Halloween Movies: 5 Bath Scenes That’ll Get Your Heart Racing
This gruesome bath scene which features crawling leech-like creatures going in for the kill is more revolting than horrific. It’s got us thinking about why bathrooms tend to be so prevalent in horror films, and we think it has something to do with intimacy – and probably vulnerability. Forget weapons to defend yourself, all you have for protection is a bar of soap at most, or in Kylie’s (Tania Saulnier) case, a hair curling wand.
A true classic, the shower scene in Hitchcock’s black and white psychological horror film was revolutionary at the time, and it still gives us chills today. Although cinematography wasn’t advanced enough to feature a knife cutting through human flesh realistically back then, the film-editing is brilliant enough to make it not only believable, but truly scary.
Final Destination (2000)
Gripping to watch, Death returns as water in this wincingly-good bathroom scene featuring Tod (Chad Donella) – the first survivor of Flight 180 to die. Viewers are toyed with as Tod cuts himself with a razor, then uses a sharp, metal nose hair plucker, before reaching for the radio to pull the plug out (and we all suspect death by electrocution). Surviving all of these things, Death slips him up, literally, and he dies by asphyxia in the bathtub. Gulp.
A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)
One, two, Freddy’s coming for you. Three, four, better lock your door…
This scene opens with Nancy enjoying a lovely hot bubble bath, and we can’t help but notice her blue bath pillow and think what a great idea that is. Then, as she drifts softly to sleep, Freddy Krueger’s unmistakable clawed gloved hand emerges, pulling Nancy beneath the surface of the water into a deep and dark underworld.
- Dreamcatcher (2003)
If we learnt anything from Gary “Jonesy” Jones (Damian Lewis) in Dreamcatcher, it’s that you should never aggravate the smaller alien by trapping him in the bathroom; he’ll get out, and then you’ll have an even bigger evil alien to contend with. The alien, named Mr. Grey, stares him down for an excruciatingly uncomfortable amount of time, and we aren’t sure what’s going to happen next. The tension is unbearable, and then puff! In a burst of sickening red dust, Jonesy is possessed.
