The questions will be answered by Drew Goddard ( who also directed The Cabin in the Woods) in the film Bad Times at the El Royale. It does have the feel to his previous movie. Someone, and some organization, is watching what is going on but are they also helping to revel the motivation of the seven and get something out of it?
Seven strangers, each with a secret to bury, meet at Lake Tahoe’s El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one fateful night, everyone will have a last shot at redemption… before everything goes to hell.
