And I’m not talking about the crotch seizures that the Twihards bust into when watching RPattz break the headboard with his ultimate sparkle strength. Brandon Gephart of Roseville, CA bravely went into a theater showing Twatilight: Breaking Hymens and came out on a stretcher. Brandon’s girlfriend Kelly tells CBS Sacramento that during the scene in the movie where Bella pops out her vampire glitter baby, the annoying effects caused him to convulse, snort and gasp for air. No, Brandon was not caught in a fit of uncontrollable HAHAHAs. Dude was having a full blown Epileptic seizure and he didn’t stop until the paramedics arrived to take him the hospital. Well, on a positive note, at least he got out of seeing the rest of the movie.
Brandon didn’t remember anything until he woke up on the movie theater floor with the paramedics in front of him. This also isn’t the first time somebody had a seizure during that mess of a movie. The Hollywood Reporter says that the same thing happened to a dude in Salt Lake City. He blacked out and started shaking during the scene. The man’s wife had to slap him several times in the face to try to bring him out of it. Doctors believe that the red, white and black images flashing during the scene can trigger episodes of photosensitive epilepsy. Dr. Michael Chez explained, “It’s like a light going off because it hits your brain all at once. The trouble with theaters is that they’re so dark, the light flashing in there is more like a strobe light.”
So now you can add “May induce seizures” next to “May cause you to laugh your lungs out” and “May cause you to drown your face in a bucket of popcorn to get away from Kristen Stewart’s non-stop eye blinking” on the Surgeon General’s warning for this shit show.
And I completely believe that Twilight brings out the seizures in a person, because my throat nearly had one when this bowl of cottage cheese laced with fuckery graced my inbox:
