Sydney Sweeney is pretty busy this week as she prepares to host Saturday Night Live, but she made some time to swing by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to talk about her new movie, Immaculate, and... zombies? Yes!

The conversation started normal enough, with Host Jimmy Fallon asking the Euphoria actress about how her stint at SNL was going. Sweeney said that arriving for the week of meetings and rehearsals felt "like walking into camp."

"They all want to take care of you. They all want a great show," said Fallon, referring to the team at SNL. The Tonight Show Host then congratulated Sweeney on her recent box office hit, Anyone But You, which was released back in December but is still breaking box office records, recently passing the $200 million milestone.

"Congratulations, it is a massive hit. It keeps breaking records," said Fallon. "People love the rom-com. You brought it back. You crushed it."

Sweeney said she is "just so thankful everybody's loving it." When a movie is that much of a hit, the inevitable rumors of a sequel start, so when Fallon asked about the possibility of an Anyone But You 2, the actress teased, "Maybe like a high nine chance." We'll take those odds!

In addition to talking about SNL and Anyone But You, Sweeney was also on The Tonight Show to promote her new horror thriller, Immaculate. With the conversation turning to all things creepy, Fallon brought up a little-seen low-budget movie that Sweeney starred in when she was a kid, ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction (2010).

In the movie she played a young girl who becomes a zombie — a terrifying-looking one at that! — but revealed to the audience that she never actually saw ZMD because she was too young.

"You guys, I've never seen this movie. I was in it, but I wasn't allowed to watch it. I think I was 11 when I filmed it." Sweeney revealed to the audience. "I was so excited. I thought this was the coolest thing ever."

Sweeney had never seen ZMD, but Fallon fixed that by sharing a clip from the movie. While we don't want to spoil anything, let's just say it is a bonkers death scene that you will never see coming.

"That's an unbelievable scene," Fallon said after the clip played.

While you impatiently wait for another Anyone But You, check out Sweeney in her new movie, Immaculate, which hits theaters on March 22, and watch her host SNL on March 2, with musical guest Kacey Musgraves.
