I would get stomach aches going there before because the place just freaks me right out,” she says. “I can’t even explain to you. You’d be standing there — and we filmed down in the tunnels a lot — and it was terrifying“.

You can’t work at Riverview and not believe in ghosts,” she adds. “It’s just crazy the energy that’s in that place.
