The birth scene is very intense. Not only does the scene involve a great deal of blood, but the colors red, black and white flash on the screen throughout the scene. Dr. Michael G. Chez, the medical director of pediatric neurology and epilepsy for Sutter Sacramento, believes that the colors in the scene could be the cause of the epileptic episodes. Chez stated that “It’s like a light switch going off, because it hits your brain all at once.”
Epileptic seizures can be very intense and this scene could even triggger them in someone that is not used to having them, which makes it even more scary. Hopefully movie theaters will have warning signs to alert audiences of the situation. When I saw it last weekend, there were no warnings whatsoever.
