What movies do you avoid with a hangover stomach?

Posted on

Feeling queasy from last night’s celebrations? Well, there’s a list of films you might want to avoid. I recently read that there is a real name for the fear of vomit — emetophobia — and I definitely have it. You can imagine the trouble I had with the early minutes of The Office wedding episode. Anyway if you, like me, don’t want to vomit — year round or just today with a New Year’s hangover — then the emetophobia society has a handy list of movies to avoid. Aliens seems to be the worst offender.

What do you think, what’s the film that turns your stomach? And what’s the worst on-screen puking scene — The Exorcist? Stand by Me?
