In my teenage years, some friends and myself went to the local Cinema to watch Event Horizon. We were almost late so the movie was just beginning. What followed was one minute of a movie that wasn’t obviously Event Horizon. We reached the correct theater and watched the movie. Now everything I go to the movies I have this nagging feeling to make sure I am watching the right movie. Some parents in Massachusetts should have this same “spider sense”.
At a movie theater in Massachusetts some parents took their children to see Megamind. They got their popcorn, found a seat, probably put on their 3D glasses, and were ready for some animated comedy. What they were shown was the first five minutes of Saw 3D in all its bloody glory. Management figured out they made a mistake and cut the film off and gave everyone free tickets. But the damage was already done. One parent said that their child had to sleep with them due to watching Saw 3D, something the father thought he had over grown. I could be a jerk here. I could make fun of these kids for being pansies. But when I was their age my brother made me watch Child’s Play. That event directly led to all my stuffed animals ending up in a box and more then likely partially led to a long-term fear of the dark. Thanks Jerk. So I understand what long-term emotional scars these children will suffer for the rest of their lives. That doesn’t make it any less hilarious. Maybe the producers of Saw should take this as a omen and stop making these movies.
