Jane Schoenbrun’s first film, “We’re All Going to the World’s Fair,” showed us the horror of existing online and losing yourself within small communities. Their newest film is positioned as a more tangible fear of living in small areas and losing yourself in worlds of fiction. Schoenbrun taps into this unconscious fear of the younger generations more than any other director working today, and with the anticipation of their highest-budget project yet, Schoenbrun is carving out a unique spot for themself in the new wave of modern horror.
