I’m not sure how comedic this is supposed to be, but however much comedy and horror they intended for the film has worked out regardless. It’s tricky to have a fully original film of any kind, but it can be easy to fall into tropes of a genre like horror or action or anything in between, but when you are able to hook us with a trailer for Edge of Tomorrow type of film in the horror/mystery world then you’re on the right track.
Blumhouse is easily the best production company to be at when you have a quality horror film worth making because this studio manages to make gold out of incredibly small budgets while still managing to get the talent tell and express a great story.
The title at first wasn’t anything I planned on taking seriously and to be honest, the trailer at the beginning seemed like a cliche waiting to happen, but just like that, we see the twist that still has a twist we need to figure out. It’s a horrific concept that feels way worse than fighting aliens or realizing that being an asshole weather man isn’t worth it.
