The El Royale, once popular with the wealthy until losing its gambling license, is a hotel that straddles the California–Nevada border. In 1959, Felix O'Kelly hides a money bag under the floorboards of one of its hotel rooms. A man he recognizes arrives and shoots him dead. Ten years later, Catholic priest Daniel Flynn, singer Darlene Sweet, salesman Laramie Seymour Sullivan, and hippie Emily Summerspring arrive at the hotel, which is now run by a single employee, heroinaddict Miles Miller. Upon checking into the honeymoon suite, Laramie begins removing wiretaps but unexpectedly finds a second set as well. After stealing the hotel's master key, he discovers a secret corridor from which every room can be observed through one-way mirrors and filmed with a movie camera. From the corridor, Laramie sees Darlene singing, Daniel removing the floorboards of his room, and Emily holding a young woman captive. In the parking lot, Laramie calls into the Federal Bureau of Investigation, identify...

As examined by Kyle Kizu from The Hollywood Reporter, the filmography of Drew Goddard, the creator of Bad Times at the El Royale, has tackled several times the deconstruction of a specific genre. When focusing on the 2018 film, he said that it was the "most controlled and fruitful piece of deconstruction" from the filmmaker, as it was able to present its thesis, of "what looks plain and ordinary hides something beneath", with its opening scene. While The A.V. Club's Katie Rife noted that the...
Right and wrong
A major aspect of Bad Times at the El Royale was its visualization of each character's morality and if their actions were justified. One of its main cues to this was the presence of the California-Nevada border dividing the hotel. In one of the opening scenes, Darlene Sweet takes her time walking across the state line and only crosses it with the help of Father Daniel Flynn, never actually stepping on the line itself. However, characters such as cult leader Billy Lee calmly walk in between th...
Crisis of faith
From Vox, film critic Alissa Wilkinson listed the themes of Bad Times at the El Royale as tackling "religion, salvation, and who we really are", while writing that the film was about "humanity's drive to find redemption". Believing that the state line served as the "existential crossroads" each character was facing, she came to the conclusion that the hotel was a "stand-in for purgatory". Overall, she noted that the main point of the use of religion in the film was the idea that confessing wo...
Drew Goddard began writing the spec script to Bad Times at the El Royale in November 2016.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the script was only given to top studio executives, with potential buyers having to read it off a tablet before returning...
Goddard chose to spend more time developing his characters than looking for actors who would best fit the roles.

The marketing campaign from 20th Century Fox for Bad Times at the El Royale began on May 29, 2018, when "exclusive" images of the project were released and Drew Goddard said "real-life historical figures could turn up at the El Royale". A teaser for the film was publicized on June 7, 2018, with Entertainment Weekly calling it a "tense first look" and IndieWire stating that it managed to introduce an "eerie ensemble" while comparing its premise to Clue (1985) and the television series Room 104. On August 28, an official trailer was released, which Collider described as "fantastic" as it was "more delightful for the fact that it reveals pretty much nothing beyond the basic setup and the idea that none of these strangers is who they at first appear to be". In a trailer breakdown with Empire, who described it as an "instant blast of glossy genre intrigue", Goddard revealed the names of each character and said, "If it was really up to me, I'd say the less you know the better. I take very...
