A common term in independent film referring to cutting in a manner that is so visually jarring that audiences will potentially be taken aback or taken "out of the experience". You will "catch" them.

A visual edit causing viewers to realise they are indeed watching a film. Your audience is free falling through the fantasy, you don't want to "catch" them because then they will come out of it.
Some french foreign films from the mid 1900's, the time-jumps in "momento"

Many scenes that cut to new environments with different lighting or have an outgoing action that is not met with a match cut.

"Man that last scene really caught me, kind of ruined it"

"We don't want to catch our viewers, smooth that out"
