31 Days of Creepy Scenes, #29: "Welcome home, @%*!"

They've given us nightmares, given us chills, made us cringe, made us laugh, made us gag, and made us stare at the screen in awe: these are the scenes that pop into our minds when we think of great Horror Films, and we love them all.

*We recommend that if you've never seen these scenes before, that you experience them for the first time unspoiled in the movies that they come from, if you can. With that in mind, we'll try to be as spoiler-free as possible while discussing them; try, being the key word here. 

Way back in 1982, before movies like The Conjuring, Sinister, and Insidious were scaring the ever-living shit out of moviegoers, there was a little movie called The Entity that struck fear into the hearts of audiences with its terrifying take on the Hunted House movie.

Based on a true story (if you believe that sort of thing), The Entity tells the harrowing tale of a woman who is stalked, assaulted, and repeatedly raped by an unseen assailant, which turns out to be an malevolent-as-fuck poltergeist. She flees her house, and it follows her; she resists and fights back, but the attacks continue. Eventually, a team of doctors helps her to "get rid of" the entity, thus allowing her to return to a normal, abuse-free life once again...

Or so they think.

After her ordeal is believed to be over, she packs up her kids and belongings, intent on once again moving far away from the scene of her ordeal. Before leaving, she decides to take one last tour of the house, as a sort of cathartic goodbye or something... and then the front door closes by itself, and a rough, disturbing voice says "Welcome home, cunt."

Now, whether this kind of thing scares you or not is completely up to you, but if it does, then you'll be hard pressed to find a creepier scene in any Haunted House movie. All I can tell you is that as a grown man, this scene still sends a shiver up my spine, and make the hair on my neck stand on end.

If you want a genuinely scary movie to watch this Halloween Season, then The Entity is your ticket.

We couldn't find a video clip of this scene online to share with you. Sorry.
