Halloween is upon us, which means that it's time to throw on your costume and binge on some candy. OK, a lot of candy. For the cinephiles out there, it's also time to start thinking about all of the best scares that Hollywood has to offer. Ever since the beginning of the genre, horror has managed to deliver consistent scares and terrify movie-going audiences in a variety of different ways.

That being said, not all of the best movie scares come from horror movies. Over the years, several non-horror films have managed to terrify us and force us to sleep with the lights on. We've once again compiled a list of some of the most terrifying moments in non-horror movies. (See the first list here!) Sure, these aren't traditional horror movies, but that doesn't make them any less scary.

Temple of Doom

Mola Ram's Sacrifice - Temple of Doom

For all of its lighthearted adventure, the Indiana Jones franchise has never shied away from some seriously creepy set pieces. One of the most terrifying moments in the entire series comes during Temple of Doom -- which is easily the darkest entry in the entire franchise. When Indy, Short Round, and Willie sneak into Mola Ram's temple, the titular archaeologist realizes that his theories about the underground cult are true as Mola Ram offers up human sacrifices to the Hindu god, Kali, by ripping out a victim's heart with his bare hands. The sequence proved so brutal and so terrifying that it eventually led to the creation of the PG-13 rating.
