This scene reminds me of this one time when I was in a day care center in Japan and we were all watching Pokemon.

Outside of the obvious scenes in this one of the ones that I have always remembered is this one where the people come in and you hear all of the muffled voices even though none of them are talking. I saw this for the first time when I was young and for some reason this scene stood out to me as something disturbing.

One of the most famous scenes in film history.

And the great Michael Ironside. We're Not Worthy!

The exploding head scene was accomplished by filling a latex head with dog food and rabbit livers, and shooting it from behind with a 12-gauge shotgun.
