Health Alert: 'Incredibles 2' can disturb your brain


Fans who have already seen 'Incredibles 2' movie are warning other theatre-goers of the potential epilepsy triggers caused due to the strobe lights. Epilepsy is a disorder in which nerve cell activity in the brain is disturbed, causing seizures. While some theatres have deemed it necessary to post epilepsy warnings at their venues, Disney-Pixar has not placed one before the screening of the film. 

Taking to Twitter, a user wrote, "I am not calling for a boycott of Incredibles 2, or to change the movie. It is very well done, and the strobe lights are an important point in the plot. I just wish Disney/Pixar and theatres alike would issue a warning that the movie contains several scenes with strobe lights."

Another user wrote, "Parents have the right to make an informed decision about something that could impact their child's safety and people with chronic illness have the right to learn about potential triggers/make steps to avoid them. Incredibles 2 needs a safety warning at the ticket window for this."

"I kind of dont want to see incredibles 2 in theaters because while i dont have epilepsy i get really bad headaches from flashing lights," said another fan. A fan wrote, "I kind of dont want to see incredibles 2 in theaters because while i dont have epilepsy i get really bad headaches from flashing lights."
