'127 Hours' Causes People to Pass Out? You Betcha!

James Franco stars in the just-released 127 Hours (playing limited, but expect it to expand quickly) and is quite convincing as Aron Ralston, the mountain climber who became trapped under a boulder and who resorted to some desperate measures in order to survive. The gruesome challenges Franco undergoes are so convincing that early showings of the film have caused over a dozen audience members to faint, according to Newsweek…apparently, stark realism is just too much for some to handle. Said the James Francoreport,  between 13 and 16 people fainted, two reportedly became lightheaded, and three had seizures (!)

Of course, this hasn’t been the first time audience members have literally freaked out at the movies. Similar instances of fainting, panic attacks, vomiting, etc. were common at early showings of films like The Blair Witch Project and The Exorcist, and back in 2003, a woman had a fatal heart attack during the crucifixion scene of Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ.
We're curious, though, does stuff like this make you want to see the movie more…or less? Or are you unfazed by others' not-so-steely reactions?
