Boone tells Collider: “When [Knate Lee and I] went to go tell Fox we wanted to do this movie, we made them a comic book. It was a PDF that pitched them kind of a trilogy of films where each one is its own unique kind of horror movie. The first one is the supernatural horror movie. I won’t say what the other two are, but they’re all horror movies, but a different horror movie each time.
