Nightmare Fuel: Monsters, Inc.
  • This line from Waternoose: " I'll kidnap a thousand children before I let this company die, and I'll silence anyone who gets in my way!"
  • Overlapping with Paranoia Fuel, Randall uses his invisibility to absolutely chilling effect against Sulley. Since he's invisible to the audience too, we're held up in suspense once he disappears and starts scampering all over the place. An especially effective moment is when Sulley and Boo are hiding on the scare floor... and Randall materializes right beside them.
  • The Scream Extractor. It's demonstrated that it extracts the breath as well as the screaming.
  • When the monsters harvest screams from little kids, a monitor displays how much screams they have collected with Celia announcing such events in a deadpan fasion. Strangely similar to the telescreen. Creepy.
  • On the DVD, there was an Easter Egg that showed the giraffe used to measure height on Boo's wall moving, then peeking around her door to look straight at the camera.
  • On the DVD, on the second disc in the "Humans Only" Menu, watch the production tour all the way through. You will then be treated to a bunch of doors, each containing an Easter Egg. One of them is Sulley scaring the simulation room kid.
  • The scene of Sully being strangled by an invisible Randall. It's mixed in with the comedy of Mike being completely oblivious, but hearing his breath slowly leak out as well as the dramatic music is very disturbing.
