“Who is Keyser Soze?” from “The Usual Suspects” (1995) dir. Bryan Singer, scr. Christopher McQuarrie

Video

One of the most bone-chilling scenes in cinematic history .. this is the back story of master criminal Keyser Soze … the much-feared boogeyman of Bryan Singer’s best film “The Usual Suspects.” As Kevin Spacey’s character Verbal Kint says: “Keaton always said, ‘I don’t believe in God, but I’m afraid of him.’ Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is Keyser Soze.”

The other key line: “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”

The clip here is not safe for work. It’s not particularly bloody, but extremely disturbing.
