This list expresses my personal opinion.

As Listal only allows us to include a movie once per list, I could only include one scene per movie. Because of that, some of the scariest scenes of all time (the 'Redrum' & the 'Here's Johnny' scenes in THE SHINING, for example) are not included, simply because there's a scarier one from the same movie on the list.
_______________________________________
ATTENTION: All Youtube clips might contain potential spoilers, but clips that contain major spoilers are going to be preceded by a warning.
_______________________________________
Suggestions are always welcome but this list only contains scenes from movies that I've seen. So if a scene that you like isn't on the list it's because one of the following reasons:

1- I haven't seen the film.
2- I forgot about the scene.
3- I don't find it scary enough to make it to the list.
4- There's a scarier scene from the same movie on the list.
_______________________________________
Inspired by retroCRUSH, I've also used some of their titles to name the scenes. Check out their list, it's great and there's no 'one scene/movie' restriction, so you can find different stuff over there.
