Love it Rocko! I'd say this line is in my top 3 for sure because you no the word "ever" shouldn't be taken lightly when it's coming from the mob. It's a really powerful threat and a great choice.

To be quite honest, I would qualify Michael's line as a warning, not a threat. The real threat was "I know it was you Fredo, you broke my heart. You broke my heart" especially since it came with the kiss of death. fredo felt so threatened he left the place immediately after that.

One threat for the first film would be:
"Only don't tell me you're innocent, because it insults my intelligence... and makes me very angry"

Love it Bert! Nicholson's delivery is beyond manic here, and his gradual descent into madness culminates here perfectly! It's a great sequence altogether. Thanks for the vote.

"Go ahead, make my day"

And one I've never forgotten ever since I was a kid, no it's not from some crime lord or gun wielding bad guy, it's from a loving and protective mother played by Jodie Foster in her movie "Little Man Tate" and yes, it would have scared the **** out of me
"If anything happens to him,  anything at all, l'll kill you. Now, I don't mean that I'll just hurt you. I mean that I'll kill you"

Thanks Elm, I'll think twice about it including it. That distinction will be important to make on this one.

So I suggest you wipe that stupid smile off your face before I come over there and SMACK it off! You feeling strong, my friend? Call me elf one more time."
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels - Rory Breaker: "If you hold back anything, I'll kill ya. If you bend the truth or I think you're bending the truth, I'll kill ya. If you forget anything, I'll kill ya. In fact, you're gonna have to work very hard to stay alive, Nick. Now, do you understand everything I've just said? 'Cause if you don't, I'll kill ya! Now, Mr Bubble and Squeak, you may enlighten me."
Holy Grail - French Solider: "Go away or I shall taunt you a second time!"

You get sarcastic with me again and I will stuff so much cotton wool down your fucking throat it'll come out your arse like the tail on a Playboy bunny."

I don't think you should use the Dirty Harry quote you have - it's not a threat, its a dangerous question.

'Great poll, Kyle. There are a quite a few that are really creepy so I could vote for a few, although the popsicle quote makes my skin crawl. Then there are the quotes that, if someone else said it, it'd be scary but because of the character who said, it's extra-special-scary. :)

I'm not sure, but the "You" in all caps might disqualify the poll from being on the homepage; if it doesn't matter to you that it qualifies for the homepage, just leave it, but if you want it to have a chance, it's probably safer to change it to "You" without the caps. And, of course, once it goes live, you could request a re-push if you want to.

Ruby,

I agree, the extra-special scary ones are all frightening on their own terms!

Thank you for the homepage advice, I've corrected "YOU"; I saw Rafael_M use "You" in all caps for one his suggestions and I liked the emphasis it placed for the voter - but a chance at the homepage can never be passed up, now can it?

Nice dedication. :) Are you sure you don't want to include it in the list as well?

And perhaps you could also add a question to the intro?

Kyle thanks for using so many of my suggestions. I will upload a photo for Rory. Just curious why you aren't using Inigo Montoya?

Jen,

He totally slipped my mind! But I've added him and will re-quest a re-push. It would be nice if this got on the homepage as a result, he'd actually stand a chance in the votes.
