Does the Birth Scene in “Breaking Dawn” Cause Seizures?
There have been actual cases of people having seizures during the birth scene. Why? It contains bright flashes of black, white and red. Those flashes trigger something called Photosensitive Epilepsy, which is a fancy way of saying seizures brought on by flashing lights.
One woman from Sacramento says her boyfriend started, quote, “convulsing, snorting, and trying to breathe” during the scene. When the seizure passed, he didn’t remember anything, and the rest of the screening was canceled. A woman in Salt Lake City says her husband, “started mumbling and he was blinking on and off with his eyes at that point. She was kneeling in front of him slapping his face.” She added that a girl had a seizure during that scene at the same theater the following day.
If it weren’t for the girl, I was going to suggest that guys were doing this on purpose to get out of watching the movie. But talk about scary!
Did you have anything weird happen to you during the birth scene? Will this make you wait to watch the movie until its on DVD to skip the flashing lights during the birth scene?
