Parents have told how their children were left 'scarred for life' after cinema staff put on a horror film instead of a cartoon comedy.
There was panic in a Saturday-morning screening when 15-rated supernatural thriller Paranormal Activity 4 started playing instead of PG family movie Madagascar 3.
Youngsters reacted in horror as a 'flashback' scene from the original Paranormal Activity showed a bloodied corpse being hurled at the camera.

Yeah....full refund...complimentary tickets...wouldn't cut it for me. Poor little tykes!

it's probably the best time they've had since last Christmas.  Kids love running about screaming in terror.

Those kids need to toughen up. I grew up with far more horrifying horror films & I wanted to see more.   B)

Could've been worse.... the  opening scene could have been accompanied by the soundtrack:  Bawn chicka bomp bawm.... :w00t: :whistle:

That's some laughable service there.

You can't help but wonder if someone did this on purpose :whistle:

Oh man, that is so funny but if it happened to me with my son I would be pissed! It's pretty bad though that you can see a bloody corpse thrown at the camera just by watching commercial breaks.

What they probably were scared about was how bad the film actually is

Traumatizing, no doubt.

Kids these days are coddled a bit too much I think. No wonder they don't go out, they're scared of every little thing. :D

Horror movies were my favourite genre of movie for as long as I can remember. Even for books, I loved the Goosebumps series.

Yes, but why is this news? It's called a screw-up, it happens. And hopefully the parents were smart enough to leave the minute it started and get the theatre to put the correct movie on the screen.

As a parent I'd be not happy!  Not funny dealing with nightmares or triggering some underlying anxiety issues etc.  Who's helping me calm my little boy at 2am in the morning??  Sure all funny if we were talking older kids but 4 year olds?  Not funny.

I don't like taking my kids to the movies anymore anyway.  The seats are filthy, the price is over-the-top and, usually, the movie is usually pretty lame really and not worth going to see on a big screen.

Yeah kids like horror and gross stuff but can't it wait till ,say, 9 or 10?  The little ones brains have enough to deal with.
