Yes, there were some creepy moments, but nothing that scared the bejesus out of me like Ronette's nightmare with BOB, Maddy's murder scene, BOB crouching over the couch, Laura's Meanwhile scene in the Black Lodge, BOB caught searching for Laura's diary, etc.
I also agree with this. I'm actually going to differentiate creepiness and scariness, I think The Return did creepy quite well, but the levels of sheer white knuckle scariness it never reached the levels that the Lynch directed stuff in the show and FWWM achieved. I wouldn't call that an issue for me as I appreciated so much of The Return (including the creepiness), but the original TP material had some of the genuinely scariest scenes I've ever seen... and you sighted many examples.
But I don't think Lynch was interested in recreating that. With the possible exception of the glass box attack scene, I can't think of any scene in the return that seemed interested in creating a sense of terror.
i think the scenes with Sarah Palmer was probably going for that effect. her last scene suddenly managed to terrify me.
