BESSEMER, Ala. (WIAT) — Scary movies can take a back seat to this real-life horror story. 

A woman took to social media Sunday night, claiming bed bugs were in her seat at the Premiere Cinema 14 Promenade in Bessemer. 

Crystal Crawford Youngblood posted pictures she says she took at the theater, one of which shows raised patches on her arm, which she claims are bed bug bites.

Premiere Cinemas denied Youngblood’s claims in a statement posted on Facebook. The theater says “no evidence of insect activity has been detected.” 

Also, the theater is in the process of upgrading to “all new leather reclining seats.”

Check back Tuesday for CBS 42 Reporter Brit Moorer’s interview with Ms. Youngblood.
