So we spent the last 20 days sharing with you our picks for the Most Iconic Horror Scenes
of all time, which are relatively easy, given the actual definition of "iconic," but this Halloween Night we thought we'd toss out twenty ... lesser-known sequences. Cult-style movie moments, one might say. Your contributors on this list are regulars Scott Weinberg and Peter Hall and, once again
, Zack Carlson and Lars Nilsen, our buddies from the Alamo Drafthouse
who played along with our Horror Sequence Iconography.
As expected, the following twenty scenes are not
iconic. They're not even what you'd call ironic. They are, however, some of our very favorite (drum roll please) Cult Scenes of Relative Infamy!
