If you are planning on hitting the local cinema this holiday weekend to check out one of those talky picture shows, do not, and can not stress this enough, go see Twilight: Breaking Dawn. The movie might make you violently ill. There have been reports of moviegoers having seizures during the film, and not just because it is yet another Twilight movie.
Apparently the culprit something known as the ‘birthing scene’ (fyi, typing that in the context of a Twilight movie made be feel light headed) According to CBS News Sancramento, alleged Twihard, Brandon Gephart, had a seizure as a result of the scene. Gephart’s companion described it as “convulsing, snorting, and trying to breathe.” (Not sure if she meant what happend to Gephart or the actual scene in the movie) The CBS affiliate said that this is just one of multiple instances that have been happening throughout the country.
According to Dr. Michael G. Chez, the medical director of pediatric neurology and epilepsy for Sutter Sacramento, this maybe attributed to Condon’s scene – which involves multiple flashes of red, black and white colors triggering episodes of photosensitive epilepsy.
Joking aside, while the condition is rare, it is something the theaters might want to warn moviegoers about as these seizures can be violent and scary and many people may not be aware they suffer from photosensitive epilepsy.
Joking back on, if you get dragged or tricked into seeing it this weekend, you now when and what to fake to get the hell out of the theater. You can thank me later.
