On the surface, Hush may seem like your typical home invasion thriller. But its simple premise only serves as the foundation for director/writer Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Absentia) and his co-writer/leading lady Kate Siegel to create a highly intelligent thriller with rare plausibility not typically found in the sub-genre. The film premiered just a scant few weeks ago in Austin, Texas for the SXSW Film Festival (our review here), and luckily audiences didn’t have to wait long to see for themselves.
Just ahead of the film’s global release on Netflix, today, April 8th, 2016, Modern Horrors chatted with Mike Flanagan and Kate Siegel on their very unique, yet highly entertaining writing process and the meticulous planning involved for creating an atypical level of intelligence.
