Nightmare Fuel: Titanic

  • The second half of the movie where the ship sinks is this and tearjerker fuel.
  • The deleted scene where Rose freaks out in her room before almost being Driven to Suicide.
  • Cal going berserk with the gun. While the scene itself is a bit over-the-top, just the thought of being chased by someone with a gun that's also taking shots at you at every turn is rather unpleasant.
  • Rose and Jack being trapped behind the gate while the ship is rapidly filling with water.
  • Jack and a lot of other people freezing to death. Especially the shot of the woman and her baby frozen to death in the water.
    • The intro to that sequence is bad enough. Rose surfaces, looking for Jack, and we get a slow pan out to show nearly 1500 people thrashing in the water, all of them screaming and wailing in horror and pain.
    • Made even worse when we cut to the lifeboat and Molly Brown pleads for them to go back and help, tearfully telling the women "those are your men out there!" We then pan over to Ruth, who's covering her ears in an attempt to block out the screams.
  • The captain's death.
  • The moment the ship's lights go out. Half of the ship out of the water has always looked like an unsettling image.
  • The ship breaking in two and the passengers' screams as the stern half plunges to the surface.
  • The first funnel's ropes snapping in slow motion as it begins to collapse and the metal can be heard raunching once again.
  • The drowned corpse floating around in the water just before the scene of plates collapsing.
  • The entire sequence from when the lookout spots the iceberg, and the crew desperately scramble to their posts to try to save the ship from hitting it. We know that their efforts will be in vain...
  • Those that are curious enough to track down the actual distress call broadcasted by Titanic during her sinking will certainly have trouble sleeping when they hear the message played out in Morse Code. If that's not enough, just imagine the countless wireless operators that heard the message, and were absolutely powerless to do anything about it.
