Jessica Chastain was terrified watching herself in 'Mama'.
The Golden Globe winner - who picked up the Best Actress gong for 'Zero Dark Thirty' on Sunday (13.01.13) - confessed her new indie horror movie is so nail-bitingly scary that she even upset herself watching it on the big screen, while her friend was reduced to a nervous wreck beside her.
The 31-year-old star plays Annabel, whose boyfriend Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) takes in his orphaned nieces only to discover a jealous ghostly presence has followed them into their home.
Jessica laughed: ''When Annabel first meets Mama, that's really like, 'Oh my GOD!' I saw it with a friend of mine and he jumped, then he jumped again, and then he almost curled into my lap. I was laughing the whole time because I've never seen a guy do something like that.
''But that scene, it's not like it's just one jump, it keeps going - it's pretty incredible that whole sequence.''
She said: ''Guillermo, he's really passionate about this genre, and visually, he has just brilliant ideas. It was exciting as I'm such a fan of 'Pan's Labyrinth' and 'Hellboy,' so to be involved in something that he was working on was fantastic - it was part of the main reason I did 'Mama.'
''He's so intelligent and insightful about the genre, I learnt so much from him. For me, the great thing about this film is that it's a mixture of genres. Yes it's a horror film, but it's also like a Grimm's fairy tale, it's fantasy, and it's also a drama.''
