Thanks to the ‘shaky-cam’ filming method of Cloverfield, apparently a significant number of viewers have been getting sick during the film:
Scary movies are supposed to leave patrons feeling a bit scared and jittery, but the newest horror flick is leaving Oklahoma City-area moviegoers with a different feeling — nausea.
Some moviegoers across Oklahoma City have gone so far to complain to theater managers, forcing some to refund tickets or offer other compensation.
“I heard a few people kind of whining about it,” said moviegoer Thomas Dozier. “They were talking about, like, ‘I have got to get out of here.’ Everyone around me was freaking out.”
But for those with a sensitive stomach, precautions might be warranted.”Take Dramamine, and you’ll be fine,” said Hastings.
Here’s an even easier bit of advice for queasy Cloverfield viewers: close your eyes. You’re not actually moving while the movie is playing, unlike on a roller coaster, so you can simply shut your eyes for a few moments during a slow spot in the film to let your brain settle down. This is the same advice you’ll get on many virtual reality rides at amusement parks.
