Creepier Scene?

Between the following scenes:

1) "Night Terrors" - Crusher alone in the morgue with all the bodies shifting and sitting up.

2) "Schisms" - Riker and Rager in the alien's laboratory in a different dimension.

Re: Creepier Scene?

I say the scene in "Schisms". It was surreal, alien, and being put on the operating table by aliens has a strange pop-culture familiarity, but it's handled extremely well, I think. Not that the morgue scene wasn't, I just think it wasn't quite as surreal or...well, creepy.

Night Terrors for me, because the first time I saw the scene, it definitely had more impact on me than the other. I think I actually jumped a little.

Re: Creepier Scene?

I vote for Schisms, but not the scene you mentioned. I found the scene in the holodeck where they recreated their experience really creepy. It was a long detailed scene that slowly built more and more tension. By the end when they were all in the dark, with a spotlight shining over them, and that spooky clicking all around now that was creepy.

"Night Terrors". The first time I saw that scene, it scared the hell out of me. I flipped on all the lights!

Ooh, yeah, "Schisms" (though "Night Terrors" was pretty darn creepy, too). That clicking noise....brrrrrrrr!

Conspiracy has both of them wrapped up for creepy scenes.

I never really liked Night Terrors and didn't feel the episode was particularly well done. So for me Schisms was the obvious choice.

Voted for "Night Terrors", that scene made my flesh crawl even thinking about it (this poll actually reminded me of it for the first time in ages). "Schisms" had a lot of creepy scenes too, but they didn't have the jump factor NT had.

The scene in "Night Terrors" startled me the first time I saw it; it was really creepy.

The "Schisms" holodeck scene wasn't effective for me because I got distracted thinking about how the holodeck skipped a bunch of steps in changing the table completely instead of following the instructions the characters were giving.

Re: Creepier Scene?

For me 'night terrors' was more creepy. With Riker on an alien operating table you know nothing serious is going to happen to him, it was predictable, so for me there wasn't very much tension.

However, Crusher surrounded by the living dead was unexpected, you dreaded the thought that perhaps the corpse's would remove the blankets and attack her or something =] Anyway dead people are always more scary than aliens imo.

Re: Creepier Scene?

It funny, I think the creepiest scenes in TNG are holodeck recreations of nightmare events. In Night Terrors when they are recreating the operating table from traces of memory.

Anyother creepy scene: The ep where George turns into a glowing lizard. In the holodeck when they pause the several year old footage and realize there is a shadow there that doesn't correspond to anyone in the area. It helps that Geordi has an attack right after the creapy shape of the alien is produced.

Unfortuantly it hurts that invisible objects don't cast shadows.

Being invisible and all, they don't block light to produce shadows.

Creepy scene: I nominate the entire episode of "Frame of Mind."

Seriously, watching that episode makes me feel like I'm running a 106* fever and half-conscious.

Night Terrors, dead bodies always creep me out. Yes, even at funerals. So dead bodies suddenly sitting up. My heart stopped.
