Just in time for Halloween, Slacktory put together a supercut of scenes where the monster, killer, or supernatural being appears right behind a victim or protagonist. The films range from all varieties of horror (Psycho, The Descent) to slashers (Friday The 13th, Part III, Halloween), to adventure (The Return Of The King, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest), to science fiction (Mission To Mars). Truly, every genre has liberally borrowed the technique—there’s even a clip from Scrooged. So send this to that one really jumpy friend who clicks on all the surprise scare links anyway.
