To see if danger makes people experience time in slow motion, scientists at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston tried scaring volunteers. However, roller coasters and other frightening amusement park rides did not cause enough fear to make time warp.

I personally see some holes in this theory. I've heard many stories of people in dangerous situations say how time seemed to go by so quickly rather than slowly. So the theory can't really be a universal one.
I saw an interview with LaDainian Tomlinson, running back for the san diego chargers on sunday. Through one segmet he talked about how things happen slower for him on the football field, how he see's everything on the field in slow motion. He doesn't just account for the guy right in front of him, but the next three guys in front of him.
