Saturday Night Live Nails What A Test Screening Is Really Like

Well, this looks pretty familiar.

A lot of times, when new horror movies come out, studios will often host advance sneak peek screenings, film the audience reactions and use them as part of the commercials, trailers and promotional materials. You may recognize these kinds of promo clips from those little PARANORMAL ACTIVITY movies we do.

On this past weekend’s Saturday Night Live episode (Season 41, Episode 13), they showed us what it’s like when they show that footage for the fictional THE CUL-DE-SAC to the audience in question and the results, thanks to Melissa McCarthy, are pretty darned hilarious. Have a look!

Have things ever gotten this bad at any test screenings you’ve been to? We sure hope not!
