Jessica Chastain revealed quite the spoiler during her appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” about her upcoming film, “IT: Chapter Two” — that it has a scene that might have the most blood in the history of horror films.

“OK, I’m going to say something, and I think I’m going to be in trouble, but I’m going to do it,” Chastain said on Wednesday’s late-night show. “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 like pulling blood out of my eyeballs. Fake blood.”

Really? Bloodier than “Suspiria,” “Carrie” or “The Shining?”

“IT: Chapter Two” takes place 27 years after the events of last year’s monster hit, as the members of the “Losers Club” have all grown up and moved out of Derry… until a devastating phone call brings them back.

Bill Skarsgard will return as Pennywise the Clown. Other cast members include Bill Hader (Richie Tozier), James McAvoy (Bill Denbrough), Jay Ryan (Ben Hanscom), James Ransone (Eddie Kaspbrak), Isaiah Mustafa (Mike Hanlon) and Andy Bean (Stanley Uris).

“IT” grossed $327.5 million in the U.S. and Canada in 2017, and $700.4 million worldwide, on a $35 million production budget. The film had the No. 1 opening weekend for a fall release, and was 2017’s No. 7 highest-grossing movie.

“IT: Chapter Two” will hit theaters on Sept. 6.
