It: Chapter Two will arrive later this year and with it might come one of the bloodiest scenes in horror. According to Jessica Chastain, who plays the adult Beverly Marsh in the upcoming sequel, the scene in question was so bloody, she was still dealing with it the next day. Not to mention the fact that it might be the bloodiest scene to ever appear in a horror film, though we’re not sure who is keeping the records for that particular category.

The actress recently appeared on The Tonight Show and had a chat with host Jimmy Fallon, briefly touching upon It: Chapter Two and teasing just how scary the upcoming film is. Have a look below for her thoughts on that very bloody scene, along with the video of the full segment.

I'm gonna say something and I think I'm gonna in trouble, but I'm gonna do it. It might be a spoiler, but in the movie there's a scene that someone said on set that it's the most blood that's ever been in a horror film in a scene. And I'll tell you, the next day I was pulling blood out of my eyeballs.

It: Chapter Two brings the Losers' club into adulthood with James McAvoy as Bill, Jay Ryan as Ben, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Jessica Chastain as Beverly, Andy Bean as Stanley, and last but not least, James Ransone as Eddie. It was also previously announced that Xavier Dolan and Will Beinbrink would be playing the roles of Adrian Mellon and Tom Rogan respectively. Bill Skarsgård is, of course, reprising his role as Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

The film has an expected release date of September 6th, 2019. Andy Muschietti is returning to direct with Gary Dauberman writing the script. Both films are based off the 1986 best-selling novel It by Stephen King, one of his most notable works.
