* Even though the "kid" in the situation is a 40-year-old man, Brent from ''Series/CornerGas'' is pressured to watch a horror movie by his parents and Wanda after he admits he has never seen one. He's the only one who doesn't get scared by it. Oscar and Emma are too scared to go into their basement, and Wanda is too scared to go into the gas station's stockroom. Oscar was somehow scared by the movie despite having slept through the whole thing. -->'''Oscar:''' I saw the ''credits''. ''[nervously]'' Some of the letters were ''bleeding''.

* In the ''Series/MonstersVsAliens'' episode "Attack of the Movie Night", Sqweep sees a horror movie despite being warned not to, and gets scared by the monster in the movie. To get him over his fear, the monsters device a costume like the one in the movie to get him to face his fear. Only two things wrong with that scenario: One, Sqweep got the memory of the movie extracted, so when he sees Coverton wearing the costume, instead of being scared, starts attacking him; and two, that extracted memory comes to life, so now the movie monster is on the loose.

[[AC: FanFic]][[folder:Comedy]] * Creator/BillCosby: ** His famous "Chicken Heart" routine is this with a horror radio show (Arch Oboler's ''Lights Out''). It culminates in him smearing Jell-O on the floor to trap the giant heart and ''setting the couch on fire.'' ** Another routine involves him and a friend going to the movies and trying to watch Film/{{Frankenstein|1931}}, and never opening their eyes to see the monster. This leads to them staying at the theater for hours, through multiple showings, trying to build up the courage to look at the monster. Afterwards, he and his friend walk home, late at night, scared that the monster's going to jump out and get them. This leads to them running into a wino, mistaking him for the monster, and running up his front and down his back, and all the way home. [[/folder]] [[folder:Fan Works]]

[[AC: Film]] * In the first ''HomeAlone'' movie, Kevin watches an old gangster movie that he was previously not allowed to see. It ends up scaring him, but he later uses the audio of that scene to ward off the burglars (as well as to scare the living daylights out of a pizza deliveryman). He watches another in the second one and the same thing happens, except he uses it to ward off the hotel staff instead.

He tells the true story of a little girl who was once ordered to go to bed, because she was too young to hear the story about to be told to her older siblings. The story, "The Warlock's Hairy Heart", was about a bitter man removing his heart so he would never fall in love, who eventually killed a woman and ripped out ''her'' heart and ate it to try and feel emotion. She was so traumatized that she rewrote and Bowdlerized all the tales into horrible mountains of {{glurge}}. She never could manage to do it to TWHH, so she just refused to print it.

AliceAndBob are two mischievous little kids aged around 8-12.One day, they decide they'll go to the movies. Their parents are fine with this, but warn the two of them not to see that new horror film that just came out. Alice and Bob swear they'll see an age appropriate kid film and go off to the movies innocently. Of course, they'll go see the horror film anyway, either getting in easily or sneaking in if the guy at the ticket booth won't let a pair of kids in. This backfires when they find out how terrifying and gruesome the horror movie is, and nearly end up half-traumatized. The rest of the episode will usually consist of them having nightmares and eventually being outed to the parents at seeing the film. Another common version is the kids watching it at home when the parents are out. Sometimes, though less common, the parents will be there as well.
