No movie ever scared me out of the theater.  Although, I did get quite a fright when Barnabas Collins turned into an old man in HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS.

WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILER if you've never seen "Salem's Lot" (1979)

Small | Large


This gave me nightmares for years and I didn't again chance watching an Horror film for over 10 years --must have seen this when I was 6-7. Granted it was on TV I saw it.

There's a similar sequence in BLACK SABBATH I also find even more unsettling.

Some scenes in this one frightened me quite a bit too. I'm almost certain now I saw Brides of Dracula and Salem's Lot on the same night as a little kid.

This left me screaming out of the theatre, declaring the apocalypse was among us.

Let's Scare Jessica to Death (1971). This wasn't during its original run but years later. I was 5 1/2 years old and the onscreen horror was just too much for me and my one year older sister. Our father took us home while my mother and my two other sisters enjoyed the movie to the very end.

And I like PPG just fine (though as far as "Favorite Cartoon Cartoons" go, Courage, I Am Weasel and Dexter are ranked higher), mind you. But I can still smell a P.o.S when I see it. In this case, the movie is the kind of the thing the show would've parodied.
More on-topic, I recall Little Nicky unnerving me enough to where I snuck out of the theatre while dad continued watching it. I don't what it was that disturbed me, just that I didn't want to watch the rest.

I won't say "scared me out the theater" but Sidney Lumet's Murder On The Orient Express murder scene frightened the crap out of me (I was seven).  Buggedout Buggedout

Picture this: Jean-Pierre Cassel comes into Richard Widmark's compartment after the latter's been drugged, JPC turns off the main light and switches on the blue night light: he comes up out of the darkness and his whole face has turned an eerie shade of blue, as has everything else. Then the murder follows: I was totally blown away by this film and I remember thinking that doing something like this is what I wanted to do with my life someday. *

* I don't mean murdering someone on a train, I meant being in the movies in some way.  Wink

Yes, the Hammer "Brides of Dracula" made me leave well before it was over.  The poster featured a guy in a red vest as a vampire, though this costume was not in the film.  For months afterward, I would leave the room if someone wearing a red vest came in -

I'll admit it, and I know it's a contested film, but Paranormal Activity got me pretty close at times.

Yeah I know some find it too stupid to enjoy, I understand that, or too boring. But it felt kind of good being scared by a movie like that rather than watching another gore-gore horror movie.

Ah whoops missed the 'as a kid' bit. Well, don't think I've ever ran out of something as a kid or even got close.

Actually, I thought you meant emerging from the darkness with your face an eerie shade of blue.

The only movie that actually scared me out of the theater was whichever Harry Potter it was that had the giant spiders in it.  I think it was Chamber of Secrets.  I quite literally ran out of the theater as fast as I could.  I was 23.
