Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - Creepy Cut Scenes?

A few short examples of creepy cut scenes from Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Can you handle them?

I'm playing Twilight Princess again with a friend of mine, and as we're playing it I notice how creepy this game really is. Don't get me wrong, I love the Zelda games, but I wonder what inspired this game's cut scenes, 'cause some of them are borderline creepy.

Twilight Princess Cut Scene: Lanayru

Not to spoil the game for you guys, but as you rid the world of light from the twilight, you also save the spirits of the different areas. One in particular that's really creepy is the Lanayru cut scene. I wasn't expecting this cut scene to go so wonky; I expected a more Zelda-like cut scene that would tell a story, not scare me! The point got across very well within the cut scene, how Link is the hero and must not falter on his journey. The only 'creepy part' I find is when your childhood friend Ilia is shown holding a dagger looking at you with this mischievous smile. She also happens to be a good chunk of why Link went out of his Ordon village.

 Twilight Princess Cut Scene: Midna's Desperate Hour

A cut scene that happens shortly after the Lanayru one, is Midna's Desperate Hour. The cut scene starts out with meeting your bad guy Zant, but ends in a rather weird way. Link gets a twilight shard shoved into his wolf-form skull, and Midna is almost killed. Not to read too much into it, but as Zant is speaking to Midna he has the creepiest mouth I've ever seen in a video game. What looks like either slime or sharp teeth, I don't find them all that welcoming.

Although these cut scenes can be a bit crazy sometimes, the game is completely worth playing. Being able to transform into a wolf was a great addition added to the Zelda franchise, and brought on a different style of playing. I won't spoil all the great details of the game here, but know that when you play this game, it's much different from Ocarina of Time or Wind Waker.

    Twilight Princess had a very haunting vibe to it that was different from many of the other Zelda titles, and that extended to the cut-scenes like you explained above. It's one of the reasons that it's my favorite of the Zelda games I've played so far.
