New Film Tightrope Is Causing People To Be Sick – 5 Other Films That Have Affected The Audience

Cinema is a strong force, something that can really affect audiences physically and emotionally. This has reared its head again, with some audience members of Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s new film experiencing nausea and vomiting due to its brilliant depictions of the character dangling above a great height. Below is a list of movies that have also reduced their audience members to vomiting or affected them in some other way.

127 Hours

If you haven’t seen 127 hours, it’s a movie about the grueling five days that Aron Ralston spent in a canyon with his arm pinned by a boulder. After a few days of rationing his food and water, he began to succumb to death, realising his small knife could never cut through his bone. However, he decides to break the bone, allowing him access through his forearm, which is exactly what he did. Understandably, this left some movie-goers feeling quite uncomfortable and nauseous, with some even fainting from shock.

The Passion Of The Christ

Known for it’s brutal climax during Jesus’ crucifixion, this movie is actually down as killing someone. A woman suffered a heart attack during said scene, the depiction of the crucifixion just far too much for her to take. The movie already had a high level of controversy surrounding it and a death certainly did not help that.

The Exorcist

When The Exorcist first started to play in the cinema, the news became awash with compilations that you can still find today, ones that showed people actually fleeing from the film in shock and horror. By the time the movie made it to London, there were actually ambulances outside the doors in case there were further cases of fainting.

This highly controversial film had people evacuating theaters in their droves. The sight of missing limbs and otherwise unusual figures left many stunned and unable to watch, despite the fact that the the disabled people within the film were painted as the virtuous characters of the movie.

The Blair Witch Project

While The Blair Witch Project is quite possibly one of the most famous horror movies of all time, whether for good or bad reasons, it wasn’t fear that left people sick when watching it but the camera work. By pioneering the found footage genre, the movie left many with motion sickness and some theaters were forced to give out refunds.

Are there any scary movies that you think deserve to be on this list? Tell us in the comments if you’ve had your own audience moment or if a movie has left you ill.
