In 2004, Bravo counted down the 100 Scariest Movie Moments. The list had a fairly even mix of movies from different periods and sub-genres, including the silent screamers, the {{Universal}} monster movies, Italian {{giallo}}, slasher pics and even Asian horror. Moreover, the list included a few movies outside the horror genre because they contained classic examples of NightmareFuel. The list is as follows (spoilers abound):
