[Interview] Charlotte Creaghan Talks ‘In a Violent Nature’, THAT Yoga Scene, and Halloween

The brutal new slasher movie In a Violent Nature is in theaters now, and we recently talked to Charlotte Creaghan about being at the center of the film’s most memorable scene, as her character Aurora meets masked killer Johnny while enjoying some clifftop yoga.

In the film, When a locket is removed from a collapsed fire tower in the woods that entombs the rotting corpse of Johnny (Ry Barrett; watch our interview here), a vengeful spirit spurred on by a horrific 60-year old crime, his body is resurrected and becomes hellbent on retrieving it. The undead golem hones in on the group of vacationing teens responsible for the theft and proceeds to methodically slaughter them one by one in his mission to get it back – along with anyone in his way.

Written and directed by Chris Nash, the film takes the fresh approach of staying with the killer for almost the entire movie rather than following those he is stalking (and killing), making for a unique viewing experience that gives new blood Johnny far more screen time than any other slasher got in their first outings.

When asked if there was any indication when she joined the cast that her character’s meetup with Johnny would be one for the horror highlight reels, Creaghan tells HDN (spoiler warning), “It was all in the script. Yeah, I had to read it multiple times to let it sort of sink in and to actually comprehend what was going to happen. Then, once I talk to the director, Chris, he confirmed that, yes, I was going to be turned into a human pretzel.

“Of course reading it definitely was very wild, and almost funny, because it was so outrageous. But being on set and then actually seeing it made it obviously so much more real. So it definitely happened in stages. And once we were doing the technical aspects of it on set, that’s when I realized. I was like, ‘This is huge’. It was a big death.” (laughs)

On her soon-to-be iconic line, “Why don’t you come find me when you’re done with your swim, and maybe you can you can stretch me out a little more?” Charlotte said, “That line was definitely tricky to get out without, you know, someone laughing, because it’s quite a bold and outrageous thing to say. But it obviously made sense for the next time that you see me. Yeah, it’s kind of campy and fun that it all comes together that way.” 

In our video conversation last week, we also of course we talked Halloween, how celebrating the holiday growing up led to her passion for acting, and if she’s ready to see Johnny and Aurora costumes this year.
