Oct 29 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Emergency medical service personnel or EMS had to be called to theaters during the premiere of Danny Boyle’s new movie, when shocked movie-goers began to faint, have seizures, and throw up while watching the gory film.

The movie, called ‘127 Hours’ tells the story of Aron Ralston (played by James Franco) as he struggled to survive after his right arm was trapped beneath a boulder while he was exploring a cave in Utah.

After he was trapped for five days, or roughly 127 hours, trying desperately to free himself, Franco finally decided to take a pen knife and severe the pinned arm in order to survive. It was during the realistic scene of him cutting off his own arm that viewers went into panic mode, and paramedics were called to the theater. The arm amputation scene is said to be one of the most realistic ones ever filmed.

The Director, Danny Boyle insists that he did not plan for the film to cause so much upset, he did plan for the shock value to get his point across. He wanted to show Ralston’s pain, not scare anyone, and he wanted to bring home the message that no matter what you are going though, never lose hope.

The film is based on the book written by Ralston himself about his ordeal, ‘Between A Rock And A Hard Place’.
