Danielle Panabaker chatted about ‘Piranha 3DD’ with Screen Crush.
So let’s talk about horror, why not?
Between ‘Friday the 13th,’ ‘The Crazies’ and now ‘Piranha 3DD,’ you’ve worked quite a bit in the genre. Are you a fan? Did you like it as a kid?
You know, it’s really funny. I am actually a big sissy, and growing up I never used to watch horror movies. ‘Bambi’ gave me nightmares.
‘Bambi’ is scary. We’ve all cried ‘Bambi’ tears.
Yes. Very sad. So I’ve been kind of a sissy about horror movies and it’s been ironic, because I’ve made a living in them for the past couple of years.
Do you watch your own movies, or do they scare you?
I pretty much just see them once. I don’t need to see them again. And it’s odd, having read the script, but being caught up in the moment and the suspense and the music and everything that comes together, I still jump.
