Added DiffLines:

** Not to mention how unnerving it is to realize that Jaws has ''been there the whole time'' watching them.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[VillainWithGoodPublicity Hugo Drax]]'', full stop. The idea that a beloved, seemingly patriotic working-class boy made good is secretly a fanatical Nazi out for revenge is blood-curdling enough. Then, when Bond and Gala are captured and Drax is finally able to drop the facade, we start to see what a truly deranged sadist he ''really'' is as he cheerfully recounts his various crimes with great pride, taking enormous pleasure at the thought of the huge death, destruction and misery his Moonraker missile will cause.


* The deaths of the scientists who accidentally knock over a vial of nerve gas is horrifying, especially the music during that scene. The scene building up to it is tense as well, with no background music while Bond sneaks into the lab. An added bit of horror to this scene is the fact that Bond look disturbed when witnessing the scientists die. It's likely that ''he actually had no idea'' the liquid in the vial would turn into deadly gas when exposed to air. Further, there was nothing he could do to save them.

** When it first appears, it's a tad unsettling but goes along well as an innocuous party mask. But then Bond and Manuela make their way out of the festivities...and the mask, while still in the background, ''looks directly at the camera''.

* Drax's fate, ThrownOutTheAirlock. Let's hope Bond's dart's poison kills him before outer space does.

Added DiffLines:

* Bond's fight with Drax's python can be quite unnerving, considering that a python that size is ''easily'' capable of killing a full-grown man.


** An added bit of FridgeHorror to this scene is the fact that Bond likely was ''never aware'' of the fact that his smoking information out of her is what would get her killed, and made no effort to whisk her away before she could come to harm at Drax's hands.

** And who put the vial on the thing the scientists were moving? ''Bond''. That's right, [[Creator/RogerMoore the guy]] who protested kicking Locque's car off a cliff in cold blood [[Film/ForYourEyesOnly in the next movie]] was A-Ok with killing these guys in an even worse manner in this one.
** It's doubtful that Bond's A-Ok with it: he does look disturbed when witnessing the scientists die. It's not like he had any idea the liquid in the vial would turn into deadly gas when exposed to air. Further, there was nothing he could do to save them.
