After teasing on Sirius XM’s The Jess Cagle Show that Smile 2 is so gory that he “vomited off-camera,” Lukas Gage clarified his comments while speaking with The Hollywood Reporter on the red carpet for Road House‘s New York City premiere.

“I didn’t puke, I dry-heaved,” noted the Euphoria alum. “I was really shocked how intense it is on the day. You just think, ‘Oh, it’s acting, it’s gonna be fine,’ but that movie is so scary. The whole crew was terrified. That smile itself is just so creepy and then you throw the most gory scenes on top of it, I just, yeah, I have a weak stomach too. I’m a wimp.” 

Gage kept mum on his role in the movie, but expressed how ecstatic he was to be part of the hit horror flick’s sequel. “I don’t say this about a lot of things that I do, ’cause I’m the biggest critic ever — I am so proud of it, and I think it’s so scary, and I think [director] Parker Finn did it again, like, he just takes it to the next level and we have some really cool cameos happening in this movie.” 

Smile 2 features a new cast, which besides Gage includes Naomi Scott, Rosemarie DeWitt, Dylan Gelula and Raúl Castillo. Kyle Gallner is also said to reprise his role as Joel. No plot details have been confirmed yet.

During his Jess Cagle Show appearance, Gage shared that the movie wrapped filming earlier this month. “If you loved the first movie, you’re going to love this one,” he assured listeners. “It’s so terrifying. It’s the first time I’ve ever been on a set where I was genuinely afraid and I actually got sick to my stomach.” 

Smile 2 is slated to hit theaters on Oct. 18.
