Nightmare Fuel / Rear Window

Go To
  • Thorwald's off-screen murdering of his wife and how he apparently chopped her body parts into individual pieces. There's a brief implication that the item he had stored in his hatbox was her head.
  • The bit where Thorwald attacks Lisa. Just how close was she to his wife's fate before the cops interrupted them?
  • That moment where Thorwald looks through the window and locks eyes with Jeff is bone chilling.
  • Jeff answering his phone and realizing from the hang-up that it was Thorwald calling and being able to do nothing but sit and wait while he hears distant doors slamming and footsteps approaching. You can almost hear Jeff's heart pounding. Or is it yours?

How well does it match the trope?
