Nottingham Children Left "Screaming" After Cinema Horror Film Mix-Up

By Gary Cutlack on at

Some poor children who were expecting to see some brightly coloured animals hitting their heads on things in Madagascar 3 were left traumatised and in tears after the cinema accidentally played them horror sequel Paranormal Activity 4 instead.

"All you could hear were children crying and screaming" said local parent Natasha Lewis, who took her eight-year-old boy to see the newest Madagascar. Some children as young as five were apparently in the screening room, waiting to be amused and entertained by talking lions, rather then seeing dead American teenagers.

"It opens on the most terrifying scene in the first film -- where a body shoots full pelt towards the camera," she explained to those who aren't fans of the horror franchise, saying that it was at that point when everyone in the cinema made a mass scramble for the exits amid the sound of crying, horrified children. [Yahoo Movies]
