Everything that includes The Dark Riders chasing poor hobbits at night :P That always give me the creeps.

^^ Agreed.

The Moria part, when the fellowship is reading that old book they found, and of course the whole Shelob's lair chapter are both very horrifying.

Is there any sequence that you find particularly frightening, thrilling, or suspenseful?

On my first reading of the books....

  • Frightening: In Moria when the Balrog was coming, I got the sense this was some ancient evil when Legolas cried in fear 'A Balrog of Morgoth'
  • Thrilling: Battle of Helms Deep - Well described. Better than the Battle of Pelennor Fields in many ways, though Tolkien covered death in war better in Pelennor.
  • Suspensful: The Paths of the Dead - It was just creepy, especially when they saw (who I presumed) Baldor in the cave. And the whole oathbreaking and the Stone of Erech and all.

^^ Agreed. Battle of Helms Deep is the most thrilling battle in Lotr. It should be on my list.

When Bilbo sees the Ring around Frodo's neck. I've seen it a hundred times and it still scares me. Lol!

@Elfqueen4-Yeah, that kind a scared me too when I first saw it. I was like "O.O!" I was a little suprised cause it seemed like a tad bit of horror in this non-horror movie. But it was perfect for the moment. ;D

The most frightening moment for me was actually when Galadriel lights up in the first movie and gives her "In place of a dark Lord you would have a queen!..." speech. That greenish difference effect on her was just kinda stressful to me the first time. :S It scared me, lol.

^^ Yep.. I screamed when I first saw the Bilbo-turning-into-gollum part.

(Btw.. should this be on the movies-section..?)

For me, it was definitely Weathertop. When I first read that sequence I was either breathing really hard or not breathing at all. I still automatically clutch my left shoulder when I reread or watch that scene.

I think all the battle scenes are theilling (a guy thing perhaps) but I think the parts where it focuses on a characters death/ near death is suspensfull like when frodo is dying from being stabbes at weather top.

I thought the Fellowship heading towards the Bridge of Khazad-dum was scary. The music added to that sense and when the path started to crumble I got a feeling of despair.

Another part I found scary was when the Hobbits were hiding under the tree roots and the Nazgul was just inches away from them.

Hmmm,,,this is book discussion, isn't it?

Yeah, I forget about that a lot and mix and match things from the movies and books. No worries though!
