Bad Times at the El Royale

Drew Goddard, who turned the horror genre on its ear with The Cabin in the Woods, writes and directs this stylishly baroque crime thriller about seven mysterious strangers, each with a secret to bury, who all show up at a rundown hotel/casino on Lake Tahoe, circa 1969, looking for either trouble or redemption. Slow-building tension combines with some whiplash twists, resulting in one shockingly original, winkingly humorous mystery. Jeff Bridges, Chris Hemsworth, Dakota Johnson, and Jon Hamm are among the good-lookin' cast. 141 minutes R.
