"Where Have All the Children Gone?" is easily one of the scariest dances to date, if not the scariest. The accompaniment isn't music, it's actually spoken-word, which makes it all the creepier. All the girls are wearing the exact same white dress, Vivi-Anne pushes Mackenzie on a creepy swing, and if it wasn't scary enough, the girls start disappearing one by one after some act of suicide with subtle hintsas to how they killed themselves. Nia clutches her throat, Chloe clutches her stomach, Maddie slits her wrist, Paige jumps offstage, and so on.
Probably the creepiest part is the very end, where all of the girls have disappeared, but the previously used swing is still swinging by itself...
"I See the Kite Flying", the "sequel" to "Where Have All the Children Gone?". In this one, each girl is a mental patient, rocking back and forth or hitting themselves in the head. The same monotone returns for this one, making it just as eerie.
The musical accompaniment, "Describing the Car Crash", is Nightmare Fuel all on its own. The eerie and ominous sound, the loud bang that sounds every few seconds, and the fact that it repeats over and over for the two most frightening minutes of your life.
You could see a look of near-horror on Abby's face watching the dance. If Abby's scared by one of her own dances, you know it's scary.
This image of Mackenzie laying "dead" on the ground, with blood all over her hand.
Right before Kelly attacks her, you can see her gnashing her teeth and apparently trying to bite her.
The "Amber Alert" routine, which has been said to nearly rival "The Last Text" in its level of Adult Fear-filled storytelling. If the idea alone (child abduction) isn't enough to creep you out, the actual dance itself will send chills down your spine, with special note going to the ending. Mackenzie has been killed by her "abductors", and Maddie approaches her. She is smiling. She lifts up Mackenzie's head (which had been hanging downwards), and recoils in horror when she realizes that her sister is dead. She then runs away.
Abby has now managed to upstage "Prom Queen" with a Jojo solo that's even more terrifying: "Straighten Up", which has the poor girl dancing in a straitjacketuntil halfway through.
Maddie's Lizzie Borden solo. Everything about it is creepy, with her disturbing ghostly facial makeup, blood-stained white dress, and the fact that she's holding a bloody ax throughout the dance.
Special mention to the music, which is already scary to listen to; it's a mixture between an Ominous Music Box Tune and brooding, roaring synths that sound a few pegs softer than something off a Nine Inch Nails bootleg. It's even creepier once you start to hear the words. Note that these are said by a child in the song.
He's behind you He's watching you He's coming
Suicide Hotline, a dance that's equal parts grim and sad considering its subject matter. It has Kalani in a white dress dancing alongside Brynn, Kendall, and Nia in black dresses and ends with Kalani running away as her friends try to stop her. The phone then rings, and as Kendall picks it up we only hear a dead tone...
Elliana and Liliana's solos from Episode 9 were based off two of Jojo's Season 5 solos. Elliana's solo "Carrie" was based off Jojo's solo "Prom Queen," complete with the blood all over her. Liliana's solo "Straight Escape" was based off Jojo's solo "Straighten Up" where Liliana had to dance with a straitjacket on, just like Jojo did.
Please note that these solos were called Jojo's solos on crack by Abby herself. That is how extreme it is.
The group dance "The Chosen One" from Episode 13. The concept is the following: The farmers hold a lottery every year to have a "chosen one." That chosen one is stoned to death in order for the rest of the village to have good crops for the rest of the year.
