Bones and All: Chloë Sevigny on Guadagnino’s reaction in Venice

“When I first saw it, I was so vocal,” Sevigny said. “I’m one of those people in the theater who gasp and scream.”

Chloë Sevigny may have starred in American Psycho, but it was the cannibal sequences in Bones and All that really shook her to the bone. But director Luca Guadagnino didn’t have it.

Sevigny told Interview magazine that the ‘Suspiria’ writer gave her the ‘stink eye’ at the world premiere of ‘Bones and All’ at the 2022 Venice Film Festival because of her loud panting in the theatre. Bones and All centers on a cannibal couple, played by Timothée Chalamet and Taylor Russell, who hunt tramps to quench their thirst.

“I was so vocal when I first saw it, but I’m also a very vocal moviegoer,” Sevigny said. “I’m one of those people in the theater who gasp and scream. Even in Venice I gasped during one of the cannibal scenes and Luca [Guadagnino] turned and gave me a stinky look.

Sevigny said: “I was like, ‘Oh my God. Wait until you screen this in New York and get some New Yorkers in and it really comes alive.’”

Sevigny noted that while she keeps her particularly shocking sequence under wraps, her small role includes voiceover and “some growls.” “Strangely, Luca texted me. He says, ‘I’m in the Midwest and I’m doing this film. I have a small but crucial role. Would you come and do it?’” Sevigny said of how she got involved in the project. “And I was like, ‘I’d come for a line for you.’ Then I got the script. I was like, ‘I don’t even have a line.'”

She joked, “And I was like, ‘That motherfucker again.'”

The film will premiere in theaters and screens at the 2022 New York Film Festival on November 23, following its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival. The Bones and All cast includes Mark Rylance, Michael Stuhlbarg and Halloween Ends writer-director David Gordon Green. Bones and All was written by Suspiria writer David Kajganich and adapted from Camille DeAngelis’ 2015 YA novel.

Director Guadagnino told IndieWire that “only Timothée can play this role” in a cannibal love story that clearly doesn’t belong in the horror genre.

“I think ‘Suspiria’ was aggressively provocative. I think this one is a lot more composed in his self-esteem,” Guadagnino said previously. “My real hope is that audiences won’t reject the film as provocative because it’s about a taboo like cannibalism.”

Guadagnino continued, “With Bones and All, I wasn’t interested in the shock value at all, which I hate. I was interested in these people. I understood their moral struggle very deeply. I understood what was happening to them. I’m not here to judge anyone. You can make a film about cannibals if you fight with them and don’t commit cannibalism as a theme or tool of horror.”
