“TWILIGHT” CAUSES BRAIN SEIZURES


PEORIA  – The latest movie in the popular ‘Twilight’ franchise is reportedly triggering brain seizures in audiences across the country.

Tyler Zane and Rebecca Stephenson were watching “Breaking Dawn: Part One” at a theater Friday night when Tyler sudden began convulsing, screaming and vomiting during a graphic birthing scene.

Tyler said he doesn’t remember anything until he woke up on the theater floor, but Rebecca said he was, “convulsing, snorting, and yelling Kiss Me Kristen over and over again.”

“He scared me big time,” she added. Paramedics transported the man to the emergency room and the theater had to cancel the rest of the movie for that showing.  That caused a riot in the theatre, but at least everyone’s brain was safe.

Thousands of posts on internet movie sites show are reporting similar cases in which people have brain seizures during the same scene, which contains flashes of red, black and white.  Dr. Charles Osmond, the medical director of teen neurology at Tucson’s Brain Institute, said these reports indicate the scene may be triggering an episode of photosensitive epilepsy or Twilight-itis.

The condition can be triggered by flashing red lights in people who are genetically predisposed.   Also their are reports that if teen girls stare too much at Taylor Lautner or Robert Pattinson, their IQ drops 20 points.  “My daughter was an A student when she went to see Breaking Dawn, and now she keeps bumping into walls, drooling and drawing hearts on her face.”
Look what happened to this AP student:
“It’s like a light switch going off, because it hits your brain all at once,” Dr. Osmond said.  “There are some reports of teens having epileptic fits even BEFORE the movie starts.  It just has that affect on some kids.”

A similar reaction happened in the 1990s with the television show Pokémon, which triggered seizures in children (and parents).

What can parents do?  Don’t let them  teens go to Twilight movies?  “Well, if they do go to the see movie, have them bring a tin foil hat.  Tin foil near the brain is effective in keeping it calm and cool.”
