Parents and children settled into their seats for a new animated Disney film got a quick jolt when a horror movie came on the Middletown screen instead.

A projectionist at the Danbarry Cinemas reportedly played "Insidious: Chapter 3" instead of "Inside Out" by accident. A mother wrote about the incident on Facebook, saying her children were scared and she and other adults scooped up their kids and left.

A manager says the parents got an apology and an upgrade pass to see the Disney Pixar movie in 3-D. 

The cinema's site calls the Insidious movie "a chilling prequel" with violence and frightening images.
