** All of the nuclear holocaust sequences are during the daytime. Particularly, ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' shows burning children. The [[Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles TV show]] has two brothers watching the nukes fly overhead as they play baseball in their front yard. The ending of ''[[spoiler: Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines]]'' shows [[spoiler: beautiful landscapes illuminated by sunlight... obliterated by many nukes.]]
** Many of the assassination sequences, as well, for instance the smiling deliveryman in ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' who shoots a RedShirt, but also ends up [[spoiler:taking out [[AnyoneCanDie Derek.]]]] Also, for instance, the assassination of one of the Sarah Connors in [[Film/TheTerminator the original movie]].

* ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes'': Being the sadistic bastards that they are, the mutants preferred to take down most of their victims in broad daylight rather than at night when they're most vulnerable.

Added DiffLines:

* Series/NakedAndAfraid - The sun will try to bake the couple, sometimes to the point that they need a medical evacuation.
** There's also the instance where the sun helps illuminate the painful bump on a man's skin where a fly had laid its squirming larva.
*** Plus, there's the more subtle horror of the NakedFirstImpression where every bodily flaw is highlighted by the bright sun -- no romantic lighting here -- in front of your new partner and a film crew... a very bad NotWearingPantsDream for many.

Added DiffLines:

* The infamous "nuke the fridge" sequence actually starts off very creepy before becoming ridiculous. Franchise/IndianaJones stumbles upon a fairly normal suburban town in the middle of a sunlit desert populated by many UncannyValley mannequins posed to act as if they're engaged in various mundane activities as saccharine music plays. It turns out to be a Nevada Test Site, and a count down starts before a nuclear bomb gets dropped to see what happens to a normal, American town.

Added DiffLines:

* While most of ''Film/{{Cloverfield}}'' takes place during the night, the last ten minutes or so take place in the early morning on May 23rd. Somehow this doesn't make encountering the giant monstrosity that's none the worse for wear after an entire night being attacked by the U.S. military any less unsettling. [[spoiler:Especially when it leans down to look at one of the protagonists, then bites them in half.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Most of the horror and tragic moments of ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'' take place during the day. This includes Gould's death, [[spoiler:the White Phosphorous incident, the Radioman's sudden demise, Lugo's hanging and a good chunk of the hallucinations.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In one of the later areas of ''VideoGame/SpookysHouseOfJumpScares'', you appear to walk outside into a brightly-lit forest. Unfortunately, you are still not out of the mansion, and the deer you see will attack you if you get close enough.

Added DiffLines:

* Taken UpToEleven in ''FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse''. As a result of Corona being bound into the sun, the sun itself is something to be feared. In particular, nopony will ever willingly be out-of-doors at high noon.
