Oh the irony. Who would have thought that die hard fans of a film series about vampires and werewolves would be deathly afraid of a trailer for a horror film where you can't even see anything frightening?
Well, apparently Twilight fans in Texas were so rattled by the Paranormal Activity 2 teaser trailer before the midnight premiere of Eclipse that they complained to management at several Cinemark movie theaters. That would be fine, but the complaints caused management to pull the trailer from those theaters.
Reports say the fans claimed the teaser trailer, which is admittedly creepy, but extremely tame by current standards, was "too scary." What's worse, Cinemark fully intends to pull the trailer from more theaters if the complaints continue.
I know the bulk of Twilight's fans reside in the early teen demographic, but I have to ask: what the hell are kids that age doing at midnight screenings on a Tuesday night anyway? And if it wasn't the younger audience members freaking out, how on earth could a teaser trailer be so scary as to make older teens and grown adults urinate their pants in fear? It doesn't even show anything scary!
See the trailer below to judge for yourself!
