Since he has revealed to SR that the cast must build a family spirit that the audience clings to, he stressed the importance of empathy when it comes to building characters both inside and outside of horror projects.
“I think that’s just the core. The core of any movie, but for horror to work, you have to build empathy within the character. I think we had a couple of weeks before shooting, and we all tried to reach out, did a few outings and made sure there was a closeness within us naturally because you read it on screen. You want to feel that there is a lived family dynamic. I think the core of their emotions informs everything for the viewer because if you don’t feel for them, then you don’t want to follow them on their journey.”
