Several young moviegoers hoping to see “Madagascar 3″ in theaters got a traumatizing surprise when “Paranormal Activity 4″ was projected onto the screen by accident.
The mistake had children “crying and screaming” as they ran toward the exits of Nottingham’s Cineworld in England this weekend.
But not before the audience members, some as young as five, were treated to the scary sight of a bloodied corpse flying at the screen.
“It opens on the most terrifying scene in the first film — where a body shoots full pelt towards the camera,” Natasha Lewis, whose eight-year-old son was in the audience, told Yahoo UK.
“It’s enough to make grown men jump, so you can imagine the terror in these young faces.”
Lewis said the frightening movie played for over two minutes before the kids fled the theater — long enough “to scar them for life,” she added.
A spokesman for Nottingham’s Cineworld apologized for the incident, which apparently stemmed from a “technical error with the projector.”
“We take matters such as this very seriously and are currently working with technicians to ensure this does not happen again,” the spokesman told Yahoo UK.
The theater offered the terrified moviegoers a refund and complimentary tickets, as well as the chance to see the real “Madagascar 3″ half an hour later.
But Lewis says that’s not enough.
“The cinema needs to check the film before sending everyone in so they don’t make this mistake again,” she said. “I’m disgusted about it, mistakes like this simply should not happen.” [source]
First of all, the thought of screaming terrified children running around and dashing for the exits just… it just gives me LIFE!!! I loooove seeing people terrified of ish and dammit… kids are not exceptions.
Second, I would scream and yell my azz off also if i had to watch some damn stupid Paranormal Activity 4…3…2… any of those damn films. Stupid, hollywood. Can we get some original horror, dang!!! It’s impossible to watch the Paranormal Activity movies without getting upset and screaming at the screen…even if you aren’t black.Because…..black people love to yell at the screen like the actors can hear us. Still, you can’t get scared of what is going on because 90% of the movie could have been avoided if the actors just would listen when we scream: RUN B*TCH!!! RUNNNNNNN!!! You can’t be scared when you are mad as hell. I swear, horror movies turn black people into the biggest racists ever, because we sit there just…jsut cussing every last bit of whiteness there is. It’s IMPOSSIBLE for a black person to watch a horror movie without yelling: DAAAAAAAAAAAMN AWWW DAAAAAAAAMN… WHITE PEOPLE!!!!
I’m not even lying.
White people, watch a horror movie with a bunch of black people and just wait for the racism to raaaain down. I’m not even lying.
Third… teee heeee Afro Circus…. I love me some Afro Circus…. Dun dun dunnununa-dununt Afro!
ANyway, yeah… i feel bad for the kids…kind of….ok I don’t. Scaring people is fun.
Hell, I STILL laugh at this damn video and it’s been yeaaaaaaaaars…..
