Millicent Simmonds on the Need for Diverse Representation in Film and Working with John Krasinski in ‘A Quiet Place’ [Interview]

Horror films often fall into the same cliches and deliver cheap scares that don’t end up being scary at all. If you can see it coming, it’s not effective.

In anticipation for the Blu-ray and DVD release of one of the best horror films in the past decade on July 10th, I chat with the extremely talented Millicent Simmonds on why representation in film matters, working with John Krasinski (A Quiet Place) and Todd Haynes (Wonderstruck), her villainous ambitions for her next role, and more.
