Shrink Stresses Flashback Fears for ‘World Trade Center’ Film

LITTLE FALLS, N.J. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A police psychotherapist in Little Falls, New Jersey, is stressing over Oliver Stone’s upcoming 9/11 film, World Trade Center.

Peter Killeen fears the violent depiction of the WTC attacks could cause severe post-traumatic stress disorder with folks who survived the disaster.

He says the film’s visual and sound effects might be so realistic that people who see the film could suffer flashbacks as well as nausea, queasiness and excessive sweating.

Naturally, those who lost loved ones or witnessed the tragedy are most at risk, but Killeen says everyday folks could also be affected.

For those susceptible to possible WTC flashbacks, Killeen suggests seeking professional help in the form of psychotherapy or medication prior to seeing the movie, which opens August 9.
