We weren’t particularly fans of The caveBrendan Muldowney’s new feature adaptation of his own horror short film The ten steps. (More range, and more mythology, are rarely a good substitute for the pure punch of the horrible stranger.) That being said, we can’t deny that star Elisha Cuthbert is a highlight of the film, or that she’s put your time in the scary movie sliced - something she reflected on in a recent Bloody disgusting interview promote the new movie.
Cuthbert – who has been performing since he was a teenager – started by looking back on his time as a member of The Midnight Society on Nickelodeon’s Are you scared of the dark?, which she joined in 1999 when the series was rebooted (for the first time) with a second generation of campfire storytellers. “It was like a kid’s camp,” she says, speaking of weeks of filming in the show’s man-made interior. forest and its semi-real campfire. “As actors, we really felt like these children of society.
Cuthbert then spoke about what is probably his most publicized horror role: serving as the protagonist by Jaume Collet-Serra 2005 remake of wax house. Cuthbert praised the film’s look and production designnoting, “TThis whole town was built in Australia for I don’t even know how much money. But it was a real legitimate city that was built in wax. The facade itself. I couldn’t believe it.
And then we come to the heartbreaking good things, aka, the joys of some very practical effects:
OWe couldn’t figure out how to do the lip collage without making it ridiculous. I had to be tense and fighting for my life, but I had to find a way to keep my mouth shut. So it just wasn’t working and I finally said to the prop guys, ‘Just take the glue. Just take real glue. So we ended up really sticking my lips together – not with crazy glue, but with something very similar. So I couldn’t separate them. There really wasn’t any other way to do it, without it looking silly. So we went there.
Then yes: Jthank you for this instant mental claustrophobia, Elisha Cuthbert.
