Nightmare Fuel: Melancholia
  • The opening sequence, which ends with the earth being completely destroyed.
    • Even disregarding the terrifying climax of the opening sequence it sure doesn't stint on disturbing imagery: The very first shot we see is Justine in her wedding dress, giving the audience a disconcerting Thousand-Yard Stare while dead birds fall from the sky in super slow-motion quite an opening shot...
  • Justine's simple, quiet speech on the fundamental evil of life on earth, and the fact that this is the only place in the universe where life is to be found — and soon it will be gone.
  • The look of sheer panic on Claire's face when she realises that Melancholia is moving towards Earth and not away from it.
