Please stop playing horror movie trailer ads before the trailers I'm trying to watch, it is scaring the crap out of my children.

Frequently I try and watch movie trailers with my family and they are scared to death from the horror movie trailer ads you force them to watch before the trailers we want to watch. There is no warning nor way to skip the horror movies and it is totally inappropriate to subject people who don't want to watch those types of movies to the ads without consent. If you don't stop it I will stop using the site.

Hi Steve,

Could you please write us back with the film who's trailer was preceded by a horror movie trailer so we can forward this to the proper team?

Thanks in advance!

It came up for both oceans 8 and the polka king. I know these aren't little kid movies but a horror movie still gives my 10 and 12 yrs olds nightmares even though they much enjoy an action movie. Also my wife really doesn't appreciate it either. The horror movie was called something like "Insidious the last key". Overall an unpleasant surprise to my wife and kids which means I may have to stop watching trailers on IMDB. That being said I very much appreciate your reply and forwarding the message on.

We can't blame you. I think sometimes adults forget how scary things can be for children. It's like we don't have the same kind of imagination.

Not being nearly young enough to see Insidious as child makes me wonder what I am missing out on right now :P

Thank you for the additional information, Steve.

We've reported this feedback to our advertising team. Please let us know if you experience this with any other trailers, so that we can pass the information along.

Thanks!
