Abigail Breslin on The Happening: 'I'm Not Going to Sleep'
The 12-year-old star says she is traumatized by her brother's new movie
The Happening is one summer movie that is decidedly not kid-friendly.
Although he is most famous for his twist endings (The Sixth Sense), director M. Night Shyamalan gets downright gory in his first R-rated film, which premiered Tuesday in New York City. The doomsday thriller stars Mark Wahlberg as a father trying to keep his family safe from a mysterious airborne illness.
At Tuesday’s screening, costar Spencer Breslin, 16 – whose sister is Little Miss Sunshine actress Abigail Breslin, 12 – said he planned to cover Abigail’s eyes “a couple of times.”
But it must not have worked: Leaving the theater after the screening, Abigail told her parents, “I’m not going to sleep.”
