"The Walk's" stunning 3D visual effects are causing some people in the audience to vomit when they're overcome by vertigo sensations or a fear of heights.

The new film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt chronicles the achievements of Philippe Petit, the high-wire artist who scaled the heights of New York City's Twin Towers in 1974. The World Trade Center was still under construction at the time Petit and some friends strung a wire between the buildings for him to walk across. The feat thrust Petit into the international spotlight, People magazine reported.

"I was half-man, half-bird dancing in the sky with the biggest city in the world looking at me," Petit, 66, told People.

"The Walk" was developed from the Oscar-winning biography "Man on Wire." In telling the story of Petit's adventurous jaunts — he crossed at least eight times between the two buildings before he left the wire to be arrested by waiting police — the film's high-wire stunts are both stunning and nauseating to moviegoers.

Mark Harris, a New York pop-culture journalist, attended the premiere of the movie and said it could definitely cause problems for anyone who may be scared of heights. He tweeted that he heard vomiting was a problem after seeing the death-defying stunts in the film.



Later, Harris poked fun at the Internet's reaction to the idea of vomiting after seeing a movie:
