People Are Sharing Their “Most Traumatizing” Single Shots From Movies & TV

Do you remember the first really scary movie you watched? I’ll never forget watching Signs too young and being traumatized by the scene where the alien walks past a birthday party (if you haven’t seen it, it’s number 9 on this list).
