Geena Davis has a history with horror
Do you notice more weirdness in the world when working on a project like this one?
No, not really, no. I made another horror film quite a while ago, The Fly. Well,
Beetlejuice was humorous… But I don’t get spooked by stuff that I know we’re just faking. People say, “Oh, you’re doing these very heavy scenes. Do you bring it home with you?” I don’t really get impacted in those kinds of ways. But I love scary stuff. I love being a part of it.
Are you a horror movie fan?
I love horror movies. Oh, yeah, absolutely. The Exorcist curled my hair. Like most people, I saw it when I was a teenager and I was scarred for life. It’s really the best horror movie ever made. I think a lot of people agree.
Do you believe in evil?
Oh, I don’t know. I believe there is evil in the world, and we’ve certainly seen instances of it historically and currently, but whether there’s a being who is in charge of it and responsible for inserting it in people… I’m not so sure. Everybody is capable of an extreme range of behaviours, and it’s [about] what you are exposed to and what your character can resist.
