    A family trip to the cinema turned into a total nightmare for a screening packed with excited children.

    The screen, at a picture house in Ohio, was supposed to be showing the new Disney Pixar animation, Inside Out.

    But instead, the projectionist put on horror film Insidious: Chapter Three.

    A local mum, Jazmyn Moore, told the Journal-News that she took her five children to the Danbarry Cinema in Middletown.

    But when they were waiting the PG-rated Disney Pixar animated feature about the thoughts in a young girl’s head, they had a horrible surprise, with images of children being tortured and murdered on the screen instead.

    The parents soon took their children out of the screen, but Jazmyn wrote on Facebook: “I got our money back but the damage is already done … my children are terrified and keep asking questions.”

    A spokesman for the cinema said the manager on duty at the time apologised and gave everyone a pass as well as an upgrade to watch the Disney Pixar movie in 3-D.

    According to IMDB, Inside Out is about a young girl who is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, where her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

    Insidious: Chapter Three reveals how a gifted psychic reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
