An increasing number of fans are reporting that the new Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn Part I, has been causing seizures. The reported events are allegedly due to a sequence of bright lights during the birth scene. Similar situations have occurred in the past in the entertainment industry, particularly with a type of Japanese animation called anime, which sometimes uses contrasting bright lights to convey emotions, such as tension. Experts say that while sensitivity to these types of seizures is rare, people can generally avoid the risk by simply covering their eyes during the scene at issue.

This article discusses more in depth how these types of lights cause seizures. One of the causes of these types of seizures is from patterns of bright flashing lights in the retinas of the eye.
