Nightmare Fuel / Mulholland Dr.
I hope that I never see that face, ever, outside of a dream.
- The infamous "man behind Winkie's" scene featuring two guys, a diner, and something resembling a zombie hobo out back.
- Also a little meta-Harsher in Hindsight. Remember when the one guy says "I hope I never see that face outside of a dream"? Flash forward 5 years to Inland Empire and, well... we get to find out exactly how he was feeling.
- Now flash-forward 16 years from Mulholland and compare that creature to the Woodsmen.
- Sierra Boniokayta. This is when the film takes a much darker turn, as Betty and Rita investigate the apartment of Diane Selwyn, looking for answers regarding Rita's true identity. Do they find anything? Yes: Diane's decaying corpse in a bed. The neighbor's knocking on the door somehow makes it worse.
- Irene and her companion. Despite initially coming across as a lovely elderly couple who wish Betty luck at the beginning of the film, we later cut back to them quietly traveling in a limosine with ghastly smiles plastered on their faces. In their next appearance they proceed to torment a hysterical Diane until she shoots herself.
- Llorando. What starts as an ominous stage performance gradually shifts into a Tear Jerker, and somehow becomes more terrifying the longer it goes on. The film goes straight into Mind Screw territory just after.
