ReelCalm is a community based app designed to identify potentially harmful triggers in movies, so that those with past trauma or anxiety can watch in peace.

One of our favourite things to do is cuddle up on the couch with a bag of popcorn and watch a movie. Movies are an incredible form of entertainment, but unfortunately there are a lot of movies that contain scenes some of us would rather see. Movies with scenes of sexual assault, natural disasters or overt racism can be incredibly damaging to thousands of people. With ReelCalm, you can help to warn people BEFORE they watch those movies, ensuring that everybody knows what to expect when they press PLAY.

Great idea but not functional

I saw your post on Reddit, r/emetophobia and thought “wait, I love movies and I have a crippling fear of vomiting - this is the app for me!” I was really excited to try it, but the reviews are not accurate! On many movies that DO have explicit vomit scenes I saw no warning anywhere for emetophobia. This would really be nerve racking to me. It’s almost worst to not know if there’s a vomit scene or not than to expect there won’t be one and then it takes you by full surprise! Once all the films are updated with all possible triggers, I’ll change my review.
