- Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
- The opening scenes set an eerie tone with the skeletons of pirates, one still at a steering wheel while others are strewn about. Notable is the trio with blade wounds showing they clearly turned on each other and died fighting for their treasure.
- The haunting refrain of "Dead Men Tell No Tales" during the opening scenes is jarring.
- The original version of the Disneyland Paris ride flipped it around to show the skeleton scenes after the main storyline, with the idea this is where a life of piracy ultimately led.
- Every version has the famous scene of a trio of pirates in a jail cell trying to coax a dog to hand over the key. The Shanghai version? Those three skeletons are still reaching in vain to a skeleton dog in their cells, a chilling flip on the classic scene.
