Making the best of a scary situation

(Starts at 8:55)

Before she signed on to star in the new film "Hereditary," actress Toni Collette had said she was swearing off emotionally heavy films for a while. But instead of a light rom-com, she ended up signing on to a film that some critics are calling the scariest movie of the summer. Despite the extremely intense and raw performance that was required of her, Collette tells John Horn that the experience of working on "Hereditary" was one of the most satisfying — and pleasant — working experiences of her life.
