* The first encounter of the Time Traveler with the Morlocks. [[TheDarknessGazesBack Their eyes glow in the dark.]] Not really scary, and then we see their [[SlasherSmile smile]]. And nothing more.

[[folder:The 1960 Movie]]
* The movie had quite a bit too. The aforementioned nuclear war is rather jarring (somehow the [[SpecialEffectsFailure primitive effects]] make it worse in an UncannyValley way), plus [[spoiler: at the end we're treated to a sped up scene of a Morlock decaying ''rapidly'']].
* The JumpScare when we first see the Morlocks has chilled the blood of more than a few viewers over the years. The masters of the Eloi, a race of vicious cannibalistic apes.
* How do the Morlocks get the Eloi into the tunnels in the film? By conditioning them to come to them by playing an air raid siren [[MagicalFlutist Pied Piper]] style.

* Perhaps the most scary part about the Morlocks are just how much more human they compared to the Eloi.

[[folder:The Book]]
* The Morlocks feed and tend to the childlike, innocent Eloi so that they can sneak into their houses at night, take them down to their tunnels, and eat them alive.
** ''[[AutoTuneTheNews They're climbin' in yo' windows,]] [[MemeticMutation they're snatchin' yo' people up...]]''
* Perhaps the most scary part about the Morlocks are just how much more human they compared to the Eloi.
* The Time Traveller's journey past the Eloi and the Morlocks at the end of the book. For the first time in the book, he is completely cut off from any form of humanity. As he contemplates the complete end of humanity, the only life forms around him are giant crabs and something in the shadows that we don't get to see.
* Said something in the shadows is a hopping, approximately football-sized object that utterly terrifies the Time Traveller. Scholars who are familiar with H.G. Wells's satirical idea of the future humans as nothing but overgrown brains with some kind of manipulatory organ attached recognise this as the exact opposite: a ravenous stomach without a brain.
* The fate of Weena.
