Sounds can soothe us, bring us joy, or excite us. But they can also frighten or disturb us.

Reddit user thedaringtomcat asked "What's the worst sound you've ever heard?"

Here are the spine tingling results.

Love

Cats mating.

Scream

Rpanicked agony he emitted when he thought I was dead.

A Fox doing a mating call at night is f'ing horrifying it basically sound like someone getting murdered.

Other Worldly

[rebelmouse-image 18360331 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The noise the aliens make in the remake of War of the Worlds. Makes me shudder.

Mournful

[rebelmouse-image 18360332 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I never knew a death rattle was real.

The worst sound I've ever heard was while I held my great grandmas hand as she was dying. It was bone cancer, stage 4. She went to the hospital not feeling quite right, a week later she died.

Haunting

[rebelmouse-image 18360333 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The scream and crunching from a co-worker getting his sleeve then arm caught in the 60 quart dough mixer at work.

Warning

[rebelmouse-image 18360334 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The high pitched noise they constantly play in certain areas that only kids ears can pick up to keep them away. I'm 24 and still hear it.

Mother

[rebelmouse-image 18360335 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My mother in law's night terrors. She's so loud it goes through the walls. It's like listening to a turkey get terrorized, then strangled.

Alarming

[rebelmouse-image 18360336 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'm terrified of the Amber Alert sound...

Death

[rebelmouse-image 18360337 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The scream of a dying animal.

Cruelty

[rebelmouse-image 18360338 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Apparently people used to castrate boys so that they would keep their singing voice forever, since their voice would never break. I think they were called Castratos? I heard a recording of one singing a few years ago and it was utterly haunting. The creepiest thing I've ever listened to.

Let's Talk

[rebelmouse-image 18360339 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"We need to talk." - From just about anyone. It could be relationship problems, job problems, my mom breaking bad news about my grandma... I've never heard those words in a good context.

Constant

[rebelmouse-image 18360340 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Tinnitus.

Scraping

[rebelmouse-image 18360341 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Knife and fork on a plate.

One minute I'm cutting a steak, the next minute I have a neck cramp.

Snap, Crackle, Pop

[rebelmouse-image 18360342 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When I broke my ankle, I heard a loud POP of the bone snapping just before the pain hit. I had a split second of "oh sh*# that didn't sound good" just before "OH SH!# THAT DOESN'T FEEL GOOD EITHER"

I love movies. Who doesn't?

Film has been leaving an impression on our lives for over a century.

Some of the things we remember most are the images. The shots that seem otherworldly.

How does the director and the DP figure it all out? How do they see the colors?

I've seen some shots that have left me breathless.

It's all genius.

How high was God or whoever when they designed the human body? Clearly they needed a crash course in anatomy.

The body is amazing and resilient, but it can also be a hot mess.

Why are so many areas susceptible to pain? Like, one bad fall on a knee and you could be hobbled for life.

They should be more bulletproof. And the eyes, why so fragile when a wild eyelash gets caught in a blink?

So many questions. If the body was intended to last ten decades or so, it should be a bit more bionic.

Redditor MrBowls wanted to get into details about anatomy and it's issues, they asked:

"What’s the worst designed part of the human body?"
