You’re sitting down to watch a movie or a TV show, getting engaged with the story and the characters, then you hear something. A line of dialogue that just strikes you cold. You recognize the words uttered but they manifest into a chill up and down your spine. An impulsive shake to your core.

From the words written on the script to the actor’s delivery, the right movie line can cut you deep into your soul with its creepiness, darkness, or badassery. One small line can turn a good movie into a fantastic one, especially if the line reveals some cold, dark truth about the character or life as a whole.

We asked Cracked readers to provide their picks of the creepiest, most disturbing lines and dialogue exchanges in movies and on television, and woo-boy, you didn’t disappoint us. Here are some of the top picks for creepiest movie lines that you’ve provided.
