The movie — about Philippe Petit, a Frenchman who walked between the Twin Towers in 1974 on a high wire — has some watchers getting nauseous and even vomiting.

Tweeted journalist Mark Harris:

Added Denise Widman, board director of the Boston Jewish Film Festival to the New York Post (via CBS), “The last 20 minutes of the film I had to look away a couple of times because of the sensation of the height. I felt a little bit queasy.”

According to director Robert Zemeckis, it was his intention to give watchers feelings of vertigo.

The film hits theatres tomorrow (Oct. 2). We recommend packing some barf bags just in case.
