Interview: Katee Sackhoff And Emily Alyn Lind Talk THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT 2: GHOSTS OF GEORGIA
Special thanks to Lionsgate and Golden Circle Films, I recently got to interview stars of THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT 2: GHOSTS OF GEORGIA, Katee Sackhoff and Emily Alyn Lind about the movie and their experience filming this latest horror installment which will open February 1st, 2013.
I even got to ask Katee about the new RIDDICK movie with which she was involved.
Check out the entire interview below…
RS: Katee, let’s start with you. You dyed your hair different color in this film. Was that the director’s choice, your choice, or your character was written that way?
KS: “I think that it was a decision by the producer and the director for me to try and have a more uniformed look between me and the character who’s just naturally dark and my hair is really light so it was kind of a decision for that purpose and then when we actually got to meet the actual family, Joyce was actually red head so it was kind of cute that way.
RS: Emily, this is a very physically demanding film for somebody of your age. Did you get hurt or injured at all during the filming process?
EAL: “I kinda got hurt at the end. I was doing a scene, I was walking, I’m super afraid of the bees. I remember walking, being scared. All of a sudden, I got stung and I’m like screaming inside and then they took the sting out.
I’m fine now, the stinger’s gone away.”
RS: Emily, are you aware that you were acting alongside Battlestar Galactica’s Cpt. Starbuck here?
KS: “What’s funny is when we started shooting, Emily wasn’t even born. It was one of those moments when you realize that you’re starting to age (laugh).”
RS: Katee, explain a bit the process of that one scene where your character’s stomach appeared to have been sown, was that all visual effects or some of it were practical stuff?
KS: “Everything happened on the stomach was visual effects, but everything that was happening up at my face and my mouth was real. So there was some kind of contraption that they built that fit inside my mouth to do that scene.”
RS: Katee, why do you like doing genre movies like this?
KS: “I like doing movies that I myself like to watch. I think I love genre movies; I grew up watching sci-fi and horror. Horror has changed a little since I was a kid. Horror is a bit more horror now, different than Alfred Hitchcock. Exactly! It’s different. It’s scarier now! Now it’s really scary. I don’t like the movies now. I can’t watch the SAW movies, I can’t do any of that. but I grew up watching these so I’ve just always been wanting to do movies that I’d like to see. So I got excited by this.”
RS: Emily, was there a moment where the characters in the film perhaps really scare you?
EAL: “One of the ghosts was scary because of the makeup and hair. In one of those scenes, I see the station master for the first time and he is so horrifying, you’ll have to see the movie. He’s so horrifying, that scene where he goes up to the window. It was the scariest thing I’ve ever seen.
I’m glad I didn’t pass out.”
RS: We had The Haunting In Connecticut and now we have this, Ghosts Of Georgia, will there be another installment, say The Haunting In L.A. or something like that perhaps?
KS: “I haven’t heard any talks about it but I think that every time you do a movie like the HAUNTING series, it does lend itself for a continuation of movies to come afterwards. I think if this movie does as well as The Haunting In Connecticut did, then there’s always a possibility there’d be more. I think there is a market for this kind of more old school scary horror movie where you actually could go see it with your children and still be scared and people aren’t getting ripped apart. I think there is a market for this movie, I’m sure there’ll be more.”
RS: Your character, mercenary named dahl in the new RIDDICK movie, is she antagonist or is she also Riddick’s love interest?
KS: “I’m not going to give that away. But there are two more women in the movie that are gone by page three and then my character is the only woman in the whole movie. It is science fiction, there’s a little bit love interest but I’m not going to give anything away.”
RS: What can we the fans anticipate about this new RIDDICK movie other than the fact that it’s back to R. What we can see new compared to its predecessors: Pitch Black and The Chronicles?
KS: “I think we’re going back to the roots of Pitch Black. There’s a little bit of necromonger world in it to kind of satisfy the fans’ appetite, but I think this is back to basics chronicles of Riddick, and really rich tones to it and I think the fans are going to like it.”
