Name a movie in which the opening scene shocked you?

I am watching Unhinged with Russell Crowe at the moment, and the opening scene is where he's parked outside his ex-wife's house. He uses an axe to smash the door, causing her and her new boyfriend to shriek in terror. The woman's screams and just when Crowe pours gas liquid on him is intense.
Another shocking opening scene would be Intermission (2003) where Colin Farrell beats up the grocery store chick after they flirt.

Anyone wanna share some shocking opening scenes?

Saving Private Ryan. I'd always heard it was a difficult movie to watch, but goddamn. I wasn't expecting an opening quite so brutal.

That explosion right at the beginning actually made me jump (talk about starting things off with a bang).

Re: Name a movie in which the opening scene shocked you?

For me it is the opening scene oof the original Halloween. Today, a brother killing his sister is not all that unusual, especially if you are a liberal, but when I first watched it as a kid, it was unthinkable. Thanks to liberals, we have progressed as a nation.
