'Twilight' movie apparently causing seizures in audience members




As if we needed more reasons, here's yet another problem with the Twilight series that proves it's a better idea to stay away: It seems flashing lights in a scene in the recently released Breaking Dawn, Part I causes seizures in some people. And her we thought it was Kristen Stewart's so-called acting.

KOVR TV, the Sacramento, Calif., CBS affiliate says a guy named Brandon Gephart was watching the movie with a woman named Kelly Bauman when he starting "convulsing, snorting, (and) trying to breath," Bauman said. Apparently that's a thing, because others have said a part of the movie has caused similar problems other places.

A doctor told the CBS station that those flashing red, black and white lights can cause photosensitive epilepsy, like what happened in the 1990s to kids watching the Pokemon cartoon. Although if ever a guy was going to fake his way out of watching a Twilight movie with a girl, that would be a very convincing method.
