SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Reaction to the story we broke about the movie "Twilight: Breaking Dawn" causing seizures is spreading across the nation as more viewers come forward to confirm the story.
Elizabeth Hunter from Nanaimo, Canada told ABC 4 about her daughter's experience while watching the movie, "Her arms were shaking and her whole body was tense...she has never had a seizure before in her life," said Hunter.
"Is this real?" ABC 4's Noah Bond asked.
"Absolutely it's real. You know my daughters were really upset and when they described what happened to the ER doctors they said, 'Yes, she had a seizure,'" Hunter continued.
Each persons says their seizure occurs during or shortly after a scene when the character Bella Swan delivers a baby. The screen flashes bright white light on the audience. Flashing lights are known to cause seizures.
ABC 4 sat down with a Neurologist at LDS Hospital to ask if this is possible. "I haven't seen the movie in question. I haven't seen the scene in question, but it isn't surprising that should happen," said Dr. Robert Miska.
Here are other comments posted below ABC 4's original story.
KCB22 wrote, "My boyfriend (in Roseville, CA) had a seizure during that scene also. No previous epilepsy. Paramedics came to the theater. It was terrifying for me. We are headed to neurology this week. These people are NOT liars."
SHNASTY posted, "My sister in law had a seizure at the exact scene of the movie and she has never had one in her life. A warning should be on this movie."
The neurologist ABC 4 interviewed says your chances of having a seizure while watching this movie are very small.
If you're concerned about the possibility of getting a seizure in this movie just cover your eyes in the scene when Bella delivers a baby.
Dr. Miska said the 1983 movie "Flash Dance" and some video games also cause seizures.
