A movie theater in Nottingham, U.K had a little mishap this past week. An auditorium full of children were ready to see the new Madagascar movie, but they were in for a little surprise.


The movie theater accidentally played the new Paranormal Activity movie. Parents grabbed their kids and ran from the theater. They suspected something was amiss when the opening scene of "Paranormal Activity 4" featured a corpse hurtling toward the camera. The little kids, who were expecting sassy penguins and talking zebras, weren't amused.

Natasha Lewis of Bulwell in Nottingham, who took her 8-year-old son Dylan to see talking animated animals, said the unexpected horror movie scene was "enough to make grown men jump, so you can imagine the terror in these young faces."

She continued: "Everybody just scrambled for the exits, all you could hear were children crying and screaming. Everyone was very upset.

The movie theater apologized for the error, refunded ticket costs, and later screened the real Madagascar 3 for the folks who stuck around. A spokesperson said, "We take matters such as this very seriously and are currently working with technicians to ensure this does not happen again."

Poor children scarred for life just trying to see Madagascar 3.
