This is up along the lines of what Hostel director Eli Roth calls the ultimate publicity stunt (that he didn't setup). The BBC reported in an article that 3 people in one night fainted while watching Saw III and paramedics were called at each instance. As much as we all support the attendance of great horror films like Saw III, the paramedic said it the best:
"If you know you're squeamish, don't go," warned a spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service.
"This is obviously a blood-thirsty film. Some of the scenes are fairly horrific," Matthew Ware told the BBC News website.
Either way, quite fun news. I know the Saw III filmmakers will be quite happy - this kind of response is always the "yes! we've done an amazing job" kind. Bravo to Saw III!
