* "Forever Ambergris". ''GOOD GOD'', "Forever Ambergris"! This episode is literally nothing but BodyHorror and NauseaFuel brought UpToEleven! A photographer gets a disease that literally rots him alive, and at one point ''[[EyeScream his eye falls out!]]''

** And then there's the ending: the photographer's rival (who sent him into the infected zone in the first place) ends up with the dead guy's girlfriend, just as he planned. As the killer and the photographer's girlfriend are having sex, she reveals that [[spoiler: she knows he killed her boyfriend: he wrote her a letter before his death; he also sent her the balsam they just smoked -- from the same infected village. And then [[NauseaFuel the veins on her body burst open, spraying them both with black infected blood]].]] As if that weren't enough, [[spoiler: the murderer runs to the bathroom, frantically trying to wash off the blood -- only for his nose to fall off into the sink.]] Yikes.

* The zombies in "None But The Lonely Heart". [[spoiler: The two most recently deceased (whose deaths we saw in the episode) are rotting and slimy. The third is little more than a dried-up, mummylike husk. The fourth is a worm-ridden skeleton in a rotting wedding dress. The episode ends with all of them cornering the protagonist in a mausoleum and chowing down on him with a nauseating crunch.]]

** What makes it especially scary was how sudden it was. Until TheReveal, there were no supernatural elements within the episode whatsoever, which makes the jarring appearance of the [[spoiler:zombies]] that much more frightening, BodyHorror aside.

Added DiffLines:

** The opening sequence can be pretty nightmarish if it's your first time watching it. You get to tour a pretty creepy-looking haunted house before eventually coming upon a coffin, which suddenly opens to reveal the Crypt Keeper, laughing maniacally.

* There's the show finale "The Third Pig", a rather twisted take on the classic fairy tale Three Little Pigs. It's also the only episode of the show to be animated as opposed to live-action. ''[[DerangedAnimation That doesn't make it any less frightening]].''

** In syndication, maybe, but the uncut HBO version shows it in all its {{Nausea Fuel}}ed glory. Definitely more gruesome onscreen.

* One of the worst was "For Cryin' Out Loud", where Lee Arenberg (Pintel from ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'') played a nightclub owner whose conscience ''finally'' gets through to him after decades of trying - just in time to advise him against embezzling charity money in an abstract of ''Literature/TheTelltaleHeart'', but a bit more literally once [[spoiler: he murders his blackmailing banker]]. What pushes this into nightmare territory, though, is the final sequence. Marty has used Q-tips throughout the episode to try and clear the voice out of his head, and is shown at one point mashing them against his ears [[PlayedForLaughs in a funny way]]. But then he's shown wandering through the club, unable to hear anything but the persistent voice, and seeing people stare at him oddly. After blurting a confession to murder, the voice in his head has this to say, prompting Marty to [[spoiler:pull over '''half of a bloody Q-tip''' out of his left ear]].
