The Possession actress Kyra Sedgwick has revealed that her husband Kevin Bacon was left "terrified" after seeing The Blair Witch Project, though he is far more scared of mice then horror movies. The 47-year-old actress was speaking at the Los Angeles premiere of her new movie, produced by horror-guru Sam Raimi.
Krya told the Press Association of Bacon, "He gets spooked by mice. Probably not horror movies so much.But we watched The Blair Witch Project back when we actually thought it was real. In the beginning it sort of made the rounds in Hollywood and people actually thought it was real.. We watched it in our house in Connecticut. We were like 'Oh my God, that's real, that's happening', and we were terrified". In 'The Possession', Kyra and Jeffrey Dean Morgan play the parents of a girl who becomes obsessed with a mysterious antique box containing a dangerous spirit. Sedgwick said, "I've always been a fan of horror, and if you can do a really good one, it can be an everlasting, terrifying memory for people. I was haunted by The Exorcist, The Omen and The Poltergeist as a kid, so I wanted to be part of that genre".
The actress is actually about to begin work on another horror flick, with Daniel Radcliffe. The pair will star in 'Kill Your Darlings', about a 1944 murder that draws together the great beat poets of the day, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs.
