Added DiffLines:

* The film's ending. It's revealed many members of the audience are wearing Nazi uniforms, a foreshadowing of what's to come for the country and, by extension, for the world. Even creepier, the credits roll over a freeze frame of this scene, ''in complete silence''.


** The camera slowly panning down to reveal the swastika on his armband. Even when you know it's coming, it's chilling.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29Mg6Gfh9Co The movie version of "Tomorrow Belongs to Me"]] starts off disarmingly pleasant, but swiftly becomes horrifying when the audience of common, ordinary people begin standing up and singing along [[HumansAreBastards and become swept up in the nationalist fervor]], and it becomes obvious to the audience that these ordinary people ''are'' the grassroots support that allowed the Nazis to rise.

[[AdultFear There's even a deliberate shot of a child who can't be any older than three starting to sing along with the adults]].

Added DiffLines:

** Even scarier near the end of the scene it cuts to the Emcee who looks up toward the viewer then smiles a eerie smile and nods his head slowly at the viewer as if telling the viewer yes they can still control the people in any way and we can control you too to join us! The make up makes him even more creepy! Shudder.

Added DiffLines:

* The reprise of "Tomorrow Belongs to Me," when just about all of the guests at the engagement party begin singing along. As Fraulein Schneider later says, "I can no longer dismiss the Nazi Party. Now they are my friends and neighbors."
