Drew Goddard, writer/director of 'Cabin in The Woods', is one of the highest regarded writers working at the moment. After scripting ‘World War Z’ and ‘The Martian’ (for which he was Oscar nominated), he returns to the director’s chair with his latest project, 'Bad Times at the El Royale'. After hitting us in the face with a darkly intriguing opening, Goddard takes the audience on a brilliantly entertaining and fantastically crafted journey of coincidence, misfortune and nasty occurrences.
Director Paul Feig is back after hits like Bridesmaids and Spy. Known for his comedies, this is his first attempt at a Thriller. Tragically, his attempts at ditching comedy aren't entirely successful, and instead this film becomes a hybrid of the two where either the jokes come in the way of the suspenseful mystery, or vice versa.
