Moviegoers in Montreal attending a “Detective Pikachu” screening on Thursday night stumbled upon an experience they soon won’t forget. A mistake led to “The Curse of La Llorona” being played instead of the Pokemon feature. This, of course, caused terror among the children present.
Ryan George of Screen Rant attended this clusterfuck of a screening: “The theatre I’m in is playing a trailer for Annabelle: Comes Home before Detective Pikachu LOOK AWAY CHILDREN OH NO,” he tweeted. “Andddd kids are crying. Now the Joker trailer is playing.”
Things got worse when the “Child’s Play” trailer was played was next: “NOW IT’S CHUCKY OH NO CHILDREN OH NO.”
The crowd was then moved to another theater (“at least there aren’t any more murders on-screen”).
