How to spook these stars

Eve, Russell Simmons, Thandie Newton and John Leguizamo were out Monday night for a screening of the new post-apocalyptic horror-thriller, “Vanishing on 7th Street.”

Eve, Russell Simmons, Thandie Newton and John Leguizamo were out Monday night for a screening of the new post-apocalyptic horror-thriller, “Vanishing on 7th Street.” We asked some of the celebs in attendance what their favorite scary movie was as a kid (except for actor Jacob Latimore who, at 14, is practically still one).

With on-the-scene reporting by Jeryl Brunner.

Nightlife entrepreneur Amy Sacco: “The first horror movie I saw as a kid was ‘The Blob.’ I was hooked and horrified but wouldn’t eat JELL-O for weeks! I was about 6. They used to have a Saturday afternoon horror showcase so I watched them all every Saturday with my brothers. They thought it was funny.”

Actor Jacob Latimore: “I haven’t watched any scary movies lately. I’ve seen this movie a couple of times, but it doesn’t scare me since I was on set. I feel funny watching it. It’s exciting to see me — I think, ‘I’m in a movie!’”

Julie Alexandria from MTV’s “The Seven”: “Stephen King’s ‘It’ freaked me forever. I’m still terrified. Pennywise, the clown hiding in the grates underneath the streets — frightening. Clowns were forever damaged in my mind.”

“Vanishing on 7th Street” director Brad Anderson: “The first scary movie was ‘Blacula,’ about a black Dracula. At the end, the light hits him and he just crumbles and decays. When you’re 5 or 6, it’s scary. I don’t know why I saw it.”
