Blumhouse has never produced a theatrically released horror movie directed by a woman — but hopes to

I believe in using directors who aren’t necessarily from horror, like Jordan Peele or [Halloween director] David Gordon Green.

Like last year’s Get Out or Lady Bird, Bad Times at the El Royale is a personal, palpable vision exploding in a genre we all know well. Polygon spoke to Goddard about how he funneled his inspirations, obsessions and quirks into the slow-

The Venom director opens up about *that* big plot hole – and explains why it was a mistake
