Either Too Scary Or Just Plain Terrible, 22 Movies People Actually Walked Out Of

We’ve all been there: Sometimes a movie is so awful that people actually walk out.

That was the subject of a post on the r/movies subreddit, where u/jelatinman asked the group which movies they’d walked out on.

The answers spanned all kinds of genres and actors, but they all had one thing in common — at least one person got up and left.

So without further ado, here are 22 movies that made people get up and walk out.
