Teens Riot While Watching ‘Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension’


French teens are starting riots after watching ‘Paranormal Activity 6’…but this is not the first time.

Why are so many French teens rioting at American horror movies?

Reports from France are suggesting Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension may get pulled from theaters after teens gathered and rioted during a screening of the American horror movie. According to a report by L’Independent reads:

It all started in the early afternoon when fifty most teenagers aged 9-13 years, gathered near the Castillet cinema Boulevard Wilson. Suddenly, around 4 PM, all of the young boarded various modes of free transportation, all in the same direction: the Mega Castillet cinema. They converged with another group of minors who were waiting there and immediately smelled “a good bargain.” A horde of hundreds kids that forced the cinema entrance… climbing the stairs four at a time, weaving in all directions, overturning bins, and sowing panic.  They stormed a theater screening Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, destroying 3D glasses, tearing up seats, and throwing objects at the screen.

The same thing happened in 2014 when the American horror movie Annabelle was pulled from theaters after a series of riots in theaters across France. According to reports, Marseille, Strasbourg, and Montpellier were getting thousands of teenagers showing for a 450 seat movie theater to see “Annabelle” and proceeded to tear up seats and riot during the movie.

“Some didn’t have the most elementary notion of how to behave,” theater owner Didier Tarizzo told The Times. “They were throwing popcorn and talking at the top of their voices or walking round. It’s not up to me to teach young people how to respect the law. What worried me was that a cinemagoer irritated by all the noise could have had a go at an adolescent.”

Do you think this is just a coincidence? Think again. The same thing happened in France in 2012 during the screenings of Paranormal Activity 4. Bloody Disgusting reported at the time that youth riots led to Sinister being pulled from several major French theaters, before the movie was ever released.


So it begs the question? Why are French kids rioting during American horror movies? Is it because each of the movies centers around evil children? French Film critic Alain Grasett argues, “It’s a very young audience, for whom the screening is a time to let loose. They go to see it as a joke, but it’s a pretext to go a little wild.”
