as Sara's POV of the world, which is menacing in every possible aspect, a refrigerator coming to life to eat her complete with loud, startling banging sounds, a TV personality emerging from the TV as a bizarre being made of static and mocking her, and the simple, horrific image of a completely fucked up Sara walking down a sidewalk in broad daylight. That last one also serves as the first image seen during the Winter segment, just to make sure you knew what the last third of the movie was about to be like.

Hell Is That Noise is getting cleaned-up: it is no longer an Audience Reaction. Please enter examples in only if the characters within the work are frightened.
* The shock therapy, and the HellIsThatNoise accompanying the scene.

Don't be lewd.
** Hell, just the fact that they took something which would have been {{Fanservice}} and FetishFuel galore (JenniferConnelly double-dildoing [[GirlOnGirlIsHot with another girl]]? Sign me up!) in any other scenario, and turned it into pure 100% NightmareFuel.

Moved from the general Music NF page.

* Anything in the "Winter" suite of the soundtrack, especially Meltdown. ** "Lux Aeterna" is as creepy as it is awesome. ''More'' creepy, actually (except the orchestrated "Requiem for a Tower" version, which is just awesome.)
