    Sydney Sweeney’s first-ever horror project, ‘Immaculate‘ entertained viewers worldwide as everyone applauded her switch in genre and her brilliant work in the film. While many expected the film to have nudity, they were, in fact, disappointed when the film had almost no explicit scenes, and director Michael Mohan explains why.

    Mohan said that he didn’t want a reputation as the director who stripped Sweeney down unnecessarily, as the film, being a horror project didn’t really require nudity. He said, “Well, I don’t want to be known as the guy who makes movies where Sydney gets n*ked. I don’t want that reputation.”

    Sydney also has previously commented on the lack of X-rated scenes in the film, saying, “It didn’t serve the character. It’s always whether it serves the character or not. I’m living someone else’s life. So if it serves to the development or the emotional state of a character, then it makes sense. But she was a nun. It didn’t make sense.”
