Say what you will about the episode, but this is a disturbing image: http://tng.trekcore.com/hd/albums/1x...vil_hd_302.jpg
I can't believe Frakes agreed to do that. Are his eyes actually OPEN there? It looks like it.

I think that's just a mold of his face. It's not like it actually moves, it's like a plastic shape of his face that's being rotated under the ick.

According to Frakes, he was actually pulled into that muck.

Eww...

Re: Scariest Episode of TNG

"Night Terrors" some good, scary moments in that. But I think the prize goes to "Schisms." Really good, creepy, eerie episode that makes the "alien abduction" story work in this setting. The recreation of the abduction room on the holodeck is a great, fantastic and chilling scene.

According to Frakes, he was actually pulled into that muck.
For going into it/coming out of it, sure. But I highly doubt that's his face (with open mouth) coming out of the stuff, especially considering -according to Frakes- it was made from Medamucil and printer's ink.

"Conspiracy" - Creepy bugs, exploding heads and a mysterious signal sent to parts unknown. I wish they had followed up on that.

"Frame of Mind".

And the part in "In Theory" where the lady is trapped in the floor of the deck.

Would they still use printer's ink to do something like this today?

Schisms and certain scenes in Violations especially when Crusher had to view Jack Crusher's dead body.

Frakes really was a "good egg", wasn't he! I remember reading that he swallowed some maggots in Conspiracy and he was (understandably) annoyed that it didn't make the final cut!

Oh, he was indeed pulled in. But when the face comes up, rotates, then sinks back down, that wasn't Frakes. After all, as it sinks back, you can see the goo coming up in the mouth, and unless Frakes was willing to swallow some and then regurgitate it on cue, that's not the sort of thing a person can do.

Choosing between Conspiracy and Q Who... Conspiracy wins for me, if slightly.

More like a creepy moment, than the whole episode, but Time Squared: when we see the grainy, distorted video log of Picard's shuttle leaving the shuttle bay, especially the shot of the figure of Riker looking on, then just moments later the Enterprise is destroyed, followed by the audio log of Picard reporting the destruction of the ship. The music it was set to was pretty eerie, too.

Another one, "Frame of Mind."

Maybe not "scary" but, man, it's like live-action fever dream, very, very unsettling.

Re: Scariest Episode of TNG

The holodeck scene in "Identity Crisis" is pretty creepy, when Geordi is trying to figure out where the extra shadow came from.

But the holodeck scene in "Schisms" takes the cake:

"I've been in this room before."

"We've all been in this room before."

Yeah, it was soooooo bad it almost scared me away...... from ever watching another episode.

I still think it scarred me psychologically, too.
