A load have kids have been left (presumably) traumatised after a cinema started showing horror movie The Curse Of La Llorona rather than Detective Pikachu.
Here’s a taster of what they were expecting…
And here’s what they got…
The horror movies first shot is a scene showing a mother drowning her child. Yikes. The basic premise of the story is centres around a social worker who is trying to protect her children from an evil spirit.
Screenrant journalist Ryan George was at the cinema and live-tweeted the event. They probably should have realised when all of the trailers for the movie were for horror movies rather than kid-friendly films.
