New 'Twilight' Movie

Reportedly Causing Seizures

It's fun to say the "Twilight" movies are so bad they might be hazardous to your health -- but now that could actually be true!

According to several reports, the graphic birthing scene in "Breaking Dawn: Part One" has caused some moviegoers to suffer from seizures.

In Sacramento, a man told CBS13 he began to have a seizure during the scene and his wife described him as "convulsing, snorting, trying to breathe."

A man in Utah had the same thing happen to him, telling ABC-4, "I didn’t really remember what happened, after that I think I blacked out. According to [my wife], I was shaking and mumbling different noises."

Photosensitive epilepsy, which can be caused by flashing lights, is thought to be the cause.

Oh for heaven's sake. This same guy can probably watch a Jason movie or Halloween chop 'em up without a bit of trouble. If something is bothering you in a movie, close your eyes until it's over. Sheesh.

If you have photosensitive epilepsy it's not the movie's fault that you have seizures. You should know that, if you have photosensitive epilepsy, you shouldn't be going to a two-hour long movie where there are most likely going to be flashing lights. Don't blame the movies just because you think the books are stupid. It could happen at any other movie as well.

Correct....there was no real birthing scene. Now, some video games can have this effect on people prone to seizures but let's get a grip people. Sounds like someone is out for some extra money.

"a man told CBS13 he began to have a seizure during the scene and his wife described him as "convulsing, snorting, trying to breathe." He was probably laughing too hard, not having a seizure.

If you have epilepsy, why are you going to a movie theater? You're not even supposed to watch movies at home in the dark with that disorder. And why is it just men? I think this is fake.
