“I loved being scared as a kid. I loved the darker side of humanity. That was in my brain, even from a very early age. I was always thinking, ‘What could be the scariest outcome of this situation?’ My cousins and I were kind of raised in a pack together—all girls. They always wanted to be princesses. I always wanted to be a witch. Or a killer.” The author Gillian Flynn, who wrote the screenplay for the new Steve McQueen thriller “Widows,” out this week, talks to Christopher Bollen about the origins of her attraction to mystery and horror.
