Young kids in Britain are having not so good times watching ‘The Hunger Games’. They are reportedly fleeing the movie theaters mid way as they find certain scenes in the movie too hot to handle. Parents of these traumatized kids claim that their children have been seriously affected by the violence and gory killings depicted in this super hit sci-fi movie. They demand renewal of its movie movie rating from present 12A to 15 as the movie features knife attacks, throat-slashing and broken necks.
“My 12-year-old was so distressed at one particular part that we had to leave,” British newspaper the Daily Star quoted one concerned mother as saying on the Mumsnet website. “The fact that you actually see kids killing other kids is something I would not want a 12-year-old to watch,” another woman said.
Psychologists in certain countries have started studying the impact of ‘The Hunger Games’ on young minds. Some of them seriously believe that violence in ‘The Hunger Games’ is disturbing and it can be a source of great trauma and agony for kids specially under 13-14 years of age.
