Science fiction and fantasy take us deep into the heart of the unknown — and there's nothing scarier than the unknown, really. So it shouldn't be surprising that genre movies are full of terrifying scenes. But what's the absolute scariest moment from any science fiction or fantasy movie?

We provided our own list, linked above — but what's your pick? Please include a picture or clip for your scary moment. And please mention the name of the movie, and why that scene was so horrifying. Thanks!
