Jessica Chastain Says ‘IT: Chapter Two’ Has Bloodiest Scene in Horror Film History (Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Jessica Chastain revealed quite the spoiler during her appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” about her upcoming film, “IT: Chapter Two” — that it has a scene that might have the most blood in the history of horror films.

“OK, I’m going to say something, and I think I’m going to be in trouble, but I’m going to do it,” Chastain said on Wednesday’s late-night show. “It might be a spoiler. But in the movie, there’s a scene that someone said on set that it’s the most blood that’s ever been in a horror film in a scene. And I’ll tell you, the next day I was like pulling blood out of my eyeballs. Fake blood.”

Really? Bloodier than “Suspiria,” “Carrie” or “The Shining?”
