Jennifer Lawrence has a new interview with the Yorkshire Post about her new movie releasing this weekend, House at the End of the Street. She talks about how horror movies affect her and how the movie is grounded in reality rather than being ‘cheap thrills’.
She says, ““It’s tricky. I shouldn’t watch scary movies because my imagination is out of control. Then I’m scared for months – screaming, running back and forth from the bathroom to the bed like I’m being chased by somebody. But I love scary movies. I have to force myself not to watch them because it just affects me forever and turns me into an insane person.”
She also talks about what she loved about the script and the director, saying, ““What I loved about the script is that it wasn’t about gore. That’s what I loved about Mark – [he wrote] very well developed characters. You find yourself getting scared for these people from a personal place. It was a very sophisticated way to scare an audience. Mark saw it as a character piece: no cheap scares. Just something that’s in us as human beings – being frightened.”
Unfortunately, ‘House at the end of the Street’ is getting mostly negative reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, despite critics still praising Lawrence’s performance and charm in the movie.
