His behaviour may be an unconditional response to a movie with graphic, bloody scenes. Got so bad that saying cut it out left him queasy. Experienced a vasovagal syncope thus, causing his fainting. Increased hr and bp in film so, body compensated by lowering these, and amount of blood reaching his brain decreased significantly until he fainted: this seems to be inherited, which could be related to phobia in family history. Rapid increases in hr caused by emotions may have trigged a stronger, more intense, broreflex: this will increase or decrease bp in an effort to maintain homeostasis.
