There's a difference between a sheet ghost jumping out of a closet shouting "BOO!" and being genuinely scared

The polar opposite of Nightmareish scenes. Something meant to be truly terrifying (or at least somewhat frightening or disturbing) which instead comes off as stupid, laughable, cute, or all of them. Often caused by Special Effects Failure or Stock Sound Effects; sometimes, for older titles with now-outdated special
effects. Of course, when used intentionally, it could be an Intended Audience Reaction.

Perhaps most notably in finding out that the sinister deity is in fact a old man who is actually senile.

I liked this article.
When this happens in a movie it is funny and gives the views at times a much needed break.

I like how you pinted this aspect out.

Good article
