It’s very rare to find emotional stakes like that in a horror film” said Rothe. “(With director Christopher Landon) I have to sing his praises because not only has he written this script that is so funny and dark and twisted and amazing but it also has truly, truly heartbreaking moments and moments of intense connection.”
