* Major Toht threatening to burn Marion with a poker in The Raven bar. Heck, everything with Toht is terrifying due to the RealitySubtext that surrounds him.
-->'''Toht''': Fraulein Ravenwood, let me show you what I am used to...

* The (in)famous "opening of the Ark" sequence from the finale is incredibly jarring for a viewer who has thus far enjoyed an action/adventure movie with a relatively light tone and BloodlessCarnage. The shot of the melting face - quickly followed by an ''exploding head'' - would have been enough to give plenty of theatre-goers nightmares, although it is [[{{Narm}} hardly as effective now considering how much it looks like a model]].
