Christina Ricci is known for playing odd characters with a darker edge, and she doesn’t shy away from that narrative. “I always find the more extreme the character, the easier to play in many ways,” explained Ricci. However, her gloomy persona on-screen is nothing like how she is off-camera. “The further the character is from […]
She hesitates to diagnose the oddball Misty, but the words 'sociopathic' and 'borderline psychopathic' do come into play.
Christina Ricci, a 1990s child star, has newfound confidence onscreen in her horror film 'Monstrous' and Emmy-ready Showtime hit 'Yellowjackets.'
The hybrid movie "Monstrous" suffers from an identity crisis; taking cues from the genres of horror, mystery, period-drama, and thriller, it fails to capture the spirit of any — making for a dull 90-minute viewing experience. It's a sobering lesson in how "less is more" when it comes to indie films.
“Dark.” “Precocious.” “Quirky.” “Outspoken.” Chances are these are the kinds of things you heard or thought about Christina Ricci in the ’90s. The actress, now 42, starred in a string of movies during that decade that cemented her image as the opposite of the stereotypical smiley film ingenue, and her off-screen persona — in which she tended toward edgy remarks — added to the rep. Like so many icons of ’90s culture, Ricci has made a major comeback in recent years. Her latest role is in the thriller “Monstrous,” out Friday, May 13. In it, she plays a young mother fleeing dark...
Ricci said on The Tonight Show of her question to the writers: "'We don’t eat Shauna’s baby, do we?’ They said no.”
With Showtime delivering audiences episodes of Yellowjackets one week at a time, fans were allowed to speculate and theorize about all of the possible explanations for mysterious plot points over the course of its debut season, but one theory that even star Christina Ricci herself had to set straight is that young characters stranded in the remote wilderness didn't resort to eating a baby. Whether or not Ricci was given a complete breakdown of the trajectory of the rest of the series is unclear, though that one plot point is something she was happy to clarify not just for herself, but also for viewers.
Christina Ricci has read the fan theories about Yellowjackets and she has some thoughts. Ricci, 42, appeared on Thursday's episode of The Tonight Show where host, Jimmy Fallon, asked the actress about some of the craziest fan theories that have come out of the wildly popular Showtime series. Fallon revealed...
A terrifying new horror awaits Laura (Christina Ricci) and her seven-year-old son Cody when they flee her abusive ex-husband and try to settle into a new life in an idyllic and remote lakeside farmhouse. Still traumatized, their physical and mental well-being are pushed to the limit as their fragile existence is threatened.
‘Monstrous’ Trailer Shows Christina Ricci Fighting an Abusive Ex-Husband and Aquatic Terrors in New Horror Film
Screen Media Films has released a new trailer for Monstrous, an upcoming horror film featuring Yellowjacket star Christina Ricci. In the film, Ricci plays the part of a mother willing to do anything to protect her son from menaces, both ordinary and supernatural. The trailer starts with an upbeat song...
How do we overcome trauma? A mother and her son find the answer is far from easy in “Monstrous.” Recovering from an abusive situation, the pair quickly discover that monsters can come from surprising places. The horror film hails from director Chris Sivertson and writer Carol Chrest. Sivertson is no stranger to the horror genre; he co-wrote and co-directed “All Cheerleaders Die” with Lucky McKee. That eye for twisting domestic narratives meant the filmmaker saw potential in Chrest’s use of a retro ‘50s setting. “It was a decade when all the trappings of the American Dream coalesced into one specific fantasy,” he said. “A fantasy that was unattainable for many. And even for the people who could theoretically achieve it, dreams often become nightmares.”
