Texas Chainsaw meets Poltergeist?
Sebastian Stan spoke with MTV about his upcoming turn in Captain America and during the chat the actor brought up another film, The Apparition (opening August 20), a supernatural thriller he was in the midst of shooting when he booked the big budget Marvel movie.
<>“It was amazing,” he said of Apparition. “We were all included creatively in the process. Todd Lincoln, who wrote and directed it, wanted that. We had rehearsal time when we could come together and sometimes rewrite things for the better. We had time to improvise and see what we were missing. We discovered a lot of stuff that way. Both Tom and Ashley are coming from such huge franchises themselves, they’ve sort of experienced every corner of celebrity or hype, so I kind of felt like I was more on the sidelines to that.”
Stan co-stars with Ashley Greene in the film which tells of a college experiment steeped in the world of the paranormal that goes awry.
“To me, it was a mixture of “The Strangers” and “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “Poltergeist.” Todd had a huge list of movies he wanted us to watch. We saw how horror was done in the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s into today. It’s definitely more psychological than just “get scared!”
