(8 Oct 2019) ‘US’ KIDS SAY OTHER HORROR MOVIES SCARED THEM MORE
Two of the children who starred in Jordan Peele’s horror film “Us” say they were more frightened watching other scary movies.
14-year-old Shahadi Wright Joseph recently saw “IT Chapter Two,” which she said gave her chills and was even more terrifying than the first one.
“This one was much scarier and had a lot of jump scares in it, so I like that,” Shahadi said at the opening of Halloween Horror Nights, which runs through early November at Universal Studios.
Her 11-year-old co-star Evan Alex said his favorite scary movie is 2018’s “Halloween.”
“Oh, the terror, especially the black boy,” Evan said, referring to 10-year-old Jibrail Nantambu’s scene-stealing performance in the slasher movie. “That’s always going to be my favorite Halloween scene.”
The movie stuck with Evan so much, he said “the first time was the only time I actually watched that thing” and might be his last.
Filmmaker and musician Rob Zombie, who was at Halloween Horror Nights promoting his new horror flick “3 From Hell,” said he loves all the classic monster movies, like “Frankenstein” and “Dracula.”
“I think they’re some of the first movies I ever saw as a kid,” he said. “We never called anything horror movies, I never even heard that term before. We called everything monster movies because they just had monsters and that’s what we loved as kids … That’s what got me hooked.”
Actor Bill Moseley, who has starred in a number of cult classic horror films – including “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2” and “House of 1,000 Corpses” and is in “3 From Hell” – said he thinks the best horror movie ever made was “The Exorcist.”
“It’s such a good story,” Moseley said. “It’s so well acted, it’s so scary, it’s so brilliant and everything about it is what I love in horror movies.”
