    Good evening madam. sorry about this issue. you might have had a Panic attack as a result of the movie you saw. the treatment is majorly psychologic. just put it off your mind. engage yourself in some other activities that can take you off the horrible scene completely. you can make phone calls, you can listen to some songs of your choice, you can go have some discussions with some friends or neighbours. I am sure the pervious thought will disappear after some time. please, endeavour to check your blood pressure just for the knowledge if it as well. all the best
