Nightmare Fuel / Nurse Betty

Go To
  • Even though it's a romantic comedy, there's a scene where Morgan Freeman and Chris Rock tie up Betty's husband and proceed to scalp him in brutal detail.
  • The hitmen harshly assaulting friendly bartender Ellen and her good-natured main customer Merl for information. The way that the screen cuts to a red flashing light and Ellen and Merl are never seen again add to the chilling nature of the scene. Word of God is that the scene is specifically meant to remind the audience that the hitmen are dangerous people after so many scenes of them just bantering with each other.
