In theory, I really want this. But I am trying to visualize the design, and it seems like it would be comparable to Betrayal at House on the Hill, only with a single board layout and a single scenario. The description makes it sound like co-op with a possible secret traitor, which is tricky to balance. Co-op without a traitor might be too easy, or else the presence of the traitor makes it too hard. Might still want it if the components really nail the setting and the gameplay successfully evokes the feel of the movie and/or book.
