Florida Jail Inmates Tortured with Zemeckis Animation

Talk about cruel and unusual punishment!

Inmates in a Florida jail are being forced to watch Robert Zemeckis’s mo-cap trainwreck Polar Express over and over again. One inmate is so distressed that he filed a lawsuit claiming that the experience is akin to Chinese water torture.

“I hear those little kids screaming through my brain. All night long I can hear them,” he told CNN. “I can close my eyes, but I’m still going to hear them over and over and over.”

To be fair, the guy killed a woman driving drunk so Robert Zemeckis’s films might be exactly the kind of animation hell he deserves.
