In what has to be one of the strangest “whoops” moments since the birthing scene from The Hills Have Eyes 2 was shown to kids accidentally, the last(!) of the Saw flicks, Saw 3D has left its mark in the form of several scarred children’s psyches!
As per WHDH News:
“Children were at Showcase Cinemas in Revere, Massachusetts, to see the Dreamworks cartoon “Megamind” in 3D, but instead they saw the horror movie “Saw 3D.” Parents said when the previews came on they started to worry because the previews were a little advanced for children.
They never expected the gory and violent horror film “Saw.”
The children were told to cover their eyes as the scenes of murder and mutilation played for several minutes before the movie theater corrected the problem.
Theatre operators realized the mistake, and the correct movie, “Megamind,” was put on, but parents said the damage was already done and their children are still shaken by it.
“He came and slept with us, and we thought we had gotten past that years ago. He said that he had a few nightmares,” said Dolph Rau, an upset father. “Again, all that I would like to see come out of this is that it’s not going to happen again.”
The children were given one free ticket as a result of the mix-up, but the Rau family’s 7-year-old son told them that he does not want to see a movie again for a very long time.”
Wow. Just wow.
