When she finished the shoot, she returned to her hotel room and collapsed in bed for a day.
"I just couldn't move," she said.
Now Berg faces another challenge. The Motion Picture Association of America gave the "Evil" trailer a "redband" rating for adult content, which "is kind of like a scarlet letter," said Kate Hubin, a spokesman for the movie's distributor, Lionsgate Films.
Often, the redband label means many commercial theaters choose not to show a film at all, Hubin added.
Berg, for her part, hopes Internet publicity will help draw viewers. She also hopes the movie will "promote change" in the way the diocese handles abuse allegations. "It would be a disservice to all the people who opened their old wounds up and shared them on camera if we didn't come together as a community and say, 'This is wrong," she said.
The film opens Oct. 13 in Los Angeles.
