After creating the hit TV series “Lost,” writer/director Drew Goddard jumped into feature filmmaking with both feet in 2012 and made The Cabin in the Woods, which is easily one of the best movies of the twenty-first century. Since then, he’s settled into screenwriting by working on scripts for big budget Hollywood fare like The Martian and World War Z. But now, after four years of writing for others, Goddard makes a triumphant return to the director’s chair with the pulpy Bad Times at the El Royale.
