Children and their parents flee the theater after watching a horror movie trailer

Parents are their kids were forced to flee a cinema in Australia when a horror movie trailer nicknamed “the year’s scariest film” accidentally shown before the children’s movie Peter Rabbit.

The horror movie called ‘Hereditary’ starring Toni Colette received an MA15+ rating in Australia for “themes of strong horror”. The trailer for the movie shows many disturbing and upsetting scenes, including a scene where a child cuts the head off a dead pigeon with a pair of scissors.

An audience member from the cinema said, “It was dreadful. Very quickly you could tell this was not a kid’s film.

“Parents were yelling at the projectionist to stop, covering their kids’ eyes and ears. Some parents fled the cinema with their kids in tow.”

The Australian cinema ultimately switched off the screen and later offered the members in the audience complimentary tickets to make up for the innocent mistake. A spokesperson for Event Cinema’s parent company, Event Hospitality, and Entertainment commented that the matter was being “investigated internally to ensure situations like this do not occur again.”
