There's nothing worse than sitting down to watch what you remember being a super fun movie only to be hit with an extremely dark opening scene.

An amazing opening scene can make a bad movie seem better, and an opening scene that could be its own movie is always really cool, but each of the following opening scenes will stick with you throughout the runtime of the film. Even if your brain does all it can to scrub the existence of these dark movie beginnings, they'll always be there waiting to bum you out whenever you feel like having a good time at the movies.
