This broadcast was a single-shot movie that was shot in real time as the serial killer responded to the viewers’ comments. This movie format blurs the line between reality and fiction.
Jason Blum from Blumhouse says about this live horror movie, “Hollywood looks backwards and tries to repeat. And we really try not to do that. So the only way to marry those two things is to keep the budgets low. Because if the budgets are low enough, it’s like, ‘Alright, fuck it, go try your weird new thing.”‘
