It was just about this time last year that we all started to get to know Alexandra Daddario. Yes, even back in 2010 she had quite a list of credits to her name including a small part in The Squid and the Whaleand a handful of television appearances, but it was really Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief that brought her some serious attention. Now, not only is she in the comedy Hall Pass, but Stevan Mena’s latest horror film, too.
In Bereavement, the prequel to Mena’s first feature film, Malevolence, Daddario stars as Allison. After a family tragedy, she’s sent to live with her uncle and his family out in Minersville, Pennsylvania. While out for a run, she takes notice of an old slaughterhouse just down the road. Little does she know, that’s where Graham Sutter is hard at work teaching a young boy named Martin the ins and outs of torture and murder. After catching Martin in the window, Allison becomes a little too curious and takes it upon herself to investigate.
Bereavement is certainly not light entertainment in the least. Mena really knows what he’s doing when it comes to bringing a sick and twisted story to the big screen and in this case, Daddario is right in the middle of it all. She may be afraid of horror films herself, but shooting one is a different story. Oddly enough, Daddario found it far easier to perform in the more malicious moments as compared to the quieter ones. Check out what the actress had to say about that, working with Mena, her plans for the future and much more in the interview below.
