The Crying Game's pivotal penis scene has topped a new movie poll of shocking moments.

The scene in question, where Stephen Rea's character is confronted by the naked truth that the dancer he's in love with is a man (Jaye Davidson), beat scenes in 1931 classic The Public Enemy and Alien to top Premiere magazine's new The 25 Most Shocking Moments In Movie History list. The Top 10 are:

1. The Crying Game (IRA member Fergus confronts his 'girlfriend's' member)

2. The Public Enemy (The dead body of James Cagney's gangster character Tom Powers is dumped on his family's doorstep)

3. Alien (Alien baby jumps out of John Hurt's stomach during a dinner scene)

4. Psycho (Vera Miles' character finds her sister's skeletal corpse in the basement of the Psycho house)

5. Bonnie + Clyde (Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty's Bonnie + Clyde are ambushed and killed by police in the country)

6. Reservoir Dogs (Michael Madsen's Mr Blonde slices off a police officer's ear as he dances to Steeler's Wheel's Stuck in the Middle with You)

7. Deliverance (Ned Beatty's character is anally raped by a hillbilly)

8. Carrie (Title character's dead hand grabs Amy Irving from beyond the grave)

9. The Exorcist (Linda Blair's possessed Regan repeatedly stabs herself in the crotch with a bloody crucifix)

10. Un Chien Andalou (A woman's eye is sliced by a razor blade in the arty Salvador Dali/Luis Buñuel movie).

11. Saving Private Ryan- Dude where's my arm?

12. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre- And up on the meathook you go!

13. The Usual Suspects (Revelation that pathetic con man Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey) has masterminded the whole convoluted Kobayashi-Keyser Soze-Dean Keaton swindle comes as a slowly unraveling stunner.

Verbal has finished his tale, which has taken more twists than Mulholland Drive, and detective Kujan (Chazz Palminteri) disparagingly dismisses him. Verbal collects his belongings and limps out of the police station. And then he transforms - his stride becomes the confident swagger of the sociopath who engineered it all.)

14. The Godfather- Is that a horse head in your bed or are you just happy to see me?

15. Don't Look Now- Yikes! You're not my long dead daughter in a red rain coat!?

16. Pink Flamingos- Dog takes a dump on camera. Cross dresser eats it on camera.

17. Star Wars the Empire Strikes Back- Who's your Daddy?

18. Planet of the Apes- Statue of Liberty? What are you doing here?

19. Once upon a Time in the West- Henry Fonda kills a kid... And it's not Jane Fonda.

20. The Shining- All work and no play... Make Jack a Dull Boy... Or something like that.

21. Audition- Why's that big mail sack moving and growling like a lion? I thought this was supposed to be a romantic movie?

22. The Sixth Sense- Bruce Willis figures out why his breath won't fog up a window anymore.

23. S.O.B.- Julie Andrews let's out her balloons for the first time. A thousand young male fans of Marry Poppins suddenly start poppin'.

24. Jaws- We're gonna' need a bigger boat....

25. Where's Poppa?- Ass kiss 1970.

That list is ok, but it was pretty shocking when I got executed, I was so convincing everyone thought I would get that final stay. I didn't. Neely pulling my wig off was pretty shocking, too.

I hope there are no people reading this who haven't seen 'The usual suspects' and want to see it one day :o

I'd like to add the scene where 'From dusk till dawn' changes from road movie to vampyre movie.

4. Psycho (Vera Miles' character finds her sister's skeletal corpse in the basement of the Psycho house) I thought that was the old mother's skeleton :scratch:

Yes, it was. I think Marion Crane got stuffed in the trunk of her car, and the car pushed into the nearby pond.

Yeah, that was genuinely shocking - I stil go urrgh when I think of it.

What about the cross-cutting between scenes in Silence of the Lambs, when Agent Starling was going to the psycho's house and the FBI were breaking into another house somwehrer else? I'll never forget the shock when I realised they were going into the wrong house and she was alone with that nutcase - him watching her through the night-vision goggles is just terrifying.

I've seen 17 & Sixth Sense was still the most shocking. I felt so lame after I saw it again for not having figured out the twist. It seems so obvious in hindsight.

I hated that awful character. And, excuse me, but Billy Zane is like way hotter than that girly-man, pre-pubescent girl, Leonardo di Caprio. She could have had the stud AND the bucks. Totally unreal plot there, if I was her, I would have been doing it day and night with Billy Zane, rocking his world.

let's not forget the fact that she couldn't force herself to scoot aside a little bit and share the piece of drift wood she was floating on with Jack.

and the Picassos that went down with the ship :sobbing:

If it were me, I'd be with Billy, with the diamond around my neck, surrounded by my fabulous paintings in my big mansion sipping martinis all day. :fiery:

Sally, that little piece of driftwood could barely hold that big, fat ASS of Rose's, so she was just saving herself.

Don't Look Now? Isn't that the movie with the sex scene that had supposedly real sex between Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland? Everyone was saying it was the first non-porn movie to show real sex between two actors. Wrong! They didn't see Burt Lancaster and I in The Swimmer. It was too R rated for the 1960s but in the DVD extras they show the full 53 minute sex scene - 100% real!

He was reluctant at first Hel but after I slipped him some pills he was an animal! He was so good that it was only last year that I eventually went to hospital to get surgery to have the carpet burns removed.

:eek:

Wow, hon, Howard Hughes was a whole lotta man, but I never had carpet burns! Largely because he did it to me in the shower because of that cleanliness hang-up of his. I had some tile-grout burns, does that count?

They still count Hel although is it true he was literally whitening the tile grout with a toothbrush during sex?

The most shocking scene for me ever is seeing Michael Myers in the movie Halloween first time with his mask on and then puting the sheet on and walking towards his next victim :bolt:

I agree with Number 3 too and also in that movie the scene where they chop off the head of that robot and he vomits all over...then they fix him and talk to him :scared:

The shower scene from Psycho scared me too...after you see that you always have a feeling someone is behind the curtain....But this reminds me of Nightmare On Elm Street and the scenes where the girl is taking a bath and while sleeping in the tub suddenly Freddy makes a hole in the ground of the tub and tries to pull her down in that hole and drown her. :bolt:

Also in Nightmare On Elm Street...Johnny Depp sleeps with the TV on his lap on the bed then suddenly Freddy pulls him down in a hole through the bed....after some seconds you see a fontain of blood streaming out of the hole and hitting the ceiling and then covering the whole room...:bolt:

Anyone watched Saw? The ending... it shocked me and the entire audience in the cinema.

I think the writers, I also think they were the guys who made the movie ‘Saw’ got a little inspiration for a particular scene in their movie (you know which scene I mean, the one with the saw ;) ) from a little known movie called ‘Nightwatch’. You should take the chance to watch this movie, it’s great. :D

There is no way on Earth that Vader's revelation to Luke is not the number one shocking movie moment ever. The original Star Wars was the biggest hit of all time and they took a HUGE risk having the audience wait 3 years to find out what happens. It was pretty damn shocking to think that Luke's father was this wonderful, good person who was betrayed and murdered by the evil Lord Vader and then all of a sudden find out they are the same person!

The shower scene from Psycho should be #2.

.....the shower scene in Psycho changed cinema though. It was a landmark piece of work that film, makes it more special.

I cannot believe George Lazenby's Bond isn't in there. Shocking(ly bad acting....) ;)
