“It has to be ‘The Human Centipede’. One, I don’t like bugs. Two, the thought of people being sewn together … that just terrifies me.”

“I know there’s plenty more that I’ve seen, but the only one that’s coming to mind right now is ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ because it’s based on a true story. It’s kind of freaky.”

“Hmm, I guess ‘The Exorcist’ (laughs). There was a couple of specific scenes that … really, really shocked me and sort of just surprised me where I guess I wasn’t ready for them.”

“‘Conjuring 1’ … no, actually the devil nun. Maybe ‘Conjuring 2’. I’m really scared of this … nun, devil nun.”

“‘Conjuring 2’, because … it’s like devil. It’s really scary.”
