Two people have been taken to hospitals because of seizures suffered by moviegoers watching Twilight: Breaking Dawn according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film centers on the marriage of  Bella and Edward (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson) and her increasingly violent pregnancy. Bella’s birth scene in the 3rd Twilight movie is reportedly the scene triggering the seizures.

A California man, Brandon Gephart was “convulsing, snorting, trying to breathe,” Gephart’s girlfriend Kelly Bauman told CBS Sacramento. “He scared me big time.”

A Salt Lake City man also suffered a similar seizure while watching Breaking Dawn, ABC4 reports. “I didn’t really remember what happened after that,” he said. “I think I blacked out. According to [my wife] I was shaking and mumbling different noises.”

The birth scene, which features red, white and black images could be responsible for episodes of photosensitive epilepsy.

The movie is especially violent when it comes to Bella’s pregnancy Breaking Dawn features Bella’s violent pregnancy of her child with her significant other, vampire Edward.

“Bella turns pale and gaunt and seems in danger of wasting away; it appears the fetus is taking all of the nutrients for itself and leaving nothing for Mom, who can no longer eat normal food,” writes THR’s chief film critic Todd McCarthy.
