    Black Hole (1979) the ending
    Scrooge (1970) the ghost of christmas future — when I grew up, I watched the TV version, so I never saw the scenes in hell until recently, but just the grave scene alone scared the snot out of me.

    It’s also an excellent film, with catchy, memorable music numbers.
