SPECIAL MENTION - "The Walk": Wire walk
Out of every scary thing I've seen at the movies this year, the climactic sequence of Robert Zemeckis's otherwise so-so Philippe Petit biopic easily ranks as the most unnerving of all. Those with vertigo need not apply: the dramatization of Petit's (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) death-defying walk between the twin towers is very, very long and very, very visceral. With the aid of IMAX and 3-D, you truly feel like you're up on that wire with him -- and for an acrophobic like me, that is truly a nightmare.
