* HAL is generally creepy all throughout the film, but the sequence where he [[spoiler:murders Frank Poole by ramming him with a space pod, severing his oxygen tube]] is outright ''terrifying'', not least because [[NothingIsScarier it occurs both offscreen and in complete silence.]] Not to mention the extremely quick series of jump cuts into the lens of HAL's camera before Dave sees Frank go flying past the screen.
** Even moreso, Frank's side of the experience. He's doing a routine repair job, when suddenly he is thrown out into space, his air hose torn. He can hear the flow of air get slower...and slower...as it gets colder in his suit...and harder to breathe...

* The famous "Beyond the Infinite" sequence is more [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome awe-inspiring]] than scary, but when it's intercut with images of Dave [[GoMadFromTheRevelation FREAKING OUT]], it gets really creepy.

* Right before Bowman and Poole [[spoiler:destroy HAL,]] there's a brief moment as the two work out their plan outside the base, cutting off all audio from the inside so HAL won't hear. You think it'd work, but, then, [[HellIsThatNoise a low, eerie hum is heard, and picks up in tempo.]] Then there's repeat, increasingly tight shots between HAL's camera lens and Bowman and Poole talking animatedly, finally settling on two extreme closeups of HAL's camera and Bowman and Poole's lips moving animatedly. Then it sinks in. ''''''HAL CAN READ LIPS.'''''

* 2010 gives us the underlying Cause of the Discovery Massacre: [[spoiler: some MORONIC Politician, or LITERALLY lethally incompetent high-ranking military ,Officer gave HAL an IMPERATIVE (read top priority) order (lie your ass off about the TRUE reason of the mission, i.e inspect the monolith)that directly Contradicted his primary programming (to provide Accurate information to his Users in a timely manner). those people died simply due to, no, were MURDERED BY a Government obsessed with "need to know" information control-that was too stupid to Read HAL's manual. ]]
