Jaime Winstone says she asked for a particular type of blood on the set of her new horror film.
The actress, 26, stars in and co-produced Brit-flick Elfie Hopkins.
As co-producer and horror nut, she found it her task to request more blood on set.
"Quite neat, stylised blood," she said.
"I'm not so much into real gore and splatter-fests, like Hostel and Saw, which is borderline snuff".
Jaime said of her co-producer role: "I had to do it because there was a certain amount of things I needed control of, otherwise I would have felt vulnerable."
She said her character Elfie was "a dream role to play", adding: "I feel there's been a gap in the British film industry for this type of entertainment, which we more than fill. I can't wait for the world to meet Elfie, she'll kick ass."
