Bella’s Spawn Causes Seizures

Posted on December 5, 2011


Whether you love bloodsucking vampires or jealous werewolves, the new film Breaking Dawn – Part 1 will leave you breathless.  In fact, the film literally left the some viewers in shock this weekend.

Actors: Robert Pattison (Edward Cullen), Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan), and Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black)

The fourth film in the Twilight Saga broke the Twilight opening record with $30.25 million at its midnight screenings, earning more money on its opening than any of the three previous films. But that was no shocker, considering that the movies become more intense each time. Croatan student Kelsey Henry said, “The movie was absolutely outstanding, by far my favorite.”

Based on Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight novels, the films tell the story of a romance between Bella Swan, a teenage girl, and her vampire lover, Edward Cullen.  A werewolf named Jacob Black also tries to win Bella’s affection. The current film tells the story of how Edward carries the day and marries Bella. But there is one more surprise that left everyone’s jaw dropped in this vampire romance: a baby. The movie has everything from birth, to fighting, and even death.

There have been some cases in which viewers have experienced epileptic seizures during the birth scene.  Doctors say the seizures “could be a result of rapidly changing colors in the film’s climactic childbirth scene.”   Dr. Michael G. Chez, a pediatric neurologist added that “The incident might have been a result of a genetic predisposition to photosensitive epilepsy.”  Photosensitive epilepsy is a rare condition where seizures may be triggered by lights flashing in a pattern.

With every teenage girl foaming at the mouth the see the Vampire’s big marriage scene, and just as many teenage boys dreading the wedding, the possibility of a seizure may be the greatest–and only–excuse to not take your significant other to a Twilight film.
