For those who haven’t seen the beauty-obsessed horror film, “The Neon Demon,” you’re in for a real treat. In a new featurette shared by Broad Green Pictures, Nicolas Winding Refn and Elle Fanning enthusiastically discuss their latest project.
“I wanted to make it as a horror film because I’m an entertainer,” says the director in the clip.
The film follows Jesse (Fanning), an aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles and quickly becomes the city’s newest “It-Girl.” Her beauty and youth are then devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.
“He is the king of violence and blood,” Fanning says about the director. The actress had previously stated that she was drawn to the film because of its horror features, and the opportunity to delve deep into a new kind of role she’s not used to. “I think everyone has a side to them that is a little darker,” she told Variety. “Going to that place was actually very, very fun and we made her a little bit darker than the script was initially.”
The one-minute clip also features Keanu Reeves explaining what his interpretation of a “demon” is.
“The Neon Demon” is currently out in theaters.
