LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida church and several members of a local school board are expressing their concern about a Busch Gardens Halloween show.
At a news conference Thursday, the youth pastor of Ignited Church said the featured scene of the theme park's Howl-O-Scream show promotes revenge and violence.
The skit, "Revenge Rocks," tells the story of a young woman who becomes the girlfriend of a grunge rock singer. He betrays her and she takes over the band.
The audience learns that she has imprisoned him and severed his fingers before murdering him.
In a letter, the church asked that the park reconsider the theme of its show.
Busch Gardens said its Halloween show is intended for adults and only as entertainment.
