Welcome to the First Editon of Media Maniac's Flashback News, where we revist the old news from the blast of the past.
The last post you read before was about a movie theater playing the wrong film to the Guardians of the Galaxy crowd. But not the only this incindent that happened, This first post tells you the very diffent story.
Two years ago in Nottingham, England, a cinema play the wrong movie, but not at the Guardians of the Galaxy crowd, but at the children who wanted see Madgascar 3. But instead a horror movie was played. Yahoo UK reported 2 years ago that families has fleed from their children's terror. “Natasha Lewis of Bulwell in Nottingham, who took her eight-year-old son Dylan to the screening, said: “They started playing the movie and I thought - this doesn't look right. And then I recognised the opening sequence as a flash back to the first movie, which I saw a couple of years ago.
“It opens on the most terrifying scene in the first film - where a body shoots full pelt towards the camera. It's enough to make grown men jump, so you can imagine the terror in these young faces.
“Everybody just scrambled for the exits, all you could hear were children crying and screaming. Everyone was very upset.
“I've watched a few horror films in my time but the 'Paranormal Activity' films are the scariest since 'The Exorcist'.
“It was only about two minutes worth of the film but it was enough to scar them for life. There were parents and kids in there, including some children who were younger than Dylan.
“The cinema needs to check the film before sending everyone in so they don't make this mistake again. I'm disgusted about it, mistakes like this simply should not happen.”*” That film was Paranormal Activity 4, a Found-Footage horror film that was released to world at the time in 2012.
Golly, that's an incident that history repeated differtly for 3 years in a row.
