What a great script!
Let's start by telling the truth, which can be a rarity these days.
Horror as a genre is not a popular as it once was.
The psychologists and sociologists have an explanation for this.
First, the avalanche of social media and e-news has created a culture where it is hip and cool to be unafraid. This is the "whatever!" generation.
Secondly, horror has always been a mechanism for us to vicariously experience something we do not get in real life. Problem is, the modern world is so crazy, now we are getting all the horror we can handle without having to pay for a movie ticket.
So, the entire horror niche has become an inbred community that generally makes weak product for the other members of the community to rave about.
This is a rare exception.
One of the best scripts ... ever. Deft direction, and great performances.
The clever, unusual, story grabs you off the top and builds and builds.
