    I know they are sometimes lacking in content with these lists but I wish they wouldn’t include the animated shows in these types of lists because CG never has nor ever will be scary ever. Look at any legit horror film list and there’s not one computer generated film among them. Same with straight up action films.

      Good point. I have enjoyed TCW from a story telling perspective, but find it a little difficult to accept as cannon simply because it is animated and therefore IMO “unreal” (I think the “resurrecting” of Darth Maul was probably my tipping point). On another subject, what’s your opinion on the robotic hand resting on R2? It appears to be night, and the scene appears to be of recent destruction… possibly the night after the battle we see in the final trailer…?

        Yeah, I wasn’t a fan of resurrecting a dead Sith Lord either, Especially since from what we know now he actually survived The Clone Wars which is just wrong since that would mean more than two existed at one time. That’s probably the only scene we ever see of Luke in the film seeing as how we haven’t seen him in any other scenes and the only part that seems to be able to fit him in is at the very end of the film.

      I almost wish they could have included the Dark Forces games though. Those games had some crazy scary moments:

      – the dianogas in the Anoat City sewers
      – the dead bodies throughout the destroyed Rebel base
      – the Dark Troopers
      – the kell dragons

        Especially when playing at night. The Dianoga in Shadows Of The Empire was a huge pain the ass too and pretty gross looking as well.

          I loved shadows of the empire still one of the best Star Wars games. Yea the wampas and dianogas were creepy

            I never understood the hate towards it just because they had so many types of gameplay in it. Wasn’t there a code you cold play as one too?

            I didn’t even know there was hate for it lol yea there was wampa stompa 🙂

            I never met any in person myself. Just reviewers. It had a great soundtrack too!

    The only times I’ve been legitimately frightened by Star Wars:
    1. Mynock jump scare.
    2. The Sando Aqua Monster from Episode I.

      I agree with the Mynock. Mainly due to the creepy sound. Hope TFA keeps true to it’s practical effects commitment when it comes to creatures.

    Great moments but not very scary though the zombie geonosians were really terrifying.

  • October 30, 2015 at 2:09 am

    I was terrified of the wampa as a kid. I was convinced it was real!

    • October 30, 2015 at 4:10 am

      Again I think Ben Burtt gets a lot of credit here and now that he’s back I hope we get a lot more moments like that in the ST.

    For me, the Emperor at the end of Return of the Jedi scared the living shit out of me.

    • October 30, 2015 at 6:31 am

      Ian McDiarmid is probably the best actor of the saga by far and he was only in his 30’s while making Jedi too. He got a little campy at times in III but it was a relief to see one of the cast members of that film actually be interesting to watch. They should cast more stage actors like him for future films rather than generic movie stars who can’t act.

    Uhh? what? The only scary thing in star wars was the geonosian zombie story arc… at least to me… the vision wasn’t at all scary…

  • October 30, 2015 at 3:19 pm

    The only things here that actually scared me was the Lynok, everything else is either a fight or interesting plot developement, while the visions pose unsettling concepts, I wouldn’t go as far as to call them “scary”.
    By that same definition, a video of Hitler at Nuremburg could be called scary – which it is, but not in the same way – not in the Halloween, screams of terror sense of “scary”.

    However, the dancer getting eaten by the Rancor was I think the first time as a kid that I encountered psychological horror.
    If Star Wars was more realistic, with more believable actors and perhaps character development for the dancer, and that scene played again, it would be R-Rated, but because it’s shown simple and cartoon-like, people shrug it off.

    So Lynok because I was legitimately afraid of coming in contact with them,
    and Dancer vs Rancor because sex-slavery is scary as shit.

    Everything else was theoretically scary, but then again, The Happening is theoretically scary, so not much of an achievement there. :/
