Horror film proves too much

31st October 2006

Emergency services have been called out on several occasions to deal with film fans overcome by the hit horror movie Saw III.

The slasher film was released in time for Halloween and contains several horrific scenes. It is currently number one in both the UK and North American box office charts.

One woman had to be taken to hospital, while two adults were treated by medics after fainting in Stevenage, Herts. In a separate case, a man collapsed at a cinema in Peterborough.

The woman, in her 20s, was discharged from the hospital after being treated, while the two other cinemagoers were left with friends and relatives without needing to go to hospital.
