** Snow White spotting the Queen staring through the window.
** Just the frontal shots of her Witch form in general. The way she stares into the screen makes you feel like [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou she's watching you]]. The fact that it's like looking through a point of view shot at those points doesn't help.

** Her [[Franchise/StarWars Palpatine-esque]] Witch form is also quite disturbing, especially in frontal shots like when Snow White spotting the Queen spots her staring through the window.

*** The music during that sequence is absolutely terrifying! The queen's hands change into long and ugly fingers, her hair grows white and you don't have the feeling that swallowing the magic potion is a pleasant experience for her at all...

It's quite reminiscent of Donovan's fate in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade''.



** It doesn't help that the Queen's personality and appearance is VERY reminiscent of the legend of ElizabethBathory.

** The queen kicking the skeleton in her dungeon and laughing adds some gratuitously creepy BlackComedy. "Have a drink!" Because the guy died of thirst with the water jug just out of reach. Especially when you consider that the movie originally was going to show us the guy when he was still alive and not all skeletal. [[SamusIsAGirl Assuming it was a guy.]] Maybe it was the ''previous'' "fairest of them all"... Whoever was in there though, it's still nightmarish, considering the fact that the water pitcher was right in front of him ''centimeters'' out of reach.

Especially when you consider that the movie originally was going to show us the guy when he was still alive and not all skeletal. [[SamusIsAGirl Assuming it was a guy.]] Maybe it was the ''previous'' rival for "fairest of them all"...

* The build up to it. At first things start to play off like a MookHorrorShow, with the furious dwarfs making a bee line for the Queen as she limps up the cliff in desperation, only to reach a dead end. She panics for a moment...then her fury at the dwarfs threatening her rises, and lightning brims as she starts dislodging the nearby boulder, [[AttackAttackRetreatRetreat immediately turning the tables]]. She would have crushed the dwarfs had not she been pretty cast down by a random bolt of lightning.
-->'''Queen:''' The meddling ''fools''!...I'll fix ya, I'LL CRUSH YOUR BONES!!! ''*laughs maniacally*''

** The woods sequence was actually noted as being extremely scary to audiences during its initial theatrical run; some people even rushed out of the theatres in anguish.

** The woods sequence was actually noted as being extremely scary to audiences during its initial theatrical run; some people even rushed out of the theatres in anguish. In fact, when the film was screened at Radio City Music Hall, children in the audience got so scared by the scene that they wet or shit their pants, causing the entire velvet seat upholstery to be replaced. In addition, as a result of the scene, the British Board of Film Classification ended up giving the film an "A" rating, meaning children could only see the film if accompanied by an adult.

** The dwarfs look down below at the incident. Given they were all set to tear the Queen limb from limb, whatever's left of her down there leaves them pretty spooked.

** The one tree near the end of the sequence that momentarily transforms into some sort of demon-beast-thing as Snow White plummets through a loose patch of foliage, making it look as if the demon-thing's swallowing her whole. '''''[[AndIMustScream WHILE SHE'S STILL BREATHING.]]'''''

* What the Queen actually does to Snow White is terrifying enough...what about the fate that she had planned for her all along? After Snow eats the apple, the only thing that saves her life is the fact that the dwarves couldn't bear to bury her, and left her in an above-ground coffin instead. Imagine [[AndIMustScream what would have happened]] [[BuriedAlive if they didn't...]]
