Does 'Twilight' cause seizures?

Posted on

Multiple people have reportedly suffered from epileptic seizures during the light-strobing-filled birth scene in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1. Of course, this isn’t the first time a pop culture phenomenon caused people to convulse. Back in 1986, the kinda awesome/kinda horrible video for Wang Chung’s “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” also made news for triggering seizures in some people. The most mysterious news tidbit of today’s story though comes from one man in Utah, who reportedly started convulsing, who would not reveal his name “for fear he could lose his job.” At this point, I’m not entirely sure if it’s because he had a seizure or because he got talked into seeing Twilight.
