TWILIGHT BIRTHING SCENE SEIZURES, The first part of the final chapter in the Twilight Saga film franchise starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Launter is said to have caused violent illness to strike several audience members in theaters.

In the highly anticipated next chapter of the blockbuster The Twilight Saga, the newfound married bliss of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) is cut short when a series of betrayals and misfortunes threatens to destroy their world. After their wedding, Bella and Edward travel to Rio de Janeiro for their honeymoon, where they finally give in to their passions. Bella soon discovers she is pregnant, and during a nearly fatal childbirth, Edward finally fulfills her wish to become immortal.

But the arrival of their remarkable daughter, Renesmee, sets in motion a perilous chain of events that pits the Cullens and their allies against the Volturi, the fearsome council of vampire leaders, setting the stage for an all-out battle. The suspenseful and deeply romantic Breaking Dawn continues the epic tale of supernatural fantasy and passionate love that has made The Twilight Saga a worldwide phenomenon.

According to a CBS news report (via, Bella’s infamous birthing scene — which takes place towards the end of the film and features the use of red, black and white colored strobing effects — has caused a handful of seizures in audience members:

“In Sacramento, Brandon Gephart had a seizure during Bill Condon’s pivotal scene, ‘convulsing, snorting, and trying to breathe’ his companion, Kelly Bauman told the local CBS affiliate. And according to the report, it’s one of several incidents being reported across the Internet during screenings of Breaking Dawn.”

Director of pediatric neurology and epilepsy for Sutter Sacramento Dr. Michael G. Chez, believes the scenes ‘could be triggering episodes of photosensitive epilepsy’ to those in attendance who are prone to the violent reaction of strobe lighting in a darkened movie theater: “It’s like a light switch going off, because it hits your brain all at once.”
