While talking about what does the film look like as of now, Olsen said that the goal was for the film to feel more like a Sam Raimi movie, but, as per her own admission, it has become something much darker than that. While adding to the same, the actor even spoke about how has the director played around with certain technicalities of the camera in order to achieve the feel of a horror movie, but not what his other pieces of work that he has done in the West. She even went on to imply that there’s a constant sense of thrill and horror, which is only complimented by the kind of trickery that the makers have imbued into the film’s plot.
