NOTE: This article is 6 months old and may not include the most recent information.

Jenna Ortega, the star of Netflix’s hit show “Wednesday,” recently sat down with Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” on Friday, December 16th to talk about her love for horror films. Ortega, who has starred in “Scream” and “X” earlier this year, spoke about the therapeutic and fun nature of making horror movies.

“I don’t know what it is about having blood thrown on your face and running around screaming bloody murder, but it really is so therapeutic, so much fun,” Ortega said. “Everyone who works on horror sets loves horror, people do special effects because they grew up loving gore.”

But Ortega also highlighted the close-knit nature of the cast and crew on horror sets, stating that it has an impact on their reactions to otherwise terrifying elements in the films. “We can never take anything seriously,” Ortega said. “So Ghostface could literally be in the middle of their monologue and we’re having to restart takes because we’re laughing so hard.”

Overall, Ortega’s love for horror films shines through in her enthusiasm for the genre and the joy she finds in the process of making them.

Jenna also discussed the iconic Wednesday dance that has gone viral since the premiere of the Netflix series to the Cramps song “Goo Goo Muck” and paying tribute to the original 1960s Wednesday Addams with a signature dance move.
