Co-stars Cynthia Erivo and Jeff Bridges sat down with journalist KJ Matthews after a screening of Bad Times at the El Royale, to talk about the shock of the script and what it was like filming the crime mystery thriller.

When asked about the uniqueness of the film’s script both actors stated the script was intriguing.”It was nothing like I’ve ever read before. The surprises kept coming, and my eyes kept popping out of their sockets,” Erivo said. Bridges agreed and said that the film has a similar wow effect as Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction.

Tony award-winning Erivo also spoke about singing live during a scene and reworking a famous Isley Brothers song for the film.

Bad Times at the El Royale releases in theaters on Oct. 12.
